Lately, I've been agonising about the time it was taking for my polishes to arrive from the US. They usually come in 2 weeks tops, but the Christmas and New Year period must've really delayed it. A month had passed by and I was saddened to not see them arrive yet, but they came today - both of them! I also picked up the whole Essence Vampire Love collection at Target, so expect to see swatches of them soon.
A while back I contacted OPI about reviewing some of their polishes since I don't have any access to them and really would have liked to try them out. They were kind enough to send me a few from the Kardashian Kolour Collection and so I have 4 from the collection to show you.
Disco DollsDisco Dolls is a golden/bronze-y shimmer polish filled with micro-silver glitter/shimmer and small green, pink, teal, gold and silver glitter. Application was smooth and covered well with 2 coats. The brush is a little shorter than regular OPI brushes but have the same width (this applies for all the brushes in this post - I don't want to repeat myself!). I'm convinced this is a bronze/gold version of Excuse Moi! from the Muppet Collection, though Excuse Moi! has a lot more coloured glitter than Disco Dolls. This dries a little gritty, but nothing top coat can't fix! Pics show no topcoat.
Kendall on The Katwalk
Kendall on the Katwalk is a gorgeous mix of blue/teal, green and purple glitter suspended in a clear medium blue jelly base. Again, application was smooth and covered well in 2 coats. I absolutely love this polish! It's so sparkly and mermaid-like. Finish is gritty, but nothing that top coat can't tame. Pics show no top coat.
Kim-pletely in Love
Kim-pletely in Love is a sheer baby pink filled with tiny flecks that shift from teal to purple (and magenta on extreme angles). Formula applied smoothly, but was sheer. Pics show at least 3-4 coats and you can still see VNL. This would be great worn over a white polish or light pink creme to save polish. Polish dries with a beautiful shine - no top coat in the pics!
Kourt is Red-Y for a Pedi
Kourt is Red-Y for a Pedi is a bright fire-engine red jelly polish. I'm a sucker for reds, so I really like this polish - not to mention the shine is incredible! You can see my silhouette in the pics ;P Formula was smooth yet again and pictures show 3 coats, but as you can see, there is still some VNL. It's not too noticeable in real life though.
So that's all the polishes I have for today! Overall, I'm really liking these polishes and would expect the same quality and ease of use with other Nicole By OPI polishes. There were a lot of other pretty colours in the collection, but they were colours I might have something similar to, or colours that I didn't really favour.
I'm hoping that after I get all the tutorials I want done, I can finally show you some new nail art! Let's just hope I'm able to roll out of bed early, and whip my camera up while the sun is still up - don't want to be missing another day to film some tutorials for you all. Hope to see you all then :)
