Nicole by OPI It's All About the Glam

Tonight I have a polish from a brand which I haven't share with you before, though I have several polishes from this line-- Nicole by OPI, which I guess is kind of like the teen version of OPI. Like OPI, they team up with celebrities to create polish lines and the polish I have tonight is from one of their most recent collaborations. This is All About the Glam from the Kardashian Kolor collection. Yes, those Kardashians. I know, right? I'm not a fan but they did create a cool collection of polishes, of which I had to buy several. And by several, I mean a lot. 

All About the Glam is a sheer soft white polish with silver shimmer. Like many white polishes, it is a little streaky but you can make it opaque. Here I used four (yes, four) thin to medium coats to obtain opacity and even everything out. Even with the number of coats, I like this polish a lot. It dries quickly and I didn't have any issues with bubbling despite how much polish I had to use. Using a light touch helped too.

All About the Glam is pretty and soft. I have come around to the idea of wearing white polish, and I like this because it's not a stark white. The shimmer is pretty and strong.

If you like this polish, they generally retail for around $8 and you can find them at Ulta, Target and other drugstores. You can also probably easily find them on Amazon or eBay for comparable prices.

  4. I, unfortunately, kind of love the Kardashians in a "they are so ridiculous, I need to watch" sort of way. And the stupid polish is pretty, so I have several from their collections.

    I always say "i'm not going to buy NOPI anymore because I hate the bottles" but I always find a color that I just love! Drat!

    1. The NOPI bottles are so terrible. Who thought they were a good idea?
