I have several bottles of Nicole by OPI but this is the first time I buy a shade from the Kardashian collection. I am really not a fan of them and honestly try to stay away from anything thy endorse but as I was looking through the shades available ~Nothing Kim-Pares to Blue~ kept catching my eye. I am usually a huge fan of OPI so I thought ... what do I have to loose?!? I got home and went through my regular polish routine of buffing my nails, applying a basecoat and then proceeding with colour. In the photo I have 2 thick coats of polish and it still left bare streaks on my nails! This is not a transluscent shade, there is no reason for it to not cover properly. I added 2 more coats of polish today and finally got it to be opaque but it took 4 coats!!! That's ridiculous on a $10 bottle of polish!
Becoming 1 Of My Fav Collections
I was kinda hesitant when i heada bout this collection just becuz im over the whole kardashian movement but I started out with 1 and now i have alomst the whole Kardashian Kollection lol! The color are so pretty and the formula is good too. My 2 favs are Back to Reality..TV and Disco Dolls.
I just got one of the Kardashian Kolor's for my birthday today! It's "Listen To Your Momager!" I absolutely love it! It's a gorgeous inky blue colour with gorgeous shimmer. Two coats is all you need! It goes on very opaque and has great shine! They're $9.99 each (in Canada) and worth it! Can't wait to get some of the other colours, a few of them are quite unique!
NEWLY ADDED: I really should have waited until I had taken the polish off before I reviewed it... It stained my nails blue!! I use 100% Pure Acetone Nail Polish Remover, and after getting it off, I swiped & swiped with a clean cotton ball, and my nails now look like I'm dead, and it won't come off... So yes it's a gorgeous colour, but there are many other blue's just as nice that don't stain your nails....
"Follow Me on Glitter" is a dark shade with a lot of glitz and glam :)
I love OPI and went looking for a NYE color. Thankfully, I found the Kardashian line which includes "Follow Me on Glitter" which is packed with black base, black glitter, silver glitter, and subtle pops of pink, blue and green. Most of the swatches I've seen look more metallic and silver than the nail polish actually looks. I really, really loved the color. However, it dries rough (even when I used OPI's Chip Skip top coat) but lasts for a few days without chipping. I had no problem removing the color when I wanted to try a different shade.
Rainbow in the S-Kylie and Have a Heart
The first, Rainbow in the S-Kylie, is a wonderful polish, easy to get on and, with a bit of work, easy to get off, looking beautiful with all the multicolored glitter and even thick enough that with more than one coat it should cover your nails completely. The second, Have a Heart, is a bit harder to work with, but the red-pink heart-shaped glitter is worth it in my opinion. It needs more coats to get many hearts on and lots of tricks are needed to make it easier, but it's an absolutely gorgeous overcoat for pretty much any color.
What's the hype?
This is the first product that I've ever tried out from OPI. I'm not amused. I have healthy, natural nails. Sometimes I use a base coat. I use Seche Vite top coat. I never use just ONE color, or brand, on my nails at a time. OPI's polish is ALWAYS the first to chip. The formula was thin and uneven. I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Maybe it is just my luck? I only have 3 OPI products. I love the colors. But, the quality is not worth the price tag.
