Nicole By OPI Selena Gomez Collection, Swatches and Review

 Hi Everyone,  it's Friday...Yay!!

Nicole By OPI has been putting out the collections haven't they? I'm not complaining.  Today I'm sharing with you the Selena Gomez Collection containing 14 fabulous bold and vibrant colors and glitters.

See single swatches after the jump...

                                          NOPI Spring Break
Spring Break, bright barbie pink, a crelly finish.  I love it against my skintone.  I used two coats.

                                           NOPI MI Fantasia
Mi Fantasia, blue microglitter with holographic small bar glitter in a clear base.  I used one coat over Spring Break.

                                            NOPI Pretty In Plum
Pretty In Plum, purple with purple shimmer, the shimmer glows very pretty.  I used two coats.

                                             NOPI Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams, purple microglitter with turquoise and silver hexagon glitter in a clear jelly base.  I'm loving this color combo with Pretty In Plum.  I used one coat.

NOPI Scarlett
Scarlett, red with lots of gold shimmer.  Sometimes it looks like a bold pink fuchsia.  Really pretty and it's one of my favorites in the collection.  I used two coats.

NOPI Kissed At Midnight
Kissed At Midnight, gold microglitter with gold and silver hexagon glitter in a clear jelly base.  I used one coat over Scarlett.

NOPI Love Song
Love Song, lilac purple crelly, very pretty purple and a great formula.  I used two coats.

NOPI Heavenly Angel
Heavenly Angel, holographic shard glitter in a clear jelly base.  Some of the shards do not lie flat on the nail.  I used one coat over Love Song.

NOPI Hit The Lights
Hit The Lights, Ha Ha love the name the lights really hit this, it's a canary yellow creme, I love this shade of yellow so bold and it makes a statement.  The first coat was a bit streaky but the second coat evened it out nicely.

NOPI Confetti Fun 
Confetti Fun, yep it's confetti in a bottle with red, blue, gold, silver and green with multiple size glitter in a clear jelly base.   I think it looks striking over Hit the lights.  I'll be doing a jelly sandwich with these soon.  I used one coat.

NOPI Selena
Selena, a coral peach tone, I love this color and because of the crelly finish.  I used two coats.

NOPI Stars At Night
Stars At Night, silver holographic bar glitter in a clear jelly base.  I used one coat over Selena.

NOPI Naturally
Naturally, bubblegum pink crelly finish.  Thick formula first coat with some patchiness, second coat evened it out.  

NOPI Inner Sparkle
Inner Sparkle, pink, lavender and silver glitter with silver microglitter in a clear base.  I love this glitter and it looks great over Naturally.  I used one coat.

Overall:  Love the crelly finishes, the colors and the glitters.  Had some trouble with the shard glitters not wanting to lie flat and some streakiness with Hit The Lights and Naturally but after the second coat they are fine.

These are available for $7.99 each at retailers including select Target, Walmart, CVS, K-mart, Rite Aid, ULTA, Sears, Meijer, Fred Meyer, Kroger and H-E-B locations. In Canada, this line will be available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug.

Zoya Lovely Spring 2013 Collection Swatches and Review

Good Morning,

I have Zoya Lovely Collection to share with you guys.  They are some lovely pastels to get you in the mood for springtime.

Zoya Lovely Collection
See single swatches after the jump...
Zoya Piaf
Piaf, a pale lemon yellow with silver shimmer.  It's different then any other pastel yellow that I own.  I rather like it.  Used two coats.
Zoya Gie Gie
Gie Gie, I'm not sure which is the correct spelling.  The press release has Gei Gei, my bottle has Gie Gie Lol!  a pretty pale girly pink with silver shimmer.  Very flattering!  I used two coats.
Zoya Julie
Julie, light lavender with silver shimmer.  This is so pretty makes me think of lilacs.  Used 2 coats.
Zoya Blu
Blu,  a pretty sky blue creme it's one of my favorites to wear in the spring.  I used two coats.
Zoya Neely
Neely, a mint green creme it's so soft and lovely.  I used two coats.  
Zoya Jacqueline 
Jacqueline,  zoya is calling it a magnolia nude creme, and it's just that.  I used three coats.
Overall: First I want to apologize my swatches aren't the greatest.   I love all the pastel colors.  The shimmers were a dream to apply.  The cremes were a little tricky due to some streakiness.  I did apply topcoat on all the cremes to even them out. 
The collection can be purchased at

Pink Wednesday: Button Down Fuchsia Coat

Good Morning, Priti NYC  Mulberry Jam is such a gorgeous glitter and I think it's perfect to wear on Pink Wednesday.  I wanted a design so I added black dots down the middle of my nails.

First I added on a large dot below my cuticles.  Then I added on smaller ones.  I think it's really cute, looks like a button down fuchsia coat wouldn't you agree?

I love this glitter it's bold and it sparkles
What are your thoughts?  What are you wearing on Pink Wednesday?

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠)
