No, not me! Just the new pretty polish from Nicole by OPI! OPI has recently announced their new collection inspired by one of my favorite shows, Gossip Girl. And who of Manhattan’s elite wouldn’t want these?!
From Left to Right: Too Rich For You, Scandals Secrets and Sparkle, Party in the Penthouse, and Nicole… Spotted!
For me the collection lacks, well… range. I mean the collection is tiny but if you were to only have four polishes, why do two almost look identical? This reminds me of how they put two red polishes in the OPI Alice collection here. The names of the polishes fit the collection to Upper East Side perfection highlighting the lavish lifestyle, the drama and the omnipresence of sparkling diamonds through the shine and glitter in every bottle.
Too Rich For You and Party in the Penthouse differ in the base color Too Rich having a greener tint and Party in the PEnthouse being a straight deep cobalt color once on. Glitter polish has been extremely popular in 2010 from Lipmann’s Happy Birthday multicolor color to OPI’s Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter. I think Scandals Secrets and Sparkle will be an absolute hit come late summer when the light sparkles will compliment perfectly with tanned skin and any embellished sandals. Personally, I’m not a fan of dispersed glitter polish with no real color or base, so depending on the way Nicole… Spotted actually applies, it will either be a love it, or a leave it.
You’ll have to wait until August to get your AmEx black cards on this limited edition collection, but until then you can plan out the best Louboutins to match your pedicure, and decide whether the white or blue headband will best compliment your new manicure.
