Amor de Lacquer: Nicole by OPI Spring Shades, Exclusively for Target

Target Beauty lovers rejoice! Nicole by OPI has added 4 new stunning shades to their already impressive lineup. These polishes are exclusive to Target and are totally complimentary to the Spring season.

Great Minds Pink Alike is such a nice and shimmery pink. It has just a touch of coral in it but the subtle magenta shimmer makes it lean more on the pink side. It also has a bit of a squishy jelly finish. Jelly finishes make everything better. True story.


Purple Yourself Together Tee hee! I’m not sure what the name of this polish implies. Is it supposed to be “Pull yourself together”? Anywhoovers, this is dynamic purple polish. Very few of these exist so if you’re a fan of purples, I’d snag this one up with the quickness. A medium dark purple with gold shimmer like this is so elegant and just screams “royalty”. ¡Me gusta!

 

Look At Me, Look At Me is a silvery rainbow glitter with a whole ‘lot of personality. It’s got a heavy silver base but I also see a ton of burgundy glitter too. It’s a pretty rad glittuh polish.



That’s Totally Red-ical! is the only shade from this bunch that didn’t wow me too much. It’s a pretty candy apple red but once you’ve seen one red, you’ve kinda seen them all, ya know? The perk for this one? It applies beautifuuuuully.


Must Haves

-Great Minds Pink Alike. Because it’s so jelly ‘n awesome.

I only used 2 coats for each polish and they all applied with no problems. Nicole by OPI polishes are just as fantastic as OPI. You can grab these for about $7 at Target stores nationwide.

Amor de Lacquer: Nicole by O.P.I. Kardashian Kolors Spring collection


Ooooh la laaaa, pretty new polishes from the Kardashian Kolors line. There are 7 of these and they look to be perfect for Spring and Summer. I spy a vampy and while vampy shades are typically worn around the Fall and Winter seasons, why says you can’t rock ‘em in April? Woot! Oh, and I know nothing about the Kardashian clan, y’all. I’m not a fan of much reality TV. I like before’s and after’s but following peoples’ lives is quite the snooze fest to me. But anywhoovers, let’s get on with the polishes.

Paparazzi Don’t Preach is a pinky peach that has more rose to it than my camera is showing you. I actually really like it. I don’t have anything like this in my collection so this color was quite the treat. It pops nicely against my skin, uh? It took a good 3 coats for this polish to apply with an opaque finish.

Ladies In The Limelight is a yellow-lime that is quite reminiscent of others shades. It’s not as green as OPI’s Who The Shrek Are You and since OPI’s Did It On ‘Em is a dead ringer for Who The Shrek Are You, it isn’t quite a dupe for Ladies In The Limelight either. I like this one better. It’s brighter and better and doesn’t look like barf. Which is always a good thing. Woot!

 

One Big Happy Fame-ily is a lavender shimmer and it’s all dainty and girly. I wasn’t head over heels in love with this shade but it’s pretty enough.


Back To Reality T.V. is a periwinkle with hot pink shimmer. It is awesooooome. I can’t put my finger on the Zoya polish it reminds me of, but man, this baby is pretty. If I wasn’t obsessed with polishing my nails daily, I could see myself rolling with this one for a while.

Strike A Pose is one bright orange-y coral. It’s gorgeous! It’s soooooo bright. Which is good thing considering I just adore bright colors on my toes. This is definitely my favorite of the bunch.

Our Fuchsia’s Lookin’ Bright has the cutest name ever. It’s a pretty pink. Nothing you probably haven’t seen before but it’s the norm to have a pink in Spring collections. I’m just glad this one is brighter than most. 

Smile for the Glam-era is a deep and rich plum with subtle shimmer. I actually wore this one TWICE this week just because I didn’t want to take it off. I love the idea of wearing vampy polishes in “not vampy polish” season. And while I applied 3 coats, this baby was ready for a top coat after the 2nd coat. I love how opaque it is. 

Must Have’s:
-Paparazzi Don’t Preach: Don’t knock this shade yo. It is amaziiiiiing. Especially for days when you want a lil’ something without overdoing it.
-Back To Reality T.V. Just because it’s sooooo unique.
-Strike A Pose. This shade is popppppiiiiin’!

I applied 3 coats for each of these polishes and didn’t use a top coat. I’m impressed. While some of the shades are repeats (i.e. Ladies In The Limelight and Our Fuchsia’s Lookin’ Bright), the others are nice and not so predictable for Spring. These go for $7.99 and they are exclusive to CVS locations nationwide.

Amor de Lacquer: Nicole by OPI. Target exclusives that you so need.

Finally! My nails want to act normal and not chip every 3.2 seconds. They aren’t as long as I’d like but they’re polishable and I’ll take ‘em. I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed any Nicole by OPI polishes. Which is pretty funny because I’ve been loving this brand forever. Nicole is the younger and more affordable sister of OPI. While OPI polishes can go for $9-$10, you can snag Nicole for $7.

Check out some of the gorgeous shades sitting on Target shelves….



Green Up Your Act is one of my favorite Nicole by OPI polishes. This cream applies absolutely stunning. It reminds me of my murky hunter green.

If you’ve seen one foil-y bright red, you’ve seen them all. Doesn’t make this one any less purty though.

This blue reminds me of a pair of jeans I had when I was 15. They were these dark denim sparkly jeans. This polish is the perfect recreation of that fashion bomb.

I couldn’t quite capture the true color of this polish but it certainly isn’t purple like a grape. Not sure where Nicole by OPI got that one from. If anything, I found it to be a dark amber with bronze shimmer. It’s the perfect Fall color!

I used 2 coats for each polish and didn’t have any problems. You can grab these Target exclusive at Target stores and on Target.com.

Which shade is your fav?
