Nicole by OPI Modern Family Swatches, Review Part 2

I posted Part 1 of my Swatches and Review of the Nicole by OPI Modern Family collection.  As I'd mentioned in the first part, this is a collection of 14 shades that feature the different shades of personalities of the characters depicted in the hit ABC comedy series Modern Family.

Here are the rest of the shades and swatches!

 
Nicole by OPI Luke of the Draw


Nicole by OPI Modern Family


Luke of the Draw is gorgeous.  It has very dense gunmetal glitter in a clear base, but the glitters can cover the entire nail in maybe just a couple of coats.  Love this.

Nicole by OPI Alex by the Books

Nicole by OPI Modern Family





Alex by the Books is a beautiful seafoam green cream.  It is the perfect canvas or background for any shade of glitter as you can see in the next photos.

Nicole by OPI Haley Good Lookin' over Alex by the Books


Nicole by OPI Modern Family




Haley Good Lookin' is a pretty glitter topcoat in a clear base composed of pink microglitter with sparse bigger pink hex glitter.  This is great over Alex by the Books because the light but vibrant background really features the pink glitter quite well.

Nicole by OPI Am I Making Myself Claire?


Nicole by OPI Modern Family

Am I Making Myself Claire? is really my kind of shade.  It's a lilac cream with a hint of greyness to it that really makes my warm skintone look clean and feminine.  I really like this a lot.  Very neutral yet it's very girly too.

Nicole by OPI Stand by Your Manny

Stand by Your Manny is a pretty shimmery periwinkle blue.  However, I find the formula quite finicky.  It was patchy in certain areas and really didn't cover them well.

Nicole by OPI My Jay or the Highway


Nicole by OPI Modern Family

Nicole by OPI Modern Family

My Way Or the Highway is your quintessential taupe cream.  I have many taupe creams but this is  still a nice one.  This applies well on the nails and does not streak or pool on the cuticles.  It's a classic taupe that looks great on anybody.

Nicole by OPI I Do De-Claire!

Nicole by OPI Modern Family



I Do De-Claire! is a soft frosty rose.  Not my color of choice because it looks too dated for me.  If it were a cream or jelly instead of a frost, I would be all over this shade.

All in all, there were a few misses for me, but I think Nicole by OPI Modern Family is my favorite collection out of all the collections Nicole by OPI has released in the recent months.  My favorites are Am I Making Myself Claire?, She’s Lily Something, Alex by the Books, Luke of the Draw, A Phil’s Paradise.

Modern Family lacquers will be available beginning January 2013 for $7.99 each at retailers including select Walmart, Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Kmart, Kroger, ULTA, H-E-B, Meijer and Duane Reade locations. In Canada, this line will be available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug.
