Nicole By OPI Carrie Underwood Collection Swatches, Review Part 1

Press sample


Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection
I was able to play with the Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood collection. The colors are mostly girly and sweet that really suits Carrie Underwood's America's sweetheart image. This is a huge 14-piece collection, so I wil have to divide this into two parts. Below are my swatches and thoughts on each color.


Nicole by OPI Sweet Daisy
Nicole by OPI Sweet Daisy is a pretty peach cream that is sort of dusty. This is a nice shade as a spring color. I can also use this as a background for some of my nail stamping art. As you can see in the swatches below, it also works as a nice background for glitter.
Nicole by OPI Lips are Dripping Honey over Sweet Daisy

Nicole by OPI Lips are Dripping Honey is a nice holo glitter in a clear base. This is such a pretty glitter topper! I can see this lookin great over any base color.
Nicole by OPI Some Hearts

Nicole by OPI Some Hearts is probably the prettiest shade of this collection. It looks like a watermelon red t me. This glided smoothly on the nailbed as well.

Nicole by OPI Party Bus over Some Hearts



Nicole by OPI Party Bus with the huge flower glitter is so pretty! I am surprised that a mainstream brand actually thought to include large flower glitters that I only see in indie polish brands.

Nicole by OPI Color Me Country

Nicole by OPI Color Me Country is a girly, dainty yellow-based pink. This would work great with some spring nail art/glitter looks that I will be posting soon.

Nicole by OPI Sing You Like a Bee

Nicole by OPI Sing You Like a Bee looks weird on my skintone. It's a yellow-white micro-glitter. This is my least favorite in the collection. It does not look flaterring on my skintone at all.

Nicole by OPI Love My Pups

Nicole by OPI Love My Pups is such a clean-looking pinky-beige jelly. I layered black and white glitter over this, and it looked amazing!





As for the formula, the creams virtually apply themselves. I am really liking the Nicole by OPI's creme formula. Since the mother company is OPI, I am not surprised, as OPI has the most dreamlike nail polish cream formula. Nicole by OPI is no different. The glitter toppers are pretty too, and I am glad the glitters are not as sparse as what I would expect from mainstream brands.

Watch out for Part 2 of the NIcole by OPI Carrie Underwood collection swatche and review!
