As promised, here is part 2 of the Nicole by OPI Carrie Underwood Collection. I was very excited to play with these sweet and feminine shades that truly depict country sweetheart Carrie Underwood. Here are my swatches and thoughts on the rest of the colors.
Nicole by OPI Carrie'd Away
Nicole by OPI Carrie'd Away is a pretty gold with dense micro-glitter. It looks quite blingy and festive.
Nicole by OPI Goodbye Shoes
Nicole by OPI Goodbye Shoes is a pretty greyish green creme. This is one of my favorites from this collection. It looks great on its own or paired with green and black glitter, like in the swatches below:
Nicole by OPI Goodbye Shoes with green and black glitter
Nicole by OPI Goodbye Shoes is just versatile, and I REALLY love the color.
Nicole by OPI American as Apple Pie
Nicole by OPI American As Apple Pie is a bright red cream. This is just so festive and bright, it's a good staple if you don't own a good red cream that applies easily.
Nicole by OPI Backstage Pass is a nice vampy plum with shimmer. I think I own colors similar to this, but I love this one because the formula is great!
Nicole by OPI Backstage Pass is gorgeous. This is also one of my favorites from this collection, apart from Goodbye Shoes and Some Hearts.
Nicole by OPI in Fisher Queen is a royal purple shimmer. This is not a favorite as I feel that I've seen these kinds of colors before.
All in all, though, this is a nice collection for those who want some staple reds, pinks and corals, with some vampies and glitter toppers thrown in.
I like Carrie Underwood as an artist, and I'm glad that the colors she chose truly depict her image as America's Sweetheart, but nothing too edgy and funky.
