Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl Collection: Nicole... Spotted!

Nicole by OPI Nicole...Spotted!
Last month I mentioned how excited I've been for the Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl collection (here) so of course I gravitated immediately to the in-store display. After mulling over the polishes for a while, I finally settled on Nicole... Spotted! and decided to pass on the other three colours. I suspect most people will be snapping up Too Rich For You, however, which is a duo-chrome blue/green.

Nicole... Spotted! is a glitter polish which contains varying sizes of glitter suspended in a jelly-like bluish-green base. The first coat goes on very sheer so I decided to apply thicker coats to see what I could get. My picture shows 3 relatively thick coats, which ended up relatively opaque. You could apply thinner coats to get a sheerer look.

All in all, application was easy, although it helps to wait a bit between coats to prevent dragging. I applied Seche Vite top coat to counteract the gritty-feeling that glitter polishes leave on the nails and make mine more smooth.

I think this is a great, unique polish and perfect for anyone who loves glitters. It looks great on its own, but I'm excited to try this layered over other polishes for a gradiant effect.


  1. Hello!
    I just saw your blog and I liked it, so I'll follow you.
    I love watching nail polish and designs, we also do makeup and fashion :)


  2. I also have this polish and love it! I did a blue gradient manicure and it turned out really amazing.
    I also got the other two blues from the collection (Too Rich For You and Party in the Penthouse), they are both equally gorgeous.
