Nicole by OPI Wel-Kim to my World - Swatches and Review

Nicole Kim1
Pin ItI was really looked forward to this collection, because I liked all of the “Kim” polishes in the first Kardashian Kolors collection… but I have to say I feel pretty let down.  It really felt like a bridal collection.  Most were three coats… one was even four (Nothing Kim-Pares to You).

Nicole by OPI Up and Kim-ing PinkNicole by OPI Kim Konfidential

Up and Kim-ing Pink is your standard bubblegum pink.  Stellar Nicole formula, this was the only one that was two coats!

Kim Konfidential is a yellow-tinged nude.  If OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? was too cool or too beige for you, then Kim Konfidential may be perfect for you.

Nicole by OPI Lights, Kim-era, Action!Nicole by OPI Nothing Kim-pares to Blue

Lights, Kim-era, Action! is a gorgeous white shimmer with a green flash that I could not seem to capture on camera.

Nothing Kim-pares to Blue was my favorite of the bunch, but it was crazy sheer.  Here I have built it up to four coats.  The flash that I used made this look a little brighter than it is, in real life it has more of a dusty quality (but not near as dusty as the OPI Holland Blues).

Other's Pale by Kim-Parison was a nice, squishy white.  It only took three coats to build it up to opacity.

Here Kim's the Sun is a sparse, iridescent glitter.  In the picture above I used just one coat.

Wel-Kim to My World will be available April 2012 for $7.99 each at retailers including CVS, Duane Reade, Harmon, Sears, ULTA and Wegmans. In Canada, this line will be available for $10.99 each at Jean Coutu, Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart. 

Will you be picking up any of these polishes?
