Nicole by OPI has released five new polishes for fall, available exclusively at Target and Target.com, and I am going to share my thoughts on four of them with you today!

Nicole by OPI Iris My Case 3Nicole by OPI Iris My Case

Iris My Case is a gorgeous duochrome that shifts from violet to a bronzey-mauve.  I have already compared it to China Glaze No Plain Jane and decided while they are dupes, I like the Nicole by OPI formula and the brush better.

Nicole by OPI Mer-Maid for Each OtherNicole by OPI Mer-Maid for Each Other 2

Mer-Maid for Each Other is the second duochrome in the collection, with shifts from a gold-green to a teal green-blue.  This polish applies like a chrome, which means you do have to be careful of brush strokes, but the results are worth it.  The light literally bounces off it!  This is not a dupe for Chanel Peridot, which is more green-gold.  Many of you have asked me to compare it to China Glaze Unpredictable, but alas I do not own that polish yet.

If the Blue Fits is a deep blue shimmer filled with duochromatic particles that are easier to see in the bottle than on the nail.  While it applied well, I was truly underwhelmed by this polish.

Nicole by OPI Just Busta Move 2Nicole by OPI Just Busta Move

Just Busta Move is a very complex polish.  It has a very sheer burgundy-brown base and is filled with teal, copper and blue micro shimmer.  I really really like this one!  Plus the name is awesome.  Who else besides me knows all the words to Young MC’s Just Busta Move?

What do you think of these colors?  Do you like the short wide Nicole by OPI brush as much as I do?
