Nicole by OPI ♥ CVS Exclusives ♥ Swatches and Review

Today I have 7 new Nicole by OPI polishes that are exclusive to CVS!  Don’t have a CVS near you?  Don’t fret (I don’t either) because these polishes are available on CVS.com - and they are on sale for $6.39!

Nicole by OPI Don't Over Pink ItNicole by OPI Feeling Grapeful

Pin ItDon’t Over Pink it is a yellow based pink “squishy” crème.  The first coat went on very sheer but it was even by the third coat.  I like that this pink doesn’t wash out my skin.

Feeling Grapeful is a really pretty purple leaning fuchsia that only needed two coats.  It reminds me of an older OPI shade, but I can’t quite put my finger on which one… 

Nicole by OPI A Pinker Shade of PaleNicole by OPI Personally Speaking...

A Pinker Shade of Pale is a very sheer light pink metallic frost.  Definitely use a ridge filling base coat with this one - which I failed to do.  Unfortunately I can see a lot of brushstrokes with this one.

Personally Speaking… is a dusty rose version of A Pink Shade of Pale but with a much better formula.  The color, however, reminds me of a grandma.

Nicole by OPI Always a Silver LiningNicole by OPI Marooned in Paradise

Always A Silver Lining is a really cool polish.  You will probably need to click on the picture to see them, but there are tiny gold glitter in the silver shimmer base!  This one I used three coats.

Marooned in Paradise tricked me!  I thought it was a crème, and therefor was confused when it needed three coats.  Not until I edited the pictures did I see the hidden shimmer!

Nicole by OPI I Sea You and Raise YouNicole by OPI CVS Exclusives

I Sea You and Raise You is a bright blue crème that practically applied itself  Only two coats and it was perfect.  It did seem to me to be the old ball in this bunch!  But who cares, I love a great blue polish.

♥ MUST HAVES:  Feeling Grapeful & Always A Silver Lining
♥ NICE TO HAVE:  I Sea You and Raise You and Don’t Over Pink It
♥ SKIP:  A Pinker Shade of Pale and Personally Speaking…
