Whilst on my travels in NYC, I managed to pick up a number of different polishes, including the OPI Nicole range - which I have so far not seen in the UK. I got a number of colours as they were on offer, and will be gradually updating my blog with them as I try them out.
First up was 'It Starts with Me' which is a shimmery pink/bronze colour. It is a lovely metallic colour, with great coverage after just one coat, but I used two with to and base coats. As with most of the OPI polishes, it is a great consistency, not too fluid, but not too thick either.
I did however have 2 problems (neither of which are material or would stop me using them!), one is the bottle shape, which is not standard - is has a thicker bottom rather that a 'normal' bottle shape, and I found this a little trickier to hold. The second was the brush which is a perfect stroke one. I think the idea is to be able to paint your nail in one stroke, and the brush has a tapered end - but I found this very annoying! I like me standard, or pro-wide brush by OPI! For those not great at applying lacquer, I can see why this may be helpful.
Anyway, I love the colour - and after flicking through my Scratch Magazine and seeing the article and cover using Fimo canes, I decided to have a play!! These are too thick I know, but will match the dress I am wearing tonight!
I used Lumos base and top coat, OPI's Nicole's It Starts With Me, Flower Fimo Cane and OPI Nail Adhesive
After Base and 2 coats of colour
Have you had success with Fimo slices or the Nicole range from OPI?
Hope you are all well and have a great weekend!!
