Nicole by OPI - Selena (Selena Gomez Collection) Fresh Paint Quickie.

It's that time again....

Fresh manicure!

This time I just went for one color, a new one I had picked up at CVS.

Nicole by OPI, as well as OPI, frequently do celebrity collaborations and this is one of their latest which features Selena Gomez :)

Originally I had only picked up glitter polishes from the line but CVS was running a sale (I believe it was buy 2 Nicole by OPI get $5 Extra Bucks) so I couldn't resist!

The color I chose is called 'Selena' which is a really pretty peachy coral color with some subtle sparkle. Surprisingly I have nothing in my collection that is this color. The ones I own are either more orange or just overall darker so it was a nice addition.

Unfortunately this was not the easiest polish to work with - kind of on the thick side yet took 4 COATS to achieve an even and opaque look. Also none of the little glitters show up, which isn't a big deal for me since I prefer cream polishes but heck if it's in there it'd be nice if it made an appearance!

Overall I think it still looks nice and if you are just dying over the color go ahead and scoop it up but I really wasn't impressed with the way it applied nor do I like to have to apply soooo many coats. (It's not even like you can really wear this polish sheer - it's not thin, just applies unevenly until you build it up)

I'd probably give this polish a 3 out of 5. 


I am wearing this polish in my latest YouTube video if you are interested in seeing what the color looks like on me. 

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you've enjoyed : )

See you back here (hopefully) tomorrow!
