Nicole by OPI: Wel-Kim to My World Review & Swatches

Hi, everyone! 

Today I have the six latest additions to the Kardashian Kolors collection. This collection consists of 1 glitter, 1 opalescent shimmer, and 4 creme nail polishes. There's quite a bit to cover, so let's get into it! ;)

"Nicole by OPI announces the launch of Wel-Kim to My World, a collection of new nail lacquers inspired by Kim Kardashian.  The line features six pastel-hued shades in white, pink, blue and honey tones that give nails a subtle pop of color. Lacquers Lights, Kim-era, Action! and Here Kim’s the Sun feature glitter and opalescent shimmer to create an added element of glitz."







Here Kim's the Sun
Kicking off this review, we have Here Kim's the Sun, an opalescent glitter. I love the fact that this glitter is so universal and would probably look great over any color. Use as a top coat to your existing mani to add a bit of sparkle and shine. I'm sure a black or dark base would help aid in the true beauty of this glitter. This was 2 coats and the glitters were dispersed evenly throughout the nail.


Lights, Kim-era, Action!
Oooh la la! Lights, Kim-era, Action is a gorgeous opalescent beauty. If pearls were turned into liquid, this is probably what they would look like, fabulous! In some lights/angles, you can see hints of pink and aqua. This was 2 easy coats and applied perfectly over each nail. Lights, Kim-era, Action! has made its way to my top 3 picks from this collection!


Others Pale by Kim-parison 
An off-white, sheer creme. OPBK require 3 coats for opacity, but the end result was well worth the extra effort. IMO, this color offers a clean and elegant color to your nails. Sophisticated and chic!

Kim Konfidential 
I have finally found the perfect mannequin colored nail polish that is close to my natural skin tone! Kim Konfidential is a gorgeous, beige nude that required 2 coats for opacity. The formula on this was perfection and I had not trouble with application. This is another color that has easily made its way onto my top 3 picks!


Up & Kim-ing Pink
LOL, Nicole by OPI did a great job naming these nail polishes! ;) Up & Kim-ing Pink is a beautiful, bubblegum pink that leans on the Pepto Bismol side. IMO, it looks fairly similar to OPI's Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj collection, but I can't say for sure that it is an actual dupe. Personally, when it comes to pink, I prefer more cool toned pinks. Up  Kim-ing Pink and Pink Friday are perfect examples. This was 2 coats and rounded off my top 3 picks! 


Nothing Kim-pares to Blue
Again with the names, genius! ;) NKTB is a cornflower blue that leans slightly onto periwinkle infused with fine, micro shimmers. This was 2 coats, but perhaps another coat would have evened out the color. Another beauty, that just missed my top 3 list. 

Up & Kim-ing Pink, Kim Konfidential, and Lights, Kim-era, Action!
This was determined by half of the nail polishes I personally enjoyed the most in each collection(s). Ex. If there are 6 nail polishes in 1 collection, 3 nail polishes will be chosen etc. DB Top Picks have passed the following 4 requirements: formula, application, pigmentation, and overall quality of the product.

Final Thoughts: Overall, I thought that these additional 6 shades were a great addition to the Kardashian Kolors Collection. For the most part, they are all very work appropriate colors that aren't too out there, if you know what I mean. Formula on these were great and had average dry time. Two out of the three colors required 3 coats due to sheerness. 

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Which colors are your top picks? Thoughts on this new collection?! I'd love to know down below!
