Happy hump day, beauties!
Today, I have the Selena Gomez Nicole by OPI collection. Ever since I saw the first promo pics for this collection, I knew that this would be a winner all around! I'm a huge fan of delicate, feminine colors and these are just that! So, did the pics live up to my expectations?! Keep reading, loves! ;)
Hit the Lights is a bright, canary yellow creme. In true yellow fashion, application was a bit streaky. I used two generous coats below, but a third would have eliminated the remaining streaks.
Confetti Fun is a combination of glitters in a shimmer base. I own tons of rainbow glitters, but this is probably one of my favorites and the added shimmer base takes the cake. Application was perfect and glitter distribution was on point!
Selena is a peachy, pink with an added subtle shimmer. It's fairly faint and unnoticeable unless you stare at it up close and because of that, I almost missed that detail. It's a very feminine and delicate color. This was two easy coats.
Sweet Dreams is a clear base packed with lavender glitter, small aqua hexes, and medium silver hexes. I'm a huge fan of aqua and purple, so it was no surprise that this was one of my favorite glitters from the collection. Application was smooth and glitter distribution was perfect. The image below was one coat over Selena.
Naturally is a soft, bubble gum pink with the same subtle shimmer as Selena. Again, the shimmer is very faint. This applied nicely in two coats.
Inner Sparkle is a clear base packed with gold glitter, and pink and lilac hexes. I can't wait to rock this during Spring! This was perfect in one coat.
Spring Break is a toned down magenta that dries to an ultra glossy finish. I know that this isn't the most unique color, but there's just something about it that makes it my second favorite from the creme colors. Application was great and nearly opaque in one coat- I used two to play it safe.
Kissed at Midnight is a clear base packed with gold glitter, small gold hexes, and medium silver hexes. At first glance of the bottle I assumed it was all gold, but if you take a closer look, there are in face silver hexes. This was my least favorite from the glitters just because I thought that it lacked a certain "wow" factor, that the others possessed. This did, however; applied effortlessly in one coat.
Love Song is a gorgeous lilac with again, the same subtle shimmer.as Selena and Naturally. The formula on this was smooth and was opaque in two coats.
Mi Fantasia is a clear base packed with lavender glitter and holo string glitter. I am completely loving the combination used below! Application was great and glitter placement was even greater! This was one generous coat.
Pretty In Plum is very reminiscent of a lighter version of an eggplant with a subtle shimmer. I wasn't too big on this color and was my least favorite from the solid colors in this collection. This did, however; apply nicely in two easy coats.
Heavenly Angel is a clear base packed with iridescent shredded/flakie glitter. Looking at the bottle and all its iridescent glory, I could't wait to apply it on my nails, but much to my disappointment, the application was horrible! I had an extremely difficult time loading the glitter onto the brush and I found my self fishing in and out only to end up with sparse glitter distribution. :(
Scarlet is beautiful, reddish fuchsia packed with micro golden glass flecks. My absolute favorite from the entire collection! Application was smooth and opaque in one generous coat.
Stars at Night is a silver string glitter and holo bar glitter. The formula on this was a bit thick, but did not effect the application process. This was one easy coat.
Soild: Scarlet, Spring Break, Love Song
Glitter: Confetti Fun, Sweet Dreams, Mi Fantasia
