Nicole by OPI New Core Colors For 2014 – Part 1




And another week starts up again. I wasn’t able to go to work this morning because my allergies continued to torture me. I took some Benadryl last night because my face and eyes were swollen like crazy. Then this morning I still couldn’t open my eyes all the way. Ahhh….this stupid weather is going to be the end of me. Oh my glob, I almost forgot that The Following is back on TV!!! I just saw the first episode on my Hulu queue and I nearly pissed myself with excitement. I was so nervous that FOX would cancel this show just like every other awesome show (Dollhouse anyone?).  I always go off on TV tangents, don’t I? I’ve completely stopped watching any kind of reality TV so now I’m watching a few dramas, mainly: The Following, Scandal and The Black List. I may watch a few other shows here and there, but I don’t follow any of them religiously. So today I have some awesome new polishes to share with you. Last week I received an amazing polish package which included the Nicole by OPI New Core Colors For 2014. Since there are 15 new colors, I decided to break up the post into 3 separate parts to showcase 5 polishes at a time. For today’s post, I have picked my 5 favorites to share with you, but it was sooo hard to pick 5 colors because I loved so many of them. Let’s take a look at the first 5 pretties, shall we?

The consistency of all these polishes is superb. They are all super smooth and apply beautifully. I would like to mention that Teal Me Something New stains like a mofo, but I didn’t wear any base coat so that’s my bad. Even though my pictures don’t really show it, Emerald Empowered is a duochrome that flashes green and blue—very pretty! All of my swatches show two coats of polish and top coat. The darkest color, This Blue Is So You! could almost be a one coater which is always a welcome surprise. We’ve seen so many of these dark and smoky navy blues lately, and I’m still not tired of them. These new nail lacquers should be available now for $7.99 each at retailers including select Walmart, Target, CVS, Kmart, Kroger, ULTA, H-E-B, Meijer and Duane Reade locations. In Canada, these shades will be available for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug.

What do you think of these first 5 new colors? I can’t wait to show you the rest later this week because they are all so gorgeous and they are mostly crèmes!!! My favorite!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

        hehehe…sounds like me with the “likes” in my sentences.

      Yes, it was a two coater, but I used thicker coats because I was anticipating issues but it turned out well. It’s very pretty.

    Love the colors! And don’t worry, I’m still bitter about Dollhouse too!

    1. 22 January, 2014 at 12:40 am

      Yes!! Let’s join together. I still haven’t given up hope that it may come back somehow. I know…I’m nuts.

    The fact that you are awake at all is astounding to me. I’d need approximately 10-12 hours of sleep after Benadryl!
    I think I’d like The Following and The Black List, but I’m always so behind. Everyone gets into a show and 3 seasons later I’m like, huh, maybe I shod check that out!
    So, these are all scrumptious. I want them all but the pink (baby pink and I are just not friends). I think I need I Shop Mintage just for the name. That’s totally normal, by the way. 😉
    I hope you feel better! Looking at these made me feel better, haha.

      You must watch those two shows! I think that you need to save all your WANT for the Carrie Underwood Collection. I’m still wondering what will happen when you come across it…will you break?

    I really like teal me and mintage. I just have so many colours in that range that I can’t see myself running out for them which is super sad because purdy.

    1. 22 January, 2014 at 12:31 am

      They are pretty but I agree with you…we all probably have similar colors. Still gorgeous, though.

  7. 20 January, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    Ok, I like these way more than I expected. Damn YOU CYNTHIA….I boycott your blog for the sake of my bank account and storage. With that said, I really like I shop mintage and emerald empowered…I’m interested to see the other 2 posts now…I withdraw my boycott.

      I’m sorry! 😛 Well, not really. These were the colors I was MOST excited about but there are so really great shades in the other 10 polishes. I’ll have them up later this week so you can hate me some more.

    oh my gosh! All of those are so gorgeous! I need to get over my dislike of the bottles and just buy some NOPI! Your swatches are absolutely superb!

    1. 21 January, 2014 at 5:16 am

      Thank you so much! I also had to get over the bottle shape but man…that took a couple of years. lol

  9. 21 January, 2014 at 5:35 am

    It hink i would love to work in a nail polish compan giving names to products.. I love to speak using puns Lol..

    I loved the colors, but there’s nothing different about them.. The navy blue? It looks a lot like incognito in sausalito (my favorite polish for my toes, my poor toe nails have a weird color.. Nice thing summer is back and i’m doing neon toe nails lately)

    Cant wait to see the other swatches

    1. 22 January, 2014 at 12:25 am

      I would love that job too! I would love to come up with nail polish collection inspiration too. I think you’re right–these colors are dupeable. One of the things I realize now is that because we have so much polish, I don’t even think about dupes anymore because basically we have dupes for every polish. You just can’t avoid it when your hobby involves buying polish, polish and more polish.

    I absolutely love “I Shop Mintage” but I cannot stand NOPI bottles! Ever since someone in the Hobby Polish Bloggers group called them droopy boobies, I can’t stop seeing that every time I see the bottle. haha! I guess I will just look for a dupe for that one. 😛

      Droopy boobies…lol!!! I’ve made my peace with the bottle shape but it still annoys me at times.

    Your nails are perfect!! What topcoat do you use? These are all so shiny!!!
