With all the pretty polish colors out there, sometimes it’s easy to forget that using a good base coat and top coat is going to be essential to keep that mani looking shiny, new and fresh. I realize that most people aren’t like me, meaning that you don’t all change your polish daily, so longevity is always important to the average consumer. This year we have some new offerings to choose from: Nicole by OPI New Top Coats & Treatments For 2014. Let’s take a look at some new products, shall we?

DSC00680Now let’s see these in action!

Nicole by OPI 3-IN-1aFirst up is the 3-in-1 Base, Top Coat & Strengthener. This is a pretty convenient product because it’s actually 3 products in one so this is perfect if you’re traveling and don’t want to carry around multiple bottles. It gives a nice shine and it worked great to smooth and prep my nails before applying my nail color. Here I have applied it over OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (purchased myself).

Nicole by OPI Quick Dry Top Coat 1aTop coats…ahhh top coats! When you find one that you love and works for you, stick with it! I found that while this top coat is nice and smooths my polish nicely, it’s not a shiny as others that I use. I also found that it is thicker than what I normally prefer. Here I have applied it over OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (purchased myself) and Butter London Tart With A Heart (press sample).

Nicole by OPI Matte Top Coat 1aNext up is a Matte Top Coat which I think had a nice consistency and wasn’t too thick. It mattifies nicely!

Nicole by OPI Oil To Go 1aAnd lastly, we have this Oil To Go which is such a convenient way to give constant TLC to your poor battered cuticles. I keep this at my desk at work and apply some product after I wash my hands which is a lot of times throughout the day.  I am always cautious of these types of products because if they are heavily scented, I probably won’t use them. The scent of this product is rather sweet and smells kind of tropical to me, but it’s not overpowering. While I would like a more subtle scent, it doesn’t really bother me.

Have you tried any of these products? Are you a cuticle product fanatic like myself? Considering the amount of abuse I put my hands through, I have to make sure that I keep my hands and cuticles super moisturized. Anyway, I hope you’re having a nice day, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. I will pretty much try any cuticle treatment I get my hands on. Even if my nails are one solid color, I feel like they look really good so long as they’re filed properly and my cuticles are up to par. I love my OPI Avoplex cuticle oil in the squeeze tube w the brush applicator.

    1. I used some of the Avoplex stuff a while back, and it’s pretty comparable to this Oil To Go stuff. I am just like you in that I’ll pretty much try every single cuticle treatment out there.

  2. Why have I never thought about a multi-use product like 3-in-1 for travel? *face palm* Yay…an excuse to buy a product, haha.
    The topcoat looks shiny, but we all know how topcoats are a finicky subject. Thickness, shine, shrinkage, longevity, goopiness, smearing, etc.
    That matte looks nice! Nice and…matte, haha.
    I would totally try out that cuticle oil. I have ones at home, at work, and in my purse…I think this would be a good purse option. I’ve never had a “purse option” one I’ve liked because I fear them opening and ruining everything.
    Yay for fundamentals! Haha.

    1. I have so many different top coats but I always find my way back to Seche. There is just nothing that works as well for me. I don’t really get shrinkage which seems to be the #1 complaint for the product. I think I have gone through 2 professional sized bottles. That’s allota top coat! I have to admit that I love the cuticle oil. It’s so functional and smells nice.
