Nicole By OPI Limited Edition Modern Family Holiday Collection Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

Nicole by OPI is releasing 5 new Modern Family inspired shades for the Holiday Season!  These 5 polishes are Limited Edition and will be coming your way this month!

Featuring five shimmering shades, these holiday-inspired hues offer a range of color that can be used to create on-trend, seasonal nail looks.

Aren’t Families Grape

Aren't Families Grape?

I’m starting this post off with my favorite of the collection.  Aren’t Families Grape?  This is a gorgeous purple with red and purple micro shimmer.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Who Red My Journal???

Who Red My Journal

Who Red My Journal??? is a beautiful scarlet creme with micro shimmer.  There were some slight visible brush strokes, but nothing too bad!  I used 2 coats for this photo.

You’re My Treasure

You're My Treasure

You’re My Treasure is a clear base with gold holographic hex and diamond glitter mixed within.  This was a very user friendly glitter top coat.  I used 1 coat of You’re My Treasure over Who Red My Journal???

Late Blu-mer

Late Blu-mer

Late Blu-mer is a medium blue with silver micro shimmer.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Spark The Conversation

Spark The Conversation

Spark The Conversation is a clear base with silver holographic squares mixed in.  The clear base is slightly thick and it made it a little difficult to get a decent amount of squares out.  I did get enough with 2 coats (as shown), but the thicker base did cause the polish to dry slower.  I used 2 coats of Spark the Conversation over Late Blu-mer.

Overall, not a bad collection.  I do think these shades are nice editions to the original Modern Family Collection.  I had no application issues aside from the slightly thick clear base in Spark The Conversation.
