Nicole by OPI has released a 4 piece Limited Edition Collection of matte textured polishes. The collection name is Roughles and I really love the name!
Ok I’m going to start this off by saying that texture polishes are a personal preference type polish. I generally LOVE texture polishes but there are some I’m just ‘meh’ about. Unfortunately this set didn’t thrill me. I think it was the lack of sparkle. The shades of the polishes were gorgeous, but still not enough to wow me.
Let’s take a look so you can decide for yourself!
Sand In My Shoe
Sand In My Shoe is a pale golden yellow texture polish with orange speckles mixed in. I used 2 coats for this photo.
On What Grounds?
On What Grounds? was one of the 2 I liked best within this collection. On What Grounds? is a turquoise texture polish with blue and purple speckles within it. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Rock The Look
Rock The Look is a pink texture polish with peachy orange speckles mixed in. I used 2 coats for this photo.
I’m Stucco On You
I’m Stucco On You is probably my favorite of the 4 (well, it IS purple, so it was a given!) I’m Stucco On You is a purple texture polish with blue and pink speckles mixed in. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Like I said, textures are a preference polish and usually I am all about them, but this collection just didn’t wow me. I usually LOVE Nicole by OPI textures – but this is the first matte set of textures they’ve done (I could be mistaken though, my brain is fairly fried from work). Application wise, I had no issues. They spread on like a typical texture and dried in decent time. I do love the color schemes and the added texture glitter (which I like calling speckles for some reason). For a Spring collection – this one is dead on perfect for the season. I may use these for nail art, but probably not for a full mani.
Texture wise, they are rougher than previous textures Nicole by OPI has put out. It won’t scratch you up badly or anything, but it may snag easier on more delicate clothing.
I really wanted to love this collection when I saw the press release, so I am a little sad that they didn’t blow me away.
