Nicole by OPI Seize The Summer Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath


Nicole by OPI is launching 4 new shades for the Summer! Seize the Summer includes bright, beach-ready shades.  These tropical shades add a burst of island-inspired flavor to fingers and toes.

Let’s jump right in!

Nicole by OPI Lay It On The Lime

Lay It On The Lime

First off – this shade was insanely difficult for me to photograph.  Nicole by OPI Lay It On The Lime is a bright yellow leaning lime green.  The true shade is just a touch greener than I could get my camera to pick up.  Insanely gorgeous and bright.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Leapink For Joy

Nicole by OPI LeaPink for Joy is a vibrant, bright pink.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos, and the first 2 coats looked slightly patchy, but the third evened it out nicely.

Nicole by OPI The Coral Of The Story

The Coral Of The Story

Nicole by OPI The Coral Of The Story is a bright, orange toned coral creme.  Perfect pedicure color for Summer!  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Nicole by OPI Shaved Nice

Shaved Nice

Nicole by OPI Shaved Nice is a gorgeous glittery top coat.  I used it on it’s own and honestly love the effect – but it can also be layered over other shades.  Shaved Nice is a mix of small white and silver micro glitters mixed with a small amount of multi colored hex glitters.  I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos, but as I said, you can also use just 1 or 2 coats over other shades to give them a little flair.

I find this to be a small but fun Summer collection.  The shades are really vibrant and bright, but are not neon.  Shaved Nice is my favorite (I love glitters!) but all 4 shades are gorgeous and completely wearable for Summer.

Price: $7.99

Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality.  The 4 new nail lacquers will be available in stores beginning June 2014 for $7.99 each at retailers including select Fred Meyer, CVS, Duane Reade, H-E-B, Ulta, Harmon, Kmart locations.

What a nice set of polishes, I like all colors!

I saw these at HEB today and picked up all four. I fell for that pretty green one first though. I couldn’t really tell what the glitter was going to look like but I grabbed it anyway. I have learned when I see something I like don’t try to go home and think about it and go back later to get it. I’ve come home empty handed and disappointed too many times by doing that. I love your swatches. Especially that glitter. How pretty.

These are ALL so pretty. I really like this line of polishes. And of course anything with glitter!

I love smaller collections – I’m more likely to pick up the whole collection, though! That glitter is calling my name, but it would also look fab over those cremes.
