Nicole by OPI Seize The Summer Collection Swatches and Review

Nicole by OPI Seize The Summer Collection

Summer is undeniably coming to and end (did we even have one?!) although I'm lucky because I still have my Summer holiday coming up! I'm a strong believer that bright nails aren't just for Summer though, and although it's nice to see the warmer shades coming in, there's still room for some brights!

Seize The Summer is Nicole by OPI's Summer 2014 collection (I've said Summer about 17 times in this post, I know!) and you've probably seen them before, but we're a little behind in the UK with OPI releases. I'm generally a fan of Nicole polishes, in fact the only thing I don't like is the bottles...they're hard to hold for my usual hand pose and take up lots of Helmer space! I can forgive that though because the formula rarely disappoints.

Lay it on the Lime is a lemon and lime creme, similar to the bleached neon style from Maybelline. Love love love this colour! The formula is a bit on the thin side but easily buildable. I used 3 coats, no top coat.

LeaPink for Joy is a bright candy pink creme. 2 coats, no top coat

The Coral of the Story is a bright coral red creme. 2 coats, no top coat

Lastly, Shaved Nice is a frosty glitter with tons of silver microglitter and larger pieces of pink, purple, gold and green. I didn't expect to love this as much as I did, the green and purple glitter seemed so out of place; but when I applied it I really liked it! It's just so pretty and has amazing coverage. This is one coat over LeaPink for Joy

If you're reluctant to let go of Summer or you just love a good bright (as I do!) these are gorgeous colours. Shaved Nice is definitely worth a buy if you're a glitter fan!

My Picks: Lay it on the Lime and Shaved Nice
