Kardashian Kolors OPI Collection NOTD

You may know of Nicole, the little sister brand of OPI, which offers OPI quality for a slightly cheaper price. Well, recently the Kardashian clan have collaborated (wow, try saying that ten times fast!!) with Nicole by OPI to release their own Holiday Collection nail polish shades. There are 14, which includes some glitters. The full collection was released in America in November and I looove them. I mean, OK, I am one of those people that actually really liked the Kardashians so liking their nail polishes wasn't going to be a stretch for me. But even if you're a hater, I defy you to hate on these shades!!

They have recently became available in the UK, in the last month or so. You can buy some shades from ASOS for £9 each, however I saw on Twitter that OPI stockist Lena White had a 15% off discount code available, so I checked out her site and low and behold, the Kardashian Kolors Kollection is stocked there for £9 each, £7.65 with discount, plus I think £3.95 p&p. After a LOT of perusing, I picked up four - Kendall on the Katwalk, Kim-pletely in Love (oh, the irony), It's All About the Glam and Follow Me on Glitter. Yes, they do all have the completely cheesy names.

After a bit of googling, I've found you can buy them from Chemist Direct for only £6.99 with free p&p - bargain!!

Here we go:

(L-R)  Follow Me on Glitter, Kim-pletely in Love, Kendall on the Katwalk and All About the Glam

All About the Glam
This was actually the one out of the collection I wanted the most! It's a gorgeous pearly shade, with iridescent blues and pinks when it catches the light. Sorry about the messy application with this one! The camera wouldn't pick up the gorgeous shimmer in this but trust me, it's there. I can't wait to rock this in summer with a tan! The only problem with this is it's very sheer, this is three coats applies and I still don't think it's completely opaque.

Kim-pletely in Love
This is a gorgeous pale pink, it doesn't look like anything amazing at first, but when it catches the light it has beautiful shimmers of pink and blue. It's so pretty and girlie, I love it! Again, my camera and the lighting struggled to capture the shimmery pinks and blues but you can see it a bit in the bottle. This colour pooled at my cuticles a bit when I applied it, and took three coats to get opaque.

Follow Me On Glitter
Wow wow wow! Now I love glitter polishes, but I have nothing like this! It's a black base with silver micro-glitter pieces, which is pretty cool by itself, but this also has the slightly larger multicoloured glitter in it. These bigger pieces catch the light to show aspects of gold, red, green, blue, orange and pink! So beautiful, I feel like this is a more 'grown up' shade than I normally wear, but the tiny pieces of multicoloured glitter still make it very 'me'!! I used three coats but two would have been fine. The finish is slightly rough, so if you don't like that a top coat may be a necessity.

And a close up (my camera could not focus ha!): 



Kendall on the Katwalk
Holy moly. I honestly think this is THE most beautiful combo of colours! I feel like I'm underwater haha! The base is a turquoisey blue, and there is a mix of tiny glitter and bigger glitter pieces in shades of green and blue to create this masterpiece! I can't fault this one, I love it!! This was the same as Follow Me on Glitter, I used three coats but could have used two and a top coat is probably recommended.

Close ups:


It was really hard to capture the colours to their full potential when I took all these photos as it's so dark and rainy in Scotland, so they're all actually much nicer than my camera makes out! There was about a minute and a half of sun just before I posted this, so I ran out and got some quick photos:
You can see a little better in this the iridescence in Kim-pletely in Love and All About the Glam. Beautiful!

The application of these were easy and very quick drying. The brush is nice and wide, so it goes on quickly and removal was also not too bad, the glitters obviously took a little longer but not by much.
The wide brush

The new Spring Collection is already out in America, but no date of when it'll be out over here. This is a much smaller collection, and features mainly pastel shades. Here's the promo shot:

I'm not yet as excited about these ones, but we'll see!

So what do you think? Yes, I paid a small fortune for these but for £6.99 would you try any? I love them all!! 
Let me know!

  5. Ah! I can't decide which is my favourite! I think when my shopping ban is over I may have to treat myself to a couple. Right now I'm swayed by Follow me on Glitter!
