Nicole by OPI Star of the Party

My first Nicole (ebay). I won't say so much a bargain but very reasonable at 3 polishes for less than a fiver each including P&P.

The bottle is distinctive but NOT IN A GOOD WAY. Like a truncated chess piece or a boot adapted to a foot with dismembered toes! Or a rather unorthodox cricket bat.
Very awkward for the small of paw such as myself to manage. Hmph.

2 coats was plenty.
Why is there not more blog-love for this polish, I'd like to know? Does it have as yet unrevealed malignant properties? It dries fast. It has great coverage. Strong colour. Lots of flash. Blah de blah. I mean to say - look at the damson-y goodness in that bottle. It doesn't smell unpleasant. So why is it not more popular? The ways of men! (And women).

Mine not to reason why however.....

And I got my first bottle of Seche Restore today to thin a couple of my older polishes. Makes me feel almost serious about the subject.

If it could Restore/thin me to my 1987 state then it WOULD be a miracle product. There's no cautionary note on the bottle to advise me not to drink it! I shall have to update my spending-sidebar to reflect today's purchases. Gloom.



  1. Pretty color, I'm actually not a big fan of the Nicole by OPI polish for a few reasons, but the big ones are the bottle shape sucks and I don't care for the brush. Plus I cant find it anywhere locally for cheap and those suckers are $7 US each, totally not worth it.

  2. Thanks, Jen. I got 2 because they were a very competitive price. In the UK we have far less choice and seem to pay for more for bottles containing many fewer ml. Are we bitter? Of course we are.

  3. Lovely color. I think its the price and the bottle shape that throw me off. Nicoles are about $8 here and we never get any of the good colors anyhow. Combine that with a weird bottle and it just doesn't inspire me. =( Let us know if Restore works on the self, lol. I want to go back about 6 years!

  4. eBay <3. You get so many good deals on it :P I do think the bottle is a leetle weird shaped, though.

  5. A very pretty colour! Don't feel bad about buying pretty things, it's good to splurge every now and again...or that's what I'm telling myself anyway :)

  6. What about a daily splurge???? How good is that?

  7. I'm actually a huge fan of Nicole by OPI. Some of my favourite colours are this brand.
