Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection for Holiday 2012 Swatches & Review

Hello there!
I have a cheerful post for you today full of glittery goodness! This is the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection for Holiday 2012. We have some really nice shades in this collection for the holiday season, so shall we get started?

Deck the Dolls is a pretty bright metallic turquoise shimmer. I really like the color of this, but the formula could be a bit better. It went on rather sheer, but built up in 3 coats. When applying, be sure to wrap the tips of your nails with each coat.

Here We Kome A-Karoling is a deep plum with bright purple and pink glittery shimmer throughout. Absolutely love this one. The shimmer is just so gorgeous, and though I didn’t show you a picture in low light or shade, trust me when I say that the shimmer does not hide on the nail. So pretty! This is 2 coats.

Keeping up with Santa is a bright cherry red metallic. This is your typical holiday red, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing. The formula on this is what really sets it apart from similar colors out there, because it was so pigmented, I barely needed a second coat. Lovely!

All is Glam, All is Bright is a fine, densely packed silver and orange glitter. This is my hands down favorite in this collection. Nicole by OPI did a finish similar to this in a Target exclusive collection last spring called ‘Look at Me, Look at Me’ and I am so thrilled to be seeing this finish again. This does dry a bit gritty, so you will need a top coat to really make it shine, but how pretty is this?! 2 coats.

Kardashing Through the Snow is a really nice mixture of tiny red, green, blue and silver glitter in a clear base. This just screams ‘Christmas’ to me. Shown is 3 coats for decently full coverage, because of its transparent base you’re going to have a hard time completely covering the nail, so try layering it if you’re not a fan of VNL.

A Gold Winter’s Night is a mix of gold, pink and blue glitter of different shapes and sizes in a pinkish gold sheer base. I like this a lot more than I thought I would. Usually I’m not a huge fan of bar glitter, but because it is mixed in with regular glitter, I’m a huge fan. This is 2 coats.

So what do you think about this new Kardashian Kollection by Nicole by OPI? Which is your favorite / least favorite? And which ones are making your holiday wish list? If your budget is tight and you are only going to pick up one from this collection PLEASE have it be All is Glam, All is Bright. You will not be disappointed! 

This limited edition collection will be available in November 2012 for $7.99 each.
