Hello lovelies,

I've got here Nicole by OPI Deck The Halls...Kardashian Style collection. I'm a bit late with these so hopefully you'll like my swatches :)

This collection is available now for the holiday season and consists of six shades. Three shimmers and three glitters. These are new additions to the existing Kardashian Kolors line.

A Gold Winter's Night -mix of small rose-coloured glitter and gold and teal bar glitter. The bottle is packed full so you will get a great amount of glitter on the brush. I'm wearing two thicker coats and as you can see, the coverage is very good. It applied very easily and I liked that I didn't have to bother with glitter placement. It didn't dry completely smooth so I have applied topcoat. The drying time was average and removal was hard as it's a glitter.

Kardashing Through The Snow - small and same-sized multi-coloured glitter. It is a mix of red, blue, green and gold glitter in a clear base. This one does not contain as much glitter as the previous polish so when I applied two thicker coats it wasn't perfect. However I did not applied third coat so you can see the coverage you can get with two coats. Not that bad... It is better for layering than for wearing by itself. It dried rather slowly and removal was glitter difficult :) No topcoat

All Is Glam, All It Bright - fine silver, blue and red glitter. I'm pretty sure it's only these three colours but all of them together kinda look like there is a rosy-pink in it as well. The glitter is very dense so it is not good for layering. I'm wearing two coats which were enough for a full coverage. It applied easily despite the thicker formula. It dried slightly gritty so I have applied topcoat.

Deck The Dolls - vibrant blue shimmer. It's a lovely colour that has little silver specs in it and even though it's not very Christmassy it's a nice shade. It applied very easily but the pigmentation is not excellent. I am wearing three thin coats. Polish dried fast but also little streaky. I'm not wearing topcoat.

Here We Kome A-Karoling - dark grape purple with ink blue shimmer. The colour is so gorgeous and deep! It has a great formula - it applied nicely and the pigmentation is good. I've applied two coats that were fully opaque. The drying time was average but topcoat would solve the problem.

Keeping Up With Santa - deep red shimmer. This is my absolute favourite from the whole collection! I love reds and this one is just PERFECT! The colour is so rich and shimmery, almost streak-free. The formula was excellent, it applied very easily. Keeping Up With Santa is almost one-coater but in the end I've applied second coat. It dried fast and glossy so I'm not wearing topcoat. Removal was easy even though I really didn't want to take this one off.

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all well, I'm freakin' freezing here in England :D I know it could be worse but still..

In spring I've received some Nicole By OPI polishes to review and I just didn't get to post them earlier so sorry about that. These two pretty girly shades are from the Wel-Kim to My World collection. First up is Pale by Kim-parison...

Pale by Kim-parison - soft white with pink undertones. This shade is very wearable as it's not a bold white shade. It's kinda bridal shade with some jelly formula quality; really pretty. It applied well but I had to apply three coats to get full opacity. It dried fast and glossy and removal was without problems.

Up & Kim-ing Pink - cotton candy pink creme. This is a girly cool-toned pink that wasn't really complimenting my skin tone so I didn't like it that much. Formula was really good, opaque in two coats. It applied very nicely and the polish levelled itself out nicely. I'm wearing topcoat on this shade as it wasn't as glossy as I'd like it to be. Removal was also easy.
