Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Nail Polish Swatch
I'm surprised I still haven't posted this. Anyways, about a week ago I went to CVS and I had a $5 reward coupon. Normally, the CVS in my area seem to be very slow at stocking new products so can you just imagine the shock when I saw that they had the Selena Gomez nail polish collection on display. I wasn't actually too impressed with the collection so I only picked up these two babes.
Sweet Dreams actually looks a lot sweeter in the bottle than on the nails. It has purple, blue, and silver glitters in a clear base. I have 3 coats on the middle finger, with no base and for the rest I have one coat layered on top of Orly Preamp. I think it picks up a decent amount of glitters on the first pass and is fairly easy to work with. However, I just wasn't feeling it. I think the silver glitters don't belong there cause they are a bit too overpowering and reflective so the other colors just get lost in it.
Heavenly Angel sure appears heavenly but looks can be deceiving. I really like the multi-chrome effect from the flakies though. It shifts from blue to green and orange. They also look stunning on the nails, much brighter and more reflective in person than pictured. They are a bit hard to pick up but are workable. I did two thicker layers to get the effect that you see. My grip about the flakies is that they are a bit stiff and don't lay out flat and smooth. Otherwise, they look really pretty.
