Nicole by OPI - Sea How Far You Go and Best Pink Ever
Yesterday and today I gave away a lot of nail polishes to good homes, to sisters and friends who can show them a bit more love than I did because my nail polish hoarding was getting out of hand. Funny thing is old habit just don't quit and I'm hoarding some new ones just as quickly as I gave away my old ones.
Speaking of nail polishes, I have for you swatches of these duo that I picked up at TJ Maxx not long ago for either $5 or $6. I couldn't resist the deal. When I swatched them I was like ehhh they look like something I already have! lol.
Sea How Far You Go is a shimmery sheer cool-toned gold with a greyish duo-tone to it. It's gorgeous though. I love this kind of gold polish. It's not too bright or flashy but it doesn't go unnoticed either. Formula was very easy to work with but you do need at least 3 coats in order to get a decent coverage and minimal visible nail lines. Even with 3 coats they are slightly noticeable but still look alright I think.
Best Pink Ever is a sheer jelly berry pink with some lovely sparkling pink and blue shimmers. Looks absolutely stunning in the bottle but on the nails, it loses that depth and glow that it has in the bottle. Formula is thin and applies very easily. I think I'll like it more as a layering polish than on its own.
