Nicole By OPI 2012 Fall Target Exclusives

Today I've got a look at the Fall Nicole By OPI Target Exclusive Polishes. I admit I struggled putting together this post. The reason being is I swatched all 5 of these polishes and ended up with over 200 pictures and they were all great! I debated if I should let each polish have it's own dedicated post but in the end I weeded more and more pics out and decided to keep them together in one post. So right off the bat these polishes are pretty sweet. 

For gold times sake and Busta a mauve were my two least favorite colors when I got these but after wearing them they quickly rose to my favorites. They have a really interesting build up of many multi color flecks and they're just amazing. They remind me of when you have lots of tiny pictures combined together that from a distance create one big picture... I bet that has a name but I don't know it.  Those two are on the sheer size and they can also make for an interesting effect top coat over other polishes. I used 3-4 coats to get it opaque. If the blue fits is similar to these two however it's more opaque and only took two coats. It also has a lot of the multi-chromatic flecks in it, but are a little more muted compared to the other two polishes

Mer-Maid for each other and Iris my case are really nice duo-chromatic polishes. I'm happy to see that polish companies are creating more of these color shifting polishes. Only problem with them is they can be hard to photograph since it can take several pics to really show off all the color shifts. I'm not going to try to describe the color shifts , I'll let the pics do that. All I can say is they're drool worthy. They are opaque in two coats. Only complaint and it's not really a big one is these two were a bit on the streaky side. But with the results they put off I could care less.  I have heard that these two have similar polishes out there but I don't own any of them to be able to truly compare. 

Sorry for the insane amount of pictures... there was no other way to fully display these beauties than to POST ALL THE PICS!!

  1. OMG, these swatches are gorgeous! I love the close-ups; you really have captured the color shifts and depth of these polishes. Now I need to decide which to purchase! ;) By the way, your nails are gorgeous. Are they your own? I would love to know if you use anything special to help strengthen them. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, I really wanted to make sure that the beauty of the polishes came through in the pictures. Yes my nails are my own natural nails. I don't do anything special other than keep them polished and avoid using them as tools. I know a lot of people take biotin and use special polishes but i don't do any of that. Just was blessed with strong nails : )

  2. I am not a fan of blues but I think I NEED that blue!!!

    1. hah it's a nice blue but out of all of these it was my least favorite, but that's only because the other 4 in my opinion had a lot more going on. I rarely go for blues myself.

  3. Just Busta Mauve and For Gold Times Sake are awesome! I wish we had a Target where I am (I think one is coming this fall, so maybe I'll still be able to find these then!).
