NOPI Modern Family Collection Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*

Today I have a look at one of the latest Collections From Nicole By OPI: The Modern Family Collection. I love the show and I really got a kick out of the cute names these polishes have.

I did not have any problems or set backs with any of the polishes in this collection. The formulas were all very nice. My standouts in the collection are: Alex by the books, She's Lily something and A like-Haley Story.

I  have an extra set that NOPI provided me with for a giveaway so don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post to for your chance to enter.



Alex by the books is one of those shades you can't help by stare at. It's nothing complicated it's just a simple creme but to me this seafoam green is beyond dreamy! 
Am I making myself Claire is a soft lilac creme. I really enjoy a good creme and I love how delicate this color is. You can't go wrong with a shade like this. 
My Jay or the highway is a great khaki color. At first when I saw this taupe I was very meh about it but once on the nails I actually loved it. It's the perfect neutral! 
I do de-claire is a frosty pink metallic. I'm not a big fan of metallics because they can be a pain to apply but this one wasn't too bad. you can see streaks in the picture but it's just the way the light is hitting it, in person they are not as noticeable. There's not many rosy pink metallics out there that are this nice.
This one has to be seen in person to be really appreciated. It has this gorgeous pink shimmer that runs throughout it and I took pictures of it in every lighting and it was just hard to capture it.  It's such a bright and bold color that's almost borderline neon. I felt like a million bucks wearing this one! 
Stand by your manny is a lovely light blue with a shimmer that is very pronounced.  While I like the shimmer I think I might have like this better if it was just a regular creme. 
Basking in Gloria is stunning. I'm a sucker for a sexy red nail and this does not disappoint! 
Candid Cameron is one heck of a Teal! I have seen similar colors to this one out there so it may not be 100% unique but I never get tired of seeing this type of duo chrome formula. Stunning! 
What's the Mitch-uation to me is like the dark blue version of Candid Cameron. I can't say I'm a fan of Cobalt Blue but it  was very nice on the nail.
This was layered over I do de-claire. Haley Good Lookin' is a mix of pink glitters mostly super fine light pink hexes and then larger pink holo glitters. It's nice on the nail however this just didn't do much for me. 

A Phil's Paradise is an interesting pewter shimmer foil. Very elegant and super shiny! 

Back in my Gloria Days is a violet that's hard to ignore! Very vibrant and shimmering full of yummy purple! Check out the Macro shot to really appreciate all the yumminess it has to offer! 

Luke of the Draw is full of multi sized sliver glitters in a black base. I've seen this combo before but if you don't own it by now and you like the look it's a must have. Formula on this one is great!

She's Lily Something is really something!! Man I can't get over how amazing this polish is! I layered it over several colors before deciding to go with My Jay or the Highway as the base. I wanted something that would really show off this shimmery multi flecked base. I did have to fish out the stars and place them where I wanted them but that wasn't too hard. This combo for me was breathtaking.
