We're rolling right into 2014 with an awesome new collection from Nicole By OPI! This Carrie Underwood inspired set of 14 nail lacquers has something for everyone, including great shades to transition us from Winter into Spring!
Love My Pups- a super pale, creamy pink (3 layers shown here):
Southern Charm- OMG. This nude taupe cream turned out to be one of my favorites! It compliments my skin tone so well. I was surprised, because in the bottle it leans on the brown side, but on the nail, it's just perfect nude-ness! (3 layers):
Sweet Daisy- a warm toned peachy-pink cream that is completely lovely. My Grandad used to call me 'Daisy', so I love the name! (3 layers of polish shown):
Carnival Cotton Candy- a super bright, cool toned pink creme! Exactly like sweet cotton candy (3 layers):
Color Me Country- a bright, warm hot pink cream that is another one of my favorites. I fall for this type of color all the time. I'm sure it's not completely original or groundbreaking, but it's just so pretty! (3 layers)
Some Hearts- rounding out the "pink" half of this collection, we have this pink-red, almost jelly shade that is super shiny. (3 layers):
American As Apple Pie- a perfect red with hidden shimmer flecks! (3 layers):
Backstage Pass- dark and vampy burgundy shimmer. I'm madly in love with this! (3 layers)
Lips Are Dripping Honey- a golden holographic glitter that flashes a ton of pink! Here's one layer over Backstage Pass:
Goodbye Shoes- a slate/teal cream. So, so, so beautiful. I don't have many of these colors in my collection...I love it so much! (3 layers):
Party Bus- a silver holographic glitter top coat with hexes and flower shaped glitters! 1 layer shown on top of Goodbye Shoes:
Sing You Like A Bee- a white shimmer with a golden flash, this polish is on the sheer side but builds up coverage pretty well (I'm wearing 3 layers here):
Fisher Queen- a dark, royal purple shimmer (3 layers shown):
Last we have Carrie's signature shade, Carrie'd Away, a golden shimmer that is sheer, yet buildable (a lot like Sing You Like A Bee formula-wise). Here's 3 layers:
I did a super quick nail art look using nothing but Carrie'd Away and Fisher Queen. I had Fisher Queen on as the base, and then just using the brush from Carrie'd Away, I dabbed on some spots (kinda leopard-esque, no?). I LOVE purple & gold together...there's just something very regal about it!
There you have it! Starting the year off with a big, polish BANG! Which 'Carrie' polish is your fav??
