Swatches: Nicole By OPI - Liquid Metals!

If you weren’t already aware of OPI’s little sister, Nicole then you should be as ‘she’ is proving to be a very popular addition to the family. Today I’ll be swatching ‘The Next CEO’ and ‘It Starts With Me’ from the Liquid Metals Collection, a collection that I’m very impressed with so far. They apply nicely (and evenly) with their fairly wide, flat brush and were also quite quick to dry too – always a good thing when you’re impatient, like I am!

The swatches show 2 coats (one thin-ish and one decent coat over the top) with no topcoat. Please excuse my poorly fingers and also the application, I decided not to buff beforehand so I could see how it fared with any little ridges because some metallics *really* emphasise them... I don’t think this has done too badly to be honest, and actually I think the camera highlights this more than you see in reality – what do you think?

‘The Next CEO’ (below) is a gorgeous champagne gold that whilst quite neutral in colour, still makes a statement with its stunning metallic sheen. I really love it.

I thought that ‘It Starts With Me’ (below) looked quite coppery on the stock picture (above), but actually it’s more like a rose gold – this doesn’t cause me a problem as it’s still a very lovely colour.

I believe they’re meant to be available now, but are not currently on the Boots.com website... I’ll try to find out what is happening with them for you, but I can say that they’ll be around the £7.95 mark when they are available.

Other colours available in the collection are:

Miss Independant: A metallic violet.

Rich in Spirit: A metallic blue-green.
