Wel-Kim to My World: Nicole by OPI’s second Kardashian-Inspired Collection

Standard

We all remember Nicole by OPI’s “Kardashian Kolor” Collection from last year, but now,  Nicole by OPI has debuted their second Kardashian-themed collection. Titled Wel-Kim to My World, this collection focuses soley on the super-popular Kim Kardashian, as opposed to the entire Kardashian clan.

As I have mentioned before, pastel colours are a huge trend for the spring. Keeping this in mind, the Wel-Kim to My World Collection features six pastel-coloured nail polishes.

Essie “Turquoise and Caicos” Review and Swatches!

Standard

To view a review of the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free, click here.

Essie’s “Turquoise and Caicos” was first released in their Resort 2010 collection and has been added to their permanent line in response to its popularity. This colour is famous for being known as the “perfect Tiffany blue” colour. Although I believe it is more on the green side, it is still a beautiful polish for spring and summer.

Pigmentation:
Essie nail polishes generally require two coats to become 100% opaque and this one was no exception. However, if only one coat is applied, the polish may look very uneven and streaky.

Texture:
I loved the texture of this Essie polish. The formula was the perfect consistency in the way that it wasn’t too runny or thick. It allowed you to paint a thin, precise, and even coat without bumps.

Packaging and Brush:
The brush in Essie polishes are not the best. There is nothing special about the shape of the brush and the lid is too small to have a good grip on the handle. But for those of you who have smaller nails, this brush may be just what you need to get into the tight corners.

Will I be repurchasing this product? Yes.
Do I recommend this? Yes.
Main Pro: The colour is very unique and perfect for the warmer months.
Main Con: Brush is small and mediocre.
