Nicole by OPI: It's Possible

I put on "It's Possible" from Nicole by OPI over the weekend. I wanted something shiny on my nails to counteract the not-so-shiny weather (eugh it was cloudy, cold and raining the whole time). Nicole by OPI is  just a little bit cheaper than OPI ($1 less at Target). The color range is nice, but not as diverse as OPI. I was pleasantly impressed by how thick and creamy this nail polish was--this picture was taken after just 1 coat! Also, the applicator is large enough that cover my nailbeds in 3 strokes (ok 5 for my massive thumb). I have tried two other colors by Nicole, and my overall impression is that its a high quality brand of nail polish, but with a narrower color selection (at least at Target, maybe there's way more out there that I'm not aware of). I will say that the one downside of this nailpolish is that the thick consistency makes application a bit streaky (especially for metallic shades), so apply with care. I try to apply a generous amount for each nail so that I can go over the streaks. Other than that, its a great nail polish--right up there with China Glaze, I'd wager.

What are your thoughts on Nicole by OPI? Are there other brands that you'd say are cheaper than OPI, but have great quality and color range?

Ooh I love this color! OPI is such a great brand because no matter what color you want- they have it! You know who also sells a great brand of nail polish with pretty cool colors(not as many as OPI though) is Forever 21. They just started selling them and they cost about $2.50 but the color goes on perfect. I am wearing their gunmetal gray right now and loving it!

Hey sweetie,
I love the colour :) OPI is the best no doubt!!! Thanks for accepting the tag from my blog, I know I've picked what seems like a dull colour (GREY) but, I do think its a challenging one so just have fun with it... no need to hurry, just do it when you can and I look forward to it :)
