Nicole by OPI | NEW Kardashian Kolor Shades For CVS | Review + Swatches

Nicole by OPI recently announced seven new additions to the Kardashian Kolor collection! But what's extra special about these shades is that they are going to be exclusively sold at CVS! Yay ^_^ In case you missed my last review and swatches of the first shades from their collection, you can check that out here.

The newest shades from the Kardashian Kolor collection are richly-pigmented, fashion-forward hues which include crèmes in bright key lime, pinky peach, poppy red and fuchsia, as well as shimmers in light lilac and deep burgundy. Check out swatches and my full review below!

Paparazzi Don’t Preach
This pretty blush pink is doing just fine.

Strike a Pose
A totally camera red-y color.

Our Fuchsia’s Lookin’ Bright
This purple-y fuchsia has the world at her hands

Ladies in the Limelight
The most talked-about yellow-lime of our time!

One Big Happy Fame-ily
This lavender shimmer is the American dream

Back to Reality…TV
This pretty little periwinkle was made for TV.

Smile for the Glam-era
The paparazzi is all about this photogenic plum.

Glow: Dare I say it? I actually like these shades better than the original collection *gasp* I do, I really do. I love that the colors are the perfect transition from winter to spring, from warm to in-between, to colors that pop! My personal favorites are Paparazzi Don’t Preach which is a toned down light pink that has a nude flare. My second favorite is Back to Reality…TV, it's a gorgeous periwinkle with delightful hints of lavender shimmer. Another personal fave is Smile for the Glam-era, it's a a vampy, shimmery dark plum. 

Glare: I don't know what it is about pastel colors with shimmer when it comes to OPI but the formula seems to be a tad inconsistent than the others. In this case One Big Happy Fame-ily (the lavender shimmer); I had a difficult time getting even coats and it was also hard for it to become completely opaque :o( which kinda sucks because it's a super pretty color. 

Would I Recommend It? I definitely would, and honestly I'd probably recommend these shades before the original collection. I like that these will be sold at CVS, so convenient!

Where To Buy: I'm not sure of the exact date that these will be available but they are set to premiere this month at CVS so keep your eyes open!  They retail for $7.99 each and will be available at CVS locations nationwide and online at http://www.cvs.com.
