Nicole by OPI Modern Family Collection Swatches + Review

I know I've been slacking a little on the updates but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things ^_^ I'm sort of an on and off again watcher when it comes to the show Modern Family. There are so many great shows on at the same time that I don't really get to watch it as much as I'd like to. Nevertheless I thought it was pretty interesting when I learned that Nicole by OPI teamed up with the show to create a collection reminiscent of the characters. The collection consists of 14 polishes that were all created to capture the show’s colorful personalities. Check out swatches of the full collection + my review below.

Am I Making Myself Claire?
Make no mistake...I’m liking this lilac.

I Do De-Claire!
Let me just say how frosty cool this soft rose is!

She’s Lily Something
Pink, sparkly stars...so Daddies’ Little Girl-y!

A Like-Haley Story...
Typical teenagers (and their moms!) will love this not-so-typical fuchsia.

My Jay or the Highway!
This trendy taupe is inflexibly cool. Period.

Stand by Your Manny
Be loyal to this periwinkle blue.

Alex by the Books
Look smart in this seafoam green.

Haley Good Lookin’...
She’s cookin’ up plans for this pink super-glitter.

Basking in Gloria
This red-violet is the color of passion.

Luke of the Draw
Chances are you’ll love this gunmetal glitter.

A Phil’s Paradise
No fooling...this pewter is the real deal.

Candid Cameron
Call this teal just like you see it...gorgeous!

Back in My Gloria Days...
This voluptuous violet has still got it goin’ on!

What’s the Mitch-uation?
This cobalt blue demands an update.

Glow: I definitely like the variety of colors in this collection and I like that there's a perfect mixture of creme's, shimmers and glitters. My two favorites are I Do De-Claire! (a frosty pink) and Candid Cameron (a shimmery emerald green). 

Glare: The formula in a few of the pastel shades and creme's is sort of patchy and takes quite a few coats to get fully opaque. Also, She’s Lily Something (the glitter with the pink sparkly stars) was pretty difficult to apply mainly because the stars had the tendency to clump together at the bottom of the bottle. I had to literally dig them out with the brush just to get a few out to photograph. 

Would I Recommend It? Ehh there are no must-have shades for me and honestly I feel like I've seen a version of most of these polishes in previous collections. There's really nothing significant about it unless you're a super fan of the show and just want to add a few shades to your collection. 

Where To Buy: The Modern Family Collection is currently available at various retailers nationwide. To purchase, find a location near you or to learn more please visit http://nicolebyopi.com.
