Today I have:
Nicole by OPI - Opal Texture.
This is my fist NOPI polish =) I stumbled upon this polish in a display at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Shoppers seems to be stepping it up lately! I did a google search of this polish as well as the 3 other colours that came in the collection and found that they aren't even supposed to be out until April!
The other 3 texture (crackle/shatter) colours are Quartz, Amethyst and Aquamarine (and the last 2 are GLITTERS)! I will definitely be on the lookout for the glitters elsewhere as NOPIs are $11 at shoppers + 12% tax! =(
NOW, on to the swatches!
This is 1 coat of NOPI - Opal Texture over 1 dry coat of Wet n Wild - Black Cream.
No top coat.

The part of the swatchsicles don't have black polish on them and as you can see, NOPI - Opal Texture is very sheer until put over a dark colour! It is also a duochrome! I think this is the FIRST duochrome, sheer, shimmer texture/crackle/shatter (or whatever you want to call it) polish I've EVER seen!
It's really pretty and I think the layering possibilities with it are endless! I've never been drawn to NOPIs before, but this one just spoke to me! It was on the bottom shelf of a display facing backwards and it managed to catch my eye! It has a beautiful pink shimmer and adds a touch of sparkle to any polish. It also shattered very well! I will definitely add the teal + purple glitter NOPI textures to my wishlist now!
Be sure to check back tomorrow to see this polish swatched over a few different colours!!!
