Nicole by OPI - Opal Texture

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.
This is what it looks
like most of the time

This is what it looks
like when tilted in the light


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!!!


  1. I'd pretty much gone off crackle. I couldn't even get myself excited over MUA's glitter crackle. This may have just renewed my love though.

  2. I figured I had enough crackle and didn't need any more but a duo chrome crackle I must have!! I'm really excited about this now! Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I saw the $OPI versions of these awhile ago. But I'm glad you got you're first NOPI!

    1. *your is what I meant. Damn auto correct.

    2. lol. I don't have any of the Sephora ones yet either! Maybe I should add one to my collection ;)

    3. ooh now I remember I want the Betsey ones! I hope they still have that mini set...
