Nicole by OPI One Less Lonely Glitter

It's mid-January and the Nicole by OPI "The One Less Lonely Girl Collection" has arrived at Wal-Mart and will be showing up at Target, Sears, Ulta and other retail locations next month.

This collection was supposed to have 6 colors but a surprisingly 7th arrived in this collection which I will swatch last. The "7th color" is apart of a separate collection - sorry about that!  Additionally, these bottles were the beginning of the new "Perfect Stroke" brush which slightly resembles the "new" Sally Hansen brushes.

All bottles in this collection had a little cardboard tag that talked about the Pencils of Promise, a charity that works to build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world.  Justin's goal is to build 15 schools around the world for needy children and has been giving proceeds of his earnings to PoP.  No information was provided on how much money from this collection will be donated to PoP.

One Less Lonely Glitter is a lot lighter in the bottle and way less blue than the promo picture.  I think the person doing the product pictures needs their monitor calibrated.

I used a base of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, three layers of One Less Lonely Glitter, and 2 coats of OPI Top Coat to seal it in. However, the glitter was still gritty and I really should have topped it with some Seche Vite to smooth it all out.  I love that the purple glitter in this polish looks a lot like little rhinestones - very Katy Perry nail like (if you've seen her Twitter pictures of polish, you know what I mean).

I didn't have any sun, so here are some mediocre polish pictures (boo).

Removal was an absolute pain which took acetone and soaking for me (I don't FOIL it, even though I should - I just think it wastes foil, haha).  Even still, I absolutely love this polish both in color and glitz.

Nicole by OPI is available beginning at ULTA, Meijer, Harmon, HEB, Sears, Wal-Mart and more for around $8 a bottle.  For more information, visit their websitefollow Nicole by OPI on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.
