Nicole by OPI Prized Possession Purple

Almost a month later, and I'm finally going back to my Bieber collection "The One Less Lonely Girl" (Part 1).  

Now once again, when I saw the promo picture for Prized Possession Purple, I was thinking, whoa, that's vibrant.
However, again, the promo picture is just way too blue than real life colors.  Then again, purples tend to photograph more blue - it's only from trial, error, and a photography course that I learned how to make purples look purple on camera.  Oy.

I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 3 coats of PPP and a top of OPI Top Coat.  This "vibrant grape" was more like a "watery jelly" for me, since as you 'll be able to see, the color didn't hold too well.

Check out the bald spots on my middle finger!  I was a bit shocked to be honest - especially since this was after 3 coats.

In the shade, this color doesn't fair much better.  To be honest, I'd probably skip over this color if faced with it because it really needs a base coat of a nude under it to have good opacity for me.  This jelly look just didn't do it for me - which is going to be interesting since OPI's Texas collection has all the "sorbet" colors coming which look like jellies.

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.
