My fellow Nail Polish Aficionado’s… say HELLO to Spring/Summer 2013 from Nicole by OPI!

Since the days of cabbage patch dolls and New Kids on the Block to now, I’ve always had a love for nail polish.
Believe it when I tell you… I know my polishes.
See exhibit A below of just a few in my current collection.

Exhibit A

So you can imagine my excitement when I received the press release and samples of the newest Nicole by OPI 2013 Collection which includes collections from Selena Gomez and one of my absolute favourite shows ever, Modern Family.

I love Nicole by OPI because they contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde which is so important to me as a mom to very little ones including a baby.
Their formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and true salon-quality.

Those crazy dishes and hand-washed laundry got nothin’ on my newly manicured Nicole by OPI nails!

I know because I tried!

I used Back in my Gloria Days… from the Modern Family Collection and added a little bit of Selena Gomez’s Confetti Fun on my ring fingers.

Back in my Gloria Days… may just be one of my favourites!
Back in my Gloria Days is a lighter formula so to achieve this look I had to use 2 coats.
Only one coat was used with Confetti Fun.

The New 2013 shades feature two vibrant crème shades of bright pink and rich red and two shimmering hues of deep plum and glossy black.

Plum to Your Senses!
You KNOW this deep, dark plum is the perfect choice.

Please Red-cycle
Do the right thing and wear this apple red over and over.

Totally in the Dark
This shimmery black is completely unexpected.

Still Into Pink
Our love for hot pink will never grow cold.


“Selena is an ideal partner for Nicole by OPI. Millions of fans love her for the
same reasons we do; she’s smart, talented, funny – and has an incredible sense of
style,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic
Director. “She has that classic ‘girl-next-door’ appeal, but she’s also edgy and fun –
just like the Nicole consumer.

Loving all the sparkle and pinks in the Selena Gomez Collection.
But, my favourite (not to be bias because I happen to LOVE the show), just happens to be the Modern Family Collection.


“The Nicole consumer embraces the same spirit of diversity and individuality
that’s apparent on the show,” explains Weiss-Fischmann. “The colors inspired by
Modern Family offer a perfect way to express that spirit!” – Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.

The Modern Family Collection includes:

Make no mistake…I’m liking this lilac.

  1. I love them all! The first I would use would be Stand by Your Manny because it is such a beautiful colour and it would match my favorite shirt!

  2. Ugh, love them ALL…but my favourite is Candid Cameron…I’ve been looking for a really good olive green colour, and that one is gorgeous and shiny. Even if I don’t win, I think I may need to go buy it like, yesterday.
