A Quick Look: Nicole by OPI Coca-Cola

Nicole by OPI coca cola

Disclosure: Contains press samples

There’s nothing like a Classic Coca-Cola.  My main vices are fast food and Coke…regular Coke.  There are claims that people cannot tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi in a blind testing, but I can definitely detect it.  I’m usually disappointed if an establishment only carries Pepsi products…but I will settle for Mountain Dew if I’m ever in that predicament.  I will still be pining for a Coke, however.

Last year, OPI released a collaboration with Coca-Cola.  They’ve followed it up this time with their drugstore brand, Nicole by OPI.  It is a similar assortment of glitter, crème and shimmer polishes.

Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - Always A Classic Coca-Cola

Always A Classic Coca-Cola (three coats):  This is the sheerest of the whole collection.  It’s a pretty glowing red, but I find the brushstrokes too distracting.


Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - DC Lover over Dermelect Dune My Thing

DC Lover (one coat over Dermelect Dune My Thing):  While I layered this over a crème polish, it is a buildable silvery glitter topper.


Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - In Grape Demand

In Grape Demand (two coats):  This orchid crème may need an extra coat for perfect opacity.


Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - Seriously Citrus over Dermelect Lazy Daze

Seriously Citrus (one coat over Dermelect Lazy Daze):  The green, blue, and white glitter topper is reminiscent of a Sprite can.


Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - The Look Is Orange

The Look Is Orange (two coats):  If you’re a fan of crème polishes, you’ll need this orange.  It’s even and opaque after two coats.


Nicole by OPI - Coca-Cola - Zero Is My Hero

Zero Is My Hero (two coats):  I found this vampy red in a black base similar to OPI’s Midnight In Moscow.

Nicole by OPI can be found at most drugstores.

    Fits in perfectly with the Mad Men craze from the last episode! I adore Zero is My Hero and I should buy it!


  2. Color Me So Crazy

    I love the cremes in this collection. They are so beautiful and vibrant. I’m usually not impressed by NOPI cremes, but these are gorgeous!

    I like the red best but the brushstrokes are distracting.

    I agree, there is NOTHING like an original Coke! I actually prefer this collection over OPI’s Coca-Cola one.
