Nicole by OPI - Nothing Kim-Pares To Blue

I now own 5 polishes from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection. This is not something I am proud of.
I was really let down by 3 of the 4 I bought from the first release, and I wasn't planning on buying any of the new ones for this reason.
...But then I saw this beauty in the supermarket last night and I had to take it home with me.


Nicole by OPI - Nothing Kim-Pares To Blue is a beautiful blue shimmer polish from the new Kim-oriented line of Kardashian Kolors called Wel-Kim To My World.
(How many more god awful Kardashian puns will we have to endure?!)


This polish is so beautiful that I can totally get past the fact that part of the money I spent on it probably went to the Kardashians.


So pretty. I love it so much that when I put it on this morning, I knew I had to post about it today!
This is 3 coats for full coverage and it can be a little streaky if you aren't careful, but it is worth it and it does dry pretty quickly. And the shimmer is just beautiful.

I realized why I love this polish so much, actually.


It's the blue version of my beloved China Glaze - No Way Jose.
The shimmer is the same and the formula is quite similar. This type of finish is definitely one of my top faves!

I was wondering how close this would be to other blue shimmers I have in my collection, and I was surprised to see just how different these four colors ended up looking together.


Left to right:
Nicole by OPI - Nothing Kim-Pares To Blue
Essie - Smooth Sailing
OPI - I Have A Herring Problem
Sinful Colors - Cinderella

As you can see, none of these are even close. It's crazy how dirty Herring Problem looks compared to the others. I think my favorites have to be Kim-Pares and Smooth Sailing but I really love all four of these colors and I am happy to have them all.

Verdict: Buy this polish!

  2. I dislike the Kardashians as well, but I must say I've been looking high and low for this polish. Where did you pick yours up from? Hasn't it Walgreens yet and I'm not sure if it's a CVS, Walmart, or Target exclusive.

    1. i'm in Canada so I don't know if you can get it at Wags or Target or CVS. I found mine at a Dominion supermarket which is a chain in Canada. I believe it should be showing up everywhere soon though! I don't think it's an exclusive, Dominion doesn't get exclusive things. Hahaha. Good luck finding it!

  5. This is so gorgeous!!! I love these types of shimmers, and that comparison was very helpful. You must have read my mind, because as I was looking at your swatches I was like "hmm, i wonder how it compares to..." and then I scroll down and see the nail wheel =)

  8. I love this colour, but loathe the kardashian puns! Tired of them!

    Also I'd like to know about the photo thing too...scared I'll run out of room soon myself!

  9. I use imgur.com to host all of my images! No way am I paying for that when there are so many free sites out there that'll do it for me!

  10. I use flickr, I do pay $25 a year for a membership but it gives me unlimited storage which means I can back my photos up there too.

  11. Ha! I just found your blog and had to comment. I have more of the Kardashian polishes that I care to admit, but I couldn't help myself!

    For those wondering where they can find the new "wel-Kim to my world" line (gag) I found them at Ulta stores (but not offered online).

  12. I laughed so hard at "How many more god awful Kardashian puns will we have to endure" Lol! This color is lovely though!

  13. Nice color!
    And booh at Blogger. Lately they have annoyed me. I don't think you should pay unless you think it would be a real hassle to host them somewhere else. It's annoying because I like the system with the posts within Blogger -.-

  14. So pretty! I was wondering how it would compare too! I actually love the Kardashians/Jenners and own 2 of the first part of the collection (Kollection?) but they don't sell them in England so I have to wait until my friend goes to the US :-(

  15. I would pay the 5$ :) blogger is free and it is an amazing way to blog, so i would encourage them, just tp thank them. It's also less trouble than to host it somewhere else. And hey, it's just 5$ :)

  16. I love that one! That colour is one of my favourites, so I will have to look for that polish! I have a similar one but it's creme, not shimmery...
    Also, heck girl it's only $5 and at the rate you are apparently going, it will be decades before you hit 20GB. May as well go for it!

  17. I just hit that 1 GB limit on my blog after only 5 months (too many pics I guess). If hosting elsewhere is the answer I'll have to start using my photobucket account again. LOL

    I hate to admit it but if it wasn't a yearly charge I'd probably just pay for extra storage. I read that pictures under a certain size don't count against our limit, maybe that's the key? We just need to resize the largest side to 2048px.

    From Google:
    "Picasa Web provides 1 GB for photos and videos. Files under certain sizes don't count towards this limit. This limit applies to photos uploaded to Picasa Web Albums and photos uploaded at original size to Google+ from the Picasa 3.9 software.
    Google+ provides unlimited storage for photos uploaded in Google+, which are automatically resized to 2048 pixels. Videos up to 15 minutes in length are also free."

    Hope this helps. ;)

    1. I just found out that the 2048 x 2048 is for Google+ people, non-Google+ only get 800 x 800. I caved and joined Google+. =(

    2. interesting! my last two posts have been picture-filled with no more mention of my cap so maybe it is the sizing thing. thanks ladies!

  18. I love this blue colour but the puns are too much. I love the fact that it's so shimmery in the light!

  19. I had totally sworn off this whole line so as NOT to support that reality show train wreck in any way! (and I hate their bottle shape, it's just stupid). . . .until I saw this one. It took me like a month, but I completely caved. It's just SO pretty!!!
