Nicole by OPI Holiday Glitters Swatches!

Good morning, happy Monday! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, mine was fun! I ended up going to see a band called The Sounds last night. I love them, Maja (their singer) is so badass haha! Today I have for you guys the 4 gorgeous glitters Nicole by OPI is putting out of the Holidays! They are stunning! Click the read more button below for a ton of pictures of these beauties!




Glitter In My Stocking is a mix of Gold, Red and Silver glitter. The most dominant glitter is gold, I really love how the red sparkles here. This reminds me a lot of OPI Gift Of Gold, which was one of the Ulta Exclusives from Holiday 2010...I need to bust that polish out and do a comparison! The formula was good, the glitter was pretty dense so it was really easy to get opaque. I used 2 coats for the photos below, if you tend to do thinner coats you might need 3. This dried a bit dull, I used a top coat for the photos!

My Sleigh's In The Shop is Magenta and Silver glitter. The magenta is so overpowering in this that you almost can't tell there is silver in there also out in the sun. I really love this one, it's festive but it doesn't feel like a run of the mill holiday polish. The formula again was good, easy coverage in 2 coats. This one also dried a little dull.

Orna-ment For Each Other is Red and Gold glitter! I really love the red glitter in this one, in the shade it took on an orangey red tone...very pretty! Out of all 4 glitters Nicole by OPI is putting out this one is my personal favorite. It makes me want to go buy some Poinsettias haha! Formula again, was wonderful. I used 2 coats for the photos below. This one also dried a little dull.

Snow-Man Of My Dreams is packed with a ton of different colors of glitter...blue, silver, gold/yellow, orange, pink and green. There are probably other colors thrown in there also but those are the ones that stand out! The blue glitter in this is very dominant, but you can really see all those colors peeking out in the shade and in low light. I think this one is the most interesting of the 4, I really love the mix of glitter. The formula on Snow-Man was not as great as the other three polishes. It was a bit more sheer, it did look okay at 2 coats but I used 3 for full opacity.





I <3 Macro! 


Overall this collection is a major win, all 4 glitters are stunning. My favorite is Orna-ment For Each Other but really, if you like glitter (like I do) you *need* all 4 lol.


These limited edition Holiday Glitters will be available November 2011 for $7.99 each in the U.S. at HEB, Sears, Stage Stores, select Target locations, Target.com, and ULTA. In Canada, lacquers will be retailed for $10.99 each in Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaw and Zellers.


If you have a Target near you these might already be out. I saw them on an end cap at my local Target last week!

  1. Wow, these are GORGEOUS. My favorites are definitely Glitter In My Stocking and Orna-ment For Each Other (I usually don't even go for reds, but I LOVE the gold peeking out in that one).

  11. lol! I saw them at Target last week and said the exact same thing to myself

    ReplyDelete
  12. It actually wasn't too horrible. Not as bad a big chunky glitter! Tin foil is my best friend!

    ReplyDelete
  13. thank you ♥

    ReplyDelete
  14. me too! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  17. wow..great colors..very beautiful glitters!!!wow wow wow!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thx for sharing....will you be doing a post with just one coat?  I'm wondering if the glitter is really thick or if one coat would be a nice glitter topcoat?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I wasn't planning on showing them like that, sorry. They are pretty dense, I think the only one that might work for layering is Snow-Man of my Dreams if you did a really thin coat.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love your reaction ♥

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hope you can find them soon! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Snow man of my dreams looks like an exact dupe for OPI Simmer and Shimmer from the Burlesque collection. Great post as always.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'll have to pull that one and do a comparison!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I adore both Orna-ment For Each Other & Glitter in My Stocking. Curious how much better coverage (other than the blue one) these seem to have than the glitters from OPI in the Muppets Collection??? Assuming from your saying these were a 2 coat for your photos that these DO have far better coverage than the Muppet ones that really are thin but for the pink and the blue ones. BTW - the blue one from Muppets I found is almost exactly the same color (sans a little of the silver out of it) as the Revlon Mosaic blue I think the name is from the recent Revlon 3 glitter collection (and one nude base).  Super shots!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm really not sure about the coverage of the Muppet's glitter since I don't have those yet. Good to know about the blue glitter!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The last 2 are my favorites!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hate that these are not for sale here in the Netherlands.. I would love to own those.

    ReplyDelete
  28. ohhhh pretties! *adds to wishlist*

    ReplyDelete
  29. Definitely going to get My Sleigh's in the Shop!
    How were they when it came to removal? X

    ReplyDelete
  30. It wasn't too horrible. I used the foil method, I think that helped a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mmmmmmm you already know I LOVE the last one. Stunning swatches and great pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  32. thank you :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. Awesome swatches! I saw these at Target yesterday but the only one I was really interested in was Snow-Man Of My Dreams. But the only thing I'm wondering is how it compares to OPI Simmer and Shimmer, which I already own. I just want to make sure before I buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Clearly I need all the glitters. These are my kind of Holiday Collections!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's on my list to compare...just need to find more hours in the day to actually do it :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. They are all so pretty

    ReplyDelete
  37. That is some pretty fantastic looking glitter!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great swatches as always! I love the gold one and the blue one. So pretty:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think the one I want most is Snowman of my dreams. *sigh* :) I like how it changes sliver or blue.  Awesome swatches

    ReplyDelete
  40. OMG Snow-Man of my Dreams!!!  *swoons*  LOVE these!  Definitely going to nab these the moment I see them!  <3  Beautiful swatches!  <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just sent the list to my hubby for when he goes to Target this week ;) PRETTY GLITTERS....they suck me in every time!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. They are amazing! I was also wondering if you were going to do a full review of the Muppets collection?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I definitely will be as soon as I get them!

    ReplyDelete
  44. After reading your post, I went to Target to get dinner makings. They had this collection and I promptly picked up the gold glitter! I mean wowza! Also, they had these interesting 2 packs for $10, but not in these shades.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I saw those two packs also! I didn't buy either of them but I might go back for them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. i bought the blue one today at target! it was in the normal display but none of the other holiday ones were there.

    ReplyDelete
  47. weird that the blue was in the main display. At my Target the holiday glitters were at the bottom of an end cap. The end cap was all holiday nail stuff. It had the Sally Hansen Salon Effects, Essie's Cocktail Bling Collection, Sally Hansen Insta Dri's and some other Nicole by OPI polishes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm loving all 4 of those! Too bad I don't have any of those stores nearby!
    Have you heard All Time Low's song "Guts" feat. Maja? It's really good! I'm so jealous of your concert goings-I live in a small town and have to take trips to go to shows!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I haven't heard that song! I'll have to check it out! The one good thing about where I life is that the music scene is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I really want Orna-Ment For Each Other. I found this display at my Target today but I can't bring myself to pay $7 for a bottle of polish, especially since I've already spent a ton of money on nail polish and makeup this month. ;_;
