Nicole by OPI Tink Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Today I have the new Tink Collection from Nicole by OPI to share with you. This Collection is limited edition and exclusive to Wallgreens stores. The Tink Collection is inspired by Tinkerbell! I love me some Disney so I was excited to see this. The collection consists of 5 new creme shades and 1 glitter topper that I really like! Check out all the swatches & reviews after the jump!

Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary is a bright orange creme. The formula was good, it was a little streaky but the opacity was good. I used 3 coats to completely even it out, if you are careful 2 coats would probably be just fine also. Both photos below are in natural sunlight.

Half-Charming/Half-Alarming is a red creme. Nicole by OPI says this is coral but it pretty much just pulled red on me, not sure if it might pull more orangey on those of you who aren't as pale as I am. The formula was really nice on this one, it was almost a crelly in the way it looked squishy but applied opaque. I used 2 coats for the photos below, both photos are in natural sunlight.

How Fairy Nice Of You is a very light pink creme. This is very white toned, I normally don't love these kinds of shades but I like this one...it was very flattering on! The formula was good, it was a little streaky on the first coat but it leveled itself out nicely and was good with 2 coats. I used 2 coats for the photos below, both photos are in natural sunlight.

Pixie Glitter is a silver and holographic glitter top coat. This is my favorite of the collection, mostly because there is moon glitter in here and it wasn't too hard to get onto the nail! The moons in here were pretty abundant and easy to get onto the brush, I did have to place them a bit once I got them onto the nail but compared to how shaped glitter usually is this was very nice. I used 1 coat over How Fairy Nice Of You for the photos below.

Lighting: Sunlight

Lighting: Shade

Sweet On Pete is a chartreuse green. This is not quite as bright in person as it's looking in my photos but it's definitely not a subtle shade either haha. I like greens like this so I like this one but it's not for everyone. The formula was good but a bit streaky, I used 3 coats to completely even it out. Both photos below are in natural sunlight.

Tink's In The Pink is a bright pink creme. The formula was good on this one, it wasn't streaky and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below, both photos are in natural sunlight

The Nicole by OPI Tink Collection is available now, it is exclusive to Walgreens and each polish retails for $7.99.
