Nicole by OPI Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam

Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a nice week so far.  I wanted to show you my most recent mani really quickly before I head off to school for a terror of an evening at school.  Class until 8 pm followed by a meeting for the journal I'm on.  OY!  I don't own a lot of Nicole by OPI polishes.  I'm not really sure why.  When the Kardashians released their collection I gave the swatches online a quick glance and forgot about them entirely.  Then I saw some swatches recently that got me started with a new obsession.  I love Khloe Had A Little Lam-Lam.  The name is so sweet, and as little as I follow the Kardashians I think Khloe and Lamar are a pretty sweet couple.  The color also fits in nicely with my latest obsession with blue/green colors.  This is a very dark green leaning teal creme.  It is opaque in 2 smooth coats and dries to a glossy finish.  The polish is 4 Free and very pigmented.
2 coats of Khloe with So Wet topcoat, artificial light
I am including pictures with varying lighting so you can get a better feel for the color.  It's definitely one of those polish that almost looks black and makes you take a second look to figure out what the color really is.
Combo artificial and natural lighting
 My only qualm with this is I hate the Nicole by OPI bottles.  They are so awkward in my hand and the grip is a bit slick.
natural light - sorry for the pool in the background! 
I only get shade on my deck this time of year, but it is really lovely outside in the natural lighting.   On a random note - when I was in CVS yesterday I saw a HUGE display for Nicole by OPI being set up.  It had no polish in it yet, but the top featured the Kardashian colors!




  1. its a lot darker than i was expecting but its still a very nice colour

    1. I agree - but in some lighting it really doesn't look that dark! Thanks for looking.
