Nicole by OPI Coca Cola Nail Polish Collection: Review and Swatches
New for Summer 2015, Nicole by OPI has teamed up with Coca Cola for a six-piece polish collection. Filled with fresh and bubbly colors, the collection is inspired by different soda drinks from Coca Cola. To see swatches and reviews of the colors, click......
The Look is Orange 
"Put the squeeze on this bright and stylish orange!"
A simple bright orange creme, this color screams summer! The formulation is a bit sheer and uneven so I had to use three coats, but nevertheless the polish has a shiny finish.

In Grape Demand 
"People are lining up to get their hands on this yummy plum."
This is a beautiful eggplant purple with a nicely pigmented formulation. I used two coats for the swatches below.

DC Lover 
"Scintillating silver with iconic-Coke red sparkle."
This is a fun full coverage pinkish silver metallic filled with tiny red glitters. The formulation is very packed so only two coats are needed for opacity. The finish of this one is a bit more rough so a top coat would be helpful.

Always a Classic Coca-Cola
"This classically gorgeous bright red is refreshingly stylish."
A dashing bold red frost, this color is incredibly pigmented. The polish is almost a one coater but I used two, just in case.

Seriously Citrus
"No kidding...this clean, sparkling green with refreshing, cool white is gorgeous!"
This is a fun glitter topper filled with shiny green, blue hex glitters, matte green, white, and mini matte dark blue, light blue and white glitters. The formulation is filled with glitters so there is no glitter-fishing needed, I used two coats over The Look Is Orange.

Zero is My Hero
"Just in time, this darkly rich burgundy has come to my rescue!"
Out of all the shades, this one is most true to the drink it represents. A sparkly brown shimmer filled with golden pink duochrome particles, the formulation of Zero is My Hero is nice and pigmented. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Overall:
This is a solid collection filled with some wonderfully pigmented two coaters. My favorite is definitely Seriously Citrus and DC Lover, both of which are really unique glitters.
