OPI Girl Color and Nicole By OPI Kim-Pletely In Love

Hello! Yayy for the weekend!!! Today I have a post containing two polishes: OPI Girl Color and Nicole By OPI Kim-Pletely In Love. Surprise, surprise, these two polishes actually are the same! :)

So it appears that some of the OPI and NOPI shades that have been marketed in collaboration with superstars such as the Kardashians, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj etc. have been re-packaged and renamed. I managed to get my paws on quite a few of the renamed OPI’s/NOPI’s for a whopping price of £3.99 each. I purchased them from a small polish/make up stall in Metrocentre (I think it was close to the red mall area?). If you want to read more about the repackaged OPI’s there is a great post at BeautyGeeks with a list of renamed shades and their original titles/collections. There is also a interesting post by Nail Girl you could check.

Below you can see the comparison of the two polishes… yeahh pretty much exactly the same :) Both of the polishes are sheer pink with a blue to lilac multi chrome shimmer (in the bottle the shimmer is much stronger and varies from blue-purple-pink-yellow but unfortunately it doesn’t transfer on the nail). On the swatches I am wearing two coats of polish with no top coat.

After I did the comparison I decided to do a bit of nail art :)

I used Crafter’s Neon and Americana acrylic paints from Hobbycraft (available in store). I’d say these acrylics are a no go for nail art- they are too runny and dry rather slow. I think I’ll just use these for my other craft projects from now on.

I hope you enjoyed my OPI Girl Color and Nicole By OPI Kim-Pletely In Love comparison post. I would love to hear whether you have found any weird named OPI’s recently!?

Thanks for reading xoxox

P.S. Look what happened to my poor pooch this morning- a bee sting right in her face! :( Thankfully after a visit to the vet she got her normal cute face back. We did think she looked quite adorable with the swollen face too!

    Ooh bit cheeky to repackage it and rename it, didn’t realise they actually did that! Great swatches and nail art, and hope your dog is feeling a bit better – she looks adorable!

      Indeed- when I purchased it I had no idea that I already own the same colour! :/ Sam is fine today thank you! :)

  2. […] reader sent me ‘n Lisa some pictures of a NOPI/OPI dupe she discovered. Here’s a nice linky thing to go see her post all the way over in the […]

    I’m actually really excited that these two are dupes. I have a bottle of the NOPI and LOVE it, but have been unable to track down any more. I was thrilled when I found the OPI and realised that it’s a dupe. I now get this gorgeous colour for twice as many wears :)

      Aww that's great! It's a pretty colour :)
