Today’s NOTD is something that has a bit of everything I like in a favourite polish! It’s dark, shimmery, purple and vampy! Nicole by OPI Smile for the Glam-era is from a “Kolor Kollection” whose name I will not ever mention here and has redeemed itself with both it’s lovely colour and formula.
Smile for the Glam-era is a deep, dark plummy aubergine purple with purple and golden micro glitter that shimmers in the sun. In a dim room, it transforms into a dark purple-burgundy, non shimmery creme look. Reminiscent of the family this collection was named for, it is all sparkles and shines for the flash of the camera, with a darker mysterious secret side behind closed doors. The formula goes on smoothly and covers in 2 coats, however I used 3 for the pictures for extra depth. Dry time was pretty good even at 3 coats. Swatches below have a top coat as well. Here’s way too many pictures in various lighting!
Absolutely an instant favourite! This is even more beautiful in person!
EDIT: This polish reminded me of something and I couldn’t put my finger on what, no pun intended. Today it finally came to me, Nicole Smile for the Glam-era is a possible dupe for OPI Black Cherry Chutney. Perhaps the slightest bit more purple rather than a blackened red. Gorgeous, no wonder I like it so much!
Nicole by OPI Polishes are big 3 free. I found this at my local Dollarama for $3 or less.
Enjoy your day!
