Not too long ago I found this polish in a set of 3 offered by Nicole as a package deal. It included Sea-ing Is Believing, a perky multi-coloured sparkle coat and a top coat which I panned, viciously, in this post. NOPI Sea-ing Is Believing is a tealy blue-green that reminds me of the ocean, and is laced with a fine golden green metallic shimmer throughout. I was worried this super fine shimmer would contribute to visible brush strokes on the nail, but it actually turned out better than anticipated. The shimmer looks better in the bottle, and I find it doesn’t translate to the finished look as much as I would have liked although it is still a pretty shade. I would consider it to be more of a metallic frost rather than a duochrome.

Two coats, which applied perfectly, with NYC top coat in various lighting!

Something else interesting about this shade; it is an exact, not the slightest bit different, bang on dupe for NOPI’s Candid Cameron from the Modern Family line. So similar, in fact, that I assume that they just repackaged it for the 3 set it came in. I can only speculate as to why they did this, but if you missed and wanted Candid Cameron, try looking for this one, as it’s a perfect dupe!

 

Enjoy your week!
