Selena Gomez's Nicole by OPI - Heavenly Angel

Hey there, LacquerHeads! 

I recently picked up a bottle of the new Selena Gomez Nicole by OPI - Heavenly Angel. It's a gorgeous opalescent flakie in a clear base. 


Here it is over black, grey, and white:



I think it looks best over black, but white is pretty interesting looking too.

I chose to put it on top of Don't Mess With OPI for a fun St. Patricks Day mani.




I really can't tell if I like it or not. I keep catching myself staring at it, because it really is eye catching. The multi colored glints of light reflecting from each little flakie is stunning, but I can't tell if it's cool looking overall or just tacky. I received two comments while wearing this mani. One person said it was weird, and another person told me they thought it was amazing.

As for the formula - I'm not so sure about this either. If you choose to put two coats on - the second coat will pull all the flakies up, and clump on top of the first coat of flakies. This makes some parts of your nail still totally void of flakes and other parts over packed. I did find a solution though, instead of applying in strokes, dab it onto your nails. This gives you better control of where the flakes will go, and eliminates the flakes pulling towards the tip and piling onto other layers. 

Since I can't decide if I'm completely in love with this or not, will you guys help me decide? I'd love to hear about your experiences using this polish and I'd love to see pictures of the outcome! So please share with me.

Until next time,
prettylittlebigle out.

  1. I've never used this specific nail polish, but I've used similar stuff. I don't generally use it because it's so difficult to take off. When I do use it though, it's normally as an added touch to some nail art.

  2. That's what I think this polish is going to end up being in my collection, the accent nail. I might try using it as part of the background in a galaxy mani though. I think that has the potential to look really cool.
