The above information and picture was taken from the Nicole by OPI website at http://www.nicolebyopi.com/collection/one-less-lonely-girl-collection
This collection, a collaboration with Justin Bieber, was released by Nicole by OPI in January '2011 at drugstores and Wal-Marts. Apparently Bieber wanted to raise awareness and funds for a nonprofit organization called Pencils of Promise (PoP) that helps build schools and increase educational opportunities in the developing world. Weird for a guy to be involved in a nail polish collection! But it is for a good cause! :)
I mainly tried this out because I was looking for a nice creamy light blue polish. I specifically went for 'Barracuda' by Sally Hansen or 'Borrowed and Blue' by Essie but these were both all sold out :( This "Baby" Blue from Nicole by OPI caught my eye, so I thought I would give it a try.
It is a little darker than I would have wanted a "Baby" Blue nail polish to be, however, it is pretty true to the color in the bottle so I knew what I was getting into when I bought it. It is a nice Smurf blue color. I actually really like it. The only complaint I have is that it went on streaky, even after a couple of coats? I think it might be because of the brush, which seems to be too short and therefore too firm to achieve the perfect coverage.
On my ring finger over top of the "Baby" Blue is OPI Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night' and OPI Femme de Cirque's 'I Juggle...Men' as the top coat because I find 'Last Friday Night' to be a bit chunky, leaving a rough finish to the nail without a topcoat.
I am interested in checking out a couple of the other colors and the silver glitter (despite my hatred for removing glitter after, it looks really pretty when it's on). If I do I will update this blog post with new swatches.
I am trying to push out posts for all of the pictures that I already have so there will more very soon...
