NOTD: Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl Collection "Scandals, Secrets, and Sparkles"


Looking for something silvery and sparkly for your tip your holiday nails in?  Well, this isn't from a Christmas or Holiday collection, but Nicole by OPI's "Scandals, Secrets and Sparkles" from the Gossip Girl collection seems to fit the bill!  Too many times silver polishes come off as looking like foil, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes you just want a pretty frost with some sparkle, and SS&S does the trick! 


The polish itself is a light and mildly pigmented silver frost with uniform silver glitter throughout.  One coat could be used on top of a polish to add some silver and sparkle, but when applied with several coats there is a nice finish.  I used two coats, and although in person this looked fine, I can see that the flash of my camera helped point out the stained nails I have above.  Oh well!  I still like the color!  Maybe a nude or white polish underneath to help mask the stained nails?


Here is a closeup of the polish - see all the sparkly goodness?

What is your favorite holiday polish?  I have so many, it's hard to decide, but I definitely love the silvers and sparkles!
