Nicole by OPI Something About Color Collection

Nicole by OPI has some fab new shades just in time for fall.  The four new hues are superb and very unique.  The colors are perfect for the summer to fall transition.  Per usual, the names of the polishes are what really get me excited!!! Here's the rundown:

Green up your Act-- This shade is an olive green with a hint of blue to it.  It's kind of murky-looking, but for some reason, I'm utterly addicted to it. It seems to be taking over as this seasons "greige" (gray-beige) neutral.  The color looks scary at first, but it's actually quite flattering on most skintones.  This is a color that will be all over the place this fall and starting with your nails is a great way to get a jump start on the color trend. The finish is smooth and gorgeous, with an almost creamy quality to it.

Sounds Grape to me--  Definitely more of a "raisin" color, than anything resembling other grape-colored polishes I own.  That said, I really like the color.  I might hold off until fall to bust this one out, but wine is always a good color to wear.  While it's still warm out, rock the color on your toes.  As it gets a bit cooler, pack up your pretty pastel polishes and use this as a basic go-to polish for your fingers.

It's Not Me, It's Blue--  The prettiest periwinkle polish I've ever laid eyes on!  This color is by far my fave of the collection.  The color is difficult to explain.  It definitely has a periwinkle base, but it also has more gray than you would expect. Normally, I'd consider periwinkle more of a spring color, but the gray adds depth and a darker quality that is perfect for the upcoming colder months.

I Love You Cherry Much--  This hue is a bright, sparkly red that I think is actually quite seasonless.  You can wear this polish all-year-round for a glitzy, glam look.  The red has some cooler undertones to it, hence the "cherry" desciprion in the title.  I'd say that's pretty accurate.  And being such a huge fan of red polishes, I can already tell that this will be one of my new fave reds of all time!

The collection is absolutely to die for!  Each polish retails for under $8 and is available in August 2011only at select Target locations and at
