Nicole by OPI Turquoise Texture


 Nicole by OPI has released six new crackle top coats, called Nicole by OPI Texture Coat. It is described by the company as “a line of graffiti-style nail art products inspired by OPI’s bestselling Shatter.”

Texture Coat is available in six shades – Gold, Silver, Red, White, Turquoise and Black. You can see them all in the above photo.

I decided that I wanted to do individual posts on these Texture Coats, because I don’t like swatching crackle polishes. So today I’m starting off with a post about Turquoise Texture! I paired it with Nicole by OPI Pink Seriously:

I wanted something totally Smurfy, since Saturday, June 25th, is Global Smurfs Day 🙂 I figured this was Smurfy, with a little bit of Smurfette thrown in 🙂

 Turquoise Texture is pretty much a dupe for OPI Turquoise Shatter. Here’s a bottle pic comparison:

Turquoise is one of my favorite colors of crackle. However, I do wish more of the base color could come through on this one. This Texture Coat is caught between a true crackle (a la Kleancolor) and a Shatter.

But because blue is one of my favorite colors, I love it. It’s pretty, and it’s SMURFY!

I had no problems with application. I painted two coats of Pink Seriously, added Poshe Top Coat, then added the Turquoise Texture when it was dry. I applied another layer of Poshe over the finished mani.

Nicole by OPI contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. Texture Coat will be available July 2011 for $7.99 each at ULTA, Target, Meijer, Harmon, Wegmans, Sears, and H-E-B. Texture Coat will be available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart and Loblaw.
