Nicole by OPI: Back to Reality... TV (Kardashian Colors)

Good morning all. While yesterday was a beautiful day today it's gloomy and drizzly. Oh well, can't be beautiful all the time! 

Today I want to show you one of the Kardashian Colors which was exclusive to  CVS. This is Back to Reality...TV which really is the perfect name for something the Kardashian's endorse.  This is a periwinkle style purple/blue with pink/red microshimmer.  As I noted before, we're seeing a lot of microshimmer this season and I actually kind of dig it.  The shimmer in this adds interest and uniqueness.  

This one was pretty sheer and I did need three coats for full opacity.  However, this did not go on streaky and I had no balding issues with the first two coats, I just did three to get it more opaque and avoid the dreaded VNL.  

I really need to feature more of my Nicole by OPI collection. I tend to just put them away and not use them. I don't know what my problem is with them because they have a great formula (essentially identical to OPI). I think it's the bottle shape to be honest. Yes, stupid reason not to use a polish, or polish brand, but I think that's it. I HATE the shape of these bottles.  They are hard to hold for photos and stinkin' ugly! I am ridiculous! 

What do you think of this color though? I love it, but you know how I am with my purple polishes!
