Nicole by OPI: Alex by the Books

Good morning everyone! Have you noticed anything different about the blog? I bought my own domain! I don't know what took me so long but I finally did it. So I present to you :-)

Today I have a color from the Modern Family collection to show you. This is Alex by the Books, now I don't watch the show so I seriously have no clue what this name even means.

Alex by the Books is a sea foam  green creme color. It's got a nice shine to it which helps it from appearing chalky. Sometimes colors like this, with a lot of white in the base, can be really chalky in their finish. This one is not. I have tons of colors like this and plan to do a comparison plan ASAP. I love colors like this for the spring. They seem to always be on trend.

I used two coats for the opacity shown in the photos but as you can see, I needed three. It was a nice formula so I honestly think it was my application so take it with a grain of salt. I am sure you can see though, especially on the pinky finger, I had a bit of balding going on. I think this can be a two coater with a more careful application though.

Do you have this one? Do you plan to get it? Do you have something in your collection you think is a complete dupe. Be on the look out for a dupe post and we'll see just how close we can dupe it.
