Review Week, Day 1: Nicole by OPI - Roughles Collection

Hey everyone! Apologies for the big gap in-between posting, it's been a busy week this week and I also just wanted to focus on myself a bit as I've been feeling quite stressed recently. I intended to do a week of reviews from Monday-Friday but unfortunately didn't have the chance so I'm going to do my best to do it Wednesday - Sunday instead but if not it might overrun into next week. It's been a while since I posted a review, and when I was sorting through my files on my laptop last week I realised I have a lot of unpublished reviews which I thought I had posted, like these pictures from the Nicole by OPI Summer 2014 Roughles collection! I definitely swore quite loudly when I came across the folder and realised I'd never posted them, so now is the time.

On What Grounds?* is a gorgeous mint shade. This was 2 easy coats. The polish is quite thin but applied well without patchiness. I added two coats of topcoat (Seche Vite), see below, to show how different this polish can look. I actually prefer it with topcoat but some of you may prefer it without

Rock the Look* is a lovely barbie pink colour. This was two slightly thick coats, as the application wasn't quite as easy for this one. I felt like this one looked a bit better matte than 'On What Grounds?' as it doesnt have the slight shine to it that OWG does. Below I've shown it with 1 coat of topcoat as well for comparison.

I'm Stucco on You* is a lovely lilac (couldnt resist a bit of illiteration). This was 2 easy coats. Shown with one coat of topcoat in the picture below

Sand In My Shoe* is a vibrant yellow polish. This was 2 easy coats and it dried fast. Shown below with one coat of topcoat

What do you think? Do you own the collection? Let me know in the comments!
