Another Kardashian nailpolish. I’m so ashamed. But my local London Drugs have them on sale right now so I set aside my pride and bought this along with another one. Kim-pletely in Love is a baby pink similar to Kim’s favourite Nars lipgloss whose name escapes me right now. Turkish Delight maybe? What I like about this colour is the blue duochrome quality. What you see here is four coats (because it’s so sheer) and two days of wear. What’s your nail colour today?

While a part of me is loath to admit that I bought something Kardashian, I have to admit that this Nicole by OPI nailpolish is one of the prettiest shades of red that I’ve ever bought. Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi is a perfect shade of orange-red that is inspired by her signature lipstick, YSL’s Le Orange. The colour is so bright and cheerful on my nails that I can’t help but feel happy when I see it. (Which was needed this week considering how gloomy the weather was.)
What you see here is two coats without a base or top coat (I’ve been lazy lately) and 4 days worth of wear. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with this polish. This required only two thin coats to get the colour opaque and even. I’m used to three coats and sometimes even four! I also love how well the colour held up. My tips show wear but not nearly as much as I’d expect considering how it looks.
I was curious to see how close the colour resembled YSL’s Le Orange so I took a picture.
Yup, pretty close match.
The colour also reminded me of another orange-red lipstick, MAC’s Lady Danger.
Another pretty close match
Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi was a wonderful match for both lipsticks. Considering Lady Danger is one of my all-time favourite lipsticks, I suddenly understood why I am so into this nailpolish as well as YSL’s Le Orange. And just for fun, here’s a picture of me wearing Lady Danger and Le Orange. Can you tell which is which?
