Nicole by OPI Texture coats - review and swatches of last six shades

Hi everybody!

Today I'll show you the rest of the Texture coats that Nicole by OPI offers...

Turquoise Texture - vibrant turquoise Texture coat. Awesome bright shade that stands out the best over white and black. It looks like metallic finish...crackled :) It is highly pigmented so I had no problem with getting a good colour without using thick layer. OPI, big sister brand did almost the same polish, only called Turquoise Shatter.

Black Texture - black creme Texture coat. Classic creme crackling polish that is pigmented well and dries fast. In fact I always have to work fast with creme crackling polishes and use just one brush stroke at one place, because they dry very fast.

Gold Texture - metallic gold Texture coat. This is a very lovely shade of gold I felt comfortable in. It is little bit less pigmented that the Turquoise or black Texture coat so I applied little thicker layer. That caused the big cracks. Otherwise it applied nicely and dried reasonably fast.

Silver Texture - metallic silver Texture coat. If we had gold, we need also silver, right? I've tested the silver over white as well and it looks lovely and delicate. It applied nicely and the silver Texture coat is a tad better pigmented than the gold and I'm wearing quite thin coat.

Red Texture - red creme Texture coat. Another classic shade from the crackle collection. Every brand that has released crackling polishes included red (and white and black) in their range so it is not an unique shade. But I like red, especially combined with white (which you can see below). In this case I've applied the Red Texture coat over Models Own Indian Ocean, pale blue with pink shimmer.

White Texture - white creme Texture coat. The last from the classic shades, it's a very bright white. It dried very fast, almost too fast to my liking so I had to work fast. Three brushstrokes and that was it. I really like this red and white combo, the red polish is Illamasqua Ruthless.

These Texture coats have a nice formula but the creme shades dry very fast. I had to work fast and use just three brush strokes. All of these shades are quite classic in comparison with the shades from other brands but the Turquoise Texture coat stands out to me. Yes it does have a dupe by OPI but it just looks so good and bold! I'd probably wear it when would want to have bright 'statement' nails. I also didn't experience that 'gloopiness' around the bottle neck like for example with China Glaze creme Crackles.

If you're not tired of crackling polishes, you might like these very much.

  1. Love your layering over Indian Ocean. Definitely the best way to wear the red crackle. Gorgeous!
