Nicole by OPI Emerald Empowered

Nicole by OPI has released 15 brand new polishes for 2014, and today I have Emerald Empowered* ($10.99 CDN) to share with you! As soon as I saw this polish in the bottle, I knew that I needed it on my nails ASAP. Emerald Empowered is a beautiful teal blue with a chrome finish.

"Nicole by OPI announces 15 new nail lacquers for 2014, featuring a range of shades from dark blue and cool mint to bright sorbet hues, as well as metallic shimmers and creamy nudes. These highly-pigmented lacquers offer nail fans a unique, varied colour palette ideal for coordinating with the latest fashion trends.

“Maintaining manicures is an important goal to have on the New Year’s resolution list! Perfectly painted nails are one of the best accessories any fashionista can have,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “It’s easy to add this finishing touch to any look with so many stylish shimmers and vivid tones. With a wide array of options, wearers can truly express their personality through these shades, whether they change up hues often or mix and match to create fun nail designs.” - Nicole by OPI

"When I wear this gemstone green, I feel like I can conquer the world!" - Nicole by OPI

Nicole by OPI's Emerald Empowered has a thin formula, but with two coats it is fully opaque. This teal blue polish is mostly blue, but also has hints of green and a chrome finish. This polish dries to an incredibly shiny finish, and I didn't have any issues with brush stroke marks despite the chrome finish. I think that Emerald Empowered will be perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months, as I absolutely love wearing brighter shades in the warmer weather. Although Nicole by OPI's Emerald Empowered is fairly bright, I still think that it is easy to wear, either as a manicure or pedicure shade. 

Do you enjoy wearing brighter polishes like Emerald Empowered? Will you be checking out any of Nicole by OPI's new polishes for 2014?

"Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality. The 15 new nail lacquers will be available in stores beginning January 2014 for $10.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart Canada, Jean Coutu, Loblaw, and London Drug."
