Nicole by OPI Southern Charm

Today I have another polish to share with you from Nicole by OPI's Carrie Underwood Collection! Southern Charm* is a beautiful nude polish that actually has great opacity. I don't wear nude polishes all that often, but I do like to wear them every once in a while for a change of pace. Also, I filed my nails into a more square shape last night, and I'm kind of loving it!


I used two coats of Nicole by OPI's Southern Charm to achieve an opaque look. Southern Charm is, in my opinion, the perfect nude for my skin tone. I love the pinky undertones, and the shade is close to my skin tone without being an exact match. The formula is very creamy, and although the first coat is quite sheer, the second coat deepens the colour. I didn't have any issues with streaking, bald spots, etc. with this polish, which is a major struggle for a lot of nude polishes! 


I don't know why, but I tend to start gravitating towards nude polishes every Spring season. Now, we aren't quite at Spring yet, but I sure am ready for Winter to be over! I'm even thinking that this polish would work nicely as a pedicure with a bright pair of peep-toe heels or flip flops :)


Are you a fan of nude polishes? I highly recommend checking out this creamy polish from Nicole by OPI - I'm in love! I also think that Southern Charm would be a great nude to pair with a glitter top coat, I'll need to start experimenting. What polish are you currently rocking?

  6. I love nude polishes! This one is very similar to Rimmel's Cupcake, maybe a tad lighter! :) x

  9. This nude does look great on you!
    I find wearing a nude once in a while kind of cleanses the palate form all the colours. It's a nice change and makes you appreciate colours even more afterwards.
