Product Review and NOTD: Nicole By OPI Modern Family Collection in Candid Cameron

A little while ago I told you about Nicole by OPI launching a Modern Family Collection. I absolutely love watching that show, it never stops to surprise me, and it is the one comedy show that I have not yet gotten tired off.

The Nicole by OPI Modern Family collection features shades that capture the show's colourful personalities from a classic taupe named after patriarch Jay, to a sparkly pink hue fit for little Lilly! I was lucky to get to trial the shade called *Candid Cameron, and here are my thoughts;

What They Say:

Nicole by OPI contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde and has a custom designed 'Perfect Stroke' brush for the most precise application.

RRP: $14.95 – Available from selected pharmacies, Hairhouse Warehouse, Petra Haircare and from Nicole by OPI Online.

What I Say:

It is not a secret that I love the OPI nail polishes, as you can always rely on the best quality and a fabulous colour range.

Nicole by OPI's Candid Cameron is a has a nice dark teal/turquoise colour with shimmer throughout, and once applied it is exactly how it appears in the bottle.

The nail polish has a nice formula, which is so easy to apply – and thanks so the wide brush, just a few quick brush strokes and the nail is covered. The nail polish covers nice and evenly, without any visible brush strokes. It has such a strong colour that covers so well, that I am in fact only wearing one coat in these pictures – How good is that!! The special brush really does make it so easy to apply that even I, who is very clumsy when it comes to applying nail polish could make it look half-decent!

And it dries so quickly too, which I really like, and I love the fact that it doesn’t have a strong smell either – no doubt due to being free from DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde.

Having two dogs I wash my hands quite regularly, and no denying that the computer keyboard does a little damage too – however , the nail polish lasts quite well, especially with an added top coat where it lasted for about 5 days before it started to chip at the edges.

All in all, the Nicole by OPI nail polishes really are of such fantastic quality, and absolutely worth their price tag. And I absolutely love this colour, it is very stunning, and so different to any other nail polishes I have.

What do you think of Candid Cameron? Have you ever tried any of the Nicole by OPI nail polishes? What’s your favourite nail polish? And colour


  1. I consider myself a bit of a nail polish buff and have a huge collection featuring the majority of the well-known professional brands, but must admit, while I have always heard of Nicole by OPI I have never tried them. Will have to pick up a colour one of these days and check it out, great review btw :-)

    1. I love the Nicole by Opi polishes, as they are a great quality, and continuously bring out new fantastic colours and collections. And in the case of the Candid Cameron, I just love that one coat is sufficient.
