Nicole by OPI Khloe Had a Little Lam Lam Swatches and Stamping With Konad M65 and

  In a few of the nail polish groups that I am in on Facebook, I heard that Target was having a polish sale.  My husbands allergies were killing him the other day and he had ran out of Allegra, so I generously offered to run to the store and pick some more up for him.  ;-)  I always wanted to try the Nicole by OPI polishes because OPI is one of my favorite brands, but I felt that seven dollars a bottle was kind of a rip off for a "drug store" brand of polish.  I know it isn't a drug store brand but they designed it to be sold in stores like WalMart, Target, CVS, Fred Meyers, etc etc.  I picked up three of the Kardashian Kolor's, (can I say how much it bugs me when companies spell things wrong on purpose, Kolor, I mean really?  Normally I won't even use a product or company that does this.  I know, I have issues.)
  I didn't think that I really like Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam but I fell in LOVE!  It is such a beautiful dark green cream color. The application was perfect!  I could have done it with one layer of polish had I done it a tad thicker, but I went pretty thin with my layers.  I loved it so much that I wore it for two days.  It is so stinking pretty.  I will let the pictures speak for it self.

My original idea was to put a matte top coat on over Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam and then stamp with the same color but it didn't show up like I wanted it to so that is when I switched to the Jade polish.  I wish that it would of worked out but it didn't. :-(

Have you guys tried any of the Nicole by OPI polishes.  Do you think they are over priced or just right?
