Hi, you guys! Hope your week is going well. We had a few days of sunshine, so I totally soaked up the vitamin D. But now it's back to rain and clouds... gotta love the Pacific Northwest. :P
Today, I have the Nicole by OPI Roughles (pronounced "ruffles") Collection to show you. These speckled pastels caught my attention from the moment I first saw the promo pictures. They look so fun and unique, I was just chomping at the bit to try them out. Without any further delay, here they are. :)

Formula-wise, these are all spot on. They're easy to control and apply evenly on the nails. For all, I used two coats for what you see in the swatches. As with most textures, you may need to be a little more aggressive on the second coat in order to fill in all the dips in between the texture particles. I find that it's best to load up the brush a little more than usual on the second coat and do a medium thickness coat for consistent coverage.
It will probably come as no surprise to anyone that I love this collection. :D I think all four colors are so cute and fresh, really perfect for spring. I was initially a bit unsure about these because I don't generally like texture polishes without any shimmers or glitters, but the colorful specks totally won me over. They're so fun and add an interesting dimension to the pastel shades, making them look like Easter candy or speckled Easter eggs. I think the colors also go really well together and would be fun as a skittles mani, which I'm definitely going to try this upcoming weekend. :)
What do you guys think of this collection? Yay or nay? Which one(s) will you be taking home?
You can find the Roughles shades at retailers such as Kroger, Kmart, Fred Meyer, and CVS for $7.99 for each 0.5 fl oz bottle.
