Manicure Monday: Nicole by OPI Selena


Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share my first Nicole by OPI polish in a classic pink. Some of you may know that Selena Gomez recently teamed up with the line to come out with her own set of polishes and this particular color happens to be her namesake. Like Selena herself, Selena is perky, girly, and undeniably cute!

After wearing quite a few masculine polishes in the last month, I really wanted to try something out that would be super low-maintenance and feminine to bring me out of the last stages of my cold. This pink caught my eye since it was bright but the peach tones and nearly-undetectable microshimmer create a very wearable  Springtime shade.


Here I am wearing OPI Nail Envy as a base coat with 3 coats of Nicole by OPI Selena for full opacity. I also used my favorite top coat Seche Vite to seal everything in place. This combination has been incredibly impressive because I've already worn the polish for over a week and have had next to no chipping with minimal tip wear and only visible nail growth after all this time! The color isn't too harsh on my skintone so it's a great polish for busy girls who don't change their polish often and want a lacquer that "ages gracefully."


As popular as pinks are, I feel like it can be difficult to find a perfect pink that goes well with my skintone without falling back on a go-to magenta or pale ballet pink. Selena for me is a nice middle ground that is bright enough to feel like a change of pace but is still demure enough to be work-appropriate and go with any outfit. In a word: easy!

Readers, what is your go-to pink? What tones of pinks flatter your skintone? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Love the colour, it looks so fresh and nice. But I'm not a fan of having to use three coats to get full coverage, more than two annoys me.

  2. We love pastel pinks and bright pinks in general. Even in autumn/winter (which it is now in australia :( ) we love rockin' bright nails. Great post Jen!

  4. Such a pretty pink Jen! I love how soft this shade is and the slight hint of coral. I think it's that what makes this so beautiful against your skintone ^^

    1. I really don't do anything in particular to my cuticles, but I do try to keep my hands moisturized and I wear gloves while washing dishes which seems to help my hands and nails a TON compared to when I washed them with bare hands!

  15. You always do a nice job for your nails! I just wonder, how can you keep your manicure long lasting at least for 4 days? My manicure only can last 2 days and they peel off very soon. I used the top coat Seche Vite which is you introduce, but it doesn't really help the manicure long lasting.
