Review of Nicole by OPI Nic's Sticks

Nicole by OPI Nic's Sticks: A Bar Experiment


This product has mojo — I mean, it literally became the center of attention on a recent Saturday night outing whilst Mr. Bella and I looked on in amusement. After dinner, my friend, knowing all too well that I'm a nut for products, asked what beauty goodies I had on hand. She wasn't disappointed as I whipped out Nicole by OPI Nic's Sticks in Where's My Chocolate? ($7).

Hmm — fun experiment, I thought. Since it's supposed to be so easy to use, why not have my somewhat tipsy friend give it a try? I mean, if she could easily apply nail polish with this product after a few mojitos, it's got to be good, right? To find out, read more.

A few clicks of the "pen" and she was on her way. Judging from the stares at the table next to us, I assumed they were annoyed by that chemically nail polish aroma. Nope, they were quite curious, actually. Even our server got in on the action. Here is the general consensus, along with some pics:

Pros:
"It's cool. I like it, and it's very easy to apply. Yay! No streaks," said my friend. "You could use this anywhere," said the lady next to us. "I'm impressed, but the color's not for me," chimed another. No fret — They've got everything from trendy lavender (Text Me) to deep black (Home by Midnight) and many in between.

Cons:
We tried, but we couldn't get away with just one coat. Although it dried quickly, it was still rather tacky a little longer than we expected. After two days, it still looks nice, but with a few minor chips.
