By now a lot of you have seen many of the shades from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors Collection. They’ve already popped up in some stores last month.
I’ve worn a few colours from the collection, and my favourite hands down is Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk!
When I saw the promo pictures of it, I thought that it would be really similar to China Glaze Skyscraper. Nope – it’s completely unique!
Kendall on the Katwalk is a blue-green-purple glitter polish!
It sparkles like a diva upping the ante. This truly is one that you need to see in person to understand how special it is.
My photos don’t do it any justice. For some reason, my camera mainly picked up just the blue. This is not a flat, run-of-the-mill glitter polish! In person, you can see the purple and green glitter a lot. It’s like wearing a galaxy on your nails!

Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk Review
If you think that you’ve seen every kind of glitter out there, check this one out! It has my two favourite colours (green and purple), plus blue. If that’s not a triple threat, I don’t know what is!
This collection is unique to my 500+ bottle collection, so I was really excited to wear it. From the second I saw the bottle, I knew it was really special. It’s one of those polishes with that Wow Factor, and there are a lot of gorgeous, sparkly blue polishes on the market, so that’s really saying something.
If you only want to buy one polish from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors Collection, Kendall on the Katwalk is my recommendation! It even beats Rainbow in the S-Kylie for me.
The overall look is mainly blue – this really vibrant, glowy kind of blue. But even at first glance, you can quickly see that there’s also bold purple glitter peppered throughout. I love this striking contrast because it really adds visual interest and a dramatic twist on a funky blue glitter polish.
But the Awesome Train doesn’t stop there! You’ll also see stunning green glitter in the mix! While the purple glitter provides contrast, the green complements the blue. I really enjoyed this because it adds depth to the overall result. Without the green glitter, it wouldn’t look nearly as lively.
Finish & Grittiness
This is a glitterbomb! There’s no doubt about it. Slick this on, and your nails sparkle like crrraaazzzyyy! They catch the light, and if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself staring at your nails a little too often throughout the day.
It’s also gritty as hell! But that comes with the territory. You can feel the texture, but it’s not super scratchy. You could wear it as is, but it’s when you add a shiny top coat that it really comes to life!
Nicole by OPI Kendall on the Katwalk eats top coat. You put on one layer of top coat, and it looks really smooth, but then when it’s completely dry, the glitter sucks up the top coat and it becomes textured again.
This doesn’t bother me, but if you want it to be slick, this is what you can do: apply a regular non-fast-drying top coat and then apply a thick fast-drying top coat over it. Of course, the more layers of polish you apply may make your manicure more prone to chipping.
Application & Formula
I was quite pleased with the formula. It’s highly pigmented, so you’ll only need two coats to achieve full opacity. And it goes on fairly easily. My bottle had a great formula – it wasn’t thick and goopy like I thought it would be. Very easy to control and apply it where you want.
Another plus is that this polish dried fast, so you can finish your manicure in no time!
Final Verdict: 10/10
It should be obvious that I’m in love with Kendall on the Katwalk from Nicole by OPI! It’s a brilliant colour with superb application and pigmentation. Truly impressive and inspiring!
