Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink is a hot pink that reminds me of Barbie or Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.
It’s one of those bright pinks that makes you happy just looking at it.
While pink nail polish certainly isn’t my first choice, this one is really fun to wear, and it’s putting me in the mood for spring and summer!
It’s such a cutesy colour, and one of my co-workers liked it a lot. (Hehe, she seems to always compliment me only when I wear pink. She must be a piiiink fieeeend the way I’m a greeeen fieeeend!) 😉

Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink Review
Unfortunately, the weather was overcast when I wore this manicure, so I didn’t get to fully appreciate it in all its glory. (I’ll have to wear it again. Then, who knows? Maybe the clouds will part and then a beam of sunlight will shine upon it as someone hiding in the bushes sings, “Ahhhhh!” and strums a harp. Or maybe that won’t happen. After writing that, I kind of hope it will, though…)
Even though the weather was gloomy, my mood was upbeat when I wore this because it’s such a happy pink. It’s bright, but it’s not neon. (Neon pinks are my favourite types of pinks to wear.)
Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink is creamy and has very slight shimmer. The shimmer keeps it from looking too plain.
If the sunlight came out, I’d be able to report exactly what colour the shimmer is, but…from the overcast days, this looked like the shimmer was a light pink or maybe even a silver. Whatever it is, it’s very subtle and doesn’t steal the spotlight from the base pink.
Application & Formula
I suspect that although Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink isn’t a full-on neon, there must be a little bit of neon in it. I say this because it dries very matte, which is typical of neons.
With this polish, you definitely need to use a shiny top coat to fully enjoy the colour. Without the top coat, I don’t think it looks very attractive because it’s not just matte, but it looks a little uneven. With a top coat, everything seems to even out.
It only required 2 medium coats to achieve full opacity, but I tried 3 just because I wanted to see if it’d make a difference. (I didn’t notice enough of a significant enhancement to recommend a 3rd.)
The formula is on the thicker side, but it’s pretty easy to control, and it goes where you want it to.
At first, you may notice that it looks slightly streaky, but by the second coat, it really looks much better. And then, with a top coat, it’s even better.
Final Verdict: 8/10
I really enjoyed wearing Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink because it’s such a punchy pink. There’s enough contrast between it and my skin tone, and the formula was easy enough to work with.
