OPI - A Little Nookie

Hello everyone,

Now this is a genuine winter swatch... no sunshine, not good light for good quality pictures, no nothing! I'm sorry for the low-quality pictures, but the light is very bad today. I have however chosen to swatch a little bit today because I happen to be at home and to have some time! 

So I've decided to start swatchig all of my polish bottles I have since like more than a year ago and that I haven't swatched yet!

A Little Nookie is one the first OPI polishes I've ever purchased, I guess it was in my very fist big command, back in the fall of 2009. I have worn it 2 or 3 times, because is such a neat and neutral colour. I really love it! It is one of those black labeled OPIs that today are quite hard to find: A Little Nookie is part of the Sheer Romance Collection 2002! 2002!!! :) A polish from a collection released 10 years ago! Now that's an oldie. I didn't know when I bought it, but I'm happy I did ;)
It's got an adorable satin-like finish, is easy to work-with and the application is great. It is sheer indeed, as the collection name stipulates, but it builds up very well.
Here I'm wearing 3 coats of A Little Nookie, no top, and I think I could've used 2 more for full opacity. But I can't say that I dislike the VNL with this kind of shades (not like the "sorbets" from the Texas Collection!) . I think it was made to be like this, and it is very lovely. 

In conclusion:
Formula: 4/5
Application: 5/5
Drying time: 4/5
Finish: 5/5
Opacity: N/A*

Overall:  4.5/5

Thank you for watching!


* I've decided that announced sheer polishes will not be noted on their opacity, as from the beginning we know that there isn't supposed to be any!
