Product: OPI’s Nic’s Sticks in Do You Deliver?Colour: It looks great in the tube, but doesn’t come out as nicely. It’s too matte and brown – much less red than I had expected! It’s great when used as a base for a lighter red, but I hate it on its own. (The photo below is actually a terrible depiction of the colour. Sorry!!!)
Smell: Normal, for a polish – nothing too pungent.
Price: I think this was about $7, but keep in mind that you do not get as much polish as you would in a regular format!
Hook: This product’s hook is that it’s a click-pen polish, like the super-expensive YSL ones. You click the back end to push polish up through the following tip, and you’re supposed to be able to brush it on like a pen.
Application: I found the tip to be much too big. When clicked, polish seemed to spray outwards (I had to click it in a garbage can, because it was getting polish everywhere!) and stay around the base, not coming to the tip of the brush. Which was circular – meaning, the width here is also the width in the other direction. Large and very cumbersome!
The verdict: This polish would be fun to try, but not for the price. I liked the formula but not the applicator, or the colour. If I had to rate this on a scale of one to five, though? 2.5/5 – try it if it’s on sale, just for fun, but application’s a hassle and the payoff isn’t worth it.
