NOPI: New Spring Shades - swatches

Back in January, I posted this press release for NOPI's new spring colors. I am happy to say I now have the swatches up for you in time for the warmer weather.  These are already available in stores (details below). Enjoy the swatches, there are a few surprises in the collection:

My favorite of the new colors! This hot pink was two coats, and dried semi matte. I love how soft yet bold this color looks; almost looks like it's textured but it's not. Dry time was very fast and appreciated!
 A great alternative for that gothy black polish, TITD has silver micro glitters throughout and with no top coat and two coats, it seems a bit textured. You could add the top coat but I was liking the grainy look. 
This red is a tad more red and deeper than it photographed and this was ONE coat! It's super opaque and pigmented and unfortunately the trade off is that it was hard to do clean up because well.. it's a red and goes everywhere. Just have a steady hand when you use this color and you'll appreciate it! 
The deepest plum I've photographed in a long time. I left the top coat off because it was photographing to almost look black. You can see it has a bit of shimmer to it but is still shiny, this was 2 thick coats. I also changed the lighting in my box so it didn't photograph black or blue (hence the different skintone). Nice vampy plum for spring. 
Overall the new spring colors are quite bold; you have everything from a Pepto pink matte to a black with silver micro glitter. I'm sure there's at least one to choose from for everyone in the new additions. Dry time was all great on these and the brushes are the nice wide NOPI brushes I love.
