Nicole by OPI Modern Family (part 1)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Modern Family.  It is absolutely one of my favorite shows on TV.  I look forward to a new episode all week, and I watch it LIVE (I don't watch anything live - I DVR it all because I can't stand sitting through commercials).  Seriously, if you are not watching Modern Family, PLEASE check out a few episodes.  It is SO FUNNY.  So when I heard that there was a Modern Family polish collection from Nicole by OPI, I was ecstatic!  I was so excited to go through these polishes (I waited until my mother and sister visited before I opened the box so we could do through them together!) and I love the cute names.  If you're a Modern Family lover, these polishes are perfect for you, and if you are not a Modern Family lover, you're so missing out!  Use these polishes as your gateway to your new favorite show :)

My Jay or the Highway
In my family, we all have our characters on Modern Family that most closely resemble us.  My mother is Jay because she is straightforward and a leader (and definitely no-nonsense like Jay).  This no-nonsense nude is the perfect shade for Jay Pritchett, and I might add I think it's a pretty nice slightly gray nude for me too!

I Do De-Claire!
This slightly frosty medium pink is one of my mom's favorites.

Stand By Your Manny
My swatch of this was really goopy; for some reason I had a hard time getting this one to go on smooth and dry.  It is gorgeous in the bottle though - like periwinkle with lots of super fine shimmer.

Basking in Gloria
Who doesn't love Gloria? (And Sophia Vergara, for that matter).  This polish is a dark magenta with fine shimmer.  It went on thin and dried quickly, but covered completely.

Candid Cameron
Seriously, I did not do this beautiful aqua justice.  Shimmering with golden-green flecks, this blue is like the ocean in a bottle.  See the swirl in the bottle?  It's beautiful.  This is one of my favorites.

A Like-Haley Story
This shimmery bold pink is another favorite.  It went on smooth and dried quickly too.

Back in my Gloria Days
This stunning purple is chock-full of purple glitter.  It just glows!

Part 2 coming soon!
