Nicole by O.P.I. You Can! | Swatches

Hey all! I know I hardly do nail swatches, but I have a few newer polishes to show you. I picked up this one on clearance in Bed, Bath and Beyond (yes I had no idea they even sold make up). I think it was about $3-4USD and I had used a coupon as well. So YAY for the savings! These are usually $8, if you go in a BBB check the clearance bin for nice polishes.  This is Nicole by O.P.I. "You Can!". I love what the description says on their website!

It's been a while since I had any nude polishes, so I though this would do the trick.  "You Can!" is a sheer beige frost which I think could be built up to opacity by 3 thin coats.  In these photos, I did just 2 coats to show you, but you could do more if you have the time and patience to spare.

As with most frosty polishes, it's prone to some streaking and  these're also a bit of drag. I'm not really a fan of the brush on this polish either, but a more recent Nicole by O.P.I. I had also picked up had a much larger, nicer brush. This one is a bit harder to apply.

You'd need to buff your nails to get a really smooth application, or follow this trick from Leslie at Polish Art Addict. Still love the colour though. Very school- or work appropriate. I think this is from 2011 and an Nicole by O.P.I. permanent.

What's your favourite nude polish? Have you ever used this colour?


  1. Nice shade :)
