Nicole by OPI and Dove Chocolates Discover Your Dark Side Sweepstakes: Better After Dark and Promises in the Dark Swatch and Review

press sample
Nail polish AND chocolate? A big fat (no pun intended) yes for me. I received these two chocolate inspired shades by Nicole by OPI to review plus two bags of Dove chocolates. I'm terribly sorry I don't have photos of the chocolates to show you. But that is just evidence of how really very good they are! I could not stop eating them. My 4 year old boys were in heaven every time I said yes, they could have another. (They asked every day until they were gone!) So if you are wondering if you want to enter this sweepstakes, or run out and pick up these chocolates...I say you will not be disappointed. I'm going to give you the details from the official press release..then the yummy (pun intended) swatches.

DOVE® Dark Chocolate and NICOLE by OPI® celebrate the New Year with the launch of the “Discover Your Dark Side in the New Year Sweepstakes.”  The Facebook-based promotion will randomly award 25,000 entrants with two exclusive NICOLE by OPI® nail lacquer shades inspired by DOVE® Dark Chocolate: “Better After Dark” and “Promises in the Dark.”
As the #1 solid dark chocolate on the market[1], the unique, silky-smooth taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate lives up to people’s expectations of what chocolate should taste like. Available in four varieties, including new DOVE® Silky Smooth Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolate, DOVE® uses carefully selected cocoa beans to deliver its signature taste and a special process that delivers the unique, silky-smooth texture.

“In 2014, we want to encourage people to discover the delicious taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate, which offers a creamy taste experience that shatters the perception that dark chocolate tastes bitter,” said Roy Benin, Chief Consumer Officer, Mars Chocolate North America. “With this sweepstakes, we’re putting the silky-smooth taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate at people’s fingertips with the always smooth nail polish experience from NICOLE by OPI®.”

Nicole by OPI Better After Dark - gorgeous warm brown with visible pink shimmer. Great formula, two easy coats here. You can see, I used Nicole by OPI matte top coat on ring finger and thumb.

The matte top coat really changes the appearance of this one, right? I like it both ways but the shimmer is much more apparent in the glossy version.

Nicole by OPI Promises in the Dark - a dark chocolate brown. Another great formula, no issues, this is two easy coats. I really didn't want to take this one off. I've really been craving matte nails lately. Loving how this one looks matte too.

  2. I've always been a shiny glossy girl, but the mattes are growing on me and I do like them for an accent nail as you have done. I am hoping to win these beautiful polishes.
