Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve

I've got one of Nicole by OPI's new Target exclusives to share with you today: Just Busta Mauve! (Ugh, that name...) Just Busta Mauve is easily one of the most unique polishes NOPI has ever done and one of the best too, if you ask me. Just Busta Mauve has a dark reddish bronze base filled with blue, orange, pink and purple shimmer, plus a spash of strong gold duochrome to top it all off. This polish is seriously incredible!



When I hear the word "mauve," I instantly think grandma nails. But as you can see, Just Busta Mauve is anything but! This depth this polish has is insane! There's a lot of colors in the mix but they all come together as a surprisingly cohesive whole and the shimmer is so intensely shiny that the overall finish resembles a foil. The formula performs well but is a bit sheer for my tastes. I used four coats here.

Pictures don't do this polish any justice. NOPI truly outdid themselves here. Just Busta Mauve is ridiculously gorgeous. For me, this is one of those "run, don't walk" polishes that you have to grab as soon as you see it!

  1. I love the bits of blue all up in this, and the foil-y shimmer is awesome! Yeah, "mauve" usually doesn't excite me, but this is such a rich, great shade. And that name...hah! Truly horrible, but I love it. >_<

  2. Gorgeous! This is such a fantastic polish, I can't believe a polish with "mauve" in the title is so awesome!

  3. That is so cool! What a unique find! The polish seems more bronzey to me, too bad the name isn't something involving the word bronze instead, haha.

  5. Wow, this is too pretty! The different colours of the shimmer with the combination of the base colour are seriously amazing, it's something I never would have put together but now I need it! The name doesn't do this one justice.

    1. Absolutely, there are so many colors that it shouldn't work together, yet it does. I have no idea why they gave this such a crummy name!

  6. I'm with you re: mauve. The word is like nails on a chalkboard. But you're right! This polish is very cool and super fun for fall!

    1. Exactly, anything mauve must usually be avoided at all costs! Surely NOPI has to know that!

    1. The blue specks really pop against all the autumn-y tones in the rest of the polish! It's so pretty!
