Nic - Bombshell is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Want to love it... I really want to love this one. The color is beautiful, but coverage isn't good - uneven - and it's way too thick. I ended up with a mess trying to put it on. May by some polish thinner and try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black cherry beauty Nic is a deep, vampy shade that has an air of elegant confidence about it. It is the color of black cherries – so dark a red that it appears nearly black to the eye. It reminds me a bit of merlots, especially while wet. It went on beautifully with two coats. Three might be an option if you miss a spot or two, didn't get close enough to your cuticle, et cetera, but two was perfect for my purposes. I accidentally applied too much polish when a blob dripped off of the wand, leaving a lumpy texture. Oops! Upon removing the polish and repainting my right thumb, I noticed that I was much better at getting the color even the second time around. It is a very level and deep shade when two coats are evenly applied. Just have patience, remember to shake the bottle a LOT before applying, and be ready to paint over the thinner parts of the distributed color when painting your second coat. I loved wearing it. Despite being very hands-on last week, it was everlasting and faithful in its resistance to chipping. I am very impressed with its durability. Though it is nearly black, there was not one stain on my nails when I removed it today. I heart Nic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Darker and thinner than expected While some reviews say this formula is too thick, mine seemed to be too thin. I received Nic in Reindeer Games so maybe they worked on the formula? I needed 3 coats to get the color even and full. Then after applying, it's much darker than pictured. It's more of a red-black on my nails. I'll still wear it multiple times, was just a bit disappointed in the end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color! I purchased this color last month and I'm glad that I did! I'm in love with this shade and finish. It took about two coats for me to get that effect in the picture. This is a definite color you can wear to work, casual hang out or night out on the town. I will definitely stock up on this color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like this color This polish is far more burgundy than in the photos and dries up to a high shine. I liked it alot however I seemed to chip it almost immediately unlike my other polishes ( I use mostly matte polishes ). I'm not sure if this is just something to expect with creme finish or not. Even with that issue, I really love this shade and wish I had a lipgloss to match it. I would definitely reccommend to my friends that love the darker colors.
