Day 322: OPI – Metallic 4 Life

Hey Dolls,

I have another awesome glitter from OPI’s Nicki Minaj Collection this one is called Metallic 4 Life. Metallic 4 Life has a small, medium and larger hexagonal silver glitter in a black base. It is absolutely jammed packed with glitter which makes it quite gloopy, but that’s just how heavily glittered polishes are, it’s how it applies that matters and it applies perfectly smooth. I love this one the black base is a little on the sheer side so it you don’t want to do two to three coats of this you can try it over a black polish. It’s gorgeous. Sparkly and different. Love it! I don’t know if I have anything like this one or not if I do I’ll do a comparison. This is one of my favorite shades from the nicki minaj collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel….

Day 313: China Glaze – Glittering Garland

Hello Dolls,

I’m so sorry I have been MIA for awhile I went back to work after my long vacation and I’ve been a little tied up but I’m back I know I owe you a few post’s so bare with me. Today’s polish is called Glittering Garland from China Glaze’s Let It Snow Collection, Holiday 2011. Glittering Garland is a dark green semi-transparent jelly base with green micro-glitter nail polish color. I am madly in love with the light Green shimmer in this because it’s not really a bright, in-your-face, type of shimmer. This is more of a “glow from beneath” shimmer that lights up the creamy base. The formula for Glittering Garland is absolutely great and only takes Two coats to become opaque. Glittering Garland is the star of China Glaze’s 2011 holiday collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…

Day 312: China Glaze – Skyscraper

Hey Dolls,

How are ya? lol i’m great today I have a fun glitter fort you it is called Skyscraper from China Glaze’s Metro Collection. At first I only owned this in a mini because I bought the mini four pack and it came with three out of the four colors I wanted but I didn’t realize I would hate mini bottle brushes ugh they suck, so long story short I went into sally’s a few weeks ago and they had polishes on clearance and what do you know they had a big bottle of Skyscraper on sale for $1.99 you best believe I snatched that one up with a quickness lol. Skyscraper is a translucent blue-violet color base with lots of silver glitter. It is mostly opaque in two to three coats. but if you prefer you can layer it over a similar shade or over something totally different to change it up a bit. It doesn’t dry gritty at all and one coat of your favorite top coat gives it a great smooth finish. Skyscraper will be a little difficult to remove, like any other glitter-based polish, if worn alone and as densely as shown in the swatches, so I recommend soaking a piece of felt in remover and pressing against the nail for 15-20 seconds, then pull to remove. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 307: Ruby Pumps

Hey Dolls,

How ya doing? I am loving vacation even though I keep waking up early ugh I wanted to sleep in but oh well. Today’s nail ‘s polish is awesome sauce for a red polish yes I actually said I love a red oh my. Lions Tigers and Bears Oh My…… lol. Today’s polish is called Ruby Pumps from the re-released Wizard of OOH AHZ  Collection. Ruby Pumps is a  red jelly with sparkly red glitter. I love this one it really does look like Dorthy’s ruby red slippers. This one becomes opaque in two to three coats. It does dry a little matte and gritty so a fabulous clear top coat will take care of that. I am so happy China Glaze re-released this collection and listened to all the nail polish lovers and fans out there. The re-released this collection to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the film The Wizard Of Oz. I love this movie even though it scared me as a child I love it that much more. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 265: Deborah Lippmann-Forget You

Hey Dolls,

I have a fantastic glitter bomb for you today, it is called Forget You from Deborah Lippmann”s Get This Party Started Trio. Forget You is Multicolored and Multisized Hexagonal  glitter in a black jelly base. This one looked very promising in the bottle, but it fell a bit short once it’s on my nails. It looks good, but not as good as Happy Birthday. The black base in this shade seems to be the same jelly-ish type as with her other glitter shades, such as Across The Universe. If you want to save the trouble of having multiple layers with this shade, use a black base underneath.The multicolored glitter looks “forced” on some spots of my nails. I think using only one layer of this shade would alleviate this look. I was a little worried about this one, that maybe the black wouldn’t let the glitter peek through enough but nope…not the case! I really love this one. I do prefer Candy Shop in this trio but  not by much. The formula on both Forget You and Candy Shop was a little thick due to the amount of glitter in them but they were pretty easy to apply no troubles at all. You can get away with two coats but I did three, or if you prefer since the base is a jelly you can wear it over a solid black so you don’t have to put on so many layers. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 260: OPI – Meep- Meep- Meep

Hey Dolls,

Today I have a fun polish for you it is called Meep-Meep-Meep from OPI’s The Muppet’s Collection. Meep-Meep-Meep is a beautiful deep, blue toned, reddened magenta jelly base that is full of delicate, iridescent floating flakies. The flakies are magical, flashing back in pink, fuchsia, red, gold and even blue sparks, at the right angle. This polish isn’t really a color I would normally buy or wear but I’m a sucker for a complete collection and glass flakies in my polish. The formula for this polish is OPI-licious. Smooth and easy to work with. I had no trouble controlling how this polish applied as it flowed off of that fabulous Pro-Wide brush. I had very little cleanup and very little dry time was good. Do I recommend that you grab it if you see it? Definitely. It isn’t the longest lasting polish I have ever met, but it is beautiful and well worth owning and wearing. My pictures really don’t show the gorgeousness of the polish – it’s much juicier and glass-flecky and gorgeous in real life. It’s absolutely dazzling, especially in the sun. I used three coats. It covered really well, typical of OPI quality. I think is an all-around pleasing color and that even though it might not be the attention getter among all the crazy glitters in this collection, I bet it’d look great on lots of people if they gave it a chance! On to the nail porn until next, nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 251: OPI – DS Mystery

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun awesome polish for you today it is called DS Mystery it is from OPI”s Designer Shades Collection. Ds Mystery is a deep translucent or jelly-like purple base with tons of gold shimmer flakes. It’s not glitter circles- they’re tiny, super thin little flecks of gold. Irregular shapes. Smooth, not bumpy. On the first coat you can see that the base is a vibrant blue-toned purple with glistening gold dust. I like the way it looks with one coat, but I hate visible nail line so I do three . With two coats it becomes a deep vampy purple jelly with a large amount of gold flakes. This is unique in my collection and it’s amazeballs on the nail. I love this color at first glance in the bottle I thought it was black until I swatched it and found out it was purple it is so yummy. The formula is thin, smooth, very quick drying, and easy to apply. This becomes  very opaque in two to three coats. Love the color, love the brand, love the name, love the brush I love everything about this polish. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..
