OPI Nicki Minaj Metallic 4 Life under OPI Pink Shatter

hey, everyone! happy Tuesday! for my first post i'm going to be using OPI Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj collection. for some reason a store i live near gets the new collections a month to two months before the slated release date... this of course makes me SO HAPPY! i'm also going to use the OPI Pink Shatter released earlier in 2011. my favorite colors are greY (yup, that's how i always write it) and pink.... so it only makes sense that my first post uses those colors :) 

on to the polish!

Metallic 4 Life is a delicious glitter composed of a black jelly base and varying sizes of silver glitter. the effect is a stunning, steely, sparkly polish that is easily my favorite dark greY i own, beating out all other finishes! loved the formula, this is two coats with two coat of Seche Vite on top. some of the OTT pictures showed bald spots, but i only saw one in person, and that was with really looking and turning my nails to different angles!

the top photo was taken in incandescent light to show the different glitters and the bottom one under an OTT light to show the sparkly awesomeness!

the Pink Shatter was a huge disappointment for me. i was so excited for it to be released... then it was a major buzz kill to find out it is SO sheer! it actually photographs far more opaque than it actually looks in person. this is one coat over Metallic 4 Life and topped with one coat of Seche Vite.

i know most people are wayyyyy over crackle polishes... but i just can't get enough! a purple shatter is included in the Minaj collection, that will be my next post! 

hope you enjoyed this first bloggie post! :) Ria
