NOTD: OPI Metallic 4 Life

When my nails are a mess (breaking and hard to deal with) I just trim them and look for a glitter polish! I love glitter more on my short nails than when my nails are longer. So I decided to break out an OPI polish from the Nicki Minaj collection called Metallic 4 Life. Please excuse the teeth marks around the top of this polish in the picture on the right. I gotta learn to open the bottle before I start my manicure, sometimes the bottle is hard to open and I gotta use my teeth.

BTW…I’m going to the dentist today and I just know he’s gonna get me. One of my teeth has been hurting since last week and you know what that means. He’s gonna take it. I know this. I used to work for a dentist in high school and I’ve been scared of them ever since.

















I did a base coat, two coats of color, and a top coat. I really had trouble with this polish. Its really thick! I usually can use glitter polishes from most brands right out of the bottle. This was thick and kind of lumpy. I didn’t break out my nail thinner but next time I might. This also needed that top coat to make the nail surface smoother. I love the way it looks though. I saw this last weekend (the whole collection) at Ulta so its still out there if you’d like to try it.

    Nice. I think I got this one too. Have you gotten the Milani “dupe” Grand Tux is the name (I think)? It’s part of the limited edition Pure Love collection at Walgreens. It’s really nice too.
