Good Morning! Happy Hannukah and Merry -almost- Christmas! Is anyone still shopping? I am all done! I actually overshopped - I have a bunch of returns, but my mama didn't raise no fool - I am not going anywhere near a mall today or tomorrow! Haha. For Christmas, I bought myself a new car on Sunday - a Prius! I will miss my BMW, for sure, but I love the Prius because it's friendly to both the environment and my wallet. It's a super fun car to drive if you're a tech nerd (like I am), as the car gives you soooo much information about how eco-friendly your driving is! Haha I hope it doesn't get old.
Anyway, as soon as I bought the Prius, what better way to not be eco-friendly than to make an unnecessary trip to the beauty supply! LOL I drove down Sunday night and was surprised to find the new OPI Nicky Minaj Collection available! You can check out the full press release for the collection over at Fashion Polish. I'm trying to be better at controlling my polish spending, so there were only 2 must-have colors for me - Fly, a bright aqua turquoise, and Save Me, a holographic bar glitter in a micro silver glitter base.
These colors are AMAZING! I did a mani with Fly and Save Me as an accent nail. Fly was the to-be-expected OPI formula with great pigmentation, requiring only needed 2 coats. It's a tad more green in reality than showed up in the photo (turquoise is such a hard color to photograph!). Save Me was a little tricky to work with - you have to kind of 'place' the bar glitter on the nail - and this is also 2 coats. I think, for the future, Save Me could use a 3rd coat, but otherwise, I loved both polishes!
Check out how Save Me looks in the bottle - it's very accurate, and it was such a sunny day that in all of my photos the sun is reflecting off the polish like crazy! Here's another look at Save Me up close:
The OPI Nicky Minaj Collection will be available in the usual retailers beginning January 2012. I'm sure another popular color will be Superbass, a deep purple shatter. It was sold out at my beauty supply, but I didn't mind since I'm over the shatter craze anyway. But, if you're interested, keep your eyes peeled - it's going to sell quickly!
