OPI Nicki Minaj Collection

Hey kittens, how is your week going? I have something delightful to show you today, OPI and Nicki Minaj have collaborated to produce 6 stunning nail colors. I don't know much about Nicki but I do enjoy most of her music and I think she's creative as hell. Here are the swatches!

First off is Pink Friday, which is also the name of Miss Minaj's latest album. This is a cotton candy light pink cream. Very girly and wearable. This formula was a little sheer and streaky so I used three coats.

Next is Did It On 'Em, a freaking fab color. I tend to gravitate towards brights and this is nicely bright but not blinding. The green is very yellow toned. Close to but not a dupe for Who the Shrek Are You from 2010's Shrek Forever After collection. I would say in between Shrek and Fiercely Fiona. I used three coats for this.

Another gorgeous color, Fly. Teal-ish turquoise cream. Bright and fun, but not terribly unique. Very pigmented. I used two coats here. Wearing this color makes me happy!

Here is Metallic 4 Life, it has a black base with lots of silver glitter in three sizes, small squares, small hex's and large hex's. It was thicker and more goopey than I expected but still workable. This is three coats. Next time I wear it I'll layer it over a black cream I think. I am LIVING for this polish, so fierce.

Save Me is a glitter-gasm! It's mainly itty bitty silver glitter pieces, and there are lots of holo & blue bar glitter dispersed within a clear base. I expected this one to be more blue toned from the promo images. It's ok on it's own, if you were out in the sun all day! I doubt I'd wear this on it's own, better for layering or gradients. This is three thick coats. Bar glitter can be tricky so take care with application.

And the crowning glory, Nicki's shatter called Super Bass Shatter. It's probably my favorite song of hers and it's now my favorite shade of shatter. Gorgeous dark plum with teeny-tiny pink shimmer. La la love!
