OPI Nicki Minaj Collection: Fly, Save Me, & Metallic 4 Life Nail Polish Pictures/Swatches

Today I have 3 of the polishes from OPI's new Nicki Minaj collection. I bought these weeks ago, and I've been itching to wear them.  Now that I'm mostly unpacked, I can focus on my polishes- yay!

There is also a  bubblegum pink, chartreuse green, and a purple shatter that rounds this collection out.  These were my 3 favs though:


 "Fly" is all of my favorite things wrapped in one package... first, if you know me, you know my obsession with teals and turquoises.  This is a creamy, robin's egg beauty. Second, this is my favorite type of polish finish... that jelly-creme hybrid that glides on effortlessly and dries pretty fast too.  Love at first swatch:


Next up is "Save Me", a holographic silver glitter explosion (2 layers shown):




I couldn't resist seeing what this would look like over 'Fly'...here is 1 layer on top:

And last we have "Metallic 4 Life".  I thought this would be just another black and sliver glitter combo, but I can't help but feel this one is different somehow. The black base is actually a jelly, and the polish is LOADED with silver glitter of all sizes, yet dries surprisingly smooth.  I was afraid this would be that scratchy type of glitter (think China Glaze "It's Alive" or "Material Girl") but it's not...it's extremely wearable:



I just couldn't bring myself to pick up the "Super Bass" shatter....I always regret buying the shatters since I only use them once.  I do want to get the other 2 cremes in the collection however...they are so perfect for Spring.

Do any of these jump out at you?

  1. Love your choices, Maribeth and as always, fab swatches - you really show off "Fly" to perfection! Isn't it just the happiest colour? Especially with all the crappy weather we've had lately, it's nice to have that breath of blue!
