OPI | Nicki Minaj Collection | Review + Swatches

I've been excited  since the moment I heard that Nicki Minaj had team up with OPI for her very own collection! I actually love Nicki and whether you're a fan or not, if you're a polish'aholic like me then I'm pretty sure you're going to love these shades! The line features six limited edition nail lacquers in addition to Super Bass Shatter, ranging from fantastic pink, rainbow confetti glitter and charcoal sparkle hues to two green shades in lime and teal. Check out my swatches & full review below.  

Pink Friday
Kick off the weekend with this pop! of bubble gum pink.

Did It On 'Em
A lusty little lacquer that loves the "lime-light".

I came to win, to fight...and to wear this aqua.

Super Bass Shatter
A record-setting purple that "shatters" before your eyes.

Metallic 4 Life
This charcoal sparkle flies with the stars in the skies. 

Save Me
I drove for miles just to find this silver-rainbow glitter. 

Glow: Ok, even though this is a relatively small collection I think they did a wonderful job with the color selection! My camera doesn't really capture the true essence of "Dit It On 'Em", it's more of a lime/neon green. I really like that they incorporated a shatter into this collection as well as two glitters. "Save Me" which is a rainbow glitter that is very reminiscent of confetti, it can be worn alone or paired on top of another color.

Glare: The formula was a little touch and go with Pink Friday and Dit it On 'Em, for me. They were a tad transparent and streaky and I needed to apply three coats for them to become opaque.

Would I Recommend It? Sure would! Especially if you're a fan of Nicki Minaj then this collection is a must have.

Where To Buy: The Nicki Minaj Collection is currently available in various retailers nationwide. Each polish retails for about $8.50 each. To purchase, learn more, or to locate a retailer nearest you please visit www.opi.com.
