I got a pack in the other day with the new OPI colors by Nicki Minaj and wanted to throw the three bright colors together to see how they played.  They’re definitely fun — Pink Friday, Did It On ‘Em (green) and Fly — but I’m not sure I haven’t seen these colors before…  still, very cute.  While those were tacky on the nail I used the gold sparkle Miji pen to try to get some borders on the color blocks.

Which was kinda dumb.  I’ve been looking at the glitter pens for awhile thinking “there’s no way those tips are squeezing all that glitter through” — hey wouldn’t ya know, kinda right!  Had to keep stopping during application (when the polish coming out was really just a glossy gold snot consistency) to re-cap the pen and try to clear the tube… it’s just not a bright idea for glitter.  Does add a bit more sparkly fun though, slop as it is!

    She picked a good spectrum for sure — and the others are all dark glitters and rad — but I seriously feel like I have these colors already? Zoya? I don’t know, maybe even Color Club’s Mod collection… they’re rad, but I’m not bowled over exactly, not like that visceral “OMG must have it” with some nubars or Chanels or whatever.

    I like what you did here, but I don’t care for the collection as a whole. They’re just not…original enough for me. Maybe I’m jaded by too many awesome polishes, but seriously. Bright (neon?) cremes? Next!

  8. the nerd says:

    exactly! Like, don’t NEED to have it — I’ve seen/bought them before, soooooo didn’t really stretch much of anything. And glitter got done to death last year so even those aren’t a new take on anything.

    I like this a lot! Pinning it!

  11. tyne says:

    i really like the way you used all the colors so cool and i just love the gold lining!

  12. Aren says:

    They may not be super original, but I still want Did It On ‘Em and Fly. Oh, blues and greens, I love you so!

    I like the way this mani came out. Even though the glitter pen gave you sass, I think the end effect is quite snazzy!
