Hi Girls.. How are you guys doing? Hope all is doing well. Well before I proceed, Happy New Year!! Hope everyone celebrates it well. Anyways, today’s swatches is on OPI nicki Minaj Collection. This collection comes in a pack of 6 colors. 3 cremes, 2 glitters, and 1 shatter. Truthfully, im tired of these shatters. I don’t know why don they just move to a different phase rather than getting stuck in the shatter phase. Seriously! I know this might sound insane but I think the real nail polish world is stuck kind of a year behind. China produced shatter like polishes like few years ago. 2 years back they created the magnetic polishes, and last year I found mood changing- temperature nail polishes. I wonder when are all those big nail polish companies bringing these in? I know this year CG is producing the magnetic polishes. So is this year the year of magnetic polishes? We shall wait and see:-)
Regardless, here are the swatches for the Nicki Minaj Collection.
This is a normal blue but this is also a favorite of mine in this collection. Why? Coz I love crèmes, and I love BLUE!! This color is very similar to china glaze’s custom kicks. Application was ok. Im starting to dislike OPI’s prowide brush. Is it just me or does any1 realize that the brushes are getting quite hard that it produces streaks when you apply these polishes? Also, its getting too wide!
Did it On Em’
Yellow! Who the Shrek are you- one shade lighter yellow. Another repeated color. Regardless, I can’t find who the shrek are you anymore so I guess this is what that will replace it. Again same application issue as above.
Pinks.. Now what can I say? Too many pinks? This was 2 coats. Its quite opaque compared to the other pinks. Same application issue as above.
Metallic 4 Life
This is a black base with large silver glitters. If you have Nubar’s Knight amour, or CG’s haunting. U probably don need this. However, this has bigger glitter than the other two though. Application was slightly easier with this compared to the crèmes.
Save me is a holographic glitter polish with long glitters. The swatches here doesn’t do any justice to this color. Its quite nice in real life. Not my cup of tea though. Application was easy, but I needed 4 coats for this swatch. Removing it was a pain though:-(
Super Bass Shatter
Super Bass Shatter is a purple shatter. It went well with all the crèmes. It didn’t cracked as much on ‘save me’. Application was easy and it cracked easily too when you put on a very thin layer.
So.. What you think?
Here are some of the NYXCosmetics matte nail polish i have. Basically, the application was smooth, drying time was awesome --> Very very forgiving for a matte polish, and i love the brush!! Its so so smooth! anyway, here's the colors:
