Nicki Minaj by OPI: Save me, I'm Metallic for Life!

It's no surprise to my friends and family that I am a die hard Nicki Minaj fan! Choose a song and I'll  rap it for ya! Seriously, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga are two of the most powerful women in the industry right now and I am hooked on both of them! ;)

I stopped by a nail supply shop about an hour away from my house just to pick up this set! Today, I'm showing you 2 out of the 6 colors this collection has to offer. Let's get started!

 A HUGE thank you to my little sister for buying them for me as a Christmas present! Love you, little sis! xoxo

Save Me
2 Coats - No TC 
Base: OCC Spanglemaker 

"This time won't you save me, this time won't you save me!" One of my favorite songs from her Pink Friday Album! ;)

Save me is a clear based polish infused with teeny silver micro glitters and blue and silver holo string/bar glitters. Like most bar glitters, getting an even distribution is the story of your life! Consequently, this requires roughly about 3-4 coats + dry time for a generous disperse of glitter. I recommend applying a dark base and using this for layering; this is when the holographic effect is at its peak! Nonetheless, it has beauty written all over it! ;)



Metallic for Life
2 Coats - No TC

"I believe that life is a prize, but to live doesn't mean you're live" Another great song by Nicki; however, the radio always has the tendency to wear songs out! Boo! -_- 

If I had to choose one color from this collection, this is definitely my first choice! It's an intense charcoal infused with both small silver hex glitters and silver micro glitters. I love it, it's definitely "edgy" and reminds me of Roman Zolanski, one of Nicki Minaj's many alter egos. The first coat is a bit sheer, but is opaque after 2-3 coats. I suppose using a black base would speed up the process.

To my knowledge, I believe that this collection will be officially released in early January. However, if you live near any nail supply stores, they may already have them in stock! 

As always, hope this helps and happy shopping!

Have/will you be picking up any colors from the OPI Nicki Minaj Collection? Which are your favorites? Thoughts?! I'd love to know down below!
