OPI Pink Friday & Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle

Happy Thursday everyone! The weekend is almost here, and I'm getting really excited! The Dragonboat Festival is coming to Ottawa this weekend, and my boyfriend and I have started a little tradition of going every year. It's always fun to visit the beach, listen to live music (Sloan, Sam Roberts Band, & more are playing this year!), and soak up the rays. If you're in Ottawa this weekend, you should definitely check it out at Mooney's Bay! Now onto today's review, glitter nail polish! I paired OPI's Pink Friday* (reviewed here), and Nicole by OPI's Inner Sparkle* from the Selena Gomez Collection.

Pink Friday is a beautiful light pale pink polish that has an amazing formula. This shade was limited edition as a part of the Nicki Minaj Collection, so if you can't find this anywhere I think that OPI's Mod Squad is fairly similar. I then added two layers of Nicole by OPI's Inner Sparkle, which was recently released as a part of the Selena Gomez Collection. Inner Sparkle is a pretty lilac and pink hex glitter along with smaller gold glitter pieces suspended in a clear base. You could really layer this glitter over any shade of polish, and I'm excited to layer it over shades like OPI's Do You Lilac It? and OPI's Alpine Snow.

This wasn't the easiest glitter polish to work with, as I found that you really had to work with the brush to make sure that each nail had glitter on it. I had to use two - three coats of Inner Sparkle to get a glittery look to my nails. If you only want a really light coat of glitter, then you might be able to get away with only one coat. Even though this polish is a bit tricky to work with, I think that the end result is absolutely gorgeous! It's not secret that I'm a big fan of glitter polishes, so this one was right up my alley. 

Have you picked up any of Nicole by OPI's Selena Gomez polishes yet? Which shades are your favourites? :)

  1. Those nails are so pretty! They remind me of the Illamasqua speckled nail varnishes, never tried OPI but I love the look of Pink Friday x
