O.P.I Nicki Minaj Collection Swatches

Good morning loves and happy Friday!

  Today's post will be REALLY quick because guess what?? It is really late, I am really tired and I am pretty much ready to be done for the night lol. So here we go.. Nicki Minaj for O.P.I. 
 To see swatches of this collection continure reading.


SO you are probably wondering where Super Bass Shatter is... I will show you guys the shatter layerings on its own post. For now please enjoy the cremes and glitters. 
Pink Friday is an awesome bubblegum shade of Pink. It is rather safe considering that this is a Nicki Minaj collection but it is a pretty color non the less. The formula is pretty good but it does take Three coats.

Did it on 'Em is a bright Chartreusey- Lime Green. It is a really interesting color. It kind of reminds me of China Glaze's Electric Pineapple but with more Green. This color has a great formula. This one is also a Three coater.

Fly. This one is a bright Teal creme. It's pretty freakin awesome but I feel like I've seen this color a few times before. This is Nicki Minaj people!!!!! C'mon!! Double on the base coat. Two coat formula.

Save Me. This is a mix of Pink and Blue Holo bar glitters in a clear base with Silver micro glitter packed in. It goes opaque on its own after Three coats.

Metallic 4 Life is a Black Jelly base with small square, small Hex and larger Silver Hex packed in the base. This one goes opaque in Three coats. I really loved this one a lot. I love how the glitter looks like it is drowning in the Black jelly.
Overall, I think this is a cute and fun collection but it feels rather safe and tame for being inspired or put together by Nicki Minaj. I mean, she is out there, crazy and pretty unique. These colors don't really have any of those qualities. I feel like they could have done more with these colors... More glitter? More shimmer? Flakes? Matte finishes? IDK.... Something is missing...

What do my lovelies think?

  2. I would think that the creams would have a lot more shimmer or flakies in it. I'm not a big fan of the WOOHOO look at me glitters/flakies/madness ;) But it being Nikki Minaj and all, I kind of expected a bit more. I figured the cremes would be more neon, have more pop or something, but hey, that's just me. :)

  5. While I do really like the colours from this collection, I agree that it does seem pretty tame for someone like Nicki Minaj.

    Other than that your swatches are lovely. :)

  8. REALLY like "Save Me"! It would look so pretty over any of the creme bases! "Metallic 4 Life" is awesome too. I'm thinking a perfect pairing with my marcasite jewelry! Thanks so much for sharing.

  14. I LOVE Metallic 4 Life. I haven't tried any of the others I bought yet, but I'm looking forward to trying Fly & Did It on 'Em. I'm not crazy about the pink and I'm undecided about the bar glitter in Save Me. I have Super Bass too, but I haven't tried it yet. I may be behind the times, but I still love a crackle!

  19. I love all of these colors except for the green... I'm just not a that shade of green kind of gal I guess. I do like green nails, just not that kind of green. I'm a sucker for pink, and I'd have to pick that one as my favorite from this collection.
