That aside, I have the whole Nicki Minaj Collection to show you. My bf bought me this for Christmas, so I bought the whole collection, otherwise I might've just picked up some of them. Sorry if my pictures are a bit crap, my brother came home and told me the package was laying outside my gate and I was super excited to try them out right away, but it was dark, so I have pics under artificial light. I wish I had a lightbox!
Super Bass Shatter
I don't have a pic of this on its own or anything, but just before the pics, I would just like to comment on the shatter first since I used them over the rest of the collection except for Metallic 4 Life (I thought you wouldn't really see it anyway, so didn't apply it). The formula was good and applied smooth, but it kinda dries and cracks really quickly, so you have to apply it quickly, otherwise if you brush over the same spot, it will drag the polish and kinda make it bumpy. It dried with a matte finish like most crackle/shatter polishes. All pics show no topcoat.
I didn't really want the shatter, but when I had it on, the colour was sooooo nice! If only they had it on its own. Congeniality is My Middle name is similar but not as shimmery and as purple as Super Bass.
Did It on 'Em (with Super Bass Shatter)
I don't really know how to describe this colour? I would say a green mustard colour haha. The formula was okay, with 2 coats for opacity. It did get a bit streaky with too much brush stroking, so I tried to apply it with the minimal amount of strokes. Peculiar colour, but it's very Nicki Minaj like in her Super Bass music video clip outfit! I think this colour would be great for summer nail art :)
Fly (With Super Bass Shatter)
Fly is a dark teal creme, a lot darker than it shows in the pics. I honestly thought it would be brighter, so it's not particularly a favourite. Formula was easy to work with and reached opacity after 2 coats.
Pink Friday (With Super Bass Shatter)
I am such a goddamn sucker for pink (and red) polishes, so I liked this one! It looks different under different lighting, so could be pale in one and darker in others. Pink Friday is a bubblegum pink which I think would be flattering for all skin types. The formula was somewhat similar to Did It On 'Em, a tad streaky. I applied a thicker second coat so I didn't have to go in with a 3rd haha.
Metallic 4 Life
Metallic 4 Life is a black jelly filled with medium silver hex glitters and small silver square glitters. This was a colour that I wanted after seeing the press releases and I wasn't disappointed! The black polish doesn't overpower the silver glitter which is fantastic and it took 2 coats for opacity. Formula was a tad thick, but nothing difficult to work with and the glitters don't move all over the place when applying. I love how its so punk/rock chic!
Save Me (With Super Bass Shatter)
Honestly, I didn't want this polish when I saw it in press releases. I thought the bar glitter in Marry A Millionaire was okay since it was really small, but these were big so I was on the fence. When I applied these, I actually really liked it, despite the large bar glitters! Save Me is a fine silver glitter with holographic bar glitter in a clear base. I love the holographic shine, it's so techno to me! Pics show 2 coats and it covered decently since the bar glitter helps to fill up space. This would be great as a layering polish though :)
Also, there is a Nicki Minaj competition running on the OPI Facebook page and I really want to do it - just have to decide which outfit I want to be inspired by, so do look out for when I make a post about that. It would be great if you all could vote for me when the time comes (you don't have to vote if you don't like, there will probably be a lot of really good entries!)!
At the moment, I'm feeling inspired to do a Nicki Minaj mani that isn't part of the themes in the OPI contest. Look out for that too :D
Also, before I forget, not long till the competition closes! There are 2 days left, so get your entries in! This is becoming a realy long post, so I willl leave it at that!
