OPI Absolutely Alice (A.K.A. OMG AUGHmmmmhmmm yeah)

There is no getting around it, this nail polish is fantastically life changingly beautiful. I can’t even handle it! The thing that makes “Absolutely Alice” so wonderful is that it is not just glitter. Well, it is just glitter, but it’s so beautiful that it doesn’t seem like it. It seems like this beautiful top coat on top of beautifully shimmery nail polish. Lets get down into it. It’s bright but still wearable blue based blue and gold glitter. The gold glitter is interspersed with just enough rarity that it gives the impression of floating. It has a flatness (in a good way) so that it is not even handle-ably wearable and beautiful and amazing. It’s the kind of nail polish that causes you to get distracted in the middle of class, meetings, writing… of course it is gritty (though not as much as most glitters, a nice coat of Seche fixes that immediately) and chips quite easily (though it does not perform the surprise WHOLE FINGER DISSAPEARING thing that the burlesque polishes from OPI do.) but it’s so worth it. Enough! On to the pictures:

And then, because I got so many greens, I did a skittles manicure, with green crèmes on the left, and green glitters (which was an epic fail, that smudged all over me and did not include my new burlesque, because I want to wait to do a full manicure of it!)

So…

Without further ado…

Zoya – Shawn (not new, but I wanted to compare to “Yes, I Can”)

Then the glitters!

I’m sorry these are so messy; they were ridiculous, and all over my hands! Too much to handle!

BRING ON THE BLING! -OPI Burlesque

This… nail polish? I feel like the pure passion encased in this little bottle defies the narrow definition of polish for nails… it’s polish for LIFE.

Just a wee bit dramatic (but not overdramatic, because this glitter deserves all the drama it gets). It’s a whole buttload of gold glitter in a clear base. Theres also green and red glitter in there. Here’s a technical photo (3 coats)

the beautiful thing about this polish is that unlike most glitter polishes, it is SO full of glitter that it does not have to get bulbous and bumpy on the nail. It finishes and wears like a normal nail polish (but sure doesn’t look like one!).

Pretty Pretty Pictures!

i love it basically.

The only problem i’ve had is that sometimes THE WHOLE NAIL will just pop off. It’s bizzare.

love,

Frida
