OPI & Nicki Minaj

 I would completely be lying if I said I don't like Nicki Minaj, everytime Super Bass comes on I can not help but sing the whole of it and I often even consider a rewind. I had seen a few pictures of the new Nicki Minaj for OPI nails polishes earlier in the week but I thought it wasn't available yet in the UK however whilst in Westfield I managed to spot the set and I had to pick it up!
 I am a huge fan of mini nail polishes, especially as I rarely use a nail polish more then 3 times, I love that you can try out lots of different colours for a much more affordable price. The Nicki Minaj set comes with four 3.75ml bottles in the colours Did It On 'Em, Fly, Pink Friday and Metallic 4 Life which are all inspired by her music. There are another two shade Save Me & Super Bass however they didn't come in set
 I think that as collection it is pretty unusual as I think the four colours are all completely different to each other, however it isn't a bad thing as you have four totally different nail polishes which will allow you to create totally different looks!
 Metallic 4 Life
This is probably the one colour I was the least excited about and I am still not in love with it, it is a black polish with medium size silver glitter, it does need a few coats in order to look opaque but I think it's the one nail polish you don't need out of the four. You could achieve the same look with a black polish and a silver glitter polish.
Pink Friday
Originally this was the colour that caught my eye, although I don't usually like pinks I am considering buying this as a full size bottle as its a really nice pink whith a creme finish. It reminds me of the OPI Mod About You however it is slightly darker and more pink. The downside is that it was the hardest colour to apply and needed a few coats. 
Fly
I love the look of this polish, it has a creme finish and is just a beautiful teal colour. It is one of those colour everyone needs, it looks beautiful in the summer but still works as a great pop of colour in the winter.
Did It On 'Em
This shade remind me of some of the Shrek OPI colours but I do quite like it, it is a bright lime green which was really lovely to apply although I wouldn't imagine this colour being for everyone 

Overall a great collection and I would recommend the OPI mini bottles if you already own a lot of nail polishes.

I bought them for £12.75 from Colourcopia

Also, please excuse my nails and cuticles- they have seen better days!

What do you think of Nicki Minaj and the OPI collection?

  6. The black glitter is nice but kind of boring, but I am all about the pink and blue! But I think OPI in general is pretty expensive in the UK so I wouldn't want to spend that money on a polish which applies streaky. So these mini sets are a good idea to try them I guess! Oh and my cuticles look like that too, I blame winter and removing glitter nail polish! :-) x

  14. I am not a fan of her music and videos as they are quite inappropriate as i dont like sex in music and I was even more furious when I seen little Sophia Grace and Rosie singing the song wanting to be like Nicki Minaj....

    I like the nail polish set and I will probably buy it because its a good deal and the colour are lovely but... I will need to bin the box with the very inappropriate lady on it.

  15. I love Fly! It's so pretty!
    As soon as I saw the lime green polish, my first thought was 'Oh it's like the one from the Shrek collection'. But on the nails it looks alot prettier :D

  17. I'm not so keen on metallic 4 life purely because it doesn't seem to fit in with the rest - a nice bubblegum purple would probably go better but I absolutely adore the other shades!! xx
