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?

A few weeks ago I was invited to the launch of a new makeup brand called FashionistA set to hit Superdrugs this October. There are a few things from the new range that I want to share with you but today’s post is mainly about the New Nail Lacquers being released by FasionistA and The Saturdays. The Saturdays were there to talk about the inspiration behind the nail polishes and even the names of the colours are inspired by their songs.

Each one of the girls has their own colour Rochelle has ‘All Fired Up Red’, Frankie is ‘Notorious Silver’, Mollie has ‘Purple Me Up’, Una’s created ‘Ego Green’ and Vanessa has ‘Forever is Blue’.

I got two of the colours Forever is Blue and Notorious Silver. They come with a separate magnet which fits nicely on top of the nail polishes as above.

I thought I would also swatch the colours without the magnetic effect as I know the magnetic result isn’t for everyone.

Forever is Blue

How is works?
Paint your nails with the nail polish, you will need two coats. When the second coat is still wet hold the special magnet still over the nails for about 8-10 seconds and your normal nail polish will have transformed!

Notorious Silver

Magnetic nail polishes are appearing everywhere now and seem to be replacing the cracking nail polish. Nails inc. Filthy Gorgeous and 17 have also released magnetic nail polishes all with a similar magnet however Fashionista have said they will be releasing other magnets with different patterns.

Overall I think that the idea behind these are great they are almost like easy nail art but I doubt I will buy any Magnetic nail polishes. I think the final result is far more messy then they would look if you didn’t use the magnet, I also kept leaning the magnet against my nails which meant my nails kept smudging.

The nail polishes retail for a little steep £6, the magnet for £3 and are available only from Superdrugs

What do you think of the final look? Will you be trying it?
