OPI - Nicki Minaj Collection

Although there's five polishes & a Crackle with this collection, I opted for just three shades; one creme & two glittery polishes.

Metallic 4 Life

Metallic 4 Life is a black base packed with silver glitter in varying sizes. I found the base to be quite sheer, it took three coats to get an opaque finish. Quite a thick polish. Because of the sheer base & glitter, Metallic 4 Life works best over a black creme polish & it makes removal a bit easier.

Metallic 4 Life - 3 coats

Save Me

Save Me is a clear base full of small silver glitter plus blue & orange holographic bar glitter. Took 4 coats to get really good coverage with this one, but it applied easily. I tried it over a gunmetal shade & a dark blue, black & silver would also make great base shades for this one.

Did It On 'Em

The last polish I got is Did It On 'Em, a bright chartreuse creme. This applied very smoothly & was opaque with two coats.
Reminded me of a couple of polishes I had in my stash; Illamasqua's Radium & OPI's Who The Shrek Are You?

Did It On 'Em (Ignore the stray fluff,  a topcoat-related accident)

For the comparison photo, I didn't apply a topcoat to any of the colours. Did It On 'Em is more yellow-toned than either Radium or Who The Shrek Are You?. Radium has a shimmer to it whilst both OPI shades are cremes. If you already own Who The Shrek Are You? you could skip Did It On 'Em, there isn't a huge difference between the two.
