OPI Rainbow Connection

I visited the wholesalers with my friend (whose mum is a hairdresser) the other day, to see what the place had to offer. It was like heaven! We were like kids in a sweet shop.

In my previous blog post on munch and makeup, I said how I do like glitter! So when I saw the OPI rainbow connection nail polish glittering on the shelf, I couldn’t contain my excitement. The bottle looked so pretty and even better in real life compared to the photos that I’ve seen floating around the net.

When painting it on my nails, I skipped a coloured base, just to see how glittery it looked without it. However, I think my nails would look so much better with a dark coloured base, maybe black, grey or navy blue which I’ll try next time.

To get the amount of glitter I wanted, I used 3 coats of the nail polish. Unfortunately after 1 day of wearing it, the polish started to chip. It wouldn’t be noticeable to anyone else, but I could just see it myself which bothered me a little bit!

Overall, it was a great purchase and I can’t wait to try it with a coloured base.

I also bought the muppettes mini ail lacquers, which I shall be testing out – once I’ve managed to get this glitter off my nails!

Champagne Sparkles

Without wanting to sound like I’m under the age of 10, I have to admit, I do like glitter. However, the glitter for my eyes and nails only come out at around Christmas, as it’s probably the only excusable time to wear it!

In one of my previous posts on munch and makeup, I blogged about my Models Own order. One nail polish that I bought was their metallic coloured nail polish ‘Champagne’.

I used 3 layers, but I could have happily worn 2 layers of the polish. It’s surprisingly more sparkly than I thought the colour was going to be.

The nail polish hasn’t chipped at all. The only downside is that the shininess keeps distracting me when I’m typing!

What do you think about sparkles and glitter?
