Minaj Minis make today a Pink Friday

Two weeks ago myself and Sile went to the Beauty Show at the RDS along with our partners in crime Karen (click here to check out her bits) and Sue (click here to check out her cherry).  Of course we spent more than we were supposed to, of course we bought things we probably didn't need, but I would like to add that we were quite restrained (kinda).

Even though I keep saying "I'm not really that into nail polish", I manage to buy quite a bit of it.  When I saw the Nicki Minaj for OPI minis I had to get the set, even though I don't know a lot about her besides what I see in magazines (and that one song that gets stuck in my brain - I am obviously not "down with the kids").  The colours are bright and in one case a little obnoxious - perfect for moi.


The colours in the set are:
Did it on Em (whats that about??) and its a chartreuse green- some people will hate this colour I LOVE IT
Fly - a beautiful bright teal
Pink Friday - a cream pastel pink
Metallic for life - a grey glitter

With a set of 4 it's hard to pick just one colour so I decided on two.  I used the pink on most of my nails and it takes about 3 coats to get it opaque without streaks- it's a cream consistency so it can be a little streaky.  On the ring finger for a bit of an obnoxious pop of even brighter colour I put Did it on Em, the chartreuse. Again I used three coats.

Its a lovely bright spring look, but some of the colours are definitely not for everybody. Pin It
