OPI Nicki Minaj Collection: Pink Friday & Metallic 4 Life

The haul post is coming, I swear.  It's actually about 99.9% typed up and saved as a draft.  I just haven't had a chance to take pictures of all the bottles yet.  In the meantime, this is my current manicure, which I did this past weekend.

I have no idea what to call this!  It's another one of those manicures that was not planned out at all.  I was more or less stumped for ideas.  I was thinking of some polishes I had, that I had yet to try, and something kept bringing me back to OPI Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj Collection.  I have the whole Nicki Minaj Collection, but so far I've only used the Super Bass Shatter.  So Saturday night, I started with 3 coats of Pink Friday.

I was thinking that I'd like to combine Pink Friday with another untried OPI Nicki Minaj polish, Metallic 4 Life, but I wasn't sure how.  It was late, so I went to bed and waited till Sunday to decide what to do next.  I settled on using scotch tape to add Metallic 4 Life to just a third of each nail, diagonally.  The black base in Metallic 4 Life is not sheer but it's not 100% opaque either, so I decided to put down a coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme first.

After I removed the scotch tape and the black dried, I went in with Metallic 4 Life and just freehanded 2 coats of it over the black areas.  Then I wanted to fill in the empty pink space just a bit, so I stamped the center design from Bundle Monster plate BM07, using Konad Special Polish in black.

A coat of Seche Vite on top, once the stamping was dry, and I was good to go.

  1. For a manicure that wasn't planned this is pretty darn amazing. I love the colour combination.
