Nicki Minaj OPI Polish

I didn't think that it was possible to love nail polish any more than I already do, as I have become a little bit of obsessed...well, more like addicted, especially since OPI entered my life. That was until I realised that OPI were launching a range by Nicki Minaj. 

I waited quite patiently until 2012, and decided to order a set of minis from eBay just after the launch and they finally arrived this week! My set includes very cute mini versions of Did It On 'Em (lime green) Pink Friday (bubblegum pink), Save Me (glitter and holographic streamers) and Fly (turquoise) and I am thrilled to show you the results with the help of my 7 year old daughter and 4 year old son, who just had to get in on the action, not because he is a girly boy but because he is obsessed with the colour green and loves the lime shade.

I started with the usual OPI From Start To Finish Base Coat and Top Coat in one and then painted my daughter's nails in the three bright colours. I added two coats for depth and then added a coat of Save Me on top. If I was doing a manicure on myself then I would add a top coat as well, however I didn't feel that this was necessary on this occasion.

I love all of the colours and the pictures really don't do them justice. I can't tell you how amazing the glittery streamer effect looks and I will definitely need to buy a standard sized bottle of this as it isn't going to last 5 minutes.

I would really like to know what everyone thinks, and as usual this means positive and negative feedback. I would also love to know if anyone has this polish.

P.s You may notice that I have had to do an update on this post, as my OPI Nicki Minaj minis box has a typo - I thought that Save Me was actually Metallic 4 Life. Either someone has made a typo on the box, or the wrong mini bottle was put in. Has anyone else had the same problem? I don't really mind as I have a polish almost exactly the same as Metallic 4 Life and I prefer Save Me a million times more anyway.


  1. I have the mini set too! My favorite color was Pink Friday & my boyfriend bought me the regular sized bottle & gave it to me today as an early Valentine's Day present lol.. I love all of the colors from the collection except for Did It On Em.. I have the OPI Shrek Collection & it almost looks exactly like Who the Shrek Are You? which I also wasn't a big fan of.. I did a swatch of both of them on my blog if you want to see.. You're kids are absolutely adorable!

  2. Aah, what a sweetie. I love Pink Friday too...reminds me of candyfloss (cotton candy) which I love, and pastel colours are going to be big in Spring.

  3. Very cute! Welcome to my blog
