Mani Monday: Metallic 4 Life
Happy Manicure Monday! I hope that you had a great weekend. My Monday manicure is from Nicki Minaj's OPI collection. It is Metallic 4 Life. Metallic 4 Life is a black polish with sliver glitter right in it. It makes it very easy to create a fun, sparkly look using only one bottle of lacquer.
This polish went on a bit streaky at first, and was almost a grayish-black on the first coat. The second coat is needed and is what creates the darker look. If I am being honest, I don't really love this polish on me. I think I would like it for a Halloween look, but not so much for an everyday polish. It looks a little bit odd on me. I also feel that since Nicki Minaj's collection is so bright and fun, the dark color, for me, is a bit of a let down. I am sure that it will be a big hit for many people, but this mom just isn't loving it. I have one more, very vibrant color to swatch from this collection. I am excited about that one and will post it later this week.
Thanks so much for reading! Have a wonderful day.
