The Bar Exam...

It's Pink Wednesday and I'm showing you some pink...well sorta.  Today I want to revisit some of the OPI Nicki Minaj cremes and show you the amazing OPI Save Me.  So, to start this mani I used two coats of OPI Did It On 'EmI think this shade would look great on all skin tones.  I found though, when I tried to photograph my hand holding the Did It On 'Em bottle the yellow tones from the bottle combined with the full nail color reflected off my skin in a way that wasn't flattering.

I used a nail art brush to create three diagonal lines with OPI Pink Friday.  I thought stripes would mimic the bar glitter found in Save Me nicely.  Let me tell you, I love bar glitter!  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, that just means more for me...just kidding.  Anyway, OPI Save Me is made up of fine sliver glitter and a rainbow of bar glitter.  Application is super easy for being a bar glitter and it builds up nicely.  I used two super thin coats and with normal coats I think I could have reached perfect opacity in three coats.  What do you think about bar glitter?

  9. @Colorsplashnails: I find the trick to bar glitter is thinner coats and I always make sure there aren't any bars hanging off the edge of my nail :)
