NOTD - OPI Metallic 4 Life

The new Nicki Minaj and OPI collaboration is pretty special! My favourites were Fly, Pink Friday and Metallic 4 Life. Metallic 4 Life is the one I am showing you today and soon I will have my paws on the other two!

This is a black jelly base filled with tiny silver glitter squares and bigger silver glitter hexagons. Gorgeous!

Application was pretty smooth, 3 coats for full coverage and I had to run my finger along the edge of my nail to smooth the glitter away.

Even with the varying sizes of glitter, and with larger bits notorious for needing placing with a pin, this didn't need it. The particles spread nice and evenly.
It lasted 6 days with no chipping or tip wear (with a topcoat) which is impressive!

As with most glitter polish reviews I do on here I like to do a blurry shot, this shows the mass of particles in a different light.

Removal was a nightmare total pain! Even using the tin foil method oh my, took 2 lots of foiling and I had to kind of scrape the nail with the wet cotton wool, madness!

Available from Lena White and Amazon and good department stores


  1. Waiting on delivery of Fly now, that caught my eye first. Also got Pink Friday and the Shatter, definitely don't like the shatter and not sure on Pink Friday but shall try it before I make up my mind!
