OPI Nicki Minaj Swatches

Hi everyone! I've had these swatches for quite a while now, but I finally have the opportunity to show them! OPI Nicki Minaj collection has big bursts of color in store for us, paying homage to Nicki Minaj's flamboyant personality. All the swatches below are three coats, with the exception of the glitter topcoats which are 1-2 coats.


Did it On 'Em





Did it On 'Em is a bright yellow green, similar to Illamasqua's Radium which is one of my most favorite chartreuse nail lacquers. This is also similar to OPI Who the Shrek R U, but this is a little bit more yellow.


Save Me over Did it On 'Em



Save Me is a clear base with holographic bar glitter (yes, those hairy things) and smaller silver glitter. Hairy scary; not too much of a bar glitter fan, but it looks fun.


Fly



Fly is bright teal creme. Not much more to say about it; more of a brighter teal. Applied easily and didn't give me much of a hard time.


Metallic 4 Life over Fly



Metallic 4 Life has bigger silver hex glitter and smaller silver glitter in a black base. The base is quite dark as it totally obscured Fly in the swatches above.


Pink Friday



Pink Friday is a light cotton candy pink creme. I think this is a little bit too cool for my skintone.


Super Bass Shatter over Pink Friday



Super Bass Shatter is a shimmery wine/deep magenta shatter. I am not a fan of this over Pink Friday, but I will swatch it with other colors to see which ones complement this shade.

All in all, the shades are okay but not particularly exciting. They are also not terribly unique. I am liking Fly and Did it On 'Em, but even the glitter polishes did not really pique my interest. Formula is okay though, very easy to apply and although it did streak on the first coat, the second one evened things out considerably. Typical OPI formula with good staying power. I am not just that wowed by the choice of shades in this collection.
