OPI Nicki Minaj Limited Edition Collection: Swatches and Review

Happy Friday Ya'll :)

Today I have a seriously fun and electrifying collection brought to you by OPI and Nicki Minaj!

Let's get this party started....

"Did It On 'Em"
 2 coats, no top coat

Limey green cream...gorgeous! I love these type of "shrek-like" colors on my hands.  I had no streaking issues with this color,like most yellow/light greens,  it went on very easily and smoothly.

"Did It On 'Em" topped with 1 coat of "Super Bass Shatter". I added 1 coat of top coat, because the shatters tend to dry a bit "matte", so top coat is needed to give it that SHINE!

Oh yeah baby! Now we're coking with OIL!!!! Love this combo!!! "Super Bass Shatter" has a shimmer to it, almost glitter like, without all the lumps and bumps! Very nice over cremes!

 2 coats, no top coat

It's a you know what that means..I LOVE IT!!!!!!  This aqua cream was smooth and easy to apply, opaque in 2 coats, no issues.

"Fly" topped with 1 coat of "Super Bass Shatter" with top coat.

Look at that! Seriously, such a simple step and this polish just POPPED!!! :)

"Metallic 4 Life"
3 coats, no top coat

The base in this is a bit jelly like. Black jelly cream with silver glitter. 3 coats was NEEDED for me, 2 coats left bald spots and was not opaque. But if you did a base coat of any black cream, you would not need 2 coats. this would be awesome! I really like this polish! So fun and easy!

"Metallic 4 Life" topped with 1 coat of "Super Bass Shatter" with top coat .

I was super, super hesitant to top this off with the shatter. I just was not convinced it was necessary...and I was right..LOL! You definitely CAN do this manicure, but M4L is so pretty on its own, it does not need the shatter...just sayin!

"Pink Friday"
2 coats, no top coat

I am not a baby pink girl, but this has some possibilities.  With it being smooth and opaque in 2 coats, you can't beat it! But wait.....

"Pink Friday" topped with 1 coat of "Super Bass Shatter" with top coat.

Oh yeah, I could rock this! Woo Hoo..."Super Bass" to the rescue!

"Save me"
3 coats, no top coat

Yes bar glitter is back baby! and although it does remind me of hair and shag carpeting, it's different and cool, and for that I love it! Silver glitter and holographic baby blue and pink bar glitter is a bit difficult to apply, 3 coats is necessary for opacity.  Next time I rock this I'll apply a silver base coat, then rock the glitter!

"Save me" topped with 1 coat of "Super Bass Shatter" with top coat.

Can you say funky fabulous! Love it with the Shatter on top! Nice, very nice!

Overall when I see this collection, I feel the need to rock each color on a different finger, in fact that is the plan for this weekend!

My favorites are "Super Bass Shatter", "Save Me", "Fly" and Metallic 4 Life".  Although the creams are possibly dupable,  the glitters  and shatter stand out to me enough that they are a necessary component in any girls collection.

I really want to pick up some colors from this collection. I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need all of them but they're all so pretty and Super Bass looks amazing on just about everything!
