Christmas Nail Polish – OPI Bring on the Bling!

Christmas nail polish time! It’s the time of year for sparkle and glitter. I usually shy away from glitter my there’s no reason why my nails can’t get in on the action.

OPI Bring on the Bling!

I applied three layers of polish for this picture. One layer wasn’t enough, it looked a little patchy. Two coats was fine but I decided to maximise the glitterage (I need to stop making up words!).

Glittery polishes are usually hard to apply but not this one. It wasn’t too tacky or too sheer, at the risk of sounding like Goldilocks – it’s just right. It also dries rapidly which was both surprising and fantastic.

After two or three coats you get an opaque finish but you could also apply one coat over another polish to make a plain nail varnish more festive.

The downside to any glitter based nail polish is the removal. My usual nail wipes didn’t even make a dint in this polish, even I left it on for a few minutes. I had to use L’Ongex’s acetone based nail varnish remover to get it off.

Bring on the festivities!

What do you think of glittery nails?
