Try It On Tuesday: Follow Me On Glitter by Nicole by O.P.I.
Hello all! It’s time for another Try It On Tuesday!
This week I wanted something sparkly, so I reached in my helmer and pulled out Nicole by O.P.I.’s Follow Me On Glitter. My mom gave this to me a few months ago, and while I was excited to get it- it got thrown into the Helmer and forgotten about, like so many of my beautiful colors.
This shade is part of their Kardashian collection, and you can still find it in most stores. You’ll find it just about anywhere that sells Nicole by O.P.I. (NOPI)- Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens. I think this was supposed to be the ‘more afforadable’ drugstore version of O.P.I… I don’t know about ya’ll, but it’s only ever 50 cents less than what I can get O.P.I. for. So I guess it’s really just a way to get O.P.I. at a drugstore… even though they aren’t the same colors. Whatever.
ANYWAYS… Follow Me On Glitter is a black and silver fine glitter base, filled with the occasional larger multi colored glitter. The colored glitter is almost completely drowned out by the black and silver- so really it just looks like a finer version of O.P.I.’s Metallic for Life (my original Try it On Tuesday pick for last week). I really wish the colored glitter was a bit more visible! It’s still a very pretty color, though.
All of the pictures were 2 coats of Follow Me on Glitter with 1 coat of Poshe Quick Dry Top Coat. This was *almost* a 1 coat polish- the second coat evened out a few lighter spots and gave the color a bit more opacity. But that’s impressive for a glitter!
This went on smoothly and without too many issues- I didn’t have to do any cleanup (though things weren’t *perfect*, I thought it was good enough). For those that aren’t familiar, NOPI uses those huge fat brushes that people either love or hate. I actually like them when the color is a ‘normal’ color- but with this thick glitter, it wasn’t the easiest to work with. I have tiny nails (just in general size, length is irrelevant)- the really thicker brushes can give me some trouble with my pinky finger.
On a slightly unrelated note, my nails are starting to grow a little! I’m not holding my breath yet, because the damaged areas still haven’t grown out- so my new ‘growth’ is the remainder of the damaged sections- but so far they’re holding up ok. I’ve been loading my nails down with Seche Vite Recondition, which I got for free at Sally Beauty Supply. So far it’s done wonders for my nail strength compared to the large amount of other things I’ve used. I don’t think I’ll be able to grow them very long until all the damage is gone, but this is a nice start- it’s the longest I’ve had them in 4 months!
