NOTD - OPI Mariah Carey - The Look TrioSunday, February 28, 2016
Today I have a NOTD post for you, as always with my NOTD posts I'll explain how I achieved the look and also give you a mini review of the polishes used and let you know how they applied and wore etc.
Today's nail of the day look was created using the OPI Mariah Carey - The Look Trio which was part of the OPI Christmas collection in 2013, I received the gift set for Christmas after saying I wanted a nice gold glitter polish my partner Simon chose the set for me and I think he did a good job.
The set contains 3 polishes -
✿ My Favourite Ornament - A Gold Glitter polish.
✿ Visions Of Love - A Deep Burgundy polish.
✿ I Snow You Love Me - A Clear polish with large silver glitter pieces.
Left - Visions Of Love - Right - My Favourite Ornament
I used the shades Visions Of Love and My Favourite Ornament, I painted all my nails except my ring fingers with Visions Of Love and painted my ring fingers with My Favourite Ornament as an accent nail. I used my Orly Glosser top coat as my top coat.
I used two coats of Visions of Love and four coats of My Favourite Ornament, I could have used three coats to achieve the opaque gold glitter look on my ring fingers but I used an extra coat just to make sure it was super opaque, but you could use three. You can also use the polish as a glitter top coat by using just one coat.
I really liked both the OPI polishes, they applied well and with ease and dried within an average time and didn't take too long to dry in between coats. The look lasted for 5 days before I chipped one of my glittery accent nails but I didn't think that was too bad as glitter polish does usually chip on me faster than non glitter polish. I liked the shine I got from the Orly glosser top coat too and really liked the finished look, I got a lot of compliments on my nails with some people thinking I'd had a salon manicure.
If you would like to purchase the polishes I used to create this look, you can find the OPI Mariah Carey The Look Trio on Amazon HERE for £11.95 plus 0.95p delivery which is a brilliant price for three OPI polishes as they usually retail for over £10.00 each. You can find the Orly Glosser top coat on the Nail Polish Direct website HERE for £13.80 including delivery.
