OPI Nikki Minaj Collection Swatches and Review

Today I have the OPI Nikki Minaj Collection to share with you. I was excited to hear about the collection since I'm a Nikki Minaj fan. She has a unique fashion style that was captured in many of the polishes.

Pink Friday - soft Barbie or should I say Nikki pink. I wasn't sure how I would feel about this one because I have so many pinks but it's really pretty on. I needed two coats to make it opaque.

Did It On 'Em. Lime green creme. The formula was a lot thinner than Pink Friday and I needed 3 coats to make it opaque.

Fly. Blue creme with a hint of green. I really love this one. The color reminds me of Nikki Minaj's blue eye shadow that she wears often. I used two coats.

Metallic 4 Life. Silver hex glitter (small, medium and large) in a black jelly base. The silver really pops against the black. I used 2 coats.

Super Bass. Purple shatter with pink shimmer throughout that my camera didn't capture. It crackled quite well using one medium coat. Like most crackles it dried matte but glossed with a top coat.

Save Me
- A little party in a bottle. I really like this combo of silver, gold and teal glitter. I wasn't sure if it would contrast well with the blue/teal but it's really beautiful.

Save Me over Super Bass - I tried a little glitter over shatter for fun.

And there you have it! I think this collection is a fun reflection of Nikki Minaj's unique fashion sense. My favorites from the collection are Save Me, Fly and Metallic 4 Life. The collection is currently available at ULTA, JcPenney's and other fine retailers that carry OPI.
