I always hack into my boyfriend's Ebay account and put girly things on his "Watch List", usually nail related items. Haha. So this year for Christmas some of which he got me was all of the things I had on the list. Nail wheels! OPI's I Get A Kick Out Of Gold! And these pretty polishes from Nabi: They look gorgeous, right? I've never used Nabi polishes before but I've seen some on Nihrida's blog so I thought they might be worthy of my time...? I decided to use the pink (actually called "Purple Big Glitter") over OPI's It Color.
This is what I got after 1 coat of the Nabi glitter...
Okay, so where is all of the glitter?! Still in the bottle, I guess. I gave it another coat.
Wow. That is not much better. Then, a 3rd coat....
I'm really NOT impressed. The glitter is pretty, BUT YOU CAN'T GET IT ON THE NAIL! The bottle looks packed with glitter, so why do I only get a glob of clear when I pull the brush out of the polish?? I'm sincerely upset :( ... [Above] Now seriously, who said that?! "The best nail polish I've ever used"? What a joke. Other reasons I'm disappointed in these polishes: They smell GROSS! When I open the bottle I feel like I just stepped into an auto body shop. It's an awful paint smell. Also, it has a thick, sticky consistency. Yuck! I feel like I have super glue all over my nails! Have you ever tried super glueing your nail back together after it broke? Well, it gets all over. It runs all over your nail and floods your cuticle. That is basically what this polish did to me. I'm taking it all off now!
[Below] Deniz, aka Trincess (from Emerald Sparkled blog) asked how my previous manicure would look if I applied the silver to the tips of my nails. Not bad! Here you go :)
I think the glitter is pretty but too bad it takes so long to get some on the nail. :) I love love love love love your OPI Purple With A Purpose & Silver Stripe Rite all the way around. AWESOME. How did you apply it so perfect? Susie
The bottles look so promising, sad to see and hear that they don't transfer well... I'm sure you'll find a good use for them =) Aww, thank you for doing the tips, to me they look interesting, and in a very good way! Definitely attention catching =)
Oh, I did laugh at your "Who said that comment". Dear me, very disappointing polish. What a shame, especially when you think it's going to be fantastic. I feel sorry for your BF after he did such a nice deed! They like to think that what they give you is wonderful. Frustrating when it isn't :(
Nihrida- If I must fish for the glitter, I think I will need a net instead of a pole! The brush really does not want to cooperate!
Contests and Such- I don't recommend these at all!
Susies1955- I used a Stripe Rite polish and painted very slowly and meticulously! It was super hard to paint my right hand nails though... since I'm right-handed!
MeganChair- Thanks so much!
(Kirsten)- Thanks! I don't know what I was thinking when I picked out yellow IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER! Haha. I does look better with the glitter on it though :)
Trincess- Thanks! I figured I might as well give it a try! It was only one extra stripe! :) It definitely looked better than I had imagined it would!!
Stephanie- Thank you :) I think it might look better in the pictures than it did in real-life... or maybe I'm just not used to wearing yellow and that's why I didn't care for it.
Diva's Polish- Haha... yah, poor guy :) I'm not going to tell him that they weren't very good. But he got me lots of other good things I can be excited about!
Lucy- Thank you! I don't know how I'm ever going to get any of that glitter out...? Someone needs to invent some sort of nail polish strainer so, in cases like this, we can drain out all of the darn clear polish!
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
