A few weeks ago I did an experiment with a competition. It was a resounding success and I was so happy to be able to share the gorgeous China Glaze Prismatic collection with a lucky reader. One of the ways to enter was to answer a question as I want to really know what your #1 favourite polish was. Again and again, I Lily Love You from OPI came up so I just had to track it down. I'm so glad I did as it's the prettiest pink based, square and shredded iridescent glitter I think I've ever seen!
When I swatch a glitter like this - colour tinted base - I like to pick a base colour as there's no point me trying to layer 25 layers to get this to be opaque. I think I found a pretty good match with Essence Ultimate Pink, a sweet bubblegum creme. I'm so excited about this actually as mini Essence polishes just started showing up in Shopper's Drug Mart! So cheap too at $1.69 a bottle, can't go wrong with more brands to choose from. Anyway, Ultimate Pink is a really great pink and I only needed two coats to get good coverage. You could almost get away with one. The pink is sweet and bright too, always a plus.
Onto the main event, I Lily Love You. I love how much glitter is packed into this, and in all different shapes and sizes too. Check out the close-ups, I see at least three different sizes and shapes of iridescent glitter. Coverage was decent, these pictures are two coats.
The Verdict: Just like Last Friday Night, another great, different glitter from OPI. I hope they keep this up, they're so fun to play with. I can't remember where I got this but it was for only $5 on a site out there. Not too bad at all.
