OPI Absolutely Alice



When I first heard about the OPI Alice in Wonderland collection from British Beauty Blogger I knew I was going to be buying this shade. I love glitters, and the fact that this was going to be an intense blue made it more desirable.

Here's 3 coats of Absolutely Alice, and 1 coat Seche Vite. The colour is basically blue + silver glitter in a clear base.



(pardon the crappy cuticles. Good thing I don't run a nailpolish blog!)



Closeup of the colour opacity with 3 coats - gorgeous right? I should note though that the colour is not as blue as it appears in the pictures. It leans a but more turquoise than the pictures suggest.



Glitters are awesome because they dry so quickly. I'm so tempted to get rid of my regular creme polishes. They take too long to dry, and chip more easily compared with most glitters. The only drawback to glitters is that they are harder to remove.

I did more spring cleaning and updated my blog sale with more items, so please take a look! :)

I'm wearing it on my toes right now! It's a gorgeous colour! But I just know that removing it will be a huge hassle...

this color is awesome :) and i also don't have patience to let the creme formulas dry, I always tend to mess them up before they are completely dried! so annoying :(

Seriously, every time I see Alice, I love it a little more. It's such a stunner!

Though I really like this colour, I didn't pick this one up. I really don't get too many glitters, they're a nightmare to remove!

PS, lovely meeting you today, even though we didn't get much of a chance to talk! :)

Hi Steffi,

I hope you see this reply since it is a old post. Anyway you can find new OPI colours from Trade Secrets (should be in just about every mall).

Other nail places have OPI too but Trade Secrets seems to be the best place for the latest collections.
