OPI Nicki Minaj: Save Me
Although there are some great colours in the collection, I only picked up Save Me, a clear base with silver micro-glitter and silver and blue holographic bar glitters.
Bar glitters can be a little hard to work with in terms of placement and they and tend to drag if you don't allow each coat to dry properly. Thankfully drying time between coats was quite short with Save Me, so I didn't have too many problems with application. You will need a thick top coat though, since the polish does dry gritty and rough.
Save Me would make an interesting top coat over some darker colours, but three coats of it make a good standalone polish. The bar glitters give it a surprising 3D effect and it's quite striking on the nails... very blingy and reminiscent of fireworks!
