OPI Show It and Glow It! NOTD

I'm feeling very unmotivated at the moment so it’s just a simple NOTD from me today. I'm just over everything at the moment so I thought some glitter would help lift my mood! I decided to use OPI Show It and Glow It! from the Burlesque collection for a full manicure. I used it in my NYE manicure for one nail but it's so gorgeous it definitely deserves a full mani!

I LOVE glitter and I’m sure a lot of you do too! OPI outdid themselves with these glitters I think – they are so beautiful and are soooooo glittery. Show It and Glow It! is a gorgeous fuchsia glitter packed with lots of different coloured glitters.


I was hoping to get away with fewer coats of Show It and Glow It! by using 1 coat of Misa High Waist Hue as a natural base but I still ended up using 3 coats for full coverage which is pictured. The glitter dries very quickly but to a slightly rough finish so I topped it with a coat of Poshe topcoat. The wear wasn't very good for me - it started to chip by day 2.


The below close up pic isn’t the best but it was the best macro shot I had of this polish. I took this quick pic when I did my NYE mani and it just shows the different coloured glitters so well!
