Wheel M1: More Glitter

This week's Nail Wheel Wednesday features glitters from Nicole by OPI plus some miscellaneous brands to fill out the wheel. I was surprised I had as many Nicoles as I do, since for a long time I wouldn't buy them because of the bottle shape; something about its asymmetry is just not appealing to my eye. But then I got one as an extra in a swap and found I liked the polish inside the bottle and as so often happens, once I had one from the brand in my stash, I started getting more to keep that bottle company

I am going to have to do some glitter skittles manis just to get more of these beauties out into the world more often. Thank goodness I work at a company that doesn't care what I wear as long as I show up and do my job.

  5. I wonder if NOPI knows that their bottle is such a turn off? It's crazy because they make some of the prettiest colours. Maybe it doesn't matter. I have a bunch of NOPIs because I couldn't resist the polish inside. But seriously that bottle is the worst!

  6. Nicole has really pretty glitter polish, especially the purple star glitters. like what Rikki said, they should really change the bottle design.
