OPI Nicki Minaj Nail Art

What nail design could possibly be more apt than leopard print to showcase the awesome colours of the OPI Nicki Minaj collection?!

Someone in the office misspelt Minaj as ‘Minage’ a couple of weeks ago.. and since then we’ve been calling Nicki something else!

I’m sure you’re all familiar enough with the collection now to recognise which colours I’ve used where – this collection has been all over the blogosphere and frankly I’m quite late to the party with this post. Just in case, though – I used Did It On ‘Em (amazing colour) as the base colour on most nails, with Pink Friday for a few accent nails – the thumb and ring fingers on my left hand, and index and pinky fingers on my right. The dots were made with the opposite colours, and I did the outlines with Fly and just a dotting tool.

I kept this manicure on for possibly the longest I’ve EVER kept one on. A week and four days! I KNOW! In all that time, I experienced no chips and only minor tipwear. These photos were taken on the 9th day of wear, believe it or not. Impressive, right? Although I put this down to no longer doing waitressing, I think, as opposed to the polishes.

Did you pick up any colours from the Nicki Minge Minaj collection? Which ones are you loving or loathing? I’ve also got Metallic 4 Life and Save Me which I’m yet to try out!

      Thank you :) Did it on ‘em and Fly are my favourites I think, although I haven’t tried Metallic 4 Life or Save Me yet!

    I can’t believe that’s the 9th day of wear! I wish I could keep my nails looking so perfect! x

      I know, I was absolutely amazed, I reckon it could have lasted another week or so on top!

    Love it!
    You made my day, my yellow base coat was chipping so instead of starting all over again I decided to give this a go.
    Perfect way to use the mini nicki collection

    Can’t wait to see what the girls at work say tomorrow :)

      That’s so great! I’m sure they’ll love it – I work with a bunch of guys and they all thought it was awesome, they even asked if they were nail wraps! Haha
