Nicole By OPI A Million Sparkles

I realized the other day that it'd been a while since I wore something sparkly on my nails, so I decided to rectify that with the total glitter explosion that is Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles. There is a lot going on in this shade. It's complex yet somehow totally cohesive. The base is clear but then you've got two types of round glitter (small blue and larger gold) and two types of bar glitter (small blue and larger holographic pink). I know the whole "party in a bottle" is a Deborah Lippmann thing, but I'd easily apply it to this polish as well. It looks like a crazy confetti blowout on your nails!






Despite how many different types of glitter are in this polish, I found opacity to be a bit of a struggle with this at first. Then I remembered that all of my NOPI holiday glitters needed a good shake before I used them and that seemed to do the trick for A Million Sparkles as well. In the end, I used three coats here. I wore A Million Sparkles alone but you could easily layer it instead and come up with some crazy combinations to add to the fun of this polish.


This is a very unique, very pretty glitter. I can't think of another one like it and got a lot of compliments on it yesterday. If you're gaga for glitter like me, this is an excellent addition to your sparkle hoarde. Fans of polishes like China Glaze Marry A Millionaire and OPI Save Me will feel right at home with A Million Sparkles. I've come around to bar glitter in a big way. I used to think it looked really weird, like pine needles or even hair on your nails. But after I gave it a try, now I can't get enough of the stuff!

    1. I definitely considered layering it but decided to try it alone first. I look forward to finding some fun combos in the future though!
