OPI DS Coronation

OPI DS Coronation from the Designer Series is wicked :) I didn't think it would be very holographic, and while it isn't a linear holo it still has a good effect and is noticeable. It has more than just a little scatter to it. It took me 4 coats to get to this opacity, but the formula was very smooth and dried quickly so it was fine. Much like the other DS polishes it lasts very well without chipping. I'm glad I got it :)

China Glaze CG in the City over OPI The Show Must Go On

Above is one coat of China Glaze CG in the City over 2 coats of OPI The Show Must Go On, the CG works great as a top coat. I thought I'd start trying out things to wear for halloween :) The Show Must Go On is a great polish and I've worn it many times, which is special for someone with a lot of nail polish. Though I don't have as many as some of you lucky ones :) It's from last year's OPI Burlesque Collection which is my all time favourite collection so far, and I loved the movie.
Here it is on it's own -

The duochrome is preddy >.< I love it
I tried two coats of the CG and it still looked pretty similar, but it lost the duochrome peeping through so I think one coat is good :)

Zoya Mimi with OPI I Lily Love You

Zoya Mimi is gorgeous :) it reminds me of Sailor Mars. Mimi is from the Zoya Sparkle collection and has to be one of the best from it. It is a bit more warm toned than it shows, it has a near magenta shimmer that runs through it in some lights. It takes 3 coats and dries nicely, but is best to let it dry between coats. Zoya Mimi is what I wanted Orly Out of this World to be :) much brighter, a better shimmer on the nail, and a better formula. I think a coat of OPI I Lily Love You looks great over dark colours, it brings out the colours of the flakes :) It is so hard to remove but I love it!

OPI Absolutely Alice

OPI Absolutely Alice is perfect >.< that is all you need to know. One of my faves :) this is 2 coats without top coat and it dries nicely. I love the gold glitter amongst the blue it looks beautiful :) the colours of Alice's hair and her dress. It was worth paying more for this one. It looks great in person too, a real compliment maker and I would wear it all the time if I wasn't scared of it running out. Snatch it up if you can find it! From the OPI Alice in Wonderland Collection :)
