Ultimate Bling Factor

When the Nicki Minaj for OPI collection came out, the polish that immediately called out to me was Save Me. I adore my OPI glitter polishes and I hoped this one would be no exception. Looking at some swatches online, at first I was afraid it would look a little hairy due to the thin lines of glitter. On the nail, the strands of glitter are more prismatic than anything, and the polish is positively dazzling in sunlight. Save Me is a concoction of whitish silver microglitter and yellow and blue bar glitter that flashes holographic, making the nails "come alive". The formula is on the thick side, especially with the second and third coat. Notably, it dries to a much scratchier and rougher surface than other OPI glitter polishes I own. However, drying time was surprisingly quick. The occasional strand glitter will poke out from the surface of the nail and it's hard to resist the temptation to peel it off. I love the multilayered effect of this polish and how the glitter flashes every colour of the rainbow against the light.

  2. Wow, when I was scrolling through the post, I didn't know what I was expecting, but wow, your nails look so cool! I like how they added the small glitter to fill in the nail along with the long thin glitter! I might have to go buy this one.

  9. This is a really unusual, pretty polish. Like a disco mermaid! Do you find that it looks better with a coloured base underneath it? Oh and I totally get what you mean when you describe the temptation to peel stray glitter bits off your nails. I have the same problem with some of my glitter polishes!

    1. I'm not sure about a coloured base, I'm thinking black would probably have a really nice effect. This one is dense enough that it essentially also has its own base colour with one coat. With a single layer the silver glitter is really sparkly and pretty :)

  25. This polish looks gorgeous! hahaha I can totally relate to the peeling off the little strands right now. I recently put on the OPI's Marry A Millionaire and it has similar small little glitter hairs...I think i peeled off most of them, or I tried to pressed them back down XD
