Polish of the Week: OPI Absolutely Alice

Absolutely Alice, 3 coats, with flash

I thought I'd start the post right off with a gorgeous picture. OPI Absolutely Alice is blue and gold glitter suspended in a clear base. However, there is SO much blue glitter, it almost appears to be a blue base once you get a few coats on the nail. This polish is just gorgeous. I would venture to say that this is the best polish of 2010 thus far. I guess if you hate blue polish or glitter polish, this would not agree with you, but I LOVE glitter and I LOVE blue, so there you have it.

One caveat- Shown is 3 coats. 3 very thick coats. I was very excited to put this polish on and take pictures for the blog, so I didn't want to take the time to do thin coats. However, one day later, I have massive chipping and two nails have completely lifted off and vanished. So, my advice to you- do about five THIN coats. You will be much happier than I am right now LOL.

You know I had to mattify it! I love it mattified because the gold flecks really stand out.

Now if we could have a moment of silence for EK's brand new bottle of Absolutely Alice. A stupid textbook pushed AA off of EK's desk, throwing it to the floor to meet it's untimely death. Obviously, this polish will have to be replaced ASAP.

So my question to you guys is: do you know of a polish that is this exact shade of blue, but in a different finish (i.e. shimmer, metallic, maybe even creme)? If so, let me know, because I am crazy about this color blue!!!

OPI Absolutely Alice is available in an Ulta store near you. Knockout Cosmetics Flatte Top is available at Knockout Cosmetics.

Kate said...

love this polish, but i had the HARDEST time removing it. It took longer than any polish I've ever worn. Any tips on take it off?

Never Enough Nails said...

Kate- I actually do have a fabulous glitter removal tip from another nail blogger, Lacquer Laine. I'm going to post about it in just a few minutes!!

I'm not really a glitter gal but AA is looking better and better...

It's pretty simmilar to the European OPI Reflecting Pool but if I remember correctly RP isn't a glitter. I'm not sure though.

Kirsten- what I love about AA is that it's not just a glitter, it's also a really beautiful color!
Thanks for the tip about Reflecting Pool, I'll check out swatches of that!!
