OPI Pink Friday, Super Bass Shatter and Save Me

Hey guys!  Today I have some more of the Nicki Minaj for OPI collection to show you.  I apologize in advance for the chips, but a bit of dish-washing and cooking this morning was enough to leave me with a few chips.  For this mani I used two coats of Pink Friday as a base.  Then for an accent nail I used one coat of Save Me topped with Super Bass Shatter.  I like all the polishes in this mani, but I don't really care for the accent nail combined with Pink Friday.

2 coats Pink Friday, Save Me and Super Bass Shatter Accent Nail + Poshe topcoat, artificial light

Pink Friday is pastel creme version of a bubble gum pink.  I really like it.  It's 4 Free and doesn't have the patchiness issues that most pastel polishes have.  The formula is pretty spot on and just as smooth as Fly was.  I can't really tell you much about Save Me yet, but it is a clear top coat with holographic shimmer and also has a lot of holographic bar glitter.  The jelly dries matte and leaves the glitter very rough, but nothing a good topcoat can't fix.  As for Super Bass Shatter, it is a maroon shatter pretty similar in formula to the other OPI shatters.  It's a bit like the blue and turquoise shatters and has a fine matching shimmer mixed into it.  I can't wait to try it with a base that contrasts a bit more loudly!  A few final notes - so far the collection seems chip-prone.  My Electric Beat mani didn't chip for at least 4+ days.  Fly and Pink Friday didn't make it a full 24 hours, even with careful tip-wrapping.  I have polish ADD and like an excuse to switch up my nails, but I know some normal people like to keep their manis in tact for a few days!  Also, Fly left some pretty intense stains even with a reliable base coat.  I still love it though!


  1. I used Fly yesterday and didn't get any staining. I used two coats of basecoat though, so maybe that's why. I used Nail Envy matte as my basecoat, so maybe that's why, but I did notice that when I was removing the polish my fingertips were stained blue for a little bit but it came off within a couple of hours, so it does seem like it is prone to staining.

  2. love it, the purpley shatter looks great with the pink!:]

  3. I love Pink Friday, it is so fun!! The Superbass shatter is awesome too!

  4. ~Janelle~ I realized that I only got staining on the accent nail that I topped with Lacquistry's polish. I'm thinking it was some weird reaction. I HATE finger stains because I am so impatient.

    ~Sarah and Lynn~ Superbass is really pretty! I am so torn over whether I am tired of shatters. Now that they are finally widely available in every color we could want I find that I don't want them in much.
    Thanks for reading! I love getting comments :)
