Remember this promo picture of Nicole by OPI Bring On The Tinsel from the Holiday Magic Winter 2010 Collection? Well, I received this color in the mail, and it's not a brown gold glitter. Surprise!
Quite different, eh? I think of tinsel being a goldish brown with some hint of green and red (thanks Mom), but this is more of a blue tinted silver. It's actually made up of tiny red, blue, green, silver and gold glitter in a clear base.
Here's a simple coat test - and oh yes, it was super hard to remove (being a glitter and all), but the formula was fine - no problem there.
If worn alone, I'd go with 3 coats but if worn with a base color underneath, 2 coats will do.
I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail Base and a top coat of OPI Top Coat. SUN!
You can really see the blue and green pushing through.
Oh Tinsel - I do love you. Maybe this year I'll show y'all my awesome (and CHEAP) way to make a table top Christmas tree using wire hangers, tinsel, and Christmas lights ^_^.
