As promised, this is the second part of my "OPI Alice In Wonderland Collection" mini swatch series (pt. 1, i.e. Mad As A Hatter can be found here) and is, naturally, none other than "Absolutely Alice"!
Can you tell I 'm developing a thing for glitter lately? :)
"Absolutely Alice" is the most gorgeous blue glitter in a bottle. The base, just like "Mad As A Hatter" is clear, so the effect is all thanks to the beautiful sparkly bits in it: medium blue (think teal blue) and gold (in fewer quantities, but still noticeable) glitter!
The glitter particles are rather small and fine, but thanks to the dense consistency, they completely cover the nail in 2 coats. This is the only difference I could spot between these two glitters of this collection: "Mad As A Hatter" needed a good 3 coats to cover the white tips of my nails, whereas "Absolutely Alice" did the job in two.
Here's a closer photo of my nails, I 'm hoping that there's a slightly better depiction of the gold particles here:
I must admit, I 'm almost mesmerized by this one, I can happily just look at my nails, and that's something I don't usually do! It has a strange soothing effect, despite it being a very reflective glitter! It reminds me of summer, the deep blue of the sea and the sun (and, yes, I do miss it already, can we please fast forward to mid-July?)!
However, despite it being an amazing shade, it does chip rather easily, I saw minor chipping on the first day, so I added a second layer of top coat, hoping it will do the trick (I have a feeling it won't). Win some, lose some I suppose!
And that concludes my Alice in Wonderland related blogging! Now, all I have to do is actually go see the movie (sadly my multiplex didn't get this in the 3D version, oh well) and with nails to match!
Which nail polishes did you pick from this collection?
And what did you think of the movie? :)
