I’m a complete sucker for anything pink, so when it is also sparkly and a cosmetic item I’m powerless to resist it! That’s why I was instantly attracted to the OPI Nail Polish in I Lily Love You – a stunning pink glitter polish, taken from the Summer Collection 2011.
As the glitter polish is more glitter than pink polish, I thought it would be best to start with a pink base coat. I wanted to keep it all OPI, but unfortunately I don’t own a pure pink OPI polish. So I opted for Barry M’s Shocking Pink for the base:
I had previously tried I Lily Love You on its own on my sister’s nails; although it looked absolutely gorgeous, I had to put a shade underneath to give it some ‘oomph’. I just loved the effect once the two were put together:
Isn’t it just the most fun nail look ever?! I loved that the polish felt solid – I Lily Love You acted as a top coat which prevented any chipping. Most nail looks chip on me after the shortest time (I am super clumsy!) but after a good 3/4 days, my nails still look awesome. When I first painted my nails, I had compliments from my mum, sister and even Tiz!
I purchased this OPI polish from the eBay shop I mentioned in my last review: ‘hammer-it-style’ – they’re a great eBay shop with very quick delivery times. I would highly recommend them!
I’m desperate to try some more OPI glitter polishes, to please send your recommendations my way!
