OPI OZ The Great And Powerful: Lights Of Emerald City

Ah I'm so excited about this post! I got my hands on the OPI 2013 collection based on the movie Oz The Great And Powerful. My first pick is Lights of Emerld City, a truly unique glitter top coat with iridescent small square glitter and large white square glitter.

The real star of this polish, in my opinion, is the iridescent glitter. Depending on what you layer it over, it can look copper (over purple), gold (over green), and light pink (over blue). I swatched the different combinations on swatch sticks and I used the blue combination as inspiration for a manicure. I fished out the white glitter and layered it to on my accent nail to create an argyle pattern.

 Swatched over dark purple, emerald green (ha!), and sky blue:







There are two more glitters in this collection but I have yet to try them. The creme shades were reminiscent of the Ballet collection. What are your picks? Would you like to see swatches of the other two glitters as well?

Thanks for reading and have a great start to the week!

  2. I love the way you've used this one!

    I've been trying it out myself today and I don't like the way the white glitters lie when they are just 'as they come' on the nail. I think they might be just a bit too big to work properly........ star here - your nails with just the smaller glitters look super and your checkerboard nail is just too cute!

    1. Thanks UKNailRunner! I agree with you, the white pieces just look awkward on the nails haha

  3. I was searching to see if other nail ladies had issues with this polish (almost all of my squares are cut wrong...& not really square!) & just had to follow. What a lovely blog! Hope you'll stop by mine sometime XO

    1. I hear ya! It was so frustrating making a symmetrical pattern with little tabs jutting out and pieces unevenly cut. Glad to see others experienced the same and I'm not alone! Your blog is great, I'm going to wander around reading other posts :D Thanks for the shout out!
