First swatch!!! OPI's Metallic 4 Life

*Throws confetti* Huzzah! So this is my first real review!!!! Yay!  So first up I have OPI's Metallic For life.  It's from the Nicki Minaj collection.  Now while I'm not a huge fan of her music I do go out of my way to learn her songs just so I can do them at Karaoke.  Out of the whole collection this was the only one I wanted (I ended up getting it as a Christmas gift).

Metallic 4 Life is a bunch of hex glitter and tiny square glitter in a black base.  Now I know I'm not a fan of glitter but this one was pretty bad ass once I got it on.

Application was a little tricky.  The formula was goopy, but I was expecting that. The first coat was really sheer and it took me three-ish coats till I stopped caring if it was opaque.  And I say three-ish because even after three coats I still had some bald patches that I fixed.

Now I don't know of or have anything like this so I'm glad I have it.  But the application was a pain so it's not something that I would just wear on a normal day.  If you're a fan of glitter and dark colours I would suggest you get it.  I know some people have said that you can get the same effect with just a plain black base and glitter on top, but I don't think so.  There's something unique and different about it because the glitter is already in the base.  And in my opinion it gives it a look you otherwise wouldn't get by putting glitter on top of a plain base.

This is for sure Valkyrie worthy. Epic stuff.
