OPI Absolutely Alice & Swimsuit... Nailed it!

I had a few posts drafted up just in case my internet wouldn't be up as quickly as I had hoped (which is won't be :( ). So this is one of them. ;)
I wanted to do something quick and simple but also wanted the colors to match. I went with OPI Absolutely Alice and OPI Swimsuit... Nailed it!

 OPI Absolutely Alice is a royal blue glitter with hints of gold glitter mixed in. OPI Swimsuit... Nailed it! is described as a rich blue foil.
My index and ring finger are 2 coats of Absolutely Alice. While, my middle and pinky are 2 coats of Swimsuit... Nailed it!. All have a base coat of Hard As A Hoof Nail Strengthener and a top coat Seche Vite. I probably should have done 2 coats of Seche Vite because with 1 coat Absolutely Alice was still very gritty feeling.
My camera didn't want to pick up the gold glitters in Absolutely Alice. Although, you can get an idea of how it looks in real life by looking at my index finger in this last picture. That being said, I'm pretty underwhelmed by Absolutely Alice. I just don't feel like the glitters, gold and blue, go together well. Swimsuit... Nailed it!, however, I love! The only downside it has though, it needs an extra coat of base coat before applying it. I ended up with Smurf fingers! :P

OPI Absolutely Alice is from OPI's Alice In Wonderland collection produced in the Spring of 2010. You may still be able to find through online retailers like Amazon and Ebay. Some blog sales may have it as well, which is where I purchased mine through. OPI Swimsuit... Nailed it! is from OPI's Miss Universe Collection released in Summer 2011. Like Absolutely Alice, you can find it through various online retailers. I have also seen some of the Miss Universe Collection at my local Target, so check there as well! Find OPI on Facebook here.
