My favourite way to wear OPI Absolutely Alice

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Thursday :) How has your week been? Classes started yesterday. I only have one class on Wednesdays and Fridays, so as I'm writing this I've only actually been to one of my five classes. It was a history class and it seems like it will be interesting, though it's material I've studied before and know a lot about because I'm a nerd lol. I have journalism and two more history classes tomorrow. My fifth class is a stupid night history class :( It wasn't a night class when I signed up for it but apparently something came up with the professor... night classes SUCK. A three hour lecture is ungodly no matter who the professor is. Anyway!

I also just wanted to mention that I added a FAQ section to my blog. I tried to hit the questions I get most often but I seem to be fairly evenly divided on getting questions about polish and about me as a, like, person. You can read it here if you want to. You can find out fascinating tidbits like where I'm from and what my favourite topcoat is. Also what camera I use, which is a question I've been getting a lot lately!

Today I have a post that might upset some people LOL. OPI Absolutely Alice is a gorgeous polish that is becoming more HTF (oh, how I long for the days when I got it for $8 including shipping on evilbay) and it's lovely on its own but sometimes I like to... spruce it up a bit. I wear AA more than MAAH, for some reason, probably because I can get AA pretty much entirely opaque in two coats but MAAH can take three or four depending on how crappy I'm polishing that day LOL. Here's one picture, I bet some of you will see what I do to it right away!

Yis. Black glitter. That's two coats of AA and one coat of NOPI Pitch Black Glimmer. No topcoat because I like my glitters gritty, you know this! :D

Again without topcoat. But complete with finger smudges all up on that bottle... my apologies!


And since I know a lot of you are curious... this is what it looks like with topcoat.

I don't say this often, but I think it's actually better with topcoat. I love the depth topcoat brings out!

So there we go! What do you guys think? Do you ever feel like polishes that have kind of become "classics" need a little update when you wear them sometimes? What's your favourite way to spice up an old favourite?

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!


  1. It is perfectly fine to give your polishes multiple personalities. This looks good both with and without a top coat.

  2. new follwer, and relatively new to the blogging world.. I just got AA a few days ago.. and I am IN LOVE.

  3. Gorgeous!!! I absolutely <333 it with the black glitter. Nice combo! :)

  4. This is so beautiful! I love it even more this way!

  5. That looks really nice. Black glitter is the bomb!

  6. great idea!! I need to try this!

  7. The only thing that can improve a glitter is MORE GLITTER!

  8. I love this polish so much! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to snag it when it came out :( It looks awesome on your nails!

  9. I like how you added the black glitter on top for that extra bit of something special.
