OPI The Living Daylights

I put this over Colour Alike's Purple Twist.

This is okay to use and okay to apply - it is more like dabbing so make sure you have plenty glitters on the brush by dipping it in and out a few times. Drying was okay too (4-5 minutes). Lasted really well.

Finish = glitter
Removal = tricky even with foils, let soak for a few minutes

My Personal Rating = 7.5/10 :-)

Models Own Freak Out

I put this over Colour Alike's Yellow Flash.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and slow drying (9-10 minutes a coat). Make sure you have plenty glitter on the brush by dipping it in and out of the bottle a few times before application. It is a really nice glitter and I think it looks great on the yellow! I can forgive the slow drying time ;-) Lasted well.
