OPI A Grape Affair + LA Girl Splatter Sprinkle glitter


I'm so glad this week is almost over! Just some simple layering for today. I usually do monochrome combinations but I'm really liking contrast right now! 

LA Girl Splatter glitter in "Sprinkle" has magenta and white small, medium, and large hex glitters, along with a few pink bar glitters (I didn't happen to get any out in this mani though). It went on fairly easily. I had to dab to fill in a few spots but for the most part it covered fairly easily and stayed where I put it. 


Base is OPI A Grape Affair from the Coca-Cola Collection. This is a dark eggplant purple creme. You can tell it is purple in most lighting... However in low lighting it pretty much looks black. This applied fairly easily... It was a bit streaky on the first coat but it evened out nicely with the second coat. Shown is 2 coats no topcoat.


I'm not sure how well these polishes lasted... I tried using Elmer's glue as peel off base coat and it started coming off in chunks on the second day :( I can't get peel off base to work for me... it always comes off too early! I tried leaving a border which helped me get to 2 days but I wish it lasted longer. Any other tips?

  1. Great combination with these two colors. That deep dark purple looks great underneath that glitter.

    1. Thanks! I agree... The base is a bit boring for me on its own
