OPI Lights of Emerald City

Normally I don't put this much effort into a swatch, but I have been wearing this one over and over for the past month, and I love it.  I just can't get enough.  I mean, if you know me even just a little bit, you know I absolutely love white glitter!  So when I saw this at the nail supply I nabbed it.  Get ready for awesomeness!
Here I layered one coat of LOEC over Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth.  I had a little trouble digging out the larger white glitters, but this was just one coat.  I did get quite a bit of the smaller square glitters.  They are opalescent and beautiful.  They don't show up that great on the purple though so let's move to blue.
Here I layered one coat over Color Club Hydrangea Kiss.  Still had a little trouble getting the larger white glitters out and still the opalescent glitter doesn't show that well, but I love the combo of this glitter over the dusty blue.
Here I used China Glaze Four Leaf Clover.  I did get more of the glitters out this time because I turned the bottle upside down (duh!).  I did have to place them randomly so that they wouldn't drag to the free edge of my nail.
This is my ultimate favorite combination.  I left the bottle upside down over night and I actually didn't have to place the glitter.  This is just one coat over Zoya Storm.  The opalescent glitter shows up so great against the black and I love that it's showing up orange/yellow/red too.

Overall I had no problems with this polish.  The formula builds up to be really thick if you're applying more than one coat so do what I did and turn the bottle upside so that you can easily get the larger white glitters out.  

So this is my second pick from the Great and Powerful Oz collection.  The other is What Wizardry Is This? and they are the only ones I really liked so I'm glad they're mine.  What are the one's you chose?!


  1. So pretty! I really like it over the green and black.
