Makeup Mail | OPI Nail Lacquer in Mad As A Hatter

February 1, 2010
By

I’d ordered OPI Nail Lacquer in Mad as a Hatter from eBay a week ago and it arrived in the mail on Friday. At first I thought it’d be similar to My Private Jet (a multi-coloured, holographic charcoal/almost-black lacquer from the same brand) but this polish is in a sparkle class of its own.

Part of the OPI Alice in Wonderland and way louder than My Private Jet, Mad as a Hatter is insanely glittery and crazily blinged-out. Its dominantly purple and silver base is a bed for pink, blue, green and red glitter, among other colours.  As Scrangie puts it, it has “…rainbow glitter tossed in…The overall effect is a jewel-encrusted look.”

What I like about this is that it doesn’t have a gritty finish, unlike some glitter polishes. It actually dries flat and relatively smooth. I haven’t tried it with a topcoat (the swatch above is Mad  as a Hatter neat) but I reckon that will up the amp on this already over-the-top nail colour!

      Hi Chevvie,

      Heh, thanks for letting me know. ;) I buy from several places actually (usually the cheapest, including shipping). Do a search?

    Will do! ;)

    For the CL shoes, you can google for Louboutins Sparkly(?) They usually do different shades of sparklies every season:)
