NOTD | Tinsel Nails with Revlon Midnight Affair and OPI Mad as a Hatter

December 7, 2011

Painting my nails while caring for my little one is quite a feat. Between nursing and diaper changes, I finally managed to do my fingers and piggies, lacquering them with Revlon Midnight Affair (an inky navy with blue micro-shimmer) from the Dark Pleasures collection and OPI Mad as a Hatter (crazy tinsel town glitter with an overall cool tone) from the Alice in Wonderland collection.

I wish I’d taken a photo of Midnight Affair pre-Hatter – it has a beautiful crème finish that looks really classy.

The glitter polish is special enough on its own but I love how it pops over the dark base to give me the appearance of pewter-rainbow nails.

I used the Dolly Wink Top Coat (thank you, Mandom Singapore!) which, despite its minute size, surprised me with its quick-dry feature and hardiness…much-welcomed here in my realm of mummy chores and baby loving! ;)

      Hi Jamilla,

      I love this crazy tinsel town glitter. Sparkle-licious is louder but I prefer the cool tones of Mad as a Hatter.

      Hi Jo,

      Have you tried using a nail polish thinner?
