opi absolutely alice

I was very excited about the OPI polish colors inspired by the upcoming Tim Burton film Alice in Wonderland. I purchased this one, as well as Mad as a Hatter. I do not like Absolutely Alice and will be giving it away. It is way to chunky and dried my nails out terribly. I am not sure what the problem is, but this is a really bad formula. It also took 10 cotton balls and half a bottle of polish remover to get it off. I loved Mad as a Hatter though (I'll swatch that soon).

If you are looking for a blue sparkly polish, I would suggest China Glaze's Dorothy Who. I tried this recently at State Beauty and loved it. It is not "chunky" at all and shows up a very bright and shiny blue.

    post the award, answer the question, and pass it on! congratulations! :)

  2. OMG, i completely agree! i actually even loved the colors but it is NOT worth taking off. terrible formula :(

  3. I'm glad it isn't just me! I was so sad; the color looks beautiful in the bottle, but it really messed up my nails. That China Glaze color is pretty on!

  4. Such a pretty shade, but too bad it's so hard to remove. Have you tried the "foil method" for removing glitters? I haven't tried it yet but I hear it is amazing and effortless. You soak a cotton ball in remover, then place it on your nail and wrap your fingertip in aluminum foil. You do this for each finger and leave them on for about 5 minutes, and supposedly the polish is pretty much gone by the time you remove the foil! I'm going to try it the next time I use a stubborn glitter. :)
