OPI Skull & Glossbones with OPI More Than A Glimmer

I've had this one for ages and this is the first time I've used it. No idea why I wait so long to try a polish sometimes, but it's a shame I waited so long on this one.

OPI Skull & Glossbones with OPI More Than A Glimmer for the accent nail. Skull & Glossbones was released in the 2011 Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides collection. I was so happy with this mani and so excited. Then it started drying...then the bubbles. UGH!! The bubbles. I don't think I've ever had so many bubbles in a mani. I didn't change my mani routine at all, so I have no idea why so many bubbles. Even with the bubbles though it's pretty. Skull & Glossbones is a light grey with green undertones. It's a great color. The application was weird. It went on showing brush lines and took 3 coats until the brush lines were not showing. It looked like as the brush applied the polish it also raked some off so there were bare lines in the first two coats. I wonder if there is something off in the formula of the bottle I have. Maybe that's why all the bubbles. I'll do a test mani with it and see if it happens again at some point.
For my accent nail I used OPI More Than A Glimmer. It was released this fall for the Pink Of Hearts breast cancer awareness set OPI does every year. More Than A Glimmer is multi sized metallic glitter in a milky base. It's like party confetti. I really like this. I have some other similar glitter polish but none in a milky base. I think it looks fantastic with Skull and Glossbones. The application was really nice. I didn't have to fish for glitter and this is one coat! Lovely


  1. That is a very nice combination. Skull & glossbones looks so off in my hands so I am afraid I cannot copy this, even though it looks fantastic on you.

  2. Thank you! And thanks for looking :D
