OPI 'Polka.Com'

Helloo! I recently reorganised my whole polish collection and realised just how many untrieds and hidden treasures I have. I set myself a mission of finally wearing them all - or at least trying! Today I have OPI topper 'Polka.Com' to show you. I got this absolutely ages ago in a destash and just never got round to using it. Read on to find out more!

'Polka.Com' is a clear base full of metallic pink, light blue, and purple hex glitters along with smaller circles (almost microglitter). It was released in Spring 2013 as part of the Euro Centrale collection.

I applied 'Polka.Com' over a base of ORLY 'Purple Crush' (swatched here). There was a good amount of glitter on the brush which spread out evenly without any issues. The glitters do cause it to dry slightly textured so I would recommend a topcoat. Below is one coat with topcoat over 'Purple Crush'.

What do you think? The main reason I'd never worn this is because I had no idea what base colour to use. I wanted something to help it pop without overpowering any of the colours. I'm glad I tried it over ORLY's 'Purple Crush' as I love it! What would you put it over? I want to slowly try it over a few different bases and see how it looks.

Hope to see you in the next post!
