OPI: Nutcracker Sweet glitter top coat

Ooooh,  I love how a little bit of sparkle can dress up a mani!!  I applied two coats of an old limited release OPI glitter top coat (Nutcracker Sweet) to add some oomph to my week-old Aussie Beach polish.  This nail polish is very old and hard to find these days.  I purchased my bottle as part of the Victorian Holiday Collection YEARS ago on the Australian TV Shopping Network (TVSN).

Nutcracker Sweet contains a mix of fine bronze and holographic glitter so it creates a party on your nails and twinkles in the light. My one criticism is the dry time which is very slow, and the polish remains soft so a finishing layer of quick dry top coat is a must.  Apart from that, the effect is just gorgeous!

Full sun - see the light twinkling on my pinky?


I'd love to try this top coat over a vampy brown creme or black.

Until my next post.

  1. Hi vita what's your favorite nail polish remover??

  2. That looks stunning! I'm also curious to know your fave nail polish remover :)

  3. @Bini - For ages its been the green OPI polish remover because it's effective and it's a moisturising formula so it doesn't dry out my nails. I've also been hearing good things about Zoya Remove recently so I might order me some of that to try for a comparison.

    @Vintage - Thanks for the compliment :) As per my comments to Bini, I use the green OPI polish remover.

  4. thanks Vita. I love changing my nail colours but sometimes taking one colour off is just such a chore it takes away all the fun. I have been considering buying pure Acetone LOL

  5. Hey, I just wanted to say thanks so much for stopping by my blog! ♥

    LOVE LOVE LOVE that glittery polish on you :)

  6. @The Lip Print - Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I'm a fan of your blog :)
