Nails - Technic Carnival

Just a quick little review on the OPI Rainbow Connection dupe, which I bought off ebay.


I applied the glitter polish over Sephora Metro Chic and Models Own Purple Mystique. I don't have OPI Rainbow Connection, but from the swatches I have seen online it seems like a pretty good dupe. I used two coats of it to achieve the amount of glitter seen here, but I can imagine it would look amazing with one or two more layers. The polish applies well and dries pretty quickly - I'm really impressed with this, especially for the price I paid for it.
I bought this from this seller for £2.99. I'm guessing the seller has realised how popular this nail polish is as they have upped the price to £6.99 - but I have found one cheaper here if you want to get your little mitts on it.


  1. I love this nail varnish too! But it was hell to take off :p haha!! It looks stunning on doesn't it! :)
    Funny that the seller put the price up too, total taking advantage!

  2. Great to see the varnish on your nails! Bit sneaky of the seller to put the price up I think! xx
