OPI Alice in Wonderland: The Glitters

"Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths outgrabe."

-Lewis Carroll

That right there is probably my favorite stanza of poetry to recite. It's just fun, silly nonsense that makes sense in some strange way!
Today, I have the wonderful OPI Alice in Wonderland glitters, Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter.  I'm sorry if you're into reds, but OPI does so many that I really couldn't justify buying them for myself.  I'm not a big red fan on my hands, so any reds I do buy end up as pedi fodder.

Le freaking awesome!! I'm pretty sure Absolutely Alice is the best glitter OPI has ever done.  It's obvious they have it in them when they can produce a stunner like this one! The blue is the color of Alice's dress with little flecks of gold dispersed throughout the shiny finish.  I love love love this polish and am really looking forward to it making its way back on my fingertips!!

Equally as sparkly and fun is Mad as a Hatter.  I think this polish suits it's name wonderfully with the smattering of multi-colored glitter it brings.  The glitter is super dense and there appears to be more purple glitter throughout. This polish makes me feel like I bathed in a craft aisle!

Although I love these polishes, I think Demetri Martin, put it best.  "Glitter is like the herpes of the craft world" and when it comes to cleaning these bad boys up it's true.  I kept finding little flecks of glitter here and there throughout the day.  Mind you, it shouldn't stop anyone from wearing these beauties!

I also hope OPI keeps bringing us glitters as fantastic as these!

    Do you know the foil method? It's the holy grail of glitter lovers everywhere!
    I cut my cotton rounds in quarters or use felt (works better imho) the size of my nail.
    Soak that in remover and put on your nail. I prefer acetone remover for this but non-acetone works too, just not as quick.
    Wrap nail with tin foil and leave it for a couple of minutes.
    Grab the package on your finger or take off the foil first so you can reuse it, apply a little downward pressure and slide it off.
    Presto! All glitter gone in one swipe!

    I do one hand at a time because it's kind of hard to manoeuvre with all fingers wrapped. It works wonderful. No rubbing, no damage, no glitter everywhere and you don't have to use much remover or cotton.

    Thanks, Kirsten! You're my first commenter :)
    I have been using the angry vajayjay to remove glitter, but it does leave me with glittery hands. I'll definitely try your suggestion!
