OPI Absolutely Alice over Essie Mesmerize

Sometimes I’m just in the mood for glitter. I was having one of those moments when Absolutely Alice (from OPI’s Alice in Wonderland collection)  jumped out at me.

Absolutely Alice, when worn alone, is a chip fest. It tends to chip off in huge flakes. So I used one coat of Absolutely Alice over Essie Mesmerize in an attempt to minimize chipping. The only other times I’ve worn this polish it’s either been alone or over Ulta Alter Ego (which is very similar in color to Absolutely Alice), so I was surprised when after one coat Mesmerize was completely covered.

Using just one coat of Absolutely Alice over a base color really helps prevent chipping.

This is kind of a fun change of pace from the usual pastel cremes for Spring. Using this makes me want to pull out OPI Show it and Glow it!
