OPI Mad as a Hatter

Oh yes. I love this glitter. I know you all love it too. I just haven't showed it earlier!

When I was getting into polish this collection came out, and I ordered only this one. Later I got my paws on Absolutely Alice (regretting not getting it in the first place) but this one is still so special to me!

Mad as a Hatter is a multi colored glitter (in fact, I think this one started the multicolored glitter craze) in a clear base. It has great coverage, with around 3 coats you can have totally covered nails. My bottle has thickened up like mad so I dabbed on 2 coats. No, application wasn't easy. It does dry relatively smooth though, 1 layer of topcoat is enough to tame this gorgeous!

Did you get Mad as a Hatter when it was first released or at a later moment? Or didn't you get it all?

  4. I bought this when it came out (and about 4 back ups of which I have 2 left after gifting one and selling another)...I am not one who wears a ton of glitters but I love, love this polish. Many imitations out there - none are dupes at all...true collectors NEED this polish!

  7. Back when this came out I was completely unaware of "Nail World", so I missed out. Btw if yours is thickening you can always get some Seche thinner for it))

  9. I got the Mattese Elite version of this. It stinks. Wish I had bought this when it was out.

    Love it and have it! Didn't get it when it was released but after a lot of troubble I finally got it! I think Barry M's Silver Cascade is a very close dupe, but let's face it, it's not the original! ;)

  14. Sigh. I think this is my I'm never going to find it but I want it so badly I can taste it!" nail polish. It's positively gorgeous.

  15. I have never liked it, and god knows I tried..:) I don't like those China Glaze multi-coloured glitters either. Just too much going on. But it looks good on you though.

  16. I didn't get it! I hadn't seen anywhere I could buy OPI and I wasn't really big into buying online when it was released. It's so beautiful, I'm just waiting for OPI to release something similar in a Nicole or Sephora collection, fingers crossed! x

  17. I didn't like glitter polishes back then, and not getting this is one of my biggest regrets. I also regret not getting the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland shadows. :(

  18. Absolutely a collecter item! I love it and have a back-up too - though I might be crazy enough to use it for swapping once though.

  25. Yeah there are a few polishes close but it's also the name that makes it even more awesome for me!

  27. Love love love that glitter! I hardly wear it because I am scared of running out, lol.

  28. Ah! I want this! I wonder if there's any way I could get a hold of one somehow, on Ebay or something.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. If you do find it on eBay it is so expensive :(. Hope you come across it someday for a reasonable price!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha well it does get thick so make sure you check it every now and then and give it some love!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We all have those lemmings that could have been fulfilled so easily :(.

  32. Thanks for the compliment! It is a busy polish indeed and usually I wear simple clothes with it to tone it down :).
