OPI, Mad as a Hatter

It just occurred to me that, although I've shown you swatches of MaaH on my birthday, I've never shown you a complete swatch. Well, summer is great time to wear glitter, anyway, so here it is!

It has a uniform silver flash, I think, which is what startled a lot of people when they figured out that this color had multicolored glitter in it, but I think that's why I love it.  Three coats, a little bit thick, but easy to work with. Also, its lasting time is much longer than Absolutely Alice, but ... well, AA is sparklier.

Mmmm, nom.


  1. that is beautiful! I never get tired of looking at it. Also, I love your long nail beds :-)

  2. I have the mini of this but I tried layering it once and didn't like it. Which makes me sad because I LOVE the way this looks on you. lol
    If it weren't a mini I'd try building to opacity like you did. I guess I'll have to get some of the holiday OPI sparkles and make it work! lol

  3. Angie: mmm, me too. :) I wore it on my toes for -ages- (which, for me, means about two weeks, haha). Thanks so much~

    sarah: Yeah, I can imagine that having a mini of this would be... arduous, to say the least. It's a bit too dense to be worn as a layering glitter, but I'd imagine that throwing in some clear could make it more amenable? I don't know...

    And yes! Gah, burlesque is making my wallet BURN. I want it all.

    Jana: aww, thank you! :3

  4. every time i see this polish i love it more and more!
