Nails of the day - OPI Austin Tatious Turquoise

Since I got my models own glitter polishes out the other day, I have rekindled my love for glitter and all things sparkly and decided to jazz up my nails. I have used two separate polishes to create this look,

OPI Austin-Tatious Turquoise (Texas Collection)
OPI - Gone Gonzo  (Muppets Collection)

Firstly I used two coats of OPI Austin-Tatious Turquoise, which is a blue/green shimmer with a purple undertone. This is quite a translucent and takes upto 4 coats for the perfect opaque colour, however as we are putting a glitter overcoat three coats is enough for a base colour. Below is with two coats. 
Below is with three coats.
I then painted my nails with two coats of OPI - Gone Gonzo, which is a translucent polish with a fine metalic blue glitter mixed with large silver hexagonal glitter. 

The finished result :) Honestly the pictures do not do these colours justice the fine blue glitter really sparkles in real life which isn't showing up on my camera :( Whats your favourite OPI shades ? xoxo
