Vintage Challenge Glitter: OPI Mad as a hatter

Hello there! How are you ?
Today is another "double challenge" day, Vintage Challenge schedule says GLITTAH!!!! lol
I have an "epic" glitter aka OPI Mad as a hatter. This nail polish came out in a limited edition in January 2010 as part of the Alice in Wonderland Collection. I got the mini set as soon as I could spot it, for once containing all the colours of the collection. Mad as a Hatter and Absolutely Alice were my first two glitters, so that's why I called them "epic".


Mad as a hatter is a multicolour fine round glitter that gives full coverage in three coats. It is beyond sparkly! It needs only one coat of seche vite to feel totally smooth. In the pictures I'm wearing it over a grey nail polish that you cannot see, because the glitter covered it completely. I took pictures with and without topcoat, because now that texture polishes are in, I thought it could be interesting to show you a little "grittiness", lol.


I love this polish, but I have to admit I wouldn't wear it for everyday life. Not only because I only own the mini version and that would feel like a waste, but also because it is so sparkly that it NEEDS some "glam" situation to be shown off.
What do you think of this gem? Do you own Mad as a Hatter? What are your vintage glitters?
Don't forget to check on the lovely ladies of this challenge!
Love,
Nati

PS. tomorrow Challenge is "Vintage holo" and as I don't own any, I will not post. But stay tuned because later today I'll post the Tri-polish Challenge!

  1. Salut Nati - what a great thing that Jezz and you are showing the same - I just LOVE such twinsy posts - it shows the true versatility of a polish!!! And no surprise here - I like both versions. What a great idea to layer it over grey!!!! And no, I don't own this glitter - Locavore was for a long time my only one, I was sort of convinced I could not pull off glitters (???? that was BEFORE serious addiction kicked in - just in case you wonder). - I am so happy that you like our Challenge and how wonderfully you contribute <3!!!

    1. Hi Christine! thanks for your sweet comment. I was also not very fond of glitter, I used to think it look kind of "childish". But now that I'm a younger person up here (pointing the head) I looooove glitter!
      bisous!xxx

  2. Hihi, cool that you both showed this one! :D But I understand why you got them, it sure is beautiful. It is actually just a few years back I've started to appreciate glitter more. Before I actually liked creme best, followed by shimmer. Now days I've learned about so much more finishes and therefore more lovely polishes! :D

    1. Hi Gelic! I was just saying the same thing to Christine, i'm leaving behind some pre-conceived ideas I had to leave more room to creativity and I really like it!

    1. Al ser pequeños glitters queda más "discreto" que otros con glitters grandes.

    2. Muy cierto y eso es lo que me gusta de ese color la discreción en comparación con muchos de los que he visto.

  5. Ciao Nati! LOL! It's so fun we both chose MAAH!!! :D It proves how stunning and beautiful it is!! :D
    I love your pictures of it!! I actually layered it too over a blue polish but it's hardly visible on my pics. Maybe mine smelled more because it's a larger amount in a large bottle...? Or different batches...? Stammi bene cara! Baci! xx

  7. Collezione saltata a piè pari, in quanto detesto Alice in Wonderland. Ti do ragione sul fatto che per portare questo gioiello ti serva un'occasione adatta. ;)

    1. Oh! Francine, detesti Alice in Wonderland the movie oppure il libro? Ti concedo che il film lasciava un bel po a desiderare... ma la storia de l.Carrol io la amo! proprio perché non è afatto un libro per bambini.
