Mixing Metals: OPI Glitzerland and Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

Last week I speculated that I could make a fantastic new nail polish by painting OPI’s Glitzerland and Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous one on top of the other — a reprise, if you will, of my greatest combination to date: Sally Hansen Iced Metal over OPI Classic.

The results weren’t exactly what I expected.

Both polishes are too opaque to let the bottom color really show through; whichever one you paint on top dominates the manicure.

They also have different finishes. Glitzerland is a fine golden veil without distinct sparkles; Lucerne-tainly is sparkly, cool, dark silver. Here’s Glitzerland over Lucerne-tainly (I think I reinvented Cover Girl’s Bronze Beauty).

Lucerne-tainly on top of Glitzerland is not substantially different from Lucerne-tainly alone.

Glitzerland and Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous are both from OPI’s fall Swiss collection. OPI polishes are $8.50 each.

    By that top pic it looks like you almost created Chanel Kaleidoscope!

    I like your mix, I’d buy it – I don’t like glitzerland alone so I bought just lucerne :(

  • knownever says:

    The two iterations do give a slightly different look. i’m such a fan of mixing my own nail colors. i love doing sheer silver over a baby pink. it comes out girly/edgy at the same time
