OPI Rainbow Connection–Revisited

Rainbow Connection is one of my most favourite nail polishes ever; I did a post on it here when I first bought it in November but thought that I’d revisit it now that I have a better camera and can truly capture it’s beauty. I’ve also found a few dupes of the polish that I will list at the end of this post.

OPI Rainbow Connection applied over OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
As you can see from the images Rainbow Connection is a multi glitter polish, it has a clear base and is packed with large hexagonal pieces of glitter accompanied with smaller traditional sized glitter pieces. The glitter is in a rainbow of colours but the silver glitter is the most prominent to me, this is because many of the large hex pieces are silver. Over a dark base like the one I’ve used I think it looks lovely, you get quite an even coverage with one coat but I prefer two as I like my nails to be super sparkly. This is a polish that needs to be dabbed on rather than brushed on as the glitter needs to be placed on the nail or it will all collect together at the tips. I also topped the nail polish off with a coat of Seche Vite to make sure that it stays in place and is nice and glossy looking.
As this nail polish was limited edition I’m sure it’s very tricky to find now, and if you do happen upon it I’m sure it will be at an extortionate price. I have found a few dupes for the polish that are still available:

  1. Ack I wanted Rainbow Connection so much when I first saw it! Unfortunately at the time I couldn't really afford to spend that much on a nail polish so I let it pass ): I definitely think I going to have to hunt down a bottle of that Carnival by Technic!x

  2. Out of the whole of The Muppets collection, Rainbow Connection was the one that stood out for me. It just sold out before I could get my hands on it, and I spent ages trawling through the shopping pages of Google looking for one somewhere with no luck. At least with these dupes I can save a bit of money and still get the pretty effect of Rainbow Connection. Thanks for sharing, I'm jealous that you own it! xx

  13. I live for glitter nail polish, but I don't have this (I know what the hell is up with that) I may have to buy the real thing if I can. If not I will go for the tech one I think or I may make my own.
