Nicki Minaj Collection Swatches

Hello everyone :)
Today I have for you swatches of the recently released Nicki Minaj collection from OPI. I pre-ordered the whole collection as I loved all the promo shots of the colours and having a small obsession with Nicki Minaj obviously helped :P Anyway onto the swatches...
Here's a shot of all the bottles together, from left to right - Pink Friday, Did It On 'Em, Fly, Metallic 4 Life, Save Me and Super Bass Shatter. Now I originally thought that Did It On 'Em would be the same as Who The Shrek Are You? from the Shrek Forever After collection but it's not, Did It On 'Em is more of a yellow green than Who The Shrek Are You?. I also thought that Fly would be similar to Ogre The Top Blue from the same collection but Fly is turquoise where as Ogre The Top Blue is true bright blue.
Here's swatches of Pink Friday (Index and pinky finger) Super Bass Shatter (middle finger over Pink Friday) and Metallic 4 Life (Ring finger). Pink Friday is such a beautiful pink creme. Two coats gave me perfect coverage and it applies really well. it's a true barbie pink I felt so girly with this colour on and adding Metallic 4 Life and Super Bass Shatter give it a little more edge :) I used two coats of Metallic 4 Life and that also covered very well, it's such a beautiful combination of colour and glitter, I love it. I really didn't like shatter polishes when they first came out but the colour and shatter pattern of Super Bass Shatter really changed my mind, I can see this getting a lot of use in the summer months. 

I used two coats for both Fly and Did It On 'Em and again they applied like a dream, not streaky at all. This picture isn't very colour accurate for Did It On 'Em though, it's a little more yellow that it shows. However, Fly is a true colour representation and I am in love with this colour, I've been searching for the perfect turquoise forever and I think this might be it :)
I then applied Save Me over both Fly and Did It On 'Em. I LOVE THIS POLISH!!! It's so beautiful, it's silver glitter and holographic bar glitter in a clear base, but one coat covers very well, it's best use is probably as a layering polish as I've used it but it could also be used on it's own with a few more coats, this is beautiful! :)

So there are my swatches, let me know what you think of my first swatching post :) I actually really enjoyed showing you these polishes :)
Thanks for reading,
