Perfect Glitter Nails; OPI

Doing my nails is literally one of my all time favourite things to do. Whether it be in front of my favourite trashy TV programme of the moment (Celebrity big brother has me hooked this year, I don't think I have ever seen a crazier series!) or even snuggled up in bed, there's something so therapeutic about it. Glittery nails are of course my favourite kind and I recently got given as a gift the shade Rose of Light by OPI. It's the most beautiful clear polish with rose gold glitter and small flecks of gold that just catch the light perfectly. This is it with just two coats on which I think is pretty impressive for a clear base coloured polish.
To prevent it becoming a nightmare to take off, on top of my OPI Original Nail Envy (the best nail product ever!) I used the Glitter Off Natural Nail Base Coat. This stuff is seriously amazing. Instead of having to scrub your nails for days to pick all the little bits of leftover glitter, you simply have to peel the whole thing off! It makes wearing glitter polish a thousand times easier!
I also finished off with the OPI Rapid Dry Top Coat. Although I wouldn't describe still having to wait 5 minutes or so for your nails to become mostly dry as "rapid" this is the best top coat I think I have ever used. It makes my nail varnish last so much longer which is great when using cheaper alternatives which on my nails would only last a few days and gives plain coloured polish a lovely shine. 
Please excuse my bright red fingers in the photographs, being a student in Winter means spending most of the day absolutely freezing and living in the East Coast of Scotland really doesn't help matters. My house is currently comparable to the arctic. Let me know in the comments what your favourite glitter polishes are because I am always on the hunt for more sparkly ones!
