Since I first laid eyes on OPI Polka.com in the OPI Euro Centrale Collection press release, I knew that it had to be mine!
A glitter polish like this is really fun to layer with, and because there’s a transparent base, it means you can put it over virtually anything.
I was already wearing Essie Mint Candy Apple, so I decided to try it over that.
Unfortunately, my photos don’t show how sparklicious this manicure is. The vibrancy of the glitter also didn’t seem to translate in my photos. But, if you have these two polishes, trust me, the combination is like a glittery Easter egg! You’ll love it way more in person!

OPI Polka.com Review
Because of the reflection on the pieces of glitter, it may look like there are tons of colours in my photos. In actuality, there are 3 different colours – fuchsia, blue, and purple, from what I could tell.
The hexagonal glitter come in all 3 shades, but the smaller glitter seemed to only be pink and purple.
Together, the different-sized glitter and the different colours really look like a party. I loved how they created a glittery Easter-egg effect. (If you went gaga over the Illamasqua speckled nail polishes, but wanted something less expensive to tide you over, this OPI polish could do the trick!)
Despite having so much glitter, it wasn’t gritty like I thought it was going to be. And, when I put a top coat over it, it was so smooth!
Application & Formula
OPI Polka.com was very easy to apply. It wasn’t goopy, and I found it simple to control. Sometimes, however, the glitter would tend to clump in one spot, but if you use the brush to move it around a bit, you can easily get it to disperse evenly with minimal effort.
As with many glitter polishes, I found that Polka.com dried quite quickly. It’s great for if you’re in a pinch.
Final Verdict: 10/10
I really love OPI Polka.com. In fact, I wore this manicure for several days – didn’t want to remove it! Eventually, I had to…haha, or else I wouldn’t have any new content for the blog! 😉
