OPI X Factor Nails (Cher & Rebecca) - From 20th November 2010 Show!

If you’ve been following OPI on Twitter then you may know that they are the official manicurists on the X Factor, and if you don’t follow them well then now you know!

I’ve been receiving emails with details of the X Factor girls’ nails for the last few weeks and I’ve now received a few of the colours so that I can swatch and show you!

The first swatch I am showing you is Cher’s nail from last week’s X Factor (that is the 20th November) where she wore 3, yes THREE OPI colours in one go!

Now there was some confusion over her nails after the show, with some people being led to believe that they were leopard print nails, done with a nail art pen – and whilst I can see why they’d think that was the case (as from a distance you could be forgiven for thinking it), I can actually say 100% that the nail was created using OPI Glitzerland (Swiss Collection, which I’ll swatch very soon), Bring On The Bling (Burlesque Collection – swatched here!) and the new Black Shatter (Katy Perry Collection, due out in January 2011).

With flash:

I’ve done this nail using 3 coats of Glitzerland as a base as it applies quite sheer, 2 coats of Bring On The Bling and 1 coat of Black Shatter over the top – so quite easy to remember really.

Without flash (with the use of a day lamp though):

I’ve also done a few photo’s of Rebeccas nails, done in OPI ‘Royal Rajah Ruby’ although they’re not really done justice by the photo’s so I’ll try and put some more up shortly (in better light) but I’ve tried to show how the light catches the tiny shimmery flecks that this polish has. It was a dream to apply and this is showing just 2 coats of it – fab!


  1. i love chers' nails i'd love to know how to do those. i love nail art :)

  2. It was really very easy to do, using the black shatter (if you want to get the same kind of effect before the polish comes out in January then use the Barry M version). I'll be doing mine this way at weekend. :-)
