technic carnival OPI rainbow connection dupe

technic carnival nail polish: ebay (via moi!) 

I've seen this little dupe for my favourite OPI Rainbow Connection Nail Polish on a few blogs, But I couldnt find it in shops or on ebay so I ended up wholesale buying a few lots so I could have one as a backup (counter productive, I know). Technic Carnival is pretty much exactly the same but much cheaper than the original OPI Rainbow Connection and I think its a bit nicer as its not stuffed full of silver glitter. Great for layering and looks lovely alone too. Its a clear polish jam packed with multi sized and coloured glitter particles!

Anyway Im selling the rest of the lot on ebay for £3 per bottle so feel free to grab one! I've set up a new ebay account just for selling, as previously I just used my Mum's account to buy stuff from and I didnt think it was fair for people to start stalking her feedback. So this is why I currently have no feedback, pinkie promise I'm not a ebay scammer!
EDITED TO ADD: All my ones have now sold, I am going to see if I can source more! As per comments there have been sightings in Body Care & Nail Polish Direct (currently out of stock though)


  1. I have that technic one, I love it!

  2. I love all of the OPI glitters, so thanks for this dupe! I might have to treat myself to the technic one for only 3£!

  5. It looks exactly the same! impressive!

  6. Oooooh selling fast! Very very pretty stuff
    It would be mine

  8. I nearly bought the same one from another brand last week. But I didn't and bought another color. Now I almost regret it.


  9. oh i just went to buy it off you - and BAM, none left :( xo

    if you have any more... hollaaaaa

  10. urban decay electra is very similar too!!!! I love it over black nail polish, or a dark red.... beautiful! I have a review on my blog of it x great post xx


  11. I got mine in Bodycare a few weeks ago for 99p but they were out of stock just before xmas. It's such a lovely chunky glitter to have over other colours, looks amazing over black xx

  12. i'm wearing this glitter varnish atm, got mine from Bodycare for £1, it's amazing. I've put two coats over a turquoise colour, it looks so pretty! <3

  13. saw lilys was sold out, they also do it online on this website here for £3.00 (plus 60p vat) and free delivery: http://www.nailpolishdirect.co.uk/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=technic_carnival&CartID=1

  14. Amazing dupe, been wanting Rainbow connection for such a long time as it's just so pretty! £3 is such a bargain, driving me crazy that all my money in the world at the minute is cash so I can't shop online haha!


  15. Awesome... they look soo similar!


  16. i love my carnival nail paint!

    in bodycare its just 99p! i have a post about a few glitter varnishes in their collection


  17. This looks amazing. You must get some more stock in please! :D x

  18. Definitely getting myself up to Bodycare to look for this! :) xx

  19. My mum nearly bought me this for xmas apparently, but she thought i'd be disappointed because its not the OPI one, I wish she had now, but still might pick it up as it sounds good x

  20. I usually don't go for nail polish like this, but for some reason this caught my eye!
    I feel like I need to be more adventurous with my nails!
    (Won't happen).

  21. i love rainbow connection so i might have to try nd find one of these for when rainbow connection runs out lol :D


  22. love this polish!! Where did you wholesale buy them?x


    1. They are from Bodycare and only 99p :)
