OPI Burlesque for holiday 2010 features twelve new colors. I showed you the shimmer ones the other day and today I have the glitter half.
Glitters. What a pain in the arse! I was kind of dreading swatching these because of the removal. Now I am starting to see why some bloggers just show one finger because the removal is so much easier that way!
Ok so now that we established that there are a chore to remove, even under the best of circumstances, we can move onto the colors. They are all pretty cool. A couple I feel like I may have seen similar ones, but most I liked.
All of these were three coats to get the most amount of glitter on the nail, but none are totally opaque. Maybe if you used super thick coats or 4 coats.
Oh and for some reason my camera DID NOT like taking photos of these, so they aren’t my best, sorry. It refused to focus on all four nails at once. Canon-freak-out-over-glitter-explosion-o-rama! 🙂
Bring On The Bling
Bring On The Bling is mainly gold with purple, pink and green glitter. This was one of my favorites I really liked the gold color and the combo of other glitter colors with it.
Extra-Va-Vaganza is mainly orange with silver, blue, and yellow glitter. I don’t love this one simply because I’m not a huge orange fan, but it could still look cool over black or something dark I think.
Glow Up Already!
Glow Up Already! is mostly light green and gold with pink, green and blue glitter. I love this one, it’s just festive and really cool looking. It is a little similar to Rescue Beauty Lounge Locavore, but not a dupe.
Sparkle-Iscious is mostly purple and gold with blue glitter. Mardi-Gras. That’s what I think immediately when I see these color combos and I love them. This is my favorite combination here, though I did find the coverage a little more sparse than the others. Again it’s reminiscent of Rescue Beauty Lounge Look Rich, Be Cheap, but definitely not a dupe.
Simmer & Shimmer
Simmer & Shimmer is a pale blue with blue, orange, pink, silver and purple glitter. The base of this isn’t clear it’s a really light blue, which adds some opacity. Pretty!
Show It & Glow It
Show It & Glow It is a magenta/purple with silver, blue and I think yellow glitter. Sometimes it’s really hard to see the colors individually! This is also really pretty.
For me the must haves here are Bring On The Bling, Glow It Up Already! and Sparkle-Iscious. The others are nice, but not anything I feel that excited about.
Ok folks, what do you like here? Does removal want to make you want to stick a fork in your eye? 🙂
