OPI Burlesque Collection Part 2: GLITTERS!!

By  |  17 Comments

Sorry these are late! Here’s the second half of the OPI Burlesque Collection, the Glitters!! These are absolutely gorgeous colors, I’m a sucker for polishes with lots of shine and shimmer, and these deliver for sure. They’re very multidimensional and are pretty opaque within three coats (there may be a spot or two on some nails that aren’t totally covered, but that’s the nature of glitter polishes with a clear base). These would also look really cool with one coat over another color.

Bring on the Bling: Gold glitter with silver, pink, and green reflects. The picture makes it look like more of a greenish gold, but I think it’s a pretty true gold.

Extra-va-vaganza: Bronzey glitter with red and silver reflects.

Sparkle-licious: This is kind of a confetti color, if that makes sense. It’s a purple & gold base glitter with all sorts of reflects depending on where the light hits it. The name is very fitting!

Show it and Glow it!: Another beautiful color. Purple with silver reflects.

 

If you’ve never used glitter polish, keep in mind that they are a bit more difficult to remove than normal polish. The easiest ways that I have found are to just  pick off the polishes with your nails or to soak a cotton pad with polish remover and let it sit on your nails for longer than you normally would, then press down harder than usual and pretty much pull off as much of the polish as you can. If you try and take off the polish as you would normally, it will take you a LONG time, as the glitter can be difficult!!

    Felt + acetone works waaaay better than cotton and regular nail polish remover for glitter polish!

    The best way to remove glitter relatively “easy” is to soak a cotton balls in acetone based remover, apply to nail, and cover with some foil. Sit about 10 minutes…comes right off without rubbing. (You may look weird for a little while with foil wrapped fingers…but it works!)

    I envy those who have the patience to work with glitter polishes. I absolutely love them, but they are such a pain in the ass to apply and remove. When I try to go over my cuticles after applying, I always smear the polish everywhere. Mess. But I love these colors, especially Show It and Glow It.

    I have them all and love them, but like you said they are hard as hell to get off. I have pure acetone and wash cloth that i use for all nail polish and it was still hard as hell ;)

    i have sparkle-icious (gaw-geous) and when i apply three coats to make it opaque, i found that after a few days the polish just came off as a whole. from there, i just picked it off of each nail, and it came off without breaking. if that makes sense.
    pretty much if you pick at it, the whole polish will just lift off in one piece.
    this probably wouldn’t work if you don’t use this polish for opaqueness.

    Uggg! I’d love buy some OPI ail polish but here they’re about 20 $… Which is crazy! (I’m Italian, but many other european girls told me it’s the same thing for them :( )

    Do you know if “Simmer & Shimmer” is similar to “Absolutely Alice”? I don’t want to buy S&S if its too close to AA…

      if memory serves AA is much more of a darker blue
