OPI Starlight Holiday 2015 Collection swatches and review! This collection is Limited Edition for the Holidays. Whether you love a bold metallic with glitter or a traditional red this collection is sure to please!
Let’s have a closer look, shall we?
Love Is In My Cards | “This warm, romantic red is destined for me.” Your typical holiday red. Reds are tricky because if you happen to have any spill on to your cuticle it’s game over. This one stayed in the lines and with two coats you have an opaque cherry red.
Ro-Man-Ce On The Moon | “Rendezvous in the glow of this lustrous, rich red.” Shimmery and red, very festive! This would look nice mattified.
Guys & Galaxies | “This maroon beauty makes my world go ‘round.” I was actually surprised how opaque this was with one coat! Usually deep maroons apply sheer and you have to build them up, this took two THIN coats.
I’m In The Moon For Love | “Simply because I’m wearing this plum.” Cute and festive. This applied well with two thin coats.
Cosmo With A Twist | “Subtle sparkle adds depth to this purple.” My type of shade! Deep purple with almost iridescent shimmer throughout. LOVE.
Give Me Space | “Night-sky blue with room to sparkle.” I know. We all thought this would be a dupe for essie’s SSN. It’s not. It is, however, gorgeous on it’s own! Love it. 🙂
Comet Closer | “May I take this warm, textured gold?” It’s very pretty, but I feel like I’ve seen this one before.
Is This Star Taken? | “Iridescent icicles fly in this smooth gold.” I can see where OPI was trying to go with this one, and to be fair in the bottle it looks GORGEOUS! However, it becomes a little clumpy when applied (I don’t mind as I like textured manis) and you definitely have to wait for it to dry between coats!
I Drive A Supernova | “Hitch a ride on this lustrous sterling silver.” Okay, silver polish. No complaints but we’ve all seen this shade before!
By The Light Of The Moon | “Silvery and sparkly…prepare to swoon” I really wanted to like this polish, because it looked so pretty in the bottle. BUT, once applied it globbed up and the sparkles disappeared. *Sad face* what you end up getting is a texturized metallic finish, where the sparkles are overwhelmed by polish.
Super Star Status | “A spotlight-stealing silver and gold glitter.” Silver AND gold sparkles mixed into one polish, what more could you want for the holidays? …and this is one coat!
Center Of The You-Niverse | “Endless space black shimmer.” I feel like I’ve seen this before, but it’s still pretty. Application took a few coats for this one to even out.
Ce-Less-Tial Is More | “This pink super-glitter shines with heavenly light.” I LOVE THIS SHADE. I seriously can’t stop staring at my nails when I’m wearing it. Smooth application, texturized finish and lots going on! Did I mention there are holographic sparkles throughout?! (It also applies as a OCW) YES OPI.
Let Your Love Shine | “Show it off in shimmery, red splendor!” I’m not usually a fan of red shimmery shades but this one is deep enough that it is passable in my books. Even application (which can be hard with shimmer). No complaints.
No More Mr. Night Sky | “An assertive, dark, shimmery gray” I’m definitely picking up some purple undertones, and I’m liking it… It’s borderline holographic. Very dark-but-festive.
Press * For Silver | “This warm, rosy silver really calls to me” The application for this one was flawless, which is rare for a metallic. LOVE.
Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Meteorite | “Pink confetti and glitter” This and Infrared-Y To Glow (see below) are too similar for my liking, yet I still like them both. The perfect amount of chunky glitter that can be layered or worn alone.
Infrared-Y To Glow | “Strike up the glam with red confetti and glitter” I kind of like this one by itself and it’s definitely build-able (you can layer over a different shade)!
My tips & tricks: For METALLIC shades, I like to use a ridge filling base as it helps even out the application, and we all know how streaky metallic finishes can be! For GLITTER based shades, I like to use OPI Glitter Off as a base coat- this way you can simply peel them off once you’re ready to change polish. No more struggling with nail polish remover to remove those stubborn sparkles. 🙂
OPI Starlight is available now in select stores and Beauty destinations worldwide. Oh, and guess what!? It’s available in GelColor, too!
