OPI - The Burlesque Collection

I had a quick glance at these a couple of months ago and didn't realise at the time that I was staring at the new OPI collection, being released for Christmas 2010. The Burlesque collection is inspired by the upcoming film of the same name, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher. 

There are 12 shades, six shimmers and six glitters which which land on shelves in October

Top Row (L-R)

1. Shimmer and Glimmer - A glitter bit of blue
2. Show It & Glow It - Flaunt this pink glitter
3. Sparkle-iscious - Multi-colour glitter-liciousness!
4 Let Me Entertain You - Multi-talented fuchsia glimmer
5. Ali's Big Break - A glowing red shimmer
6. Tease-y Does It - A tempting burgundy shimmer

Bottom Row (L-R)

1. Bring On the Bling - A gold glitter that's beyond dazzling
2. Glow Up Already! - A glittering green
3. Extra-va-vaganza! - This orange glitter is not for the shy
4. Rising Star - Lustrous glimmering gold
5. The Show Must Go On - Deep pink shimmer

I had a look through the dozens of pictures stashed on my laptop and came across these pictures (I knew I'd papped something OPI related that day) which show how some of the shades 'look in real life'.

I'm not a huge fan of glitter polishes, simply because I don't find them the easiest formula to take off when I fancy a polish change. Still, some of these shades do look pretty and I'm curious to see what Tease-y Does It (A tempting burgundy shimmer) looks like though, so I'll be keeping an eye on nail blogs for swatches. 

These polishes were made for the festive season, where glitter and shimmer is heartily indulged in and worn morning, noon and night by some individuals.

You can find the OPI Burlesque collection at www.lenawhite.co.uk for £9.95 each

I'm not a huge fan of glittery nail polishes either. However, I would be interested to see the swatches, especially for Tease-y Does It! It looks like a *gulp* wintery shade. x

HOLY COW!! I went to a hole in the wall beauty supply store last week and they had the display for the new OPI out. I hadn't seen anything about the collection yet and I couldn't get over it! Lucky day! I picked up Tease-y does it and Let Me Entertain You. Ali was sold out! Both of the colors are flat out gorgeous!! Tease-y can be best described as Confetti's Masquerade Ball with a lot of reddish burgundy shimmer. It's a rich color that I have nothing like. I liked all the colors except I wish they had Ali. It looks from the pic like it may dupe MAC Bad Fairy. I'm glad OPI came out with a collection that doesn't have another boring red!!

The last two polishes in the last picture look just like the two new shades from MACs Venomous Villains collection!

I can't wait to get my haul of these in....I've come down with serious glitter fever and I just can't seem to get enough of them. I NEVER used to wear glitter, bit these are seriously appetising :-)

Sharon said...

very pretty colours..I need these lol

I love OPI!!! I love glitter and yes it is a pain to get off! I made the mistake of putting glitter nail polish from Sephora on a bare nail no base, no polish and it took weeks to get it off...no amount of acetone was moving that!

Justme said...

Ahh I don't like glitters either for the exact same reason, but that won't stop me from buying these.

Imo said...

where can I buy these from? the sparkly glittery ones would be great for the holidays
