OPI Spotlight on Glitter Swatches, Part 2!

I have the rest of the OPI Spotlight on Glitter polishes for you today! This first one turned out to be a combo I really loved, OPI Desperately Seeking Sequins over OPI Thanks a Windmillion! So cute! Desperately Seeking Sequins has silver holo hex glitter, tiny silver holo bar glitter, and teeny silver sparkles in a clear base. I typically don't like bar glitter, but for some reason this didn't bother me. Maybe because they're so small.

This one was really easy to apply, this is one coat. The coverage was great and the glitter readily came out of the bottle. No problems here! Also, because the bar glitter is so small, it didn't hang over the edges of my nails either.

OPI I Reached My Gold! contains extra large gold hex glitter, small silver holo hex glitter and tiny silver holo glitter in a clear base. This is identical to OPI When Monkeys Fly, so it's really like a re-named re-release. I know some people missed out on that one, so here's your chance!

The best method for applying this is to just do one coat to get some of the smaller glitters on the nail and not even worry about the big hexes during this first coat. Then, I load the brush up and wipe the large gold hexes on to the neck of the bottle. Wipe all the excess base off of the brush, pick up the gold hexes one by one and apply to the nail. This sounds time consuming, but it isn't really. I think it's better than trying to get the glitter out by just applying coat after coat of the polish.

Finally, we have my favorite of this whole collection, OPI Blush Hour. I knew Blush Hour would be my favorite right from the promo pictures, it's also the most unique of the collection. Blush Hour has several different shades of pink glitter in a couple sizes and shapes, all in a pinky purple tinted jelly base. I layered it over OPI My Vampire Is Buff for this look, but it would definitely be great alone as well. Pink lovers will need this one!

This is just one coat of Blush Hour over My Vampire Is Buff. I think it would be perfect at three coats with no undies. It was very easy to apply, no dabbing or glitter placement needed.

Overall, my favorite is definitely Blush Hour. This collection has some nice choices for the glitter aficionado and for those who missed out on a couple of great OPI glitters from past collections. These swatches are all with OPI Glitter Off base coat and OPI top coat. Review of Glitter Off is up next!
