Nail Polish Collection Review: OPI Burlesque Glitters

Looking to add a little glitz and glamour to your life? You really can't go wrong with the OPI Burlesque Glitter Collection. If you're like me, you simply can't wait for Burlesque to come out -- any movie with Cher and Christina Aguilera, not to mention what seems to be a mashup of Glitter meets Showgirls -- promises to be pretty amazingly spectacular.

OPI's holiday collection consists of two parts -- Glitters and Shimmers -- and I'll be bringing all twelve colors to you in two separate reviews. First up? The Glitters, of course! Check them all out after the jump.

While I love the colors in this collection, I will say this -- they are extremely difficult to remove! I had glitter EVERYWHERE every time I took one off, and that was after soaking them in nail polish remover for a few minutes each. They also definitely need at least two coats to build to partially opaque, though I found that even three coats didn't really become truly opaque. One coat will be fairly sheer with small particles of glitter while three will be close to opaque.

This one is my favorite of the bunch. I love the rainbow-colored mix of glitter -- it looks like every color imaginable has been packed into the formula.
Simmer & Shimmer
I have to say I wanted more from this turquoise polish. The color was just so glorious in the bottle -- and I knew it would apply sheer, but I just wish it made a bit more dramatic of an impact.
Show It And Glow It!
I'm having a purple moment, so this polish definitely spoke to me. I love the multitude of silver sparkles wedged in between the purple glitter.
Glow Up Already!
A greenish gold merges with red in this polish, which definitely makes it interesting. I would definitely paint this one over other colors to add visual interest.
While orange isn't my favorite color -- I just don't love the way it looks on my skin -- I really do love this shade. It's a melding of burnt orange meets sienna that makes me feel like I just dug into my old Crayola 64 box of crayons.
Bring On The Bling
There's really no better name for a sparkly gold polish, is there? I actually had the least amount of application issues with this one -- and I'm always in the mood for a bold gold!

You can find the OPI Burlesque collection at Each polish retails for $9.99.
