Nail Polish Collection Review: OPI Burlesque Shimmers

Looking to add a little glitz and glamour to your life? You really can't go wrong with the OPI Burlesque Shimmer 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. I've already brought you the Glitters (click here for a recap), so now it's on to the Shimmers! Check them all out after the jump.

Unlike the Glitters part of the collection, which I found to be quite difficult to apply and had nowhere near enough pigment, the Shimmers really applied beautifully. Each is seen here with two coats, no base coat or top coat. These colors are definitely perfect for the holiday season!

The Show Must Go On
Such an amazing candy apple red that's just packed with shimmer and glimmer! I love the berry undertones.
Tease-Y Does It
This is my absolute favorite of the collection. The deep blackened purple makes an unbelievably strong statement, especially with the magenta shimmer.
Take The Stage
I love the burnished orange, although I definitely don't think this is a good color for my skin tone.
Rising Star
As with Take The Stage, I don't think this color is great for my skin tone, but I do love it. The mustard yellow gold is definitely different from others I have in my collection, and I love the tone on tone shimmer.
Let Me Entertain You
This polish was difficult to capture on film, but in person it's an absolutely gorgeous deepened raspberry with magenta and purple undertones.
Ali's Big Break
This one was also a bit difficult to capture on film -- in person, it's a deeper crimson with gold-flecked shimmer. It's pretty, but not anything I haven't seen before.

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