OPI – Swiss Collection, Glitzerland NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 17 - 2010

Originally, I only wanted Diva of Geneva.. but I kept seeing tantalising swatches of Glitzerland that made me think what a wonderful Christmas polish this would be… and that just perhaps, it wouldn’t be too warm toned for my skin.

I was right!

The formula is good, not too thick nor too thin and 2 coats are fine for a quick polish.  I did three for a perfect finish.

Super sparkly, Glitzerland is a proper ‘hey look at my nails’ shade.  I kept admiring and angling them against the light to view the individual sparkles that combine to create a lovely foiled finish.

Cool-toned ladies… this is a gold you can wear.  Very pale and as subtle as gold can be!

Love.

    I do think that OPI do some of the best subtle shimmery colours – this is very nice.

  6. Gorgeous <3 I love that it is a little taupe-y opposed to true yellow or coppery gold

  7. That is such a stunning shade on you and I think it’ll be a good one for me too so thanks for the post xx
