OPI Starlight Collection

**press sample **

"OPI Starlight brings a constellation of color to nails and toes just in time for the holidays! This new collection of 18 limited-edition nail lacquers ($9.50 each at Ulta.com) send style into the stratosphere with hues as glittery as the night sky, as deep as space itself, and as riveting as a romance written in the stars. They are also available in the GelColors formula!"

I don't have to add as these pretties speak for themselves, as it is usual with OPI.  Here are my favorites in no particular order

The name of this shimmery purple hue is just like me, I'm in the Moon for Love, and it surely brings you to the moon and back as you stare at the sky purple shimmer.

A holiday collection is not complete without the staple reds -

Ro-Man-ce on the Moon, a shimmery deep red sure to highlight the romance on any holiday date to the moon or whatever love may bring you on a given day or night ;)

Love is in my Cards, although not on mine, this bright red carries you through any season.

and the classic vampy red, Guys & Galaxies, good luck with that one as for the color, it's a classic staple.

The next few, glistens and glitters:

Is This Star Taken?  The hardest to photograph and the easiest to love.  This is a gold-ish base with rainbow glitter bars.  If the star happens to be taken, try to join in and share in the love.  Do NOT miss out on this one.

I Drive a SuperNova (silver) and Comer Closer (gold) are surely the ones to take you on an intergalactic polish trip together or independently.

Super Star Status: Is THE super star of the collection,  A rich glitter polish with micro round silver glitter for added bling.  Use alone, layer or as a topper and shine!

 photo OPI-6_zpsbjhdkv9x.jpg 

Center of the You-niverse.  A classic charcoal, slightly textured with micro gold shimmer.

Cosmo With a Twist:
It's a visit to the cosmos indeed.  Galaxy nails background? go ahead! 
The perfect night sky on a dreamy holiday night!

And drooool!!!!!! If I had the difficult task of having to choose one, I would pick Give Me Space.  Although the name and the shade makes this a nail polish oxymoron.  I can't get enough of this.

Stay tuned for more on this collection.
The collection is breath taking.

I couldn't decide where to start so I uploaded these pretties at random and here's what randomizer picked for you.

First up is Coal Hands, Warm Heart:  is a black jelly filled with multi-color hex glitters

Brand Sparking New Year:  yet another jolly jelly in purple base with mixed glitters.

Ugly Sweater Party : Pink jelly with glitters, hold it in your treasure drawer and wear it again in the spring.  It suits cold weather and nice weather as well.

I Soiree I Didn't Do It : Christmas tree green glitter.  Add a third coat and watch it bling and shine outdoors.

Wine Down For That:  Need I describe?? I'm down for wine and for this red red wine, vampy shade with a coat  of Bring on the Bubbly (right) and just bring the wine, because the party is on!

Mix and Mingle:  Holiday party purple crelly companion.

Peppermint to Be : Season perfect and not your typical Christmas red with a beautiful shimmer.

 photo China Glaze Cheers-11_zps8bxc6pjz.jpg

Don't Get Elfed Up : You can't elf this beauty up, grab your bubbly drink and let the micro glitter shimmer.

 photo China Glaze Cheers-12_zpseb7zhi7k.jpg  

Son of a Nutcracker : My favorite name and shade.  It's a bright pink with redish hue.   Sure to spike up your "regular" holiday shades and spike up your eggnog while at it. ;) 

 photo China Glaze Cheers-7_zpsp4tbn038.jpg 

and lastly, Better Not Pout with a coat of Break the Ice.  Hot pink with a metallic finish and odd-sized glitter over a clear base.  Perfect pair? I'd say so.
