OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Review Photos Swatches

The staying power, thickness and opacity can vary for each shade but most OPI nail lacquers are opaque in 2 coats. Speaking of staying power, I wish I could test all the shades but unfortunately I could only wear 5 of these nail lacquers so far. I simply couldn't wait any longer to post this review, most of these shades are still available for sale but I highly doubt that they will be around for much longer!

Guys & Galaxies is a deep burgundy with a creamy finish. I love this color, perfect for fall! The staying power is excellent as well, it began to chip after 6 days. (Scroll down to see this color on my nails!)

I'm in the Moon for Love is a plum with a slightly frosty finish. Another beautiful color, I like it because it's lighter than your typical purple or plum nail polish, which sometimes can look more black than purple.

Is this Star Taken? is a silver with holographic string glitters. The finish is a bit rough, but nothing I can't fix with some clear top coat. This photo doesn't do it any justice, it's such a pretty shade!

Ce-less-tial is More is a pinky silver with a glittery finish. It has a very gritty texture, if you prefer a smooth finish you may not like this one because even with 2 thick layers of top coat it's still not completely smooth. The staying power is decent, it began to chip after 2 days. (Scroll down to see this color on my nails!)

Super Star Status is a silver with a glittery finish. It has the same gritty texture than Ce-less-tial is More, so you won't like it either if you prefer a smooth finish.

Cosmo with a Twist is a deep indigo with shimmers that shifts from blue to purple. This is my favorite shade, so pretty! I noticed some minimal tip wear on the fourth day after application, but it only began to chip after 6 days. (Scroll down to see this color on my nails!)

Give Me Space is a navy blue with a shimmery, slightly holographic finish. This is a gorgeous blue but the formula is a bit thick and can be challenging to brush on precisely. The staying power is great, I noticed one small chip on the second day but the other nails looked great until the fourth day. (Scroll down to see this color on my nails!)

Center of the You-niverse is a soft black with small silver glitters. The finish feel a bit rough to the touch, but it doesn't bother me.

No More Mr. Night Sky is a gunmetal silver with a shimmery finish. I wore this nail polish for Christmas, but forgot to take a photo while it was on my nails. This one is a bit sheer compared to most OPI nail lacquers but the staying power is amazing, I wore it a full week and only had minimal tip wear!

Love is in My Cards is a classic red with a creamy finish. This color is very smooth and rich!

Let Your Love Shine is a dark red with a shimmery finish. I love this one, it's my favorite red from this collection.

Ro-Man-ce on the Moon is a cherry red with a slightly frosty finish. This red is a bit sheer so I recommend to apply 3 coats instead of 2, especially if you have long nails.

Comet Closer is a golden silver with a sparkly finish. As you can see, it has some golden undertones compared to a true silver like I Drive a SuperNova. This is my favorite silver of the whole collection, it's more flattering on my golden complexion!

I Drive a SuperNova is a metallic silver. Be careful with this one, it can get streaky easily. This is the only shade that was almost completely opaque with only one coat!

By the Light of the Moon is a frosty silver with different sizes of glitters. I don't like this shade, most of the glitters gets lost in the base and it looks like a mess on my nails.

If I could only keep 2 shades, it would be Cosmo with a Twist and Guys & Galaxies! Both shades are beautiful, the formula is perfect and the staying power is incredible. 

The OPI Nail Lacquers retail for $12.50 CAD for 15ml.
