OPI Serena Williams Grand Slam - Spark de Triomphe and White Shatter Swatches and Review

  Phew, that is a long post title!  Today I want to share with you one of the new OPI Serena Williams collaborations - a duo of a gorgeous glitter and white shatter.  This and another duo coincide with the French Open

  The base polish in this duo is Spark de Triomphe, which has got to be one of the more amazing glitter polishes I have seen in awhile!  Here is three coats for full coverage (click to see detail):

Outdoors, full sun
  This glitter bomb is packed with both silver and gold glitter in various shapes and sizes, giving this an amazing effect.  I wore this for a full manicure for several days and I have to say, I felt like I had jewel encrusted nails!  The overall effect of the gold and silver combination is more of a neutral champagne color, very classy.  I got quite a lot of compliments on this one!  Application was typical for a dense glitter - quick to dry, but you can accidentally push the glitter around if you don't give it enough time in between coats.  Dries with a bit of a gritty surface but a layer or two of top coat should take care of that if it bothers you.  Removal was a bit of a pain, as it is with all dense glitters - I highly recommend the foil method!

Outdoors, shade
  Now on to the shatter combination!  Spark de Triomphe is paired with White Shatter.  I feel like the colors do go together rather nicely, however it's a bit sad to cover up the amazingness that is Spark de Triomphe.  A nice combination, but I have a feeling I will be much more likely to use White Shatter over something else, and let Spark de Triomphe stand alone as a polish.

  Overall Review:  Spark de Triomphe is a must have, and White Shatter is a great basic shatter color to add to your collection if you like the shatter look.  I would definitely recommend picking this one up!
