Howdy! Today we are gonna talk about 2 new awesome gifts sets that OPI is releasing for Holiday 2013. It's kind of scary how fast the holiday season is creeping up on us. I mean, it's almost Halloween and you know how everything just speeds up after that!
The first gift set is called Top This! and it features 3 full sized top coats; one 'regular' top coat, one matte top coat, and exclusive, *only available in this set* glitter top coat called Snowflakes In The Air :
First, here's the original OPI Top Coat over black (OPI Onyx):
Next, I did one layer of Snowflakes In The Air over black. This glitter topcoat has silver glitters in different sizes that flash a gorgeous, multi-colored sparkle when the light hits them just right:
And lastly, I topped 'Snowflakes...' with the OPI Matte Top Coat. OMG! I really am in love with this particular look. The matte top coat sort of tamed the mulit-colored-ness of the glitter, making them appear mostly plain silver. This is a really fun way to wear glitter:
The second gift set is called Take Ten and it features 10 mini sized polishes (now sporting mini Pro wide brushes for the first time) in classic, best selling OPI shades:
The top row has all the soft, neutral tones (colors are Pirouette My Whistle; Alpine Snow; Bubble Bath; Tickle My France-y; and You Don't Know Jacques), while the bottom row includes some darks and reds (Cajun Shrimp; Big Apple Red; Malaga Wine; Lincoln Park After Dark). OPI really thought of everything with this set and they even gave you the option of separating the packs for easy gift giving- both sets can be removed separately:
Because I've already swatched a majority of these polishes on my blog in the past, I didn't swatch them this time around. (Hint: Top Ten may pop up in a giveaway very, very soon! Be on the look out!)
