OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Happy Monday! I cannot figure out how a 4 day weekend flew by so quickly, but I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday! Today I have the OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight collection to share with you. This collection has a nice mix of shades and finishes as well as some hits and some misses for me. There are 18 shades total, so this will be a photo heavy post.

Also, I apologize for my cuticles, especially in the up close photos. I know it’s not appealing. We’re setting up for tax season at work and opening a lot of boxes and then I was assaulting my cuticles all week with remover (over 100 polishes swatched in the last 4 days) so they’ve seen better days. But trying to stay on target for releases, the show must go on.

Let’s get to it!

Love Is In My Cards

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Love Is In My Cards Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Love Is In My Cards Swatch

OPI Love Is In My Cards is a perfect red holiday creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

OPI Ro-man-ce On The Moon

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Ro-man-ce On The Moon Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Ro-man-ce On The Moon Swatch

Ro-man-ce On The Moon is probably my favorite red of the collection. This is a medium cherry red with dazzling shimmer within it to give it a glowy look but also makes it look borderline metallic. I used 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

By The Light Of The Moon

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection By The Light Of The Moon Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection By The Light Of The Moon Swatch

OPI By The Light Of The Moon is a silver metallic base with silver hex glitter mixed in. The hex glitters are swallowed up by the base, but still can be seen (at least shapewise) in the final manicure. Not my style of polish, but OPI keeps making them, so they must be doing ok. This is the 3rd or 4th variation of it released this year. Keep scrolling a bit though, they also did this with bar glitter.

Guys & Galaxies

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Guys & Galaxies Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Guys & Galaxies Swatch

OPI Guys & Galaxies is the perfect oxblood creme shade. Formula was a touch thin and I needed 3 coats for it, but I think this color is worth it. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat. Below I used a matte top coat and LOVED it that way.

OPI Is This Star Taken? is a metallic gold base with silver holographic bar glitter mixed in. I just can’t get into this style, but OPI keeps making metallic and glitter combination, I used 2 coats for these photos.

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Meteorite Swatch

Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Meteorite is a glitter topper with charcoal diamonds, rose gold chevrons (or what are suppose to be chevrons I think?) and small silver and rose gold hex glitters mixed in. I used 1 coat over OPI Guys & Galaxies.

Press * For Silver

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Press * For Silver Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Press * For Silver Swatch

Press * For Silver is difficult for me to put my finger on colorwise. It’s a bit stronger than a champagne metallic, but not quite a rose gold. I used 2 coats and no top coat for these photos.

No More Mr Night Sky

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI No More Mr Night Sky Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI No More Mr Night Sky Swatch

OPI No More Mr Night Sky is a sheer charcoal grey with a light lilac and silver micro fleck shimmer mixed in. This was really sheer and shown is 3 coats and it’s still not opaque.

Infrared-y To Glow

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI Infrared-y To Glow Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI Infrared-y To Glow Swatch

OPI Infrared-y To Glow is a pink and copper chevron glitter topper with silver holographic hex glitters mixed in. The chevron glitters aren’t evenly cut in length or thickness, and I think that’s what the shape is. I used 1 coat over OPI I’m In The Moon For Love.

Super Star Status

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI Super Star Status Swatch

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection OPI Super Star Status Swatch

OPI Super Star Status is a silver and gold glitter topper. The small glitters are primarily silver microglitters and then small gold and silver hex glitters are mixed in. I used 2 coats on it’s own and quite like it this way, but you can also add a little glitz to a creme as well by using it as a top coat.

OPI Holiday 2015 Starlight Collection Overview

Cover

It’s a lot of photos, I know – but great job hanging in there. First of all, I apologize again for the ragged cuticles and I bought new cotton balls on Amazon which left behind a lot more fibers than I am use to, so I won’t be doing that again. Now onto the important stuff. Do I like this collection? About half of it gets a thumbs up from me. The other half I could do without. Some shades like Give Me Space and Cosmo With A Twist got me excited, but then shades like Is This Star Taken? and By The Light Of The Moon made me shake my head. I felt this collection was very red and metallic heavy. I like the metallic glitters, but I could take or leave the metallic polishes. The names were great, in my opinion, and as I said, I really only liked about half of this collection.

Now please OPI – stop with the metallic bases drowning out hex and bar glitter and bring in some more shades like Give Me Space!

Price: $9.50 retail 

WHERE TO FIND THEM:  ULTA, ULTA.com, and select professional salons.

What did you think of this collection? Did you like it? Are you happy to see so many metallics? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!

Love that nail art! I have had the worst time ordering any of these polishes. I ordered Cosmo with a Twist from Ulta and got Guys and Galaxies instead – Twice. Then, I tried ordering Center of the Universe from Macy’s and got By The Light Of The Moon instead. I did manage to get Give Me Space, and it’s gorgeous.

My sentiments exactly. I love the shimmers and the microglitters but those metallic based glitters…no thanks. They look so interesting in the bottle that I am sure it will trick people into buying them .

I think Comet Closer has to be my favorite!

How is it possible to have so many really good ones and so many really bad ones all in one single Holiday Collection? #19 was probably almost “OPI Suzi Made Too Many Polishes”, but it got canned at the last minute.
