Sephora by OPI Tinseltown Swatches, Day 3!

Time for day 3 of the Sephora by OPI Tinseltown swatches!

Here are the next four polishes from the collection! :)

First up is "Justa' Pinch Of Glitter"
I love this one so much! Basically any glitter is instant love for me, but this one's actually pretty unique! I think it's safe to say I've never had a glitter like this one before. It's made up of a clear base with black and silver micro glitters, with larger silver glitters. The mix of black and silver gives it this really pretty gunmetal quality, and I love it! If I'd named it I probably would've named it "Gunmetal Glitter!" :p
It has a wonderful formula, good drying time, not gloopy at all like some glitters tend to be, little to no "glitter placement" is needed (you don't have to fish around in the bottle to get the larger glitters, they come naturally on the brush and brush on your nail easily) and it's very easy to customize how much glitter you want. Like, say you want just a pinch of glitter (heh? See what I did there? ;D) you just apply one thin coat, and looks even and not sparse at all like some glitters do. Then you just build up coats depending on how much coverage you want. My swatch here is 3 coats with no base color.
I could probably go on forever about this glitter, I love it! :)

Next up is "Just A Little Dangerous."
This is a beautiful deep, dark purple. In certain lighting it can look like a deep violet, while in other lighting it looks like a deep royal jewel-toned purple. I definitely love this one, it's so vampy, and I think it's a perfect fall color. Although you know me, I don't usually follow seasons much. I'll wear dark vampy colors in the middle of summer and bright yellow on Christmas, I don't care! :p
But, nevertheless, I still think it's a very good polish for fall. The formula's great, it's opaque within 2 coats, dries quickly, and leaves no staining like some dark pigmented polishes tend to. Definitely a good one!

Next up we have "I Don't Bite."
This is a beautiful lilac shimmer. This is another one that's fun to play with in the light, it's a lilac/lavender color, but when you move your hand around in the light you can see just a hint of violet in the shimmer. So pretty! Again, a wonderful formula, goes on well and dries quickly, and opaque within 3 coats. Love it! :)

And lastly, we have "Thyme For A Mani."
First off, can I just say how much I freakin' love that name? So fun and punny.
This is a light gray creme, and usually I don't like grays very much, I like the trend but I usually don't like them on myself with my very light (read: translucent) skin tone. But I have to say that I really actually like this one! It's got a nice color, and the formula really impressed me. This is like, the definition of a creme polish. So perfect. Opaque within 2-3 coats, dries quickly, and has that pretty natural shine (even without top coat!) that the really good cremes get. This polish may have converted me to a gray lover! :)

So that's it for today, come back tomorrow for the final four polishes, and then on Friday for the swatch of the full-size gold top coat! :)
