The final installment of the Serena Williams Glam Slam! series- Glam Slam! United States. If you ask me, this is the greatest duo yet. They seem to have saved the best for last!
Love Is A Racket. This color was impossible to photograph properly. It just wanted to look all radioactive glowy and freak out my camera. That's because it really is a little radioactive-glowy. It's a super fun bright coral glass fleck. My picture doesn't capture even half of its beauty; you simply must see it in person. It's more of a coral-magenta than the red OPI classifies it as and it's full of shiny little pearls of duochrome shimmer. It dries a little dull so I'm thinking there's a little neon pigment in this making it so bright.
Pros & Bronze. This... This is just too good. I mean, look at it. It's insane! It's a foily-duochrome-glitter. The base is a light golden bronze foil particle shimmer. Overlaid on the bronze is rose gold duochrome sparkle. There's some dark copper microglitter and there's some pink and yellow duochrome flash on top of that. It's bright, it's shiny, it's sparkly. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best polishes OPI has done in the past few years. It has everything going for it- unique color, stunning microglitter finish, good formula. It is perfect.
The formula on these was good. A little thinner than the polishes in the Touring America collection, but still easy to control. I did three coats of each color. They looked fine with only two but an extra coat gives them more of a kick. Fast dry time. No issues here.
I think these are awesome. They make up for the lack of sparkle in the main fall collection. Love them both and I couldn't have asked for a better end to the Glam Slam! series. I'm even thinking about getting a backup of Pros and Bronze. It's that good. And hey.... No more crackle polish! Great color choices, good formula... I'm having a hard time finding any downside to this duo.
