Hi everyone!! Welcome, new readers, whether you're here because of the giveaway or because you happened upon la blog and liked it enough to follow, I'm glad you're here and I hope you stick around :)
Day 5 in my 12 Days of Christmas Nails spectacular is two polishes from OPI's holiday 2010 Burlesque collection, Take the Stage, a warm, bright, shimmery, red-toned copper metallic, and Extra-Va-Vaganza, a twinkly silver, orange, and light blue glitter topper. I was soooo in love with this collection when it was introduced and I allowed myself only two, but I wish I'd have lived a little dangerously and picked up more, lol. I still think it's one of the best holiday collections ever, even with three similarly toned copper foils in my stash. Apparently, I like this color, and I adore this duo! This was my first experience with glitter and I have to admit I was fascinated (though not with the removal process... I remember first putting this on my toes and being rather horrified at how hard it was to take off, lol).
It's taken this long to convince me that glitters and metallics are meant to be together. ♥♥ The copper of Take the Stage is definitely more of a fall color but the confetti silver with a splash of blue glitter of Extrava-Va-Ganza makes this a festive and non color-traditional holiday look.
So I might be becoming obsessed with hunting the rest of Burlesque down! I'm sure there are, especially with the indie boom, lots of similar glitters, and certainly similar metallics, but this collection holds a special, unexplainable nostalgia for me.
Thank you for reading and have a loverly day!! ♥♥
