Review and swatches: OPI Burlesque

By  | 

Maestra kindly allowed me to swatch her OPI Burlesque polishes. :rose:

OPI Burlesque by Parokeets

OPI Burlesque: Glow Up Already!, Show It & Glow It!, Tease-y Does It

Glow Up Already! and Show It & Glow It! are very, very shiny polishes. But my camera apparently decided to protect my eyes from all that light, so I’m afraid you’ll have to imagine all that sparkle coming from them. :blush:

Surprisingly I loved Glow Up Already! more than Show It & Glow It! shade. Color looks a little bit funky in the bottle, but I loved it on nails. I already warned Maestra I’ll be borrowing this shade. :angel:

Detail where you can see glitter in hexagonal shape. You can not actually  see the glitter in the manicure, sparkle is to strong. :biggrin:

With Show It & Glow It! shade the main color is pinkish-violet. I find it a little bit too cool, so it’s not on my wish list. Just like previous shade, SIGI is also very dazzling polish.

The last one is the reason why I wanted to swatch Maestras polishes in the first place. Tease-y Does It is the member of vampy shades community with visible glitter/shimmer. And I LOVE those kind of shades. This dark reddish-brown polish with purplish shimmer is no exception. :wub:

I was a little bit surprised with duochrome effect that is seen in the bottle but it does not transfer onto the nails.

OPI Burlesque - Tease-Y Does It duochrome

Since it looks really similar to Nubar Raspberry Truffle I already have, I wondered just how much alike are they. Judge for yourself:

Comparison: OPI Burlesque Tease-Y Does It vs. Nubar Raspberry Truffle swatch

Can you tell them apart? :silly:

Nubar is the one applied in the middle (ring finger) and it looks dupe for Tease-y Does It or better jet Tease-y Does It is the dupe for Raspberry Truffle. You can even see the similar duochrome effect in Nubar bottle. Staying power is good with both polishes – very slight tip wear after two days.

Removing glittery polishes was a little bit more difficult as you can imagine, while Tease-y Does It was not problematic.

We got the polishes from Za piko na i store where they sell the whole Burlesque collection.

Which one is your favorite from Burlesque collection?

    OPI kolekcija, ki me je pustila čisto hladno. Malce je srce pomigalo ob dveh, treh barvah, vendar samo shimmerjih, zdaj pa si me še potolažila, da je Tease-y does it dupe Nubarja in tako lahko mirno preskočim komplet kolekcijo. Glitter mi je prehud v takile izvedbi, rdečkoti, razen enega, čisto nič izvirni … eh, čakam na naslednjo OPIjevo kolekcijo, ni bati, da ne bom zapravila denarja za kakšen drug lak medtem. :wink:

      OPI zadnje čase daje ven toliko nekih kolekciji, da že komaj spremljam. Če se prav spomnim, me glede na promo fotke ni hudo navdušila nobena izmed prihodnjih izdaj. :think:

        Se strinjam, saj to me skrbi. :( Zdajle imam prečudovit lak na sebi iz India kolekcije in se prav sprašujem, kje so ti biseri, ki so jih znali ustvariti. Tale s Kate Perry ali kako ji je že ime, pa potem še en dečko in Serena Williams kolekcije so vse za moj okus slabe. Gojim upanje za spomladansko kolekcijo.

    It’s a pity Teas-y does it isn’t a duochrome, it looks gorgeous in the bottle :(

    • Gejba

      November 28, 2010 at 14:28

      I wonder how come the duochrome is so strong in the bottle and nonexistent on the nails. :think:

    Divni swatchevi… :wub:   Ja sam uzela Show it and glow it i isto mi nije baš sjeo. Puno više volim Mad as a Hatter iako su na istu foru. Tease-y mi je divan ali imam već Nubar.

    • Gejba

      November 26, 2010 at 14:13

      Ako imaš jednog, drugog stvarno ne trebaš. Ja uopće nisam vidjela razlike. :undecided:

    Tease-y Does It! mene podseća na Collistar Melanzana glitter, zato mi se najviše i dopada od ova tri :)

    • Gejba

      November 26, 2010 at 14:10

      Toga nemam, tako da ne znam koliko su slični. Ali mi je definitivno to najljepši lak u kolekciji. :wub:

    Glow Up Already! Ne mogu ga prestat gledat! Upravo sam panično zvala frendicu da joj ga linkam jer ovo je nešto presavršeno!!!!
    A tebe ću zadavit! lli prestani birat tako dobre lakove (do 1.2.) ili prestani lakirat nokte! Meni je svejedno, samo me nemoj dovodit u napast!

    • Gejba

      November 26, 2010 at 14:07

      Čekaj da razmislim … ima još dobrih lakova na listi do 1.12. :haha:

      Ti samo lijepo dodaj sve na WL, a onda si priušti sve kao novogodišnji poklon.  :silly:

        hahaha! sad sam se prebacila na opasno žicanje! večeras sa dobila novi essencov iz LE, ovaj sam poslala prijateljici na popis,… a 1.2. ću robit sve moguće trgovine!
         
        samo mi je teško gledati ih!
