Serena Williams " Glam Slam " Nail Polish by OPI | Review + Swatches

OPI, the world’s leading professional nail care company, partners with tennis superstar, Serena Williams, to launch the Glam Slam collection. Timed in conjunction with the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, the Glam Slam collection will introduce two new Nail Lacquers at the start of each tournament.

Beginning with the Australian Open, the first shades to be released under the collaboration will include Simply Smashing, a glowing green Nail Lacquer, paired with a revolutionary new product, Black Shatter™. Once applied to the dried Nail Lacquer, the product begins to disappear, leaving behind a leopard print-style pattern on each nail.

“Everyone knows that I’ve always loved fashion and design, but they might not know that I’m manic about my nails. That’s why I’m super excited to partner with OPI to create my Glam Slam Collection. And on top of that, I am well on my way to receiving my nail technician license. Working with OPI is really a dream come true.” - Serena Williams

Simply Smashing
A glowing green/gold with shimmer

Black Shatter
A deep, asphalt black with a " shattered" texture

Glow: I've truly fallen in love with both of these polishes as a pair. While the Shimmery green/gold is beautiful worn alone, the black shatter polish transforms your nails into a glitzy & unique design. They definitely compliment one another. I was really amazed while watching the polish shatter & crackle within seconds. It also dries with a matte finish.

Glare: The only thing I noticed is that the black shatter does take a bit longer to dry completely. I didn't use a top coat so I'll see if that makes a different next time.

Would I Recommend It? Yes!!  You can get salon nails at home, complete with a design! There's nothing I like more than a Do It Yourself manicure :o)

Overall Glam: The Glam Slam collection will be introduced in pairs of two complementary hues that coincide with each of the four major tournaments, beginning with the Australian Open in January 2011, and will include launches in May 2011 for the French Open, June 2011 for Wimbledon and August 2011 for the US Open.

The Glam Slam Collection by OPI will be available beginning January 2011, with subsequent launches in May, June and August. Suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer is $8.50 . For more information, please visit www.opi.com
