NOTD: OPI Rising Star

Hello there,

I recently shaped my nails into a more square shape - they're like squoval now and as soon as they've grown a bit I'll finally file them square. Hope that way they won't tear as easily. Anyway, this will be the last mani with my "old" oval nails. Today's NOTD is OPI Rising Star from their Holiday 2010 Burlesque collection. When a local perfumery had them on sale I couldn't help but get the entire collection and Rising Star is the first polish I tried.

Rising Star is a very warm copper polish with lots of gold sparkles in it. I really like its finish. When the sun hits it right, it flashes golden! It went on flawlessly and since it's richly pigmented, I only needed two coats to get it opaque. Afterwards I applied one layer of top coat. As all OPIs I have tried so far, it really wore well and lasted four days without chipping and only minimal tipwear. On day four I wanted to spice up the mani a little and added one coat of Glow Up Already but since I did not like the combo, I took it off again.

Rising Star really makes me looking forward to the rest of the Burlesque collection! What is your favorite of this collection? Have you done any layerings with the glitters?

Thanks for stopping by!
- Sabine
