I realized today that although I do post glitters more often than not I haven’t posted JUST a glitter, you know the full coverage type. Maybe I prefer wearing them in colder months or maybe I’ve just slowed down the glitter fest. So I grabbed an oldie and went to swatching. My glitter of choice was OPI Extra-va-vaganza (gaaaah I hate this name!..keep wanting to say “Extra-vagina” lol). Anyways.. Extra-va-VAGANZA is from OPI’s Holiday 2010 Burlesque Collection.
Extra-va-vaganza is a dominantly coppery orange glitter accented with a rainbow of multi colored glitter. This polish is versatile since its not too dense on the first coat so you can easily use it as a top coat or do a full coverage mani. If you go full coverage 2-3 coats will suffice, I used 2 for the following pictures.
The Burlesque Collection is pretty hard to find now. You can find some bottles on Ebay and maybe Amazon, but I really don’t think they’re around anywhere else unless you get lucky. I want to kick myself because I was looking at all of the glitters around last November on Amazon trying to decide which ones I wanted, but of course I decided to be good and backed away. Then they were all gone, but I luckily came across a random bottle of Extra-va-vaganza at CVS during a visit home for Thanksgiving. Does anyone else’s CVS have a tiny selection of random older OPI bottles? Its so weird…They’re a little overpriced, but in some situations worth it.
Did anyone even see the Burlesque movie? I had no interest in it when it came out, but I have seen bits of it when it plays on Starz…or Encore which ever of the two it is. Its horrible…BUT at least a collection of awesome glitters came out of it
