So I admit it; I shared my favorite colors with you last time, but here are some shots of the over major colors. These are indoor shots as opposed to those in broad daylight, but I am intending to show how they show up under office / home lighting. They are actually quite similar (in any light!) but the subtle differences are visible when in close proximity: OPI Show Must Go On. The pinkest of the bunch, this very true dark pink is a beautiful color. Not as purple as the fuscia OPI Let Me Entertain You, this pink is spunky but classy, featuring a dark pink shimmer for interest, but an overall bold color appropriate for the business woman and party girl alike. Compare the pink above with this deep red, OPI Ali's Big Break. Even though there is a slight pink hue to this crimson shade, Ali's Big Break is a true red, beautiful with any skin tone and a truly sexy color! The truest orange we've seen from OPI in some time! OPI Take the Stage is a beautiful, bold orange shimmer, not bright orange or neon orange, nor burnt or smokey. A gorgeous warm color, more red than yellow featuring perfect gold sparkles, Take the Stage is a great color for any one and any occasion! Here's a closer comparison of these colors to help you see the subtle distinctions: Oh- and by reader demand- here are two of the other glitter polishes. These are terribly un-photogenic. Like diamonds, these chunky polishes can't quite handle a camera's flash. But this will give you an idea of the subtle color differences between them. OPI Simmer & Shimmer (blue on the left) and OPI Glow Up Already (green on the right). Again, sorry for the odd lighting, but these things are out of control sparkly- I hope you can see it!
