This year’s OPI celebrity holiday collaboration is with the one and only Gwen Stefani. The collection is in 2 parts; a 12 piece holiday collection and a 6 piece nail effects collection. I picked up First Class Desires from the holiday collection and LOVED it. But I have to say, Comet In The Sky from the nail effects part of the collaboration is even better as it is a truly unique polish.
OPI’s description of Comet in the Sky is nothing but creative:
Iridescent beams and midnight black create cosmic art in this glitter.
But that certainly doesn’t tell the whole story! Comet in the Sky has small and large black glitter, as well as small and large iridescent glitter all suspended in a clear base.
If a polish has black glitter I’m sold. But the addition of the iridescent glitter works so well with the black glitter. I just love it.
I’ve used this over several polishes (Comet in the Sky is strictly a top coat) and I really loved it over deborah lippmann Chasing Pavements and OPI Brand New Skates. I am not a fan of this over a dark base.
There are SO MANY swatches under the jump.
Comet in the Sky is available at Ulta.

Before I start I want to say that, yes, I understand this is marketed as a top coat. But it’s such a waste to use this polish as a top coat! The NYC Rock Muse Smoky Top Coat has been released several times in different limited edition displays. This time it was part of their […] Continue reading →
Essie’s winter 2014 collection is all about celebrating the holidays. For the most part I found the polishes in this collection to be a bit generic. But the namesake polish, Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low, caught my eye. Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is a metallic platinum with gold glitter. This polish is GORGEOUS and great for […] Continue reading →
Hello, Hello! Halloween is just around the corner – horray! You have less than a week to finalize those costume plans! I have to admit, I’m not much of a costume kind of person – it’s just not my thing. I do, however, like to embrace the holiday in more subtle ways – like on […] Continue reading →
Every year around Halloween I make it a point to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s a wonderful movie from the story to the music to the animation. Plus, the nostalgic aspect of the film cannot be ignored; it was a favorite of mine as a child. So, when I saw Sally Hansen had a […] Continue reading →
I adore Halloween. But sometimes I get tired of all the orange and black. Since I’m having a serious love affair with Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low I wanted to do an understated Halloween manicure using Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low as the base color. Nothing says Halloween like a jack-0′-latern. But I kept it simple […] Continue reading →
We all know I have a minor freak out when black glitter is involved in a nail polish. I adore black glitter so I was pretty excited about the glitters from SinfulColors’ Halloween 2014 Wicked Color collection. SinfulColors describes Splatter Spell as gilded black flecks. While that description is super creative it doesn’t tell the […] Continue reading →
NYC has been killing it lately in the nail polish department! I absolutely love their Fashion Queen collection that is out right now (which included NY Princess and Blue Majesty). And while I am not affRED is entirely different from those polishes it is no less impressive. I am not affRED is from NYC’s Halloween […] Continue reading →
Generally I’m not the biggest fan of OPI’s Designer Series polishes. The$12.50 price tag isn’t justified in most cases. But I was looking at the two new additions to the DS line; Tourmaline and Titanium and when I saw Titanium, I had to have it; expensive or not! Titanium, as described by OPI, is a […] Continue reading →
With Halloween just around the corner Halloween collections are out in force! This, of course, thrills me greatly simply because there is nothing better than Halloween. Sally Hansen released 4 Halloween themed Insta-Dri polishes; Pumpkin Queen, Scaredy Matte, Omghost and Night Fright. Pumpkin Queen is the perfect pumpkin orange creme. And the formula is perfect […] Continue reading →
