OPI Glam Slam! England: Review & Swatches

Greetings my lovelies ^_^ I'd love to show you the newest Serena Williams' Glam Slam! collection polishes, this time coinciding with the England tournament. There are three lacquers in the collection, sold in duo packs, each with the same glitter top coat and a different shimmer polish.

The first shimmer is Grape...Set...Match, a metallic purple with sparkle that just won't quit. I la la love the blue and sparse pink sparkles, and it has foil-like base goin on which I dig. This is two coats.

Your Royal Shine-Ness is nice, but the name is very similar to another OPI color (Your Royal Shyness from the Princess Charming collection) and the color is very dupe-able. Just saying. Other than that, it's an attractive metallic foil silver polish. I found the formula on this one a little gloopy. I seem to have trubs with super-metallics sometimes. This is two coats.

The glitter is pretty awesome, it's called Servin' Up Sparkle and it's a combo of billions of small holographic round glitters and scattered medium hex/round glitter pieces that are ALSO holographic. Dope. I like it best over Your Royal Shine-Ness. I've seen some awesome gradient effects already with this top coat too.

Over Grape...Set...Match it turns goes a bit south in my opinion. I think it makes the polish look more blurple (blue/purple), which on my skin tone looks super yuck-tastic. I'm sure though other folks will go gaga over it ;)

What is your take on this Glam Slam! set? Like it, love it, or hate it? I think Serena's colors are pretty fab for the most part. These I'm liking but as you can see, I'm not loving them super hard. Like we're dating, but I'm still seeing other polishes.
