OPI Glam Slam! U.S. Open: Review & Swatches

I'm baaaaccckkk! Thank you again to all my friends for their contributions to my guest post series. I might have one or two every once in a while, just cause they were so fun! I wanted to come back with something special, so here is the last Serena Williams Glam Slam! duo, this time for the U.S. Open which is in a few days.

Love is a Racket is a glowy sparkly almost neon candy apple red glass fleck with magenta pink sparkles. I really love this color, however it's not my favorite with my skin tone. Oh well, I'll probably wear it anyway ;) It's a little hard to capture its brilliance in a photo, this is one you'll have to see in person to get the total feel. It's really bright outdoors but kind of fluorescent dark (if that makes any sense) indoors. It's even a little more coral indoors too. This is two coats, it's extremely pigmented. It reminds me a little of OPI Red Hot Glam, a limited edition polish exclusive to Beauty Brands store, darker and without the glass fleck.

My favorite, perhaps of all the Glam Slam! polishes, is Pros & Bronze. I have to say that I was not the least bit excited about this polish when I saw promo images. I was like, ugh really? I don't know why though, because it reminds me of another favorite of mine, OPI DS Glow. Anyway, once I saw it in person at CosmoProf I realized how wrong I was. It is just fascinating! It is made up of really gorgeous glitter in a metallic bronze and a metallic rose red. Both combine to make a complex and deep looking sexy orangey gold foil. This is three coats of ga ga gorgeousness!

Hope you liked these swatches and hope you are glad to see me again ;)
