OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! England - Part 2


Hey Everyone! Today I have swatches of the second set from the Serena Williams Glam Slam! England collection which features Your Royal Shine-ness and Servin' Up Sparkle.

When I first saw the press releases for this set, I was a little disappointed to be honest. I thought it was just another metallic silver with the same glitter top coat as the other set.

Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised by Your Royal Shine-ness (YRS) once I applied it! Unlike the other silver metallics/foils in my collection, YRS has fine gold glitter in it which brings a little warmth to the polish and gives it a kind of "old world" look, like expensive polished silver. It applied very easily, with minimal brush stroke marks and dried very fast. This was two coats, without a topcoat.



I then added two coats of Servin' Up Sparkle, which is a clear "topcoat" polish with silvery holographic glitter and holo hexagonal sequins. In bright lighting, this combo definitely sparkles, however, I think I would have liked a different coloured glitter top coat in this set, so there was a bit of contrast between the base colour and the top coat. It is still a really gorgeous combo, but I feel like Servin' Up Sparkle gets a little lost on top of YRS.



Overall, I'm really diggin' all three of the polishes in the Serena Williams Glam Slam! England collection, but I think the Grape... Set... Match duo is my favourite out of the two.

Which one do you like better?
