To all my nail polish glitter addicts (you know who you are…), the time has come and OPI is striving to keep up with all the INDIE nail polish brands who continually wow us with their glitter lacquers. In March, OPI will release their very on SPOTLIGHT ON GLITTER Collection.

I am lucky enough to have a sneak peak at these six glitter polishes and have swatched them all so you can decide in advance what should go on your lemmings list.

According to OPI’s recent Press release:

Glitter takes center stage with the launch of Spotlight on Glitter, a new collection of OPI’s best and brightest sparkling lacquers. The line showcases OPI’s most popular metallic and holographic lacquers in rainbow, gold, silver and pink iridescent confetti; these glitters may be worn alone or layered over any nail color for a dazzling effect. “Glitter isn’t just for wearing on New Year’s Eve! Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean you can’t still wear sparkle,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “Try creating an ombré effect or accent nails by adding a layer of sparkle for a fun night on the town.”

There are six glitter polishes included in the full collection:

You Pink Too Much

I’m obsessed with this rosy glitter set in a shimmery base. 

Desperately Seeking Sequins

This prismatic glitter on a backdrop of shimmer is just what you’re looking for.

Rose of Light

A million points of light radiate from this rosy gold and rainbow sparkle.

I Reached My Gold!

The cache of gold confetti in this clear rainbow glitter is all yours!

Chasing Rainbows

Your pursuit of gorgeous has won you this rainbow with pot-of-gold highlights.

Blush Hour

Sorry, gotta blush… this super dense fuchsia glitter is way too charming.

 Let’s get right to the SPOTLIGHT ON GLITTER collection.

 Desperately Seeking Sequins

Coverage: Applied in two thin layers, worn here over OPI MOD ABOUT YOU. Had to mix the bottle around to get the heavier hex glitter.

Glitter Composition: Silver hexes, micro glitter and thin bar glitter (the bar glitter is similar to Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat).

Blush Hour

Save the best for last?

Coverage: Another densely packed glitter, worn here over OPI: WANT TO BITE MY NECK?

Glitter Composition: This glitter is packed with fushia, purple, pink and silver medium size hexes, and small squares and hexes. There are also micro dark purple glitter suspended throughout the jelly base that would be really visible on a lighter base coat. I kind of ‘cheated’ on this swatch. I applied my usual 1-2 coats of glitter for the swatch but I couldn’t help but imagine how stunning this glitter would look layered on, so that’s what I did. This is about 4 coats of the glitter. I took so many pictures of this polish that I’ll probably end up doing a dedicated feature down the line of BLUSH HOUR. I guess I’ve already given away my favorite!

    Can’t wait for the base coat☆
    Much LOVE Xx

    1. Lindsay - Nail That Accent

      Thanks hun. I had good feedback on the starbucks rating. It’s very ME don’t you think? I’m so glad you enjoyed this too. Your picks are just perfect. Still waiting for my base coat to arrive to try out!

  2. Jaime Smith

    Oh my. Admittedly I am all Indie when it comes to glitter bombs. Just something special with Indies but these look nice. I am drawn to Rose of light. I am always drawn to finding rose gold polishes. Your swatches are lovely as always and I love your pairings!! xoxo Jaime

  3. Niki T.

    Definitely getting Chasing Rainbows!! Thank you for the swatches! I’ve been dying to see these swatched since I saw the press release. =)

  4. joyluscious

    I am thinking Rose of Light. I can see it almost being the next “Teenage Dream.”

    Chasing Rainbow looks like the old “OPI Rainbow Connection” and also another dupe in the Nicole by OPI Line. Cannot remember the name.

    You Pink Too Much seems to be a close dupe to Mariah Carry ”

    Pink Yet Lavender.”Desperately Seeking Sequence is a close dupe of “OPI Which Is Witch?” with a difference are a few larger hex glitter.

    From the swatches, I can see some close dupes from past OPI collection. Almost seems like, recycled combos. Would be interesting to see some side by side comparisons.

    1. Lindsay (nailthataccent)

      Rose of light could be the new teenage dream – it’s definitely more rose gold though and less pink.

      Chasing Rownbows – you’re so right – it’s so similar with no small black glitter but it is very similar.

      Not sure which Mariah Carry polish you refer to for You Pink Too much ….

      Desperately Seeking Sequins – OMG you’re right, so close to “Which is Witch”

      I’ll see if I can put something together side by side. Great idea!

    2. joyluscious

      ‘Pink Yet Lavender’ from Mariah Carry Holoiday 2012 might be very simular to You Pink Too Much.

  5. Lucy (the Nail Snail)

    I love the two gold ones, especially Rose of Light. Chasing Rainbows looks very fun, it’s so colorful! Great swatches 🙂
    I think I would probably opt to buy from an indie brand rather than OPI for glitters, though — they end up being priced about the same anyways. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for a sale on these though!

  6. ValiantlyVarnished

    As pretty as this collection is two of the colors were already released last year under different names. I Reached my Gold was When Monkeys Fly and Desperately Seeking Sequins was Which is Witch both from last year’s Oz collection. I’m kind of bummed about this. I was hoping for a more unique collection of glitter polishes.

    1. Lindsay (nailthataccent)

      You’re so right. They are exactly the same. I don’t know why they changed the names. How bizarre! Maybe there was a high demand. Either way blush hour steals the show in my books and is totally unique.

  7. Jen Ireland

    Is it just or me or does “chasing rainbows” look a hell of a lot like “rainbow connection” from the muppets collection a few years back. This collection looks like it’s mostly made of repeats with different names.

    1. Lindsay (nailthataccent)

      Chasing Rownbows – you’re so right – it’s so similar to “Rainbow Connection” with no small black glitter but it is very similar. You’re right though, lots of repeats…I’m not sure why they do that???

    1. Zoe Blayney

      Yes! I was quite shocked and signed up just to tell you! Have you taken any further action?
