OPI Serena Grand Slam England: Grape... Set... Match & Servin' Up Sparkle

I was so excited to get my hands on this! I needed a glitter that had some larger hex's in it, and this purple is gorgeous too!

I highly recommend you enlarge these pictures for the full effect..... Here's OPI Grape...Set...Match and Servin' Up Sparkle!



This is Grape...Set...Match. The more OPI I use, the more annoying the names get. LOL! I love Grape Set Match.... It's a grapey-purple with pink and blue shimmer. The last picture is with flash to try and show more of the shimmer, but I just couldn't accurately capture it! This is 3 coats. Then, I added 2 coats of Servin' Up Sparkle.

Servin' Up Sparkle is a clear base with small and large hex glitters. The first time I used SUS was a bit of a fail.... The large particles tend to not stay on the brush as well, so you end up with a bunch of small ones that looks just like China Glaze Fairy Dust. BUT, with a few helpful tips from my dear friend Katie from Paws to Polish, I was able to get a few more of the bigger ones! And I shook the hell out of it.... I think that loosened them up from the sides a bit. :) Servin' Up Sparkle is going to become one of  my go-to toppers.... It's gorgeous!

You can find this set at your friendly neighborhood Ulta... if you're lucky. ;) Or, you can do what I did, and head to eBay. :D

  2. I'm really digging the Servin Up Sparkle! OPI always has the best glittered nail lacquers.
