OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! France Swatches

The 4 latest shades from the OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! France Collection have been popping up at various retail stores lately. It is only fitting that I post swatches of those that I have as well! There are 2 sets available and are shown below.

OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! France Spark de Triomphe & White Shatter Set

OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! France Rally Pretty Pink & Red Shatter Set

First up is the first shade from the first set, Spark de Triomphe.

O-M-G…..so pretty! This is a stunning silver glitter shade that I absolutely loved wearing just by itself. Formula is great and went onto my nails smoothly. Drying time is fast, as expected with a glitter shade. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

Then we have the White Shatter that comes in the set over Spark de Triomphe.

The shade in the next shade is called Rally Pretty Pink.

Beautiful, beautiful shade. Rally Pretty Pink is not a true pink. It leans towards purple with gold shimmer. The gold shimmer reminds me that of some shades from Zoya. It’s almost a metallic foil, but not quite in my opinion. Formula is great and applied smoothly onto my nails. It also dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.

And now, with Red Shatter from the set.

I love the shatters in the sets, but I prefer them to be paired with other shades in all honesty. I think both Spark de Triomphe and Rally Pretty Pink look so much better alone than with the shatters. I have used the shatters with other shades on my nails and love them much better than over the 2 shades mentioned. Nonetheless, the set is a good buy because all the shades will definitely be used! Both shatters look extra pretty when top coat is applied over it. I find that shiny, wet look very pleasant!

These should be available in various retail stores such as ULTA and Trade Secret. So, which shade will you be getting? I personally think all 4 are must-haves!

    • I sometimes fear there’s too many pictures, but so far the comments I’ve gotten about my pictures are that they like how it shows different lighting and such so they don’t mind the abundance. 🙂

  4. I have to agree with you, the pretty red color should be left alone, as it’s so gorgoeus, your web blog is amazing, and the other nail colors from this set I heard will be available later on this summers to match the four tennis tournaments that Serena will be in?

    Or is this wrong info from the grapevine, LOL

    I might be confused…

    Love,

  6. I bought both sets as soon as I saw them! And can’t wait for the one with the purple that’s supposed to show up soon.

    • Yes! It’s stunning I heard! I can’t wait to swatch it when I get it.
