Everyone has probably seen these a ton of times already, sorry for slacking! :( But here are my swatches of the Burlesque Collection by OPI. I've shown about two of them previously but here they are all together. Instead of overloading one post with the swatches for the whole collection, I decided to do a skittles swatch instead so it's easier to see and compare. :) {Sorry for some blurry parts of the picture, my camera isn't the best & I don't have any room to have a lightbox in my room. I'm hoping to save for a better camera though!}

* Ali's Big Break - red with fuchsia glitter. 2 coats & 1 coat of TC.

    Pretty: I think I feel the same way when I saw the swatches, so I just got all of them haha! I didn't think I'd like Rising Star and Take the Stage as much but the colors came out amazing! It really surprised me haha.

    Katrina: They are! Even though some of them seem similar, especially the gold ones, but they're still different at the same time! And I love how they're so eye catchy when you wear them as a mani! :)♥
