OPI Starlight Collection 6 piece set swatch & review

**press sample**


Hey lovelies!

Today I have six polishes from the OPI Starlight Collection. The full OPI Starlight Collection consits of 18 shades. The set I received includes Cosmo with a Twist, Center of the You-niverse, I'm in the Moon for Love, Press * for Silver, By the Light of the Moon, and Infrared-y to Glow.

Let's get started!

Cosmo with a Twist
First up we have Cosmo with a Twist swatch shows two coats plus top coat. This shade has subtle blue and purple shimmer throughout in a navy colored base. Formula was smooth and is easy to apply. I didn't have any staining issues with it. The shimmer really liked to stick around after removal. I really love this one!

Center of the You-niverse
Center of the You-niverse swatch shows two coats plus top coat. Formula was smooth and easy to apply. This polish has matte hex glitters in different sizes and silver shimmer throughout in a blackened base. The hex glitters are tough to see in photos but they're in there and they like to stick around after removal too. I like this shade because it's a bit different than what I'm used to. Might not be everyones cup of tea though.

I'm in the Moon for Love

I'm in the moon for Love, swatch shows two coats plus top coat. This is an eggplant colored shade with shimmer throughout. Photo taken under direct daylight bulbs to show the shimmer. Formula was a bit runny and kind of flooded my cuticles. Might have been a me problem though. I didn't have any staining issues. I love this shade!

Press * for Silver
Press * for Silver, swatch shows two coats plus top coat. Formula was ok. This has some bronze like shimmer throughout that can be seen in the macro. The name has silver in it but this doesn't look silver to me.
Honestly I wasn't impressed with this one.

By the Light of the Moon
By the Light of the Moon, swatch shows two coats plus two coats of top coat. Ok this one is interesting. It has silver hex glitters in different sizes in a metallic base.  It seems like the sister of Pineapples Have Peelings Too and Baroque but Still Shopping. I don't know why OPI has been doing these types of polishes. I know some people like them. I don''t know how I feel about them. Not even two coats of top coat helped to make it look smooth.

Infrared-y to Glow over Press * for Silver
Infrared-y to Glow, swatch shows two brushed on coats over Press * for Sliver. This is an interesting glitter topper. The shapes seem to be shaped like boomerangs or something. I've never seen this type of glitter before. I love the small holo hex glitter and wished it had more of that.

And there you have them! Six shades from the OPI Starlight Collection. I really only like three of the six but I'm going to try and use them all in different looks. I already did a couple looks featuring some of these shades and you'll be seeing them soon on my Instagram page. What do you guys think of these shades? Let me know in the comments below.



Thank you for stopping by. Happy polishing!

  1. Beautiful swatches, I have so much jealous lol! It's a shame they didn't make the boomerang glitters in Infrared-y more chevron shaped, that would have been awesome for placement!

  2. I remember when I thought OPI could never make a bad polish. Oh well. Cosmo looks awesome, though.

    1. I love OPI. If they had made By the Light of the Moon in a jelly or crelly base it would have been better.

  5. I think Press * for Silver is supposed to be a warm, rosy silver (pearl) - so looks like that's what it is. :)
