A few months ago I blogged about Orly Glitz, since then I have seen several people on MUA ask about different gold polishes. It seems that gold is undergoing a resurgence in popularity. Maybe because of the fast approaching Christmas holidays. But whatever the case, I will admit, and it is probably the same reason I prefer gold jewelry, I love the way it compliments my skin tone.
So today, I am finally sharing a polish that I have had since last holiday season. I'm certain that I am not the first to speak of this polish, but it is always good to see a shade on other skin tones.
For the winter/holiday season of 2010 OPI introduced 12 new polishes which made up the OPI Burlesque Collection. Today I am reminding you of OPI Rising Star. Rising Star is a gorgeous warm gold metallic foil. Whereas Orly Glitz is a butter yellow gold, OPI Rising Star is a cross between bronze, gold, and copper. I must admit that this was a difficult shade for me to photograph. Depending on the lighting it took on several different shades, although it’s not a duochrome. As you will see in the photos below, there are several different looks, all from the same polish.
NOTE: I had to help with a move recently and to prevent any major damage, I filed back my nails. It was successful, only casualty was a chipped thumbnail on my non-swatch hand. LOL!
