OPI | Holiday 2020 Shine Bright Collection: Review and Swatches
Autumn has just started which means that we are about to be bombarded with all the holiday collections. So today, I want to share with you the OPI Holiday 2020 Shine Bright Collection. Offering 12 shades of fun and glitzy nail colors that are party (at home) ready, the new collection is available in the brand's original, GelColor, and Infinite Shine formulation. I have six of the shades to share with you today. To check out my swatches and reviews, click......

Heart & Coal:
This is a deep carbon gray packed with holographic glitters and fine silver glitters. The formulation is rather thick and chunky yet the coverage is sheer; however, two coats provide an opaque finish. Interestingly, the finish is very textured and I'm not sure if that's the intended effect. So if you want a smooth, high-shine finish, the polish needs to be topped with a coat (or two) of a thick, cushiony top coat.

Let's Take an Elfie:
A jewel-tone purple shimmer, Let's Take an Elfie is decently pigmented and easy to apply. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Merry in Cranberry:
My favorite from the bunch, Merry in Cranberry is a gorgeous fuchsia pink with a fine frosty finish. The polish is very pigmented and creamy; I used two coats for the swatches below.

Red-y For the Holidays:
You can never go wrong with a classic red. Although far from original or unique, Red-y For the Holidays is ultra-pigmented and buttery smooth. You can probably get away with just one coat but I used two just in case.

Tinsel, Tinsel 'Lil Star:
A pearlescent white silver packed with fine iridescent shimmer flecks, this shade is quite sheer and a bit patchy. I used two coats for the swatches below but the uneven coverage could have probably benefited from a third.

To All a Good Night:
Another stunner from the collection, To All A Good Night is a blackish, deep blue packed with iridescent silver-blue shimmers. The formulation is decently pigmented and easy to apply. I used two coats for the swatches below.
