OPI Ali's Big Break from Burlesque collection 2010

Today I have first of five OPI nail polishes from Burlesque collection. I could do it as other bloggers normally do and do a swatch and short review but I don't think that one picture would make the justice to all the beauties. So I've decided to make post about each of the polishes, they certainly deserve it!

First of them is Ali's Break - red shimmer with gold flecks, perfect holiday colour. Polish is very well pigmented, I almost needed only one coat. I've used two as I always do. The gold shimmer is more visible in the bottle than on the nail but you can still see some. Formula was absolutely great, right now OPI is for me the brand with best polishes. Removal was without problem.

Ali's Big Break reminded me last year's Smitten with Mittens so I made a comparison. They are quite similar in the bottles but you can see a big difference on the nail. Smitten with Mittens is much darker red than Ali's Big Break and the gold flecks are more visible.

Price: 3/5
Formula: 5/5
Coverage: 4/5
Chipping: 4/5

*Product was send to me by PR company for a review. Information expressed are my honest opinions.

  7. Hi Lucy,

    I just found your website on a Google search for the Texas colours, and clicked through the different links you have. I find it interesting that you too thought that Ali's Big Break reminded you of Smitten with Mittens, as I had the same reaction (and the same conclusion - Smitten is darker). Love them both though, although Smitten is my all time favourite and I miss it. (I only have a small sample size bottle).

    What a wonderful site you have here - thank you for posting so much valuable information!!
