When the OPI Burlesque Collection came out, as I have mentioned. It wasn’t really for me. Lots of reds and glitters aren’t really my thing. But something about Rising Star always caught my eye both in swatches and in person. & I was recently out shopping and found RS in the clearance bin for $2.99 and I said, “yes please!”
I could see a lot of people saying, “yuck” to this polish color. But, I think it’s really cool, especially with the metallicy foil finish of this collection. It’s not gold. It’s not orange. It’s not copper. It’s a perfect mix of all three! It’s pretty different. On me, I see a lot more orange and copper than I do yellow, which I really like.
My skin tone has a lot of warm undertones. Mostly a lot of yellow, which I don’t preferably love. In the winter months it allows me to still be moderately fair, but not in the pretty cool toned porcelain way. And in the summer, I get a lot of color easily. So because of the yellow in my skin, I think this polish looks not as great as it would on someone with cooler undertones or someone much darker. There’s not enough contrast between the yellow and warm tones in my skin and the yellow in the polish
I still really like this color, I think it’s awesome. The application and formula were really good and standard of most foily finished polishes. I used two thicker coats and everything was even and opaque. I really like warmer toned foils over warm colored shimmers and cremes. They are much more my style.
I don’t think this polish is the most unusual, but I didn’t already own a coppery / orange metallic or foil. I really like it and for me it was the best metallic in the OPI Holiday Burlesque collection.
