OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam! US Swatches and Review

Grandstand Finale!
OPI Launches Sizzling Shades with Serena Williams’ Glam Slam! Series in Anticipation of Upcoming New York Tournament
OPI and tennis superstar Serena Williams announce the two final lacquers in the 2011 Glam Slam! promotion, timed in conjunction with the upcoming New York tournament. Glam Slam! U.S. features a duo-pack with two high-shine shades:

Love is a Racket : shimmering red
Pros & Bronze : glittering bronze

Love is a Racket is a beautiful glass flecked tomatoe red packed with pink particles. This color is just so hot and sparkly, a breathtaking red. Formula was amazing, it applied smoothly and evenly in 2 coats.

Pros & Bronze is somewhere between a glass fleck and a foil. It's a bronze / gold / pink duochrome and it's so sparkling that it seems alive, glowing like fire in direct sunlight. This is such an unusual shade, totally unique in my collection. It went on a bit sheer but built up easily in 3 coats.

And... Just for fun, because the other Serena  sets were supposed to be worn together, I decided to show you what Love is a Racket looks like with one coat of Pros & Bronze on top :

Overall :
Another small but great OPI collection, I really love how they are different from what you'd expect from a Fall polish. Totally a win in my book, the only downside being that they're limited editions, grab yours while you can!

New shades in the Glam Slam! promotion are introduced to coincide with each of the four major tournaments, including the upcoming New York tournament in August 2011. As with all OPI nail lacquers, Glam Slam! shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
Glam Slam! U.S. will be available beginning August 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $14.95 ($20.95 CAN) suggested retail for each duo-pack.
