Swatches: OPI & Serena Williams: Grape Set Match + Servin' Up Sparkle


Did you know Serena Williams is a qualified nail tech?  No?  Me neither.  Not content with being a superstar tennis player, manicure loving Serena has recently qualified as a nail technician and released a selection of shades in partnership with OPI.

This duo is Servin' Up Sparkle, a silvery holographic glitter with a selection of differently sized glitter particles, and Grape Set Match, a shimmering purple with blue and red microsparkle.  Whilst Servin' Up Sparkle is undoubtedly dupe-able, if you don't own a silver holo glitter topcoat, it'll be a fine addition to your collection - but for me, Grape Set Match is the standout here.  Again, it's not the world's most original colour, but the complex, deep shade is beautiful and has incredible wear - I wore this for a full seven days with only minor tipwear before chips started appearing.  For such a bold colour, that's impressive.



Released at the end of June, these are likely to cost you around £20 for the two.  What do you think?  Gorgeous, or too easily duped?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

  2. If you're looking for bling, the combo of the two is perfect - the Grape Set Match shade is more subtle on its own. Still, gorgeous sparkle :)
