Sephora by OPI GLEE Collection Swatches

Hi everyone! Today I have for you guys some swatches of a bunch of the Sephora by OPI GLEE polishes! I'm missing a couple, but hopefully I can get my hands on those soon! It appears that these are now in stores, I bought mine online but called the local Sephora by me yesterday afternoon and they already had the mini sets. They did not have the full sized bottles in stock though, so you may want to call and ask about these before making the drive to Sephora. These retail for $9.50 for the full sized bottle, which is $0.50 cents more than regular Sephora by OPI polish. Kinda lame that they increased the price if you want my 2 cents about that.

First up are swatches of the polishes included in the mini kit, 3 of the 6 polishes in the mini kit are exclusive to the kit and are NOT available in full sized bottles :(

Slushied, inspired by Finn Hudson is a bright blue creme. Love the name of this polish! The formula was great! Slushied IS available in a full sized bottle! I used 2 coats for the pictures below.

Next up, Celibacy Club, this is the first of the 3 mini kit exclusives. Celibacy Cub is silver and holographic glitter in a clear base. Best used as a top coat, I don't believe you could build this up without a bazillion coats. This one is more holo IRL than in my pictures, I fail at catching top coats like this in pictures...sorry! Below is 1 coat of Celibacy Club over Slushied.


Another mini set exclusive, this is Express Yourself to Yourself. Love the name of this one too lol! This polish is a coral-y glass flecked pink. The formula was pretty sheer, I needed 3 coats for full opacity. Makes no sense that they would put a polish like this in the mini set only....if you like this one good luck getting more than a couple mani's out of the bottle. Below is 3 coats of Express Yourself to Yourself.

Gleek Out is inspired by Kurt Hummel, I loooooove this polish! It's a green and gold glass flecked beauty. Totally my kind of color, it fulfills my need for weird colors! This one was also pretty sheer, but good news...this IS available in a full sized bottle, which I fully plan on buying! I used 3 coats of Gleek Out for the pictures below.

Miss Bossy Pants, inspired by Rachel Berry is a bright fuschia pink with a touch of a purple shimmer. This IS available in a full sized bottle! I like this one much more than I thought I would, it was extremely easy to work with even with that stupid mini brush! I used 2 coats of Miss Bossy Pants for the pictures below.

Last up from the mini set is Sue Vs. Shue, this one is the last mini set exclusive polishes. What a shame, I love this one! It's a dark navy blue with a gorgeous shimmer. I love navy's like this that actually look blue and not black! The formula was great, if you use thick coats of polish you could probably get away with 1 coat, I used 2 coats for the pictures below.

On to a couple polishes that are only available in full sized bottles, I am missing a couple. Who Let The Dorks Out? and Mash Up, hopefully I can get my hands on them soon!

Diva-in-Training is inspired by Santana Lopez and is a bright pink. Almost neon but not quite, it did dry semi matte though. The formula on this one was really great, the first coat went on a bit streaky but the second coat evened everything out. I used 2 coats of Diva-in-Training for the pictures below.

Saving the best for last, this is Hell To The No which is inspired by Mercedes Jones. Hell To The No is a purple with a freakin amazing coppery gold shimmer. I love this polish so much, they should have named it Hell To The Yes because it's just that fantastical! If you only buy 1 polish from this collection I would recommend this one, it's the standout for me. The formula was great, I really can't complain about anything. This is 2 coats of Hell To The No.

Once I got Hell to the No on it reminded me of something, Pa A24. Below is my swatch from a while back, different shade a purple but same general feeling. If you have been lemming this Pa polish Hell To The No might squash that.

  10. I LOVE Hell to the No! It reminds me of Zoya Zara. I'm definitely getting that one, but probably not the rest.

  11. Gah! These look so pretty! I was in Sephora 2 days ago and didn't see these...I must go and order them now

  12. Love these swatches... I just picked up the set along with Who Let The Dorks Out (which is amazing with its subtle purple shimmer)... wish my Sephora had Hell To The No because it's GORGEOUS. Passed on Mash Up because I realized it's IDENTICAL to the Katy Perry OPI Not Like The Movies.

  13. Hell to the No is splendid! Thanks to you I wanted that pa in the most fierce way! I bought three of them (for swapping purposes) at..not Mitsua..but that other market on Harbor Blvd when I was home for the holidays. I love all polishes with gold shimmer. :)

  14. Thanks for the swatches. Hell to the No reminds of (IMO, it's a dupe, I might be wrong) of LA girl Habit from the new color colection.

    I can't wait to see those in person. Especially if Mash Up is dupey to Not Like The Movies, that makes me excited!

  18. This is an amazing collection. Love the colors and I'm always so impressed by your nails... so lovely!

  19. Am I the only one who thought the Diva In Training formula was awful? It was SO streaky and took me three coats to even it out. Slushied was so much better.

    I didn't have the problem with it, for that kind of color I thought the formula was pretty great. I tend to be a thick coater so maybe that made a difference
