Hello again! Today I will be sharing swatches of the last two polishes from this O.P.I collection. If you read part one of this swatch and review, you'll know I wasn't that impressed with the first two polishes. While these last two did raise the bar, it wasn't by much.

Today I will be reviewing Glints of Glinda, and What Wizardry is This. I will say that I love the names O.P.I chose, frankly more than I liked the collection itself.

First up is Glints of Glinda, which is a semi-matte creme polish in a nude/light tan shade. Similar to Don't Burst my Bubble, just darker. I used a base coat of white polish to help coverage, then finished the look with a coat of my Revlon Quick Dry top coat.

Another thing this shade has in common with Don't Burst my Bubble is the fact that they are both very thin. I quite like this shade, more so than Don't Burst my Bubble. But frankly I have other polishes that are easier to work with, in identical shades. - Maybe I'll create a Dupe post on them! -
The formula is a bit watery, but covers better than the aforementioned Don't Burst my Bubble. But it is very streaky and annoying! I had to use over five thick coats just to get the minute coverage pictured. I think it would have taken over a dozen coats to make me happy with the results.

Saved the best for last! What Wizardry is This is a holographic glitter creme polish, is shades of green, gold, brown, and copper. - Not that you will be able to tell! In pictures the pretty holo-glitter turns into an unattractive shade of mud. - I also used a base coat of white polish for coverage, and finished the look off with a coat of my Revlon Quick Dry top coat.

This is the polish that caught my eye the most out of this whole collection. I hoped when applying it that it would meet some of my expectations, low as they were, and it did! Sort of...
Not as thin as the other polishes, which is a plus. I also love the holo-glitter, and interesting color palette. I currently have nothing like this in my collection. I used to dislike holos, but now they are really growing on me.
Formula wise, The coverage is much better! No streaking, and pretty good coverage. I was able to use only four thick coats. An improvement from the previous three polishes.

All in all, I think the idea behind the collection was nice, and I really like the polish names. But the shades were too hard to work with, and frankly were too similar, and have been done before. I wish the collection was more colorful! When I think of the Wizard of Oz  - Even the Prequel, which this is based on. - I think of bright greens, reds, beautiful emerald glitters, etc. Not two basic nudes, a pastel pink, and a slightly dull holo-glitter. The only glimmer of hope was What Wizardry is This, with its better formula, and interesting look and color. That shade would be the only one I would repurchase once this mini collection is gone.

Thanks for reading! Sorry this post was on the negative side. I have plenty more polishes to swatch, so I'm sure the reviews will be more on the positive side... Hopefully. To check out my previous Swatch & Reviews click here.
