Winning Duo - OPI Spark de Triomphe + White Shatter


OPI Spark de Triomphe and White Shatter are two polishes newly introduced in one of the Serena Glam Slam duos released for the French Open. (Spark de Triomphe...get it? *eyeroll*)

Spark de Triomphe deserves kudos for being amazing all on its own! It's a gorgeous combination of gold and silver that needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, but here it is...


It's packed with different sizes of glitter...


My favourite are the larger discs of glitter that seem to sit on top of the polish - it looks completely jewel-encrusted...


When I initially purchased the duo, I fully intended to swap or give away White Shatter, but I tried it for fun and ended up really loving it!!


Spark de Triomphe peeks through the cracks - so when you coat your nails in a couple layers of topcoat, the end result looks like an opaque white stone with veins of gold sparkle running through it - a gorgeous gemstone.


This duo is a total game-set-match style win for me! (Maybe it will be for Serena as well?) I expect that Spark de Triomphe will be on my toes many times this summer...and maybe even on my tips if I need a glittery pick-me-up! And now that I know I actually *like* the White Shatter, I'm excited to try it over some pastels.

What are your thoughts on the Serena French Open duos? Are you planning to pick any of them up?

@Caitlin - I found it at my Ulta, if that helps!

@Martha - I think Spark de Triomphe is really worth getting. A very special colour!

@Stef - Thank you so much!

@Sminkan - Which white crackle do you have??

I just bought this set this week, and had the same feeling as you about the white crackle - and the same reaction after I tried it! Can't wait to try this combo out myself!

The Spark de triomphe reminds me a bit of OPI - Glow up already from the Burlesque Collection..

ChaosButterfly said...

I don't want any of the duos, but I need Spark de Triomphe in my life. Like, I need it. ;____;
I hope that it can be bought separately...

Alison said...

Such a gorgeous glitter and I love it with the white shatter over too. I think I will be picking these up too, but I am not keen on the Rally Pretty Pink and Red Shatter so will be giving those a miss.

Lucy said...

Wow! I can't believe how beautiful this combination is. I didn't think it would look that good. All that beautiful glitter peeking out between the cracks. It does look like a beautiful jewel.

Lesley said...

so beautiful! I wasn't sure about the white shatter either but it looks lovely in your pictures!

Courtney said...

I am KICKING myself for not getting this when I was at Ulta on Mother's Day! Mannnnn...it looks SO awesome on you!!

Stephanie said...

1. I like Spark de Triomphe.
2. It reminds me of Dazzled By Gold, but chunkier.
3. I giggle-snorted when I read the name for the first time. PUNS <3
4. The white shatter looks interesting, but I don't think it's for me. I just can't get behind this shatter trend.
5. I still think you're awesome.

OMG!! What an amazing combo! Love Sia x

I'm wearing this on my toes now, and it was my NOTD last week. I cannot believe how easy it was to remove! It just melted right off rather than being that dreaded glitter that takes eons of soaking to barely make a dent. This is the only polish from all of the Glam Slams that I like. I'm just not a fan of the Shatter effect. Not at all.
