Since we don't have Sephora here in Australia I purchased this set from Tarazz.com.au for $54.94 AUD ($49.50USD - we had a good exchange rate at the time). Tinsel Town has 16 minis and one full size top coat in the collection.
Originally I wasn't going to swatch the whole collection but I thought I just had to to show the beauty of each colour so be prepared for a photo heavy entry.

Already Famous is a brown/gold shimmer and is quite thin in consistency and appears more like sheer top coat rather than a polish to wear on its own.

AND A CHERRY ON TOP
S-AGE IS JUST A NUMBERAcross the Universe.
S-age Is Just a Number is a two tone chrome with fleck of blue, green, gold and purple (kinda like a peacock feather). It's a beautiful colour but really hard to capture on camera.
I THINK I CAYENNE
This one was quite surprising. When you look at this in the bottle it looks like an orange/green (yeah, not so nice right?) but once you apply I Think I Cayenne it becomes a shimmer yellow/orange with flecks of gold. It's a really beautiful colour but I wish it had more of a creme base as I feel the consistency is a little too thin.

JUST A LITTLE DANGEROUS
I DON'T BITE
I Don't Bite is a lilac metallic shimmer nail polish that in some lighting looks almost holographic. It's a nice colour but with my complexion can look a little wishy washy.

ONLY GOLD FOR ME TOP COAT
When I first saw images of Only Gold For Me I thought that this would be on par with OPI's Man with the Golden Gun and Mariah Carey's PURE but alas I was wrong. This top coat is just a gold glitter explosion featuring two different sizes of glitter flakes throughout. It's nice but it's nothing to write home about either.
Overall I am LOVING this collectors edition of Sephora by OPI but am even more excited by Sephora's Formula X Collections but of course Australia misses out on this as per usual. I'm hoping to get my hands on a couple of them to add to my collection.
If you want to buy the Tinsel Town Collection it is unfortunately no longer available on Tarazz or Sephora but you CAN still buy it on Ebay and Amazon (well at the time of writing this). It's definitely worth it for those who love to collect polish like I do!
