OPI: Man of La Mancha

Hi lovelies,

So you all probably know by now that once in a while I search the web to find some of my never ending lemmings. If I manage to find one or two, they’re often being sold for a crazy high price. And although I absolutely love to add them to my collection, I still am not going to pay a ridiculous amount of money for them. OPI‘s Man of La Mancha was on my wishlist for a very long time. This black label polish was discontinued a long time ago and has that typical strong scent to it. This one isn’t too bad though compared to the other oldies that I have. For my photo’s below I applied two thin coats over a black base and topped it with one coat of top coat:opi - man of la manchaThis also has a golden sheen to it which my camera couldn’t pick up. It is absolutely gorgeous!opi - man of la mancha2What do you think of this one?

And what’s your number 1 lemming? Mine is Rouge Louboutin by Christian Louboutin… *dreams on*

OPI: Thoroughly Modern Millie


Today I have an oldie to show you. As you might know I love to collect old polishes. You know, the hard to find ones that are mostly discontinued. In case of OPI’s, give me all the Black Label polishes and I’m a happy girl. Even if they have a weird stinky formula. Yes, I’m weird like that 😉
Thoroughly Modern Millie is one of them. opi - thoroughly modern millie1It belongs to the Holiday on Broadway Collection from 2003 (I believe). If I recall correctly I purchased this together with La Boheme as a set. That one was on my wish list for a very long time. Such a beauty!
Anyway, this is a sheer slightly tinted base with silver micro glitter. The sheer base is somewhat duochrome. In some angles it seems pink/purple while in other angles I can see hints of green. Very unusual. I applied two coats over black undies here.
The pick below shows the green better:opi - thoroughly modern millie2Any thoughts about old polishes? Do you search the web to find that particular discontinued polish?
