OPI Black Tie Optional

Lemmings, and tigers, and bears, oh my! OPI's Black Tie Optional is one of their old formula duochromes that is hard to find and simply gorgeous. A polish collector like me had to hunt one down. I was very lucky to get a bottle in a swap with a friend not too long ago, woo hoo! It is very pretty, there even some tiny silver sparkles in it although they don't really translate in these pictures.
Are there any lemmings you have killed lately?

  1. Oh Kellie, I love your nails and I love this polish on you! This is so pretty :) I must stay away from evilbay though I'm sorely tempted to look... reading your post was just a quick study break for me! :)

    I've been a lemming slayer lately. My wallet is ashamed. I loved reading nail blogs but didn't really buy nail polish when the OMG and Kaleidoscope collections came out, so I recently hunted DV8, OMG and He's Going in Circles down, and added Octa-gone Wild to that the other night. And I found OPI Blue Moon Lagoon, which was a weirdly massive lemming of mine. And now I think this has added another lemming to my list!

    Lovely pictures :)

  2. I had a chance to buy this on evilBay for a very reasonable price and I didn't and now I'm kicking myself! What a stunning colour!

  3. This is hella pretty! I'm not actually lemming anything at the minute, it feels...strange.

  4. Ooooh.. Very cool! I don't really have any lemmings honestly, nothing's popped out to me that needs to be chased down.

  9. Really nice...it reminds me of the one I'm wearing on my toes at the moment: Illamasqua Scarab, but maybe that's slightly more brown and without the silver shimmer...lovely though!x

  10. That's just plain gorgeous! I've never seen this one swatched. There's so many I haven't seen. I'd love to see older polishes. I can see all the new collections all over the place. Hope sometime you can feature much older polishes.

  11. I really like this one, too :)
    I found it about a year ago on ebay. The first thing I did when I got the polish was to replace that strange old thin OPI brush with an awesome pro-wide :D
    I recently killed a lemming and indulged in OPI Hollywood Blonde (the price was ok... :D)

  12. I had to lay my bow and arrow down by the riverside as of late. The RBL fan collection is coming out, and by the descriptions, I need all of them, so I gotta save my pennies.

    But this one is gorgeous...I love how it looks on you too.

  14. trying to find it and evilbay has it for $25 a bottle! :( crying tears of frustration can't find it anywhere! was told to check OPI new colors as they probably just changed it up a bit and gave it a new name so off to do that now.
