Th-th-throwback time! It's the last day of my and manigeek's five-part series of our favorite black label OPIs! I'm happy and sad at the same time. I've saved my favorites for last so I'm quite excited to show you these two. I'm equally eager to see which two Karen picked for her post today, I am the worst guess-er so I'm not even going to try to predict which she's going to show but I'm dying to find out! Her post is located here at the blog beautygeeks, go look!
Jasper Jade came out in the 1996 Rocky Mountain collection for Fall/Winter. I was 10 years old when this came out! I have wanted this ever since I started blogging. I don't even remember how I found out it existed but I wanted it. I finally found it as recently as last December at a decent price on a random nail site. The label is nice and worn so it's definitely an oldie. It's a blackened dark forest green metallic shimmer. It has that watery old chemically formula so it's a bit sheer, but dries so fast there's no reason to fear multiple coats. This is three.
Check out this old-as-hell label! Yaaasss :D
BEHOLD the splendor that is Peel Me a Gobi Grape! This might be my favorite OPI polish of all time. Not. Even. Kidding. It is from the 1998 Painted Desert collection for Spring/Summer. This is a red toned purpley bruise kinda shade with massive amounts of shimmer that reflect coppery orange and bronze. You can't even see the amazingness, it's impossible to translate in a photo. It's very very hard to find, at least at a price you could live with paying, and I looked for it for a long time before I found it on a blog sale last year. Thin but easy formula, this is three coats. I LOVE IT!!!
My poor label must've fallen off at one point so it looks like someone put tape over it to keep it on. No matter, this doesn't bother me one bit as long as it stays on haha.
To recap, here is my 1st post, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Here is Karen's 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and last today. Please go check them out if you haven't yet :)
So there you have it folks! Thanks so much for joining me and Karen during this collaboration series, I've enjoyed the heck out of it! I might keep going with the throwback posts, glob knows that I've got plenty of vintage polishes to pick from. What do you think?
