OPI Man Of La Mancha – #vintagepolishfriday

I am super excited about the polish that I have for you today. I know that I say that a lot, but you will understand once you see it in all its glowy glory. Last week I showed you OPI Movin’ Out from the 2003 Holiday On Broadway Collection and today I have another beauty from the same collection. A couple of weeks ago, I saw Jessica from Be Happy and Buy Polish use OPI Man Of La Mancha in her mani, and I knew that it had to be mine. Are you ready to see what I did with it?



First off, I started with 3 coats of Deborah Lippmann Dancing In The Sheets. This is a nice polish, but it’s so patchy! It irks me to have a premium priced polish without the premium formula. Thankfully, I got this polish on sale–otherwise I’d be pissed.

And this is one coat of OPI Man Of La Mancha over the dark blurple base. Oh lord, this is absolutely gorgeous! The formula on this polish is very sheer and my bottle was a little thick so I had to add a few drops of thinner. Since this is an old black label OPI, I used Seche Restore which has all the bad chemicals. These pictures were taken under direct light, but I also wanted to show you how it looks under indirect low light.

Yes, you can pick your jaw up from the floor. Look how this polish glows; it glows with the intensity of a million suns due to the unicorn pee pigment that it contains. Depending on your angle and on the lighting, you will get a very different color shift. The base color that you use will also have a huge affect on how your mani turns out. I honestly feel like this baby is the most interesting polish from the Holiday On Broadway Collection. This beauty, like Movin’ Out, has the original Unicorn Pee pigment that we know and love. I was able to pick this up on eBay for $9.75–shipping included which is a total steal. As of 3/12, the seller I got this from still has 7 bottles available for purchase so check it out here.

So what do you think about this beauty? Let me know in he comments below. Remember that if you want to join me for Vintage Polish Friday, you can use the hashtag #vintagepolishfriday on Instagram so I can see your mani. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
