OPI Movin’ Out – #vintagepolishfriday

Woooooo do I have a pretty polish for you today! I’ve had this bottle in my melmers for a while now and just hadn’t been inspired to use it. Sometimes when you purchase something that has been on your wish list, you don’t even want to use it for fear of running out which is a real concern with older polishes that are no longer available. I actually purchased OPI Movin’ Out for a fairly reasonable price on Ebay. I don’t remember the exact price but I know it was under $15. Out of the 8 polishes in the 2003 OPI Holiday on Broadway Collection, I think this is one of my absolute favorites. I would love to get the rest of the polishes, but realistically I will probably only end up with Man of La Mancha and La Boheme since I don’t want to pay a small fortune for the others–especially the silver and gold holos. Anyway, let me show you this pretty. I layered it over two different polishes to show you how different it can look depending on your base color. Onto the swatches!

Look how beautiful this looks in the bottle! You really can’t wear this on its own because it’s so sheer, so it screams for interesting layering combinations.

I don’t know if I can call this Unicorn Pee, but It looks pretty damn close to it; the fiery sparkle is there and so is the shiftiness. I only applied one thin coat of Movin’ Out on top of the base colors: OPI Cute Little Vixen (shimmery red) and KBShimmer Orbits and Pieces (metallic purple). I think I prefer the darker base color for this polish, and I can’t even begin to imagine all the endless combinations. I can’t even imagine what a revelation this polish must have been back in 2003 if even today we think it’s gorgeous. I’m really enjoying the process of preparing these Vintage Polish Friday posts because it forces me to use polishes I already have and that I get to share information about past collections. If you do pull out some awesome vintage polish, you can use the hashtag #vintagepolishfriday on Instagram so I can see your post. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. Wow that is beautiful. I don’t know how this one got past my polish radar. It must really be an oldie. I love toppers like this. I refuse to pay inflated prices for an old discontinued polish too. Yes, also guilty of getting those lemmings and then not using them for fear of running out. #polishhoarder

    1. Isn’t it funny how we want something and then refuse to use it? lol I try not to buy outrageously priced polishes but I know that I will fall into the trap if I want it bad enough. I already tracked down Man Of La Mancha for less than what current OPI retails for so that was a win for me!

  2. I’ve wanted this polish because the collector in me needs it. However I’m so lazy that I don’t want to layer. XD But it’s just so gorgeous! Looks great in both swatches you did!
