Sephora by OPI Midnight Mambo

I purchased Sephora by OPI Midnight Mambo at least a year ago but hadn't tried it until THIS WEEK! Aaargh! It's too pretty to have let sit for so long! Yes, I love nail polish... and makeup... and good-smelling bath and body products! :-D

So, I'm Ruthie, and this is my blog, Frostbite Alley. So named because I live in the "frozen midwest" and often it feels to me as if I'm about to die of cold. Did I mention that I take a chill easily?? Yeah...

Anyway, welcome and thanks for reading. :) I plan to focus on pictures and reviews of beauty products, mainly, but I'll probably throw in a smattering of a lot of different subjects over time. Feel free to give me your suggestions and requests and I'll see what I can do: ruthie.girl@live.com.

Back to Sephora by OPI Midnight Mambo: The formula is thicker than average but not overly thick (e.g. "overly thick" to me is OPI Teenage Dream - at least the bottle I got had a consistency not unlike corn syrup at room temperature in a non-tropical climate!) and it dries very quickly. The finish is not too bumpy, especially considering the amount of glitter this baby has, but it dries semi-matte so top coat is a must if you want to really show off the full luster of that delicious glitterfest on your nails! I used 3 coats in the picture above to even out my application but I'm sure most people would only need 2 - I have a lot of difficulty with fine motor skills so it's not uncommon that I'll need an extra coat and you'll probably see me repeat that often. :)

I've been on the fence about this polish. You just pushed ne over to the YAY! side.

YESSSS!!! ;D Love, love, love to enable!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Maybe it will even serve as a bit of a pick-me-up? :) PLMK what you think of it!

Slightly OT, but have you seen the new SOPI Safari Luxe Collection? I like the looks of it from Sephora's website... *drools*
