OPI Bogota Blackberry and Man of La Mancha

Hello! So today (actually, yesterday) I was in sort of a rut. So I decided to try some layering. I ended up doing 2 coats of OPI Bogota Blackberry and layered 1 thin coat of Man of La Mancha over it. The result was actually prettier than I thought it'd be! Until I knicked it :(

But I have to admit, after using Bogota Blackberry I was thinking about taking it off and starting over with a different color. Mainly because it was 'strokey'. I don't know if you understand what I'm trying to say, but what I mean is that I can see all the brush strokes on the polish. And I hate that! But I thought, well, I should atleast see how it looks with MoLM over it, right? So I did and it was awesome! :D

So here it is, several pictures and a video to try and capture it's shimmery goodness. Unfortunately the pictures and video don't really show how gorgeous this turns into a golden and orange color as well at different angles. Not just green. But still, hope you guys enjoy :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!


  1. This is really lovely! I love the shimmery-ness and the golden glow it shows at an angle. Very pretty!

  2. this is a really beautiful fall color!

  3. it looks like a nice red delicious apple with a mix of an autumn sunset. so pretty!

  4. This is really lovely! I think it would be a wonderful fall color to be sporting as often as possible. It reminds me of leaves changing colors.

  5. that sparkle shimmer is amazing! Your pictures captured it perfectly! I'm following you now :)
