Moon Over Mumbai was released as part of the OPI Indian Collection and was one of the first ultra light greys on the market.

It’s a very pale cold grey with a slight shimmer.ย  I’d call it a pale pearl grey… very lovely!

It’s unfortunately (for me) rather sheer.ย  The above shows 5 coats and it’s still not fully opaque, although close enough.ย  Longevity is VERY good though… 5 days and counting with no top coat! (I’m so lazy)

Are you a fan of greys?

    Are your nails real? They’re lovely.

  2. hi! thanks for following my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ you have a great blog… i was just wondering what camera you use as your pictures are quite good quality xx

  3. I just want the polish for the name…my o/h is Indian so I feel the affinity.., must check eBay for other colours too!x

    I’m always meaning to go to Sallys and see if they have this hair cream that I really like but my local one is far away from the shopping centre and I always wimp out.

    The colour looks really nice, kinda like a “my nails but better” without them looking fake ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was looking at your picture and thinking “dang! I wonder how many coats that is?” til I read how many…

    I always pick this out of my stash when hunting for an untried to blog about but can’t bring myself to do this yet as it is soooo sheer. I need to do it though (maybe over white or a similar toned creme) as I think it looks gorgeous.

    I am a massive fan of grey and glad it’s still in fashion for this season. In fact, I love it so much that I wouldn’t care if it wasn’t. If you like this, you should try OPI’s Sheer Your Toys or OPI Give Me The Moon. Also beautiful (more so I think) and far less like hard work.

  6. @Luce – Thank You ๐Ÿ™‚ Yep, they’re all mine! Just chopped them right back after splitting my thumbnail on holiday… I prefer them shorter. I can get in the nappy cream pot without picking sudocreme out from under my nails for the next 2 hours!

    @RupasMakeupDiary – Thank You, I use a Canon 30D DSLR ๐Ÿ™‚

    @LionLovingTiger – The Indian Collection has some of THE BEST names… “Yoga-ta get this Blue” & hold onto your sides…. *drumroll* “Curry Up Don’t Be Late!” hee!

    @Rhamnousia – Oh definitely go to Sallys I’m so cheap though. I’ve only ever bought about 3 things that weren’t on the clearance shelves – ’tis their fault for having such big clearances right?

    @Helen – Thanks for stopping by! Yes, it’s a fair few coats isn’t it?! I never mind doing loads aslong as it’s not a bitch to apply ‘cos I’m usually watching telly or doing something else equally distracting at the time.

    I was actually googling last night thinking “there must be a product out there like a base coat which turns sheers into opaques whilst retaining the true colour of the polish” – I guess not huh?

    Thanks for the recs – Sheer Your Toys was on my list already, will check out “Give Me The Moon” too – do you have a preference over either two?

    I love them both – and have blogged about them if you want to see pics. I couldn’t choose, GMTM has green duo flashes, and SYT has great flecks of copper glitter.

    And Zoya Harley too – also gets a big thumbs up. Great application and wear.

  8. @Helen – I’ve never tried a Zoya ๐Ÿ™ Pasha is on my must have list, infact it’s driving me a little doo-lally – hope it can reach the pedestal I keep trying to place it on!
