NOTD – OPI – Moon Over Mumbai

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 21 - 2009

A cheapie I picked up from the clearance stand at Sallys (anyone else make a beeline for that little stand?)

OPIMoonOverMumbaiNOTD

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.  I’d call it a pale pearl grey… very lovely!

It’s unfortunately (for me) rather sheer.  The above shows 5 coats and it’s still not fully opaque, although close enough.  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 :) 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 :)

    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 :) 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 :)

    @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 :( 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!
