Recently some people had asked me if I had reviewed Sephora by OPI Midnight Mambo or Only Gold For Me. I hadn’t but when I was purchasing some fun goods from Sephora, I decided to pick ’em up and see if they were any good.
Midnight Mambo is from the limited edition Havana Nights collection (I reviewed most of it here) and Only Gold For Me is a top coat with pizazz.
Midnight Mambo is a light, bright blue with silver and holographic chunky glitter. The silver glitter is small, round and very fine and the holographic glitter is hexagonal and larger. I dunno, I kinda like it. I wasn’t all that excited for it in the bottle, but when it’s on I think it’s pretty cool. It does dry a little gritty, but a top coat would help with that. It was pretty opaque, I only needed two coats and I had no formula or application issues.
Only Gold For Me
Only Gold For Me is a clear base with gold glitter. There is small round gold glitter, and then large chunky hexagonal glitter. On it’s own it’s cool, but not that great. It’s billed as a top coat though, so we all know where this is going…This was two coats. As with most chunky glitters you need a little patience here. You have to let the first coat dry a little bit otherwise you risk pushing the large chunks out of place.
Only Gold For Me over black
Ahhh yes this is how it’s meant to be. Over some dark color. Here I just used some random black, but I think it would look really cool over maybe an olive or army green creme also.
What say you?
