Review: I Only Shop Vintage Swatches - Sephora by OPI

As a side quest to track down and obtain every type of sparkly there is out there, I'm also always on the look out for a polish that's different.  I don't care what the colour is, it's texture, nothing as long as it isn't something that's available in some variation from every brand.  Stopping by Sephora last weekend, I found a polish that certainly fits the "different" criteria - Sephora by OPI I Only Shop Vintage.

I Only Shop Vintage is a really pretty "vintage" gold shimmer.  A dusty gold, I actually think the name is a perfect fit as I can really see this colour perfectly in a bag or pair of shoes in a thrift shop.  Application was decent, the pictures you see here are three coats.  I also wanted to try something a little different this one.  I've had a few failure tonight and I couldn't leave you on just a standard colour swatch.  After I added the three coats, I added a coat of Seche Vite, a coat of Joe Fresh Matte top coat and then Seche Vite on the tips, a la` Chloe's Nails.  I'm happy with the result, it's a nice sandy gold, certainly different to the colours I normally wear. 








The Verdict:  Looking at the bottle, I almost wish I'd left this shiny as there are a lot of shimmer particles in there that kinda get lose in a matte top coat.  That being said, I'll leave it, just to be different.  On a side note, I must give OPI and Sephora props as they've had some excellent collaborations lately, both with the different colours like (212) Sephora and the mega sparkly glitters.

I Only Shop Vintage is from the new Spring collection at Sephora, $11.50 each.

  1. Gorgeous color! It's a bit darker than China Glaze Fast Track, no?

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
