Not too long ago the awesome Lauren and Loren at Lacquer and Lashes held a giveaway with an amazing prize… And I won! 😀
The prize was two bottles of discontinued nail polish, OPI Opening Night Gold and China Glaze Emerald Sparkle!! I had wanted Opening Night Gold for ages, but figured it was something I would never see in person since I wasn’t ready to pay crazy ebay prices for it! So needless to say, I was very excited to win the giveaway. Thank you so much, Lauren and Loren!!!
Opening Night Gold is an oldie, from the 2003 Holiday on Broadway collection. It’s a gorgeous golden beige linear holo!
The swatches show three coats. The formula is thin and smooth. It’s from before the switch by OPI to “Big 3 Free” polishes, so it does contain those ingredients. Which personally doesn’t really bother me; I try not to huff my polishes while applying them either way! 😉 Opening Night Gold dries very quickly, like a lot of similar holographic polishes do!
There’s not much more to say except I LOVE THIS! 😉
The other polish, China Glaze’s Emerald Sparkle, is not as hard to find as the OPI but is also discontinued. Apparently this was first released in China Glaze’s 2008 holiday season collection, and there are two versions in existence. This one is the “good” version! 😉
Shown are two coats of this deep green jelly with green glitter. It dries a little dull and rough on its own due to all the glitter, so a nice thick topcoat is in order for this one! The first two photos show it with topcoat added.
These last two are pre-topcoat; if you click on the photos to see the large versions you can see the difference in texture.
Both of these polishes are awesome and I highly recommend picking them up if you should happen to run across them! Emerald Sparkle can also usually be found for a reasonable price on ebay.
Thanks again, Lauren and Loren!! You guys rock! 🙂
