OPI A Butterfly Moment

Happy Monday, you guys! :-)

I'm super excited to have the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection to share with you. It is an eight-color collection comprised of four 'studio' shades and four 'stage' shades. Starting off the collection, I have the first of the studio shades to show you today. A Butterfly Moment is a nude with hints of peach and pink and a good amount gold shimmers in a metallic finish.






The combination of the peach base color and the gold shimmers makes it look like liquid rose gold on the nails. The formula is thin and smooth, providing even and opaque coverage in just two coats. It starts out a little streaky, but it's not too noticeable once the polish is fully dry.

For me personally, this is a weird color against my skintone. It's almost like the two are really close, but not the same, so they look odd next to each other. Otherwise, I think this is a lovely, classic color, perfect if you're looking for a nude with a little something extra.

You can find A Butterfly Moment at your local nail salons and beauty stores for $9 for 0.5 fl oz.

  2. Wow, how did they match your skintone so exactly?! Haha, yup it feels a little weird but not in a bad way. Maybe it's your ultimate palette cleanser? ;)

    1. You think so? Hmmm the consensus seems to be that it's a good color on me. I've never been a fan of mannequin hands, but maybe I'll give this another try. :-)

  6. I like how the color looks on your nails. Light pink shades sometimes can look very similar to the skin tone ;0)

  12. Hehehehe this polish makes me want to copy&paste mt comment from your next post ;-)
    It's beautiful. Even though it is very very similar to your skin tones it still looks great. But it's OPI... Can't like it. Nothing I can do to help it... i am sorry...
