Opi Unripened

Although I'm sure you're all already familiar with this  nail polish from the Go Goth! Halloween set, I though that since I'm wearing it I might as well show it to you.

Unripened is a fascinating nail polish in the bottle and in spite of being much more elusive on the nail, it's definitely a must have in my book.
It's a black base shimmer packed with multichome particles going from aqua to blue, blurple, purple and yellow. Opaque in two easy coats (no topcoat here), pretty much Opi's standard, no disappointment here.
On the nail, unfortunately, you won't be able to see all the beauty of the color changing shimmer but a very subtle duochrome, aqua in the center and  blurple in the edges and that is if you look closely, the black base doesn't help...

Like I said, I really love Unripened and I can easily forgive the unkept promise of a color changing shimmer on my nails. It's so dark and mysterious...
It's one of those rare nail polishes that truly makes me happy everytime I look at the bottle : instant joy in a solvent!
I'm sure you have one of those too and I'd be curious to know which ones, maybe it's your turn to create lemmings, LOL.

And just for beauty of it, here's a macro of the "rainbow" :

  3. That color is wicked. Too bad that the bottle color doesn't match the nail color, but regardless, it's still awesome! I REALLY love duochrome polishes! And lately I've been in love with OPI's "Not Like The Movies". It's sheer, so you need 3 coats, but the silver/pink duochrome is beautiful!

  4. @Hey-Hay Yes, the one on the pic is a big bottle, I got it after buying the mini set, I just had to have it!
    I believe the Sinful you're referring to is What's Your Name, it's almost an exact dupe being a tad less shimmery but it's definitely a good choice if you can't get yours hands on Unripened.

    @Lindsay M. B. I hear you about Not Like The Movies. What I usually do with sheer polishes is layer them over a one coater close to their base color, like China Glaze Millenium is this case, it should give you more opacity and since it dries in a flash it's a win-win.

    Anyway, thanks girls for all yours nice comments as always!!!
    xoxo.
