OPI Black Tie Optional Swatch

OPI Black Tie Optional is an older polish that I got early on into my OPI obsession. It’s a gorgeous blackened purple with slight pinkish purple mircroshimmer. Since it’s quite an older polish it comes with the thinner brush that OPI used to make, but it still went on easily and was opaque in two coats.

I love dark, vampy polishes like this and am happy to have it in my collection. You can never have too many purple polishes I say. It’s funny to think that when I purchased OPI Black Tie Optional about 6 years ago, I only had a handful of OPI nail polishes in my collection. I’ve certainly acquired many polishes since then and my collection continues to grow. The drawers I keep my polishes in don’t really have much room left! Maybe that just means I need to find a better storage solution.

    Oooh now this one is SO BEAUTIFUL!! I love dark vampy polishes too.
    O.P.I is truly an amazing brand and my nail polish collection consist mostly of OPI, Essie and IsaDora and then a few random brands… OPI is a huge favorite though :)
    I really love this nail polish… here in Finland we seldom get very new collections.. just a few of them, but we have quite a lot of the older ones so maybe I can find this :)

      I hope you do find it, but don’t worry if you can’t. I’m sure there are similar ones. I really love OPI too, they are my favourite brand of polish overall, I’d say. I really like Essie too. I’ve never tried IsaDora though! I’m not even certain we have them here, though it sounds familiar.

      It’s funny because this one often gets neglected, but then I wear it and wonder why I don’t wear it all the time! I guess that’s what happens when you have too many polishes though haha.
