18K Midtown Magic

I bought Midtown Magic from Sallys a while ago but never got round to using it. It is by one of my favorite nail polish brands, China Glaze and at a glance it just looks like a black polish in the bottle.

However, in the right light it shows its true colours - a very dark plum base with a hint of chocolate-brown. It also has very fine golden shimmer running through it.

This polish was in the sale and I bought it a few months back but it's from Metro collection for autumn 2011.

I painted two coats of Midtown Magic then used one coat of OPI's The Man With The Golden Gun - 18k gold flakie top coat. 

I have mentioned before that I am not a fan of the OPI 18k topcoat (which I bought from Sally's in the sale) The clear base is quite thick and the gold flecks are so sparse. It takes a lot of effort to get the flecks in a noticeable place. I am glad I didn't pay full price, I would have been very disappointed.


  1. Hi Nicole, I still think the Opi gold polish looks amazing on nails, especially against that colour x x
