Hard-to-Find Week Pre-Party: Black Tie Optional

OPI Black Tie Optional, a deep purple beetle multichrome from the 2001 World Collection, is one of the classic hard-to-find polishes.

I lemminged this one forever until I finally decided to just splurge and get one on ebay. I’ve noticed that some bottles of OPI Black Tie Optional have more of the multichrome beetle effect than others. Mine is a dud *sigh*. The beetle effect is there but it’s very subtle so I couldn’t get a very good picture of it. The non-dud bottles flash gorgeous amber, green, and red.

    I’ve resigned myself to the fact that there will always be things I want which I cannot have, like, oh, Black Tie Optional, beautiful long nails and amazing application skills. Yes, I’m looking at YOU, Ms. Pretear. >)

    OT, but I love the blogs you love too! Have you been to failblog.org?

    Ahhh that is one of the most beautiful purples out there. Do you know if it’s similar to Rimmel Night Before?

    Shryh – Thank you. YES! I love Fail Blog. Cracks me up every time! XD.

    Tiffany – I’m not sure but I’d say it’s pretty close to the purple-ness of OPI Who Are You Wearing?.

    Alice – It’s a great color, you can still get them on ebay for fairly reasonable prices.
