Brights of Yesteryear: OPI Give Me the Moon

opi-give-me-the-moon

OPI Give Me the Moon was included in the 2007 Summer collection Night Brights. Not a particularly ‘bright’ color per se, but definitely a unique, interesting color. The base shade is like an icey gray but the dense blue iridescent shimmer gives it a bluish over all glow. It’s definitely a sheer-ish color but this swatch is only 3 coats.

Here is a photo taken with flash to exhibit the exquisite shimmer.  I’d be interested in comparing this color with the new OPI Breathe Life (which I have yet to obtain, curses!) The base color looks different but Breathe Life seems to have the same shimmer that makes this color so great.

    Oooo that shimmer does look like the one in Breathe Life. Can’t wait to see your comparison pics :D

    I absolutely love this colour – used it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It is really unusual.

    I haven’t got Breathe Life either (not available in the UK, curses) but the pics I have seen of it appear a lot sheerer and greener. I’d love to see a side by side comparison if you do get hold of it though.

    Wow the flash really brought out the cool shimmer! I wasn’t really impressed with the color until I saw the “flash” pic. Looks great on you :)

    Seems you needed something fresh, you cut your nails. It took me some times to figure it out, I was thinking like “Well… this polish is nice… but I feel like there is something weird with it” and couldn’t understand why.

    Btw I’d give you the moon if I could give it hand to hand honestly ;)
