Day 9 Featuring OPI Man of La Mancha

Good afternoon my fellow Lacquered Lovers!  As we go on through the 30 days of untrieds, I am finding some real gems in my collection!  Today I have for you a polish that came out as part of OPI Holiday on Broadway in 2003.  Now when I moved to Manhattan back in 2008, as I was packing up my nail polishes to go (my collection was far smaller back then, maybe there were 20-25 polishes in total) I decided to raid my mom's nail polish drawer as well in case there was anything good in there (sorry Mom!)  I grabbed a couple of reds without paying attention and went on my merry way.  I never even tried the ones I grabbed!

Fast forward to 2011, I began to blog and found out about all of these Hard To Find polishes.  Lo and behold, one of the ones I stole from my mom turned out to be Man of La Mancha!  However it didn't look that impressive in the bottle so I still never tried it.  Fast forward to last night and I finally decided to use it.  After some googling and asking around, I knew it had to be layered over something dark to get the look I wanted and so now, without further ado, on to the polish!

MULTICHROME!!!  Ah it's so fun!  It was insanely hard to capture a picture of this polish so I will spam you with 12 pictures instead.  Man of La Mancha is very sheer and looks almost orangey-red in the bottle, but layered over a dark purple, BAM!  It flashes red, gold, greenish, purple.  It's basically just awesomeness in a bottle.  Why doesn't OPI make multichromes like this anymore?  Let's look at more pictures:

So pretty!  Also check out my awesome friend Jacki's Blog Candy Coated Tips to see how this gorgeous color looks over OPI Royal Rajah Ruby!  This is what I love about the 30 Days of Untrieds, I never know what gems I find hiding in my collection!  Now is this polish worth the high prices it goes for on eBay (at least $15 from what I understand)?  Well, I guess that's up to each person, but I'm glad I found it hiding in my mom's drawer!

What do you all think of Man of La Mancha?  Any other colors I should try to layer it over?  Do you have it or are you lemming it?


  1. Mmmm I love oldschool OPI multichromes! MoLM looks amazing over black~

  2. I have M of La M too. I need to dig it out and play with it again. You are right, it's not interesting on it's own and looks funky in the bottle. But that also was a period of time that Opi had a lot of work going on to learn how to dump the old frosts/pearls and try and come up with some different things in polish. Glad your mom kept this one.

  3. Such a pretty color! Am still waiting to see my Essie Mint Apple !!

  4. Once upon a time there was a child who was willful and did not do archeage money what his mother wanted. For this reason God was displeased with him and caused him to become ill, and no doctor could help him, and in a short time he lay on his deathbed. He was lowered into a grave and covered with earth, but his little arm suddenly came forth and reached archeage gold up, and it didn't help when they put it back in and put fresh earth over it, for the little arm always came out again. So the mother herself had to go to the grave and archeage money beat the little arm with a switch, and as soon as she had done that, it withdrew, and the child finally came to rest beneath the earth.

  5. Now most of the workers and public servants work from 9 Atlantica Gold am to 5 pm. Some of them even work from 8 am or 8:30 am to 5 pm. However, according to the global Internet survey done by the UK Sleep Council, the Mediterranean Atlantica online Gold siesta was the right idea all along. The UK Sleep Council called on the country’s bosses to end nine-to-five working in favor of more flexible hours. They believe what would really pump up the pulse of worker productivity is a nice afternoon nap Atlantica Gold, rather than those bonuses and incentives.
