OPI "Man of La Mancha"

First ...Thank You to all the veterans that have fought and protected out country, past, present and future! :)
Today I have a manicure that was brought on by my fellow polish blogger Carly.  She asked if anyone had swatched this with a dark red, and I offered to make it my next manicure :)

Carly swatched her OPI "Man of La Mancha over OPI "OPI Ink" HERE. Go check it out, it's gorgeous!

I opted to swatch mine over OPI "Royal Rajah Ruby" and it turned out fabulous!

It is very sparklingly and pretty fuchsia with darker wine undertones in direct sunlight, but in in-direct sunlight it becomes something very different!

*this is my favorite pic*  :) You can see all the colors at once!

Yeah, I know, it's AMAZING!!!!! "Man Of La Mancha" is a reddish orange shimmer, that once layered over many colors, you can see the flashes of red, gold,  and green.  You can see some of these colors in the bottle!

OPI "Man Of La Mancha" is from their OPI Holiday On Broadway Collection from 2003. I only have 2 colors from this collection, the other is OPI "Rent".  From what I can tell these 2 colors are both pretty sheer, but they seriously pack a punch!

 I purchased this beauty earlier this year from a fellow blogger than found it at her neighborhood dusty.   When I bought it I knew it was gorgeous, and I knew other ladies were using it as a layer over other colors, but I had no idea it was THIS pretty!

Thanks Carly for inspiring me to do this manicure.  Seriously, "Man Of La Mancha" would still be sitting on my untrieds shelf if it weren't for you :)

Check out Carly's blog it's awesome!  Lacquered Lover
