Reader Request: OPI Moon Over Mumbai

For Natalie.

OPI Moon Over Mumbai is a sheer dove grey shimmer with a hint of lavender. I love this color because it's soft and clean without being pastel or stark like a white. It doesn't hurt that it makes my hands look elegant.

The closest colors I could find to OPI Moon Over Mumbai are Essie Great Expectations and Avon Urban Grey. The Avon is a creme and more opaque and a hint lighter. The Essie is a bit more sheer and the shimmer is a bit more pronounced. All three are a very close match.

Essie Great Expectations and OPI Moon Over Mumbai are available at TransDesign. All three can be had from Ebay for between $3 and $5.

Sometimes it sucks being British. Not often.

YOU'RE GREAT,I LOVE YOU GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I happen to notice you don't have any H&M polish in your spread sheet, am I right?

Karina - They are pretty aren't they?

Jaljen - prettythingsforyouandme*123 on Ebay ships Worldwide and has good prices. I have bought from her with no problems at all.

Oyku- Damn! My Avon doesn't have shimmer! I even put the bottle up to my eye really close to see. Looked stupid doing it too.

Natalie - You're welcome. I have one H&M - Bella's Choice. I have't worn it yet or put it on my spreadsheet.

Funny, I had both MoM and GE in my basket today, but I was unsure so I put them both back on the shelf. Now I know to go back to get MoM. It looks very elegant on you.
