Oh hey, everybody! Lookit! It’s me playing with my Revlon Black Magic and the new Limited Edition OPI Metamorphosis Collection!
What is Metamorphosis? It’s 6 shades that contain “polychromatic glitter particles” to “put you and your nails into instant party mode”. Or, if you’re me, it’s 6 shades to slap right over my favourite OCW (One Coat Wonder) black polish.

Lemme tell you what you’re about to see, k? It’s a single coat of my Revlon Top Speed Black Magic 890 followed by a single coat of whatever OPI glitter coat I’m using, finished with a single coat of my Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat. Yep, 3 coats in total for these fun, iridescent glittery thingies.
OPI Butterfly Me To the Moon over Black – OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above). The payoff in one coat of this stuff is swell. I didn’t have to fish or wangle or shake my bottles like crazy before applying. Application was remarkably easy.
OPI You Little Shade Shifter over Black - OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above).Yep, two blues in this collection but as you can see, not the same.
OPI Can’t Be Camouflaged! Over Black – OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above). And there are two greens but again, not similar, and not the same. And is it just me or am I getting kind of an Essie Encrusted Treasures kind of feel from these? Granted, these are a bunch more iridescent but still… kind of the same feel? Yes? No?
OPI Ecstatic Prismatic over Black – OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above). You know you don’t have to use these over just black, right? You can totally slap ‘em on over whatever you like! I would highly suggest you try your combinations on a wheel or on sticks before you commit though. They do chuck different colours at you depending on your angle of viewing, so you need to be sure you pick a complementary base.
OPI Metamorphically Speaking – OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above). Just looking at this bottle, you’d never really be able to guess this much green would pop out over black, right? That’s kind of the fun of these shades – they really do make polishing entertaining!
OPI This Changes Everything! – OPI Metamorphosis Collection 2018 (above). And lastly, this one! Over black it comes out a little bit murky but I’ll betcha that if you tried it over white, it’d come out looking like a whole different kind of thingy!
Ta da! The 6 limited edition shades that can be worn however the heck you want! Can you use ‘em straight up? Sure! Why not? Can you use ‘em without top coat? Sure! Why not? Can you mattify? Yep!
I really think that if you find these bottles interesting, you should pick one up, grab a swatch wheel, and play with it. It’ll learn you all the neat ways to use iridescent glitter coats. There’s so much you can do with these that one bottle will give you countless different manis. To me, the best part about the OPI Metamorphosis Collection is that it’s crazy flexible.
