OPI Not Like The Movies + BM-224

Hey ladies! After having this is my stash for almost 3 months, I have finally gotten around to using OPI Not Like The Movies. I was really excited, because I thought this whole time that mine was the pretty duo-chrome version, but alas! It seems as if I have the regular old silver version. I'm okay with it though... This version of NLTM is beautiful in it's own right!

This is the only flash of duochrome I could find.... Just a HINT of aqua green. It hides most of the time.

Not Like The movies is a pretty, deep gunmetal grey, with a white silver shimmer and larger glass flecks.  You can really see the bits of larger flecks in the last few pictures, but it really shows more on the nail than it lets on in my pictures. This is more of a muted, dark grey silver, unlike the bright blingy-ness of Zoya Trixie. I really like it.... it's a very wearable silver! More like a shimmery medium dark grey.

I finished off this mani by stamping with one of the new Bundle Monster plates, BM-224 and my favourite black stamping polish, Essence I Love My Jeans.

Loving this one! It's a full nail design with colors that aren't so in your face.... very wearable for anyone, in my opinion!

Have a great Thursday! Tomorrow is Followers Pick, GOSH edition! :)



  1. I have the other version of this polish. I love the stamp version a lot!

  2. Ooooh very pretty! I ordered the BM plates, can't wait for them to arrive!

  3. Very Pretty! I have the other version too, but now I want this one also LOL

  4. I didn't know there were 2 versions of this polish. I have the old version which I swatched on my blog. I wonder why there are 2 versions...

  5. That's a bummer that you got the dud :( Get Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy though... It is amazing! Super close to NLTM too :)

  6. This is beautiful. I need some more stamping plates. Where do you get your BM plates?

  7. Pam, you can get them from Amazon. There are 2 different sets... this design is from the set of 25. They're really cheap too!

    Olivia, opi has a bad habit of doing that.... they did it with MPJ too.

  8. I love your silver metallic flowers, your nails are so gorgoeus and so pretty, Bundle Monster plate no. BM-224 and now I have to get this polish, that I love so much, "Essence I love my Jeans! But first, you used OPI "Not Like the Movies, LOL" This is such a gorgeous silver shade...

  9. Wow - I missed this whole issue with 2 versions of Not Like the Movies. I knew OPI sold out of the entire Katy Perry collection first day it was released & they had problems with filling their own distributors orders so they had to make entire new runs when they had not planned on it. I got my 2 bottles of Not Like The Movies from the first batch and picked up a 2nd bottle only because I saw right off it was a duochrome and unlike any that I had. I am glad I stumbled over this looking at your stash list and saw 2 forms of this shade listed!
