China Glaze Haunted vs OPI Metallic 4 Life

Pin It
Hey guys,

I was having a look through the swatch vault when I noticed I had pics of 2 blacks with silver glitter in it. I actually have Nubar Knight's Armour as well but no swatches, darn it!!!

The OPI & ChG are in no way dupes, but I thought it would be interesting to see which one you all preferred!

Metallic 4 Life - 2 coats - natural light

Haunted - 2 coats - sunlight

So M4L is a mix of small square and small and large hex silver glitter in a black base. It has great pigmentation needing only 2 coats for full coverage and it dries without much texture. The formula is fab!!
Haunted on the other hand has fine silver glitter in a black base. This too has a great formula and application is nice, needing 2 coats. It dries smooth as well!! I just managed to get a bit of cuticle drag that could have been avoided if I'd waited a little longer to apply the second coat.

I am a huge fan of both. In the photos Haunted doesn't look as impressive, but in person it's really nice and a sophisticated way to wear black. More of a daytime or subtle polish. Whereas M4L is a super awesome in your face polish that would be perfect for a party!!

Which one do you prefer? Or do you dislike them both?




I just had to include some photos of Buster having an afternoon nap because I miss him so much! He was sleeping under the blanket but by the time I got the camera ready he woke up and rolled out!!! Only 1 1/2 weeks til I get to kiss and cuddle my little rascal! I hope he hasn't changed too much!!!!!!

  2. Your puppy is adorableee! :3

    I like both of them. Metallic 4 Life is more in your face bling, but they're both really pretty dark but not boring colours.

  3. Ohmigosh HULLOOOO BUSTER you are the cutest ever and I just wanna squish your little face! Hope your week and a half goes crazy fast -- that FACE!!!

    Oh and the polishes are great too. :) I usually prefer the smaller glitters, and frankly didn't want to fall in love with the Minaj collection, but something about that hex glitter mix is really stunning. I want to try it on like every color I have.

    1. thanks, me 2!!! He's the naughtiest puppy in the world though! He just chews everything and doesn't respond to being told off, he'll just hide under the furniture chewing my things!!!!
      I didn't want to like the Minaj collection either but I ended up getting Fly and M4L cos I really couldn't resist once I saw swatches! I just can't believe how amazing the formula is on it. OPI is stepping it up on the glitter front!

    1. Yeah, your tastes are so specific!!! From reading your blog I think you're a bit of an autumn colour palette fan! But then you seem to like blues too. So hard! It's good to know what you like though. I'm still all over the place!!!!

  6. OMG...those pics of Buster are so suuuuper cute! I can't even stand it!! Your blog is great. I just found you from a link at another site. Honestly, I checked out your blog because of the picture of your baby as your favicon. But I did add your blog to my following list because I love all your manicures! I love that there are other people out there that are as crazy about their pets as I am.

    I love the M4L. It is fantastic...I just added it to my shopping list for today! Hope I can find it. Thanks for the great pics of both the manis and your baby... keep 'em coming! I look forward to more.
