It's January and the OPI Katy Perry Collection has launched! If you've been following OPI's Facebook Wall, you know that this collection has been in HIGH demand and shipments are delayed as many as six weeks for some retailers. WOW! Go Katy!
OPI Teenage Dream is a pink based polish packed with small disced rainbow glitter (silver that reflects light).
I used a base of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 3 coats of Teenage Dream and topped with OPI Top Coat. Application wasn't bad. Pink can be a hard color to wear because you're not sure if it's opaque or not when suspended with glitter, so I used three coats to be sure but I could have gotten away with 2.
In the sun, this color just looks a bit drab against my skin tone. You can tell there's lots of glitter in the bottle, but it doesn't bounce around on my nails as much. I'm wondering if it's because of the sun being so low in the sky, or what.
Indirect sun - you can see a bit more of the glitter, especially on the pinkie.
In the shade, you can see there is a lot of glitter that is transferred to the nail.
Also in the Katy Perry is a bottle of Black Shatter, so I went ahead and put a layer over after putting on OPI Top Coat. I then sealed it with Seche Vite to give my nails a smooth feeling.
I loved this. I loved it so much I made it my NOTD (Nail Of The Day) and wore it to the gym where I was constantly staring at my nails. The crackle/shatter works so well when paired with a glitter. Uber win.
My only real complaint was removal. The glitter was a pain to get off my nails - so much so that I used pure acetone instead of my normal Zoya Remove+. Otherwise, this is a great shade.
