OPI The One That Got Away

The final polish of the Katy Perry collection is called The One That Got Away which is listed as a deep berry.  Now the promo picture was much more purple than my actual bottle but even then my actual bottle picture looks way more red than berry.  It's almost a plum?  There is a shimmer in here too that is a bit goldish but didn't transfer well onto the nail.

I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 3 coats of The One That Got Away and topped with OPI Top Coat.  Even with 3 coats, I still felt this was just a tiny bit sheer and reminded me a little of a glass flecked raspberry polish.
I also had a bit of a problem with application because I had one wonky hair on my brush.  I'll end up clipping it later, I'm sure, but that one hair seemed to drive me nuts.

In the shade you can see a bit of that goldish shimmer in the bottle.  Again, not the most unique color but still not bad.

I also had to add some Black Shatter to top it off.
I really didn't like this as much as I love the Black Shatter over pure glitters.  I think shatter/crackle is a lot like matte... it's fun to play with - it changes the texture and appearance of your nails, but ultimately it's just another step to apply and sometimes you get bored with it.

Removal left my nails just a tiny bit stained red but I just washed my hands with soap and a nail brush and my beds were fine again.
