Last week I was lucky enough to grab the Katy Perry OPI Collection at my local JC Penney Salon, so today I have 2 from the collection.
I present the glitters..shattered! I was super excited about these two, because I had seen pictures of them under the Black Shatter polish, but one seriously disappointed me, the other surprised me.
OPI" Last Friday Night"
On the index and middle finger, I have 2 coats and on the ring finger and the pinkie I have 3 coats.
I wanted to love this, but the sheerness disappoints me..seriously :( The application was like most glitters in a jelly base, a bit thick, but no real application issues.
The 2 coaters dried nicely, but the 3 coaters, took forever to dry, so then I decided to top them all with OPI's Black Shatter topcoat.
On this one I have one coat of Black Shatter with a clear top coat only on the index finger and the ring finger, so you can see how it looks with and without a top coat. The crackle look isn't new to me, I have several bottles of European brands that I've received from swaps, and I like the concept alot.
With the "Black Shatter" I felt this was much better, but I still have issues. The Black Shatter is awesome, the OPI prowide brush makes all the difference in applying crackle colors. It allows you to apply them in one (almost one) thick clean coat. Because crackle colors dry so fast, fast application is VERY NECESSARY!
The shatter looks great on the 3 coater, but it seriously is thick on my nail. The 2 coater feels better (not as thick), but you can still see the visible nail line, so this isn't working with me, which makes me sad, because I love blues and I was hoping this would work :(
I'll have to play with this one to make it work, because the glitter polish has serious bling!
OPI "Teenage Dream"
It's pink...and I loved it?...I'm shocked..I must be caught in some kind of "Bizarro World"...LOL. 2 coats and this was perfect. This covered my nail line enough that I had no issues with it at all. This is what I wanted the blue one to be. :)
And the bling did NOT disappoint, so when I added Black Shatter and a top coat.... BAM!
Here I applied a top coat on the Index and Ring finger, so you can see the difference.
Black Shatter dries to a texture very much like rubber, not quite matte and not shiny.
So here is my verdict, I LOVE "Teenage Dream", and I am so-so about "Last Friday Night"
What do you think of them?
