OPI Katy Perry Collection

One thing I’ve always admired about Katy Perry is her nail fashion! Do you remember her Willy Wonka-inspired Minx nails? Or her bling-tastic disco ball nails? How about when she wore now-hubby Russell Brand on her nails?!

I am not surprised that Katy Perry collaborated with OPI to come up with the Katy Perry Collection for OPI, which launches this month with four nail lacquers and OPI’s newest trend, Black Shatter crackle polish.

OPI said this collection is inspired by Katy’s cutting edge style and latest album, Teenage Dream. I felt the colors were fun, friendly and flirty, the way that Katy appears to be, to me anyway!

Swatches will include the color, then pictures of the color with Black Shatter on top.

Teenage Dream is a sheer pink jelly base LOADED with holographic round glitter and tiny pink glitter. What a gorgeous color! It’s a bit sheer after two coats, but it’s perfect with Black Shatter on top!

Last Friday Night:

Last Friday Night is a pale blue jelly LOADED with round irridescent glitter and small irridescent glitter. It’s sheerer than Teenage Dream after two coats, but I love this! I love irridescent glitter and don’t see enough of it! I think this is more unique than Teenage Dream. And it’s my absolute favorite under Black shatter!

The One That Got Away:

With Black Shatter:

The One That Got Away is a gorgeous berry packed with sparkle – it seems glass-flecked to me. This wasn’t my favorite. It looked nice under Black Shatter – I tried to get creative and did designs with the shatter on my middle nail, and pinky. It turned out nice on my middle finger but my fast attempt at a half moon crackle didn’t work out so well! I even waited a while to see if it would crack a bit but it didn’t!

Not Like the Movies:

With Black Shatter:

I saved the best for last! Not Like the Movies is my favorite from this collection! What a gorgeous green and purple duochrome with silver sparkle! This is the only one I did not like under Black Shatter. I would MUCH rather wear this one without it than cover up it’s duo goodness! *swoon!*

I had no application issues with these polishes. I love the two glitters – and that there was a holo and an irridescent! I loved Black Shatter over those glitters, too. The One That Got Away – it’s pretty but it didn’t make me swoon. Not like Not Like the Movies!!!

The Katy Perry Collection by OPI will be available this month at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and Ulta. The polishes retail for $8.50 ($10.95 Canada).

What do you think? Are you excited for these polishes? Which is your favorite Black Shatter combo!? Let me know in the comments!

    Teenage Dream looks exactly like the Gelish I am wearing right now. I just love it and can’t stop staring at it.

    That Black Shatter is awesome too. I love how it looks on! Genius!

    Love Not Like the Movies! Gorgeous duochrome. Don’t think I’d wear that under the black shatter polish. Like all the polishes and cant’t wait to buy them all. I like the manicure with The One That Got Away under the Black Shatter.

    It’s hard to tell the difference between Teenage Dream and Last Friday Night,as they are both so sheer. All of the colors are pretty,and especially with Black Shatter. My fave,though, is Not Like the Movies. Love the duochrome!
