OPI - Teenage Dream

I've been looking for this polish for ages and finally picked it up this weekend! Teenage Dream is from OPI's recent Katy Perry collection. It is a cotton-candy pink loaded with silver shimmer and big flecks of rainbow glitter! I'd noticed from other blog posts that it seems to be sheer, so I layered it over Sinful Colors' Easy Going, an almost-white pink that helped to make this solid. What you see is one coat of Easy Going topped with 3 coats of Teenage Dream.

I also took a video of this in the sun so you could see how it sparkles and shifts.

  3. Ooooooh.... Sparkles! Is it a sheer that looks best over a light pink or could it go over any color, do you think? How do those super-sparkly polishes feel to the touch? I'm concerned that it might feel like having coarse-grit sandpaper and get snagged on things, so I want to know if it lays down smooth.

  4. Mom: Thanks! :)

    Lauri: Isn't it something? And thank you very much, I do my darndest to keep them in good shape.

    Melissa: The base definitely has a pink tint to it, but it should go alright over anything pink, red, or white.. Maybe even black! Here's a look at it with nothing underneath: http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2011/01/opi-katy-perry-collection-swatches-review.html As for roughness, I find this one to be moderately rough due to the large flecks of glitter but all you need to do is put on two coats of a good, thick topcoat like Seche Vite (you can get it at Sally's) and it'll smooth it right out.

  6. Good reference. I'm thinking it could look pretty good over red... Not that I'm obsessed with red or anything. :c)

  7. Tobey: This is one of my 'traffic accident' polishes, the kind that are so sparkly you stop paying attention when you drive.. :P

    Melissa: Well, have I got something for you! http://www.vampyvarnish.com/2011/02/09/plethora-red-pink-nail-polish-valentines-day/ This has red upon red upon red as far as the eye can see. :)

  9. Love this! It may be my new pedi polish! I'm so jealous of your gorgeous nails. I'm so hard on mine and gardening season is coming soon which is really hard on the hands so I have to enjoy the pedis even more!
