Austin-Tatious Turquoise

I was really "wow-ed" by this color!  When I first saw swatches and promo pictures, I wasn't too interested in it.  But, thankfully a good friend sent a bottle to me and I'm SO glad that she did.  I LOVE this color!  I would have missed out on its awesomeness had she not surprised me with it.

Here it is before I added the nail art.  Look how it glows!

Playing with Katy Part 3

Originally I had two pictures of this mani.  One with the OPI mini bottle of “Last Friday Night” and the picture you see below with Sally Hansen “Pacific Blue.”  But,  I deleted the OPI pic thinking that I had a copy of it in my Blog Folder of Pictures.  Guess I should have double checked that folder before emptying my recycle bin!  Grrrrrr.  Lesson learned.   Anyway, it’s the mani that counts, not the bottle you’re holding. 

I really like "Last Friday Night" but I wouldn’t wear it alone.  It would take WAY too many coats which would equal a total nightmare come removal time.   This is just one coat on top of the Sally Hansen on my ring finger.

Playing with Katy Part 2

Not like the Movies -
This is my favorite color of the collection.  If I were to purchase any of the Katy Perry colors in a full size bottle, this would be the one.  I love the interesting duo chrome of purple and gray and the fact that nothing in my collection comes close to it. 

The One That Got Away -
This is my least favorite of the collection.  I wasn’t impressed by it at all.  It’s not a bad color, but it doesn’t seem terribly unique.  It reminded me a lot of "Let Me Entertain You" which was part of the Burlesque collection that was released just prior to this one.  In my opinion, "Let Me Entertain You" is WAY better!

Playing with Katy

Recently, I got the mini set of 4 Katy Perry collection by OPI.  While I’m not a Katy Perry fan, the colors intrigued me.  First up is "Teenage Dream."  I used it as an accent on my ring finger on top of "Taupe Drawer" by Pure Ice.
