OPI's The one that got away (#NL K08)


I thought I'd share this gorgeous polish I got a while back and have worn several times already but hadn't swatched yet: OPI's The one that got away (Katy Perry collection).

I absolutely adore this polish. It's formula and color are just pure pefection to me. I'd say it's a deep pomegranate foil type lacquer with magenta and very discreet gold shimmers. The shimmers are rather big and almost look like fine glitters. 
Oddly enough, this lacquer reminds me of a pomegranate and plummy version of Chanel's Graphite that I swatched last month.

I applied three coats of color followed by some Sèche Vite to get some extra sparkle but you could get away with 2 and no topcoat; that's how shiny and sparkly it is!

I don't know about you, but I think that Katy Perry's collection was awesome, absolutely awesome! Such a great collaboration. The only one I didn't get was Last Friday Night. 

Do you guys like/have this collection? What do you think of it?

Have a nice Sunday!

  1. I love this color, I feel like this is the ignored but lovely sister of the katy perry collection. I know everyone went gaga over the glitter polishes from that collection but I didn't like them too much myself, this is the color I love!

  2. I agree with you and love it too :)
    Although I do really like Teenage dream. It's a pain to remove but it's gorgeous.
