OPI Katy Perry Mini Nail Lacquers

This new OPI collection just very recently released in stores so I'm trying to get the swatches out as fast as I can and give you my first impression. Unfortunately, I was not able to get Shatter because it was sold out. It's actually the one I was looking forward to the most because of the cracked effect it gives to your nail polish.

Anyways, instead of buying a full size bottle, I opt for the mini set, which is perfect if you want to try all the colors like me but don't want to spend a fortune. However, if you can see yourself using a particular shade a lot, you should definitely get the full size bottle. I purchased this set for $12.50 at Trade Secret because I was at the Mall the other day. Each mini bottle contains 3.75 mL or .125 oz. Oh yeah before I get into the details, forgive my uneven nail because it broke on me last week.

Not Like the Movies - this nail colors gives you a trio-chrome effect of silver, purple, and green. It has flecks of silver shimmers that adds a little bit of sparkle. It's very similar (if not a dupe) to the new Wet N Wild Gray's Anatomy's nail polish. I will do a comparisson on a separate post. This color reminds me of a pearl or the inside of an oyster shell. It applies sheer so I had to do 3 coats to reached a more desirable opacity. Not too crazy about this one but I still like.

Last Friday Night is a very sheer blue nail polish with teal and silver glitters. I would have to say, this is my least favorite color from this collection. As a matter of fact, I don't like it at all! Perhaps if I apply it on top of another nail polish, I will find a better use for it but on its own, it looks very boring. On this swatch, I did 3 coats.

Teenage Dream is a sheer pink nail polish with pink and holographic glitters. I like this one a lot better than Last Friday Night. This can actually be worn on its own and still look pretty. 3 coats.

The One That Got Away is a deepened raspberry color with blue undertone and bright pink shimmers. It looks a lot more shimmery in person. I think this color is very bold and gorgeous! My favorite color out of this collection. I did 2 coats.

Overall, the formula of the glitter polish felt goopy and thick. You'd probably need at least 2 to 3 coats to get a decent amount of glitters. The drying time is average.
The formula of the shimmer polishes are smooth and apply evenly. They don't take too long to dry either. Not like the movies runs a bit sheer but The One That Got Away is pretty pigmented. This collection doesn't impress me. I think I would have been happy with just Shatter. Even if I don't have it yet, I've seen swatches of it and it looks pretty awesome. 

Do you plan on getting any of these?


  1. I have been to many Ulta's trying to get my fingers on the OPI Shatter too! And everywhere I go, it's sold out. I feel like this is the Naked Palette Story all over again! Boo! I hope we can find it soon. I love the whole shatter effect!

  2. I called Ulta today and asked them if they have them and they told me it's all sold out. If they don't get it this week, they wont be getting anymore. :(
