Hi everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am super excited that tomorrow is Friday, what a long week! I needed some cheering up, so yesterday I decided to use OPI Teenage Dream, because I hadn’t yet. After looking at the post Liz did about it, I decided I wanted something a little more pink so I decided to layer it.
My pink of choice was Essie’s Need A Vacation, which is probably one of my favorite pinks. I just realized I haven’t blogged that one so I’m going to have to fly it solo in the near future so you all can see! It’s a lot like it looks in the bottle: light, creamy (verging on jellyish) baby pink.
Need A Vacation goes on kind of streaky in the first coat, so I did one coat and it was on the thicker side. I followed it up with OPI Teenage Dream, which is big holo glitter with small silver glitter. It has a nice, sheer light pink of it’s own when done in 3 coats, so with a more opaque pink underneath it gives it an extra boost.
I really liked how this turned out, it was a nice layering job if I do say so myself. I was enjoying wearing it, but unfortunately these two polishes and my base and top coat apparently just did not get along at all. It took a long time to dry and I nicked it while I thought it had dried long ago. After that it started immediately peeling. I’m not sure what it was, could have been the nail product combo, my nails, Thursday, the weather, we may never know… It was fun while it lasted though, so pretty!
Have you all done any amazing layering jobs with big glitters or other polishes from the Katy Perry collection? Comment back!
