Nail of the Day: Katy Perry for OPI in Teenage Dream

Been wanting to review the Katy Perry OPI collection. The collection was so popular and so sought after that it started selling out in certain websites. I know I only wanted 2 of the 4 colors in this collection in the full size but it was sold out. And beauty stores weren't selling any until the end of January. I ended up buying a mini set of 4 of Teenage Dream, Not Like the Movies, Last Friday Night and The One that Got Away. You can purchase the mini collection set here.

Even though I bought the mini set, I still wanted 2 full size of Teenage Dream and The One that Got Away. Below I will be featuring Teenage Dream.

Normally, I don't like glitter nail polish. They are such a hassle and a pain to remove. But I've learned a trick to make the process of removing glitter polish easy. Right before applying the glitter polish, layer a base coat on bare nails, followed by a nail shade on the sheer side and then apply the glitter polish.

I am actually surprised that I liked this shade. The texture is not too gritty for a glitter polish. I used 3-4 coats because I really like to lay on the color. I then topped it off with my favorite top coat Seche Vite. The polish itself has both fine and medium chunks of glitter. It is a perfect pink, lavender and silver glitter combo.

Give it a try if you can still find it! It's very pretty and very girly. Perfect for the coming Spring/Summer.

Happy Valentine's Day- Nail of the Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all celebrating this day with those close to your heart.
In honor of today, I wanted to post this nail of the day. I decided to use China Glaze's Sexy Silhouette (fitting name for Valentine's Day;) Surprisingly, I went towards the non-tradtional route and opted for a pink-berry nail hue as oppose to traditional red. I thought this color is just as pretty, girly and feminine and exudes the same sense of sexiness as red does.

Just to experiment, I layered a shimmery pinky-lavender nail polish from Wet n' Wild's Spring 2011 color in Hannah Pinktana. It gave a slightly pinker sheen against the berry color of Sexy Silhouette.

What are you all sporting on your nails today?

I wish you all a very Happy Valentine! Enjoy every moment of this day. Wherever you are, I hope you are celebrating today with those you love:)
