OPI Not Like The Movies

When I bought the mini set of OPI's Katy Perry collection this was my least favorite of the bunch.  I thought to myself "meh - not really impressed".  But lately I've been wanting to try it out and I actually really liked how lovely this looked on my nails.

How to describe it... In the bottle it's sort of a gunmetal duochrome that flashes both green and pink.  It applied well, but I thought the dry time was longer than most.  I ended up with a few small bubbles - but if I had been more patient, I think it would have been fine - so I'm going to attribute this one to user error.

I took pictures in the sun.  I took pictures in the shade.  I took pictures in my light box.  But try as I might, I just could not coax that lovely pink gleam out for my camera.  So you're going to have to trust me on this one, the pink is there.

I fully planned to konad over this with a black pattern.  But I couldn't bring myself to do it.  Maybe tomorrow after I've had a day to enjoy all the duochromey-ness that is Not Like The Movies.  I used OPI base for this and SV topcoat.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.

See that green?  oh my!

If you look hard enough you can see a hint of pink?

Ok, so maybe I was wrong about you, Not Like The Movies.  I like you, I really like you!

And on day 2 I did decide to konad over it.  I chose a simple design to let the beauty of the base coat show through.
