I finally found you, my missing puzzle piece ...

I finally took the plunge and now own my first OPI nail polish!!

I've been lusting after this particular shade for months but i just couldn't justify spending £10 on a nail polish :(

After scouring eBay night after night for a bargain but to no avail, i was close to giving up and trotting down to Boots to find myself a dupe  .... and then i found it!!

A gorgeous bottle of pink sparkles. Glittering and gleaming away like a penny in a wishing well ....

I am, of course, talking about Katy Perry's Limited Edition 'Teenage Dream' shade of OPI Nail Lacquer :)

I was a bit apprehensive about choosing a glitter nail polish, flashbacks to my 13 year old self getting ready for school disco's, but i shouldn't have worried.

The polish is a gorgeous sheer pale pink with heaps of glitter running through it. I used two coats which was suffice and left my nails gorgeous and frosted. The polish was thick and slightly gloopy but dried quickly.

I do love the finished look - so sparkly and the pink is a delightful princess pink colour that would look great against a white or black outfit.

I've seen pics of this shade used under a black shatter polish floating around on the net and I'm so going to be trying that :)

What OPI shade should i try next?




  1. I love this one too tho it took me ages to get it off because of all the glitter!! :-)

    I really like OPI Hoodoo Voodoo, I did a post on it if your interested

  2. Reminds me of Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink! Love it!

  3. This is the first OPI i got too! It is really pretty but I found it sooo hard to get off, I was literally trying for hours! xx

  4. Gorgeous colour!

    I love Strawberry Margarita and A Grape Fit (have done NOTD posts on both, have a look if you like!)

  7. I love all of the mini varnishes from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection - gorgeous muted colours. The minis are so much more practical too as don't think anyone would ever use up a 15ml bottle of varnish!
