Nail of the Day: OPI Katy Perry "Not Like The Movies"

Today's NOTD is my second favorite polish in the new OPI Katy Perry collection (Teenage Dream is my first) and is named after one of my favorite songs on her album: Not Like The Movies. This is a very complex color and very hard to photograph. It is a duochrome gunmetal grey with a subtle green/purple/pink duochrome. It's absolutely beautiful and much more wearable than I expected... this seems to find a way to match all of my outfits! The only disappointment I had with it is that it's pretty sheer. You really need 3 coats to get a solid finish.

natural light, 3 coats

Would you wear it?

  6. could we maybe call this a sort of dupe for black pearl?
    or is that just wishful thinking from an owner of "not like the movies" who wont shell out $25 for a nail polish?

  7. If u can't find this. Grey's Anadomy from Wet m Wilds fast dry collection sounds like a dupe. Oh an Sally Hanson's Strobelight from the extreme wear collection is a dupe for Teenage Dream.

  10. Revlon's Silver Screen seems to be a good dupe for this. Haven't tried it out yet, but I think I'm gonna go with that one instead of OPI since you said it was sheer.

  11. I can wear this on my nails for a week straight and not be tired of looking at it and telling different people about how it looks different under different lighting.. and it looks amazing layered under Black Shatter :)
