OPI - The One That Got Away

Hello everyone,

How you've been doing? For me this is a very busy week, not only busy at the job, but I also have some job interviews ;) This is a good period for aircraft structural engineers, because there is a lot of movement in the industry and there are some extremely interesting job opportunities... :) I'm only wearing OPI Samoan Sand these days :D I feel the urge to paint my nails orange (I've just received China Glaze Papaya Punch and I'm so excited to try it ooon :D), but I can't :D

Anyways, this could be my Pink-Wednesday or maybe Berry-Wednesday? :) Not sure, beacuse The One That Got Away has a berry-red base with a lot of fuchsia shimmer inside. A very nice polish, but I don't know why I don't find it extraordinary.  It's a bit sheer, so you'll need up to 3 coats to make it opaque. The shine is however very, very beatutiful.

Here I'm wearing 3 coats of OPI The One That Got Away, no top coat:
Taken in the sun.

And for a "classic" look (classic because the Katy Perry Collection was released together with the Black Mesh, that I don't own), I've added one coat of China Glaze Black Mesh + quick dry shiny top coat (NailTek Quicken):

Overall, I like this polish, but I think my favourites of the collection remain Not Like the Movies and Teenage Dream.I also own Last Friday Night, but I'm not sure I'm goning to swatch it alone, because it is more of a layering polish... We'll see. Now  I really gotta go to sleep...
Good night everyone and sweet dreams ;)

See ya! Big hugs!!!
