Lately, my mind has been marinating on the upcoming holidays. One of my favorite things about American Thanksgiving dinners is eating turkey with cranberry sauce which is exactly what today's Manicure Monday reminds me of. OPI's The One That Got Away is a gorgeous glass-flecked polish from the Katy Perry collection and stunningly Fall-appropriate color. Let's check it out below.
My eye gravitated toward this bottle because of the amazing, slightly multi-chromal shimmer. The chrome effect is much more pronounced in the bottle than on my nails, unfortunately, but the end result is so beautiful that I can forgive it.
On the nails, The One That Got Away becomes a highly reflective raspberry with shimmers glinting hot pink. It actually reminds me of stained glass due to its rich color and slight translucence.
Here I used a base of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 3 coats of The One That Got Away, and Seche Vite top coat. This was a thinner formula that applied easily with my favorite wide brush that OPI polishes have. Each layer also dried quickly.
Overall, I'm loving this polish on my nails as a gorgeous, not-quite-vampy shade. It has enough depth that it reminds me of gemstones and I have a feeling it will look lovely on every skintone. It may be a work-appropriate, but far from boring. Love!
