I had heard so many great things about O.P.I's latest wonder, Shatter, on various vlogs and blogs these past few weeks. So many, in fact, that I was actually willing to pay the full £10.50 that it retails at. If you haven't already realised, I don't usually like spending more than about £5 on nail varnish because I have so many colours that I only get to use a colour about 10 times before they go gloopy with age. I'm normally a fan of Barry M nail varnish because they come in practically every shade of the colour spectrum and beyond... but as I approached the nailcare section at John Lewis, I knew I wanted O.P.I's Shatter.
And wasn't I dissapointed. No, it wasn't rubbish; it was sold out. So I have yet to try it.... There I was, in the middle of John Lewis: my face drooping, my feet dragging, and a raincloud directly above my being, spitting imaginary water on my soul.
Luckily, Wonder Woman came to the rescue and told me Barry M does an similar replica of Shatter, called Nail Effects. She should get a promotion for outstanding customer service - just sayin'. And it got better, as I was ready to leave for Superdrug, I found (and bought) the Katy Perry x O.P.I nail varnish! YAY! It comes with 4 different mini nail colours, all named after songs from her album, Teenage Dreams.
SO, below are photos of my nails (and the nail varnish) after painting them with O.P.I's The One That Got Away and Barry M's Nail Effects. I would recommend both!
P.S In case you're wondering, I did buy all of the above with my own money. I haven't been sponsored or anything. Obviously. I'm not exactly a Blogging phenom. Wouldn't be the greatest marketing move...
