NAILS I LOVE - OPI - Not Like The Movies

Nails I Love

Nails I Love is written to celebrate some of the most beautiful nail varnishes on earth and to help you choose which colours and styles will suit you. 

Each posting will feature details about the colour as well as photos.  I guarantee every photo will show the varnish as it looks on your fingers, otherwise, what’s the point ? 

Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.

OPI – Not Like The Movies

I personally don’t feel OPI have had many “wow” moments in the last year.  I think they have launched some pretty colours, but are at risk of becoming a bit samey.  The truly iconic polishes are few and far between, and they are being out-sighed by the more adventurous brands.

Not Like The Movies however, remains a classic.  It’s a Stop The World nail polish, one you HAVE to own, and one that you find yourself just staring at all day, often with drool.

Released in the Katy Perry Collection, Movies is an amazing identity mess of a colour.  A grey green lilac fawn duochrome with shimmer, this looks like petrol in the bottle, and continually takes your breath away.  It genuinely bends with the light and manages to be both subtle and dramatic at the same time.

I love it, can’t get enough of it, will keep it in my collection forever.  I love that this is amazing without any effort whatsoever.  If you can’t be bothered to do something special with your nails, just pulling this beauty on will do all the work for you.

Just for fun, I then thought I’d crackle every shade out of it and something REALLY interesting happened.  The red crackle?  In certain lights ?  It turns pink!!

PS what the hell do you call this tip wear Sally Hansen - 2 hrs after applying your top coat !!  harrumph

Happy nailing J  Let me know your comments – I’m always interested to know what you think!
