OPI The One That Got Away

OPI The One That Got AwayI finally spotted the OPI Katy Perry collection at JC Penney. The display was in the salon part of the store. I had no idea they even sold OPI, but now I know! I picked up the mini set along with Black Shatter. Usually I’m not a fan of OPI’s collection mini sets. They don’t tend to put the colors I’m want in those sets for whatever reason. But, since the Katy Perry collection only has 4 colors, the mini set includes them all.

The One That Got Away is a purple leaning deep berry packed with light purple and pink microglitter. The shimmer is similar to OPI Merry! Merry! as well as Ulta Star Party, but neither are dupes. Merry! Merry! is less purple and Star Party is much more red.

The formula is a bit on the thin side, but it has a bit of a jelly feel to it so the thin(ish) formula didn’t bother me. I ended up using four coats to cover all the bald spots.

Overall I like this polish. It’s not terribly unique or amazing, and I’m certainly not going to tell anyone to run out and get it. But it is a nice addition to any collection. And I definitely don’t think it’s going to be my favorite from this collection. Not Like The Movies looks pretty promising in the bottle!
