If you follow Katy Perry’s style, then you know she’s all about the digits – AKA her nails! That’s probably why she partnered with OPI to make a line of polishes. Like Justin Bieber’s line (yes, Justin Bieber had a nail line), each of the four colors are named after her new songs.
Each shade has shimmer, just like the star, but the standout shades are Teenage Dream – a bubble-gum pink glitter explosion and Last Friday Night, which is also glitter central but in electric blue. If that’s not enough for your mani/pedi, add design with OPI’s Black Shatter. It’s a black coat that creates a crackle effect. All you do is swipe it over your color of choice and watch it crack. Add a shiny topcoat and you’ve got nails just like Katy Perry…
…or like Katy’s Perry’s mom, pictured below. (stole it off @katyperry‘s twitpics)

Okay, these colors aren’t at every salon/store OPI is sold. They’re a little more hard to find, since they’re a haute item, but I got them on a skinny budget on Amazon. For the mini set (includes the four colors pictured above, not black shatter) it’s $8.95 plus shipping $2.95. There’s a good deal going on for a kit that includes five full-size bottles for only $41.00 also on Amazon – technically a better deal than the mini kit and wishing I waited for this deal.
Take Note: The minis are tiny, but it’s the cheapest way to get a sample of all four colors and trust me, you want all four! The bottles may be mini but the brushes works really well and these colors go on smooth. Honestly, I was super excited to wear the two sparkliest shades (work great, but can’t skimp with only one coat), but now I’ve graduated onto the other shades.
Are these nails the best accessory or what?!? Leave a comment, tweet me @trendhungryblog, and subscribe!
