Look! Sun! We had sun for more than 2 minutes today.
See? In the photos where the purple or pink flash is less apparent, just imagine it being there, in the parts that aren't green...
And yes, if you're starting to think that the index nail looks a little different- it is. I coated it, along with my thumb, with two coats of LA Girl Metal Obsidian, to see if Not Like the Movies behaved differently on top of black. You can see that once opacity has been reached, somewhat, there's not a big difference, except for the mourning line, sort of, that makes the contour towards the cuticle sharper. What you see here is four coats on middle, ring and pinky, and as many as three coats over Obsidian.
So, yes, it is sheer, but it's worth it. The photos do not do this polish justice. If you're thinking of getting just one bottle from the Katy Perry collection, let this be the one.
In some ways, I think of it as a cross between the once so hyped Sally Hansen HD Opulent Cloud, and one of my personal favourites, OPI's Brand New Skates- but still totally different. It's unique in my collection. And yes, this post is a complete rave. No downside can kill this one for me.
