OPI: Teenage Dream

I really really really like this polish. I usually am not a fan of sheers, but this one totally works. Plus sheer pink is always easier to pull off than say... sheer green. 

OPI Teenage Dream is jam packed with tiny pink glitter, and has a good amount of large hologram glitter. Very pretty. I actually prefer it here with only one coat. 

When using only one coat I think this is a great polish that toes the line between conservative/work acceptable and awesome/funktastic glitteriness.

Using three coats that whole conservative thing goes out the window - because it just turns into a party on your hands. But who doesn't love that? 

And here it is with Black Shatter over the top of it. I have to admit I wasn't really a fan of Black Shatter layered over the two sheer glittery polishes in this Katy Perry collection when I saw pictures online. However after trying it out for myself I am in LOVE. I absolutely adore the sparkle that comes through the cracks in the shatter polish. I can't wait to wear this again and again. Unfortunately I only got the mini-collection and now after 2 manis and a pedi I am getting a little low on Teenage Dream. I'm going to have to go ahead and order a whole bottle next time I make a haul. 


  1. This recently-turned-40yo (OMG, can't believe I'm now having to type the "4"...LOL) is officially in LOVE with this polish...I didn't want to cover it with BS, but I did and loved that look too. TD is just girly, fun, pink princess fairytale yumminess for any fingers (or toes) no matter the age!

  2. I totally agree! I wasn't looking forward to this but it really is "girly, fun, pink princess fairtytale yumminess." Perfect description!
