Katy Perry Collection "Not Like The Movies" Review

Not Like The Movies is described as "This sultry silver is the real deal" by OPI 

Not Like The Movies is one of 5 colours from the Katy Perry Collection released in 2011. The other colours featured in the collection are: The One That Got Away, Teenage Dream, Last Friday Night, Not Like The Movies, and a Black Shatter.

Not Like The Movies is green/purple duochrome with flecks of silver micro-glitter mixed in.When I first saw this colour in the bottle my first thought was "eww". It looked like a sick frosted mint green and I couldn't imagine why anyone would buy it. I put it on and it was a complete different story. This colour is f*#^ing amazing!! Once on, this polish becomes this amazing metallic duochrome.It appears metallic purple in some light and frosted (frosted eww, I know but trust me it works!) metallic green in others. It's another fun, interesting work appropriate colour, yay OPI!

The formula is another story completely. It's thin. It took 4 coats for the polish to become opaque and even then nail lines were still visible. The polish dried to a lovely metallic shimmer but as the formula was streaky, brush strokes are seen in any light.

The photos below show clear base coat, 4 coats of polish and 1 clear top coat.
My camera sucks so there is really no way to show you how fantastic this colour really is. It's sooo fantastic
