All in all, really pretty, these pictures don't really do it justice. For some reason, it's looking sheer (at two coats) in these pictures, however in real life it looks more opaque to me. Perhaps the shimmer, which is less evident in photos covers up the actual sheerness.
When I first put on Not Like the Movies, I was struck by the familiarity of the strong iridescent pink with fine silver shimmer. It was just like OPI Pearl of Wisdom from last year's Hong Kong collection. Both look a lot less pink in the bottle, however on the nails there's the exact same strong pink iridescence.
Here's a picture of Pearl of Wisdom and Not like the movies side by side. My photos don't capture the pink iridescence well, but believe me it's there! And it's the same! NLTM is POW with a greyed base. I'm now totally convinced that NLTM should have been called Black Pearl... =P
And of course I had to try out Katy Perry's OPI Black Shatter on top.
Finally, some mussels I had for lunch the other day--- the natural iridescence of shells are just so pretty. They were delicious too. I didn't have any white wine on hand, only thyme and olive oil. However, they came out fine--- it's really hard to mess up mussels. Yum.
Finally, thanks again to OH MY POLISH! for gifting me the polish. More to come!
P.S. I was curious what the actual Katy Perry Not Like the Movies song sounded like. With all due respect... gahhhhhh. (Sorry if any KP fans out there). =P
