Now, I know the fact that there is a cracking polish in this set will excite my overseas readers who can't get enough of, or even get their hands on BYS cracking polishes. However the promo picture shows the polish in just patches, I have never seen a cracking polish do that, in fact, I don't even know how that kind of effect is possible to tell you the truth. I think the end result will look much like any other cracking polish you've ever seen.The polishes in the collection are called Simply Smashing and Black Shatter. I kind of had images in my head of Simply Smashing being tennis ball yellow. How awesome would that be?
Moving right along, OPI also have a collaboration with Katy Perry coming up. I am pretty excited about this. Katy seems like my kind of girl when it comes to nail polish and design. Did you see that time she had Oompa Loompas on her nails? Killer.
Left to right - Last Friday Night, Not Like The Movies, The One That Got Away, Teenage Dream and Black Shatter.
They all look pretty good to me. OPI are trying to get that Black Shatter polish out to us in a big way. I think this is going to lead to all the big brands inundating us with crackle polishes, not that that's a bad thing.
A quick look at the Oompa Loompa nails just because they are awesomesauce.
(**Photo from Katy Perry's Twitter account**)Then we have the collaboration that has pretty much convinced me that Armageddon is upon us. Justin Beiber and Nicole by OPI. I shit you not. I honestly thought this was a joke when I first heard it. Yeah, well, it's totally not. So teeny boppers and "too scared to admit loving him for fear of being locked in prison" adults unite! Here we go - The One Less Lonely Girl Collection.
Left to right - Me + Blue, Step 2 the Beat of My Heart, Give Me the First Dance, One Less Lonely Glitter, Prized Possession Purple, OMB!
Wow. Those names. Just...wow. I can't even imagine how embarrassing it would be to own even one of these polishes. (**I don't suppose anyone can pick me up a bottle of Step 2 the Beat of My Heart? You know, just between you and me.) Available Dec 2010.
Left to right - Party in the Penthouse, Too Rich for You, Nicole...Spotted! and Scandals, Secrets and Sparkle.
Moving away from collaborations, we have Essie's 2010 A Winter's Tale Collection.
I am pretty sure I want, no need, this whole collection.
