OPI - The One That Got Away

Better get those polish posts going, we have so many ahead of us!
This pretty polish came out with the Katy Perry Collection (2010). It is a very sparkly dark pink colour, with hints of some golden shimmer.

The colour is pretty, but spectacular in direct sunlight, which makes this polish great for the beach! However, watch out, since this stains very badly!
Application was alright and so was drying time. I used three coats for the pictures, to get the full effect, but you could get away with just two coats, if you make them decently thick.

The polish started chipping just a bit after about one day, which is of course not good, but after that, it held up for about three or four more days, so I would say just a little below average. Removing the polish was not easy, but also not difficult, although you have to watch out for staining, as I mentioned before.

In direct sunlight (above)! Look how the polish just comes to life! And it is even prettier in real life.

Product (65%) - 7/10 (lost points because of the staining)
Value (10%) - 8/10
Would I repurchase? (15%) - 6.5/10
Packaging (10%) - 8/10

Overall - 7/10
