Beauty Product Patrol: Teenage Dream

By Maggie Malach

Katy Perry is going to get your heart racing with more than just her skintight jeans. Last month the perky popstar released her O.P.I. nail polish collection, four colors based on her latest album. I love adding a little punch to my appearance, so I popped over to Ulta and picked up a bottle inspired by my favorite Katy Perry song, “Teenage Dream.”

I was a bit wary of the glittery finish, but the pink color is subtle enough to keep my nails from going Gaga.  One thing I really like about it is that it isn’t a sheer topcoat — it’s an actual pink polish with glitter mixed in. At the same time, the extra sparkle emboldened me.

The other color I am really interested in trying is the black crackle topcoat.  Although the polish itself was out of stock, Ulta had a display that showed what it looks like, and I am totally into it.

Whether or not you are a Katy Perry fan, if you are looking to change up your nails, I definitely recommend giving one of these polishes a try. They add extra sparkle to your day, and might just even make you feel like you are in a teenage dream.
