OPI Katy Perry Collection:The One That Got Away w/ Black Crackle

Hello Lovelies

Hope everyone is having a great start in the New Year.

I've been hearing Katy Perry's song, The One That Got Away a lot lately in the radio and decided to dust off my polish by the same name and show it off.

Let me say that The One That Got Away was part of the Katy Perry by OPI limited edition collection that came out I think around this time last year. But before I decided to post about this color I looked online and saw that it still available through some e-tailers as well as on Amazon. So if you really like this color, you might be able to get your hands on it.

Here's what I ended up with.
The One That Got Away w/China Glaze Crackle polish
in Black Mesh

2 coats of The One That Got Away over 2 coats
of China Glaze Base Coat

I really like this dark raspberry color, mostly because it's packed with
metallic shimmer in the same tone.
The only thing is if I were to wear this color alone, I would probably
do 3 or 4 coats just to make it darker.

Now I didn't want just to polish my nails, I wanted a little something extra. So
I decided to add some Black Shatter, that also came out in the Katy Perry collection.
I went to open bottle and it was just impossible to get open.
So I grabbed my China Glaze Crackle polish ,which gives you the same effect
and used that instead.

Above we have CG Crackle in Black Mesh over One That Got Away. Black Mesh dries
matte so if you want to bring out the shine, you must
add a topcoat like I did below.

One Coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat. As u can see I
need a new bottle lol. I love that stuff.

So there you have it, hope you enjoyed this quick mani :).


  1. Do they have gold crackle? I think the base color would look great with gold crackle.
