12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors from Jamie and Katie: OPI Teenage Dream & Sephora by OPI Under My Trench Coat

Some people's beauty obsessions are obvious early in life. For my best friend, Katie Reed, and me, it was definitely nail polish. We've been in love with cool, bold colors since the early 90's -- we used to trade them back and forth while sitting in our high school hallways before class. For the next 12 days, we'll be bringing you some of our favorites in what we're calling 12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors.

Jamie: My choice for today is one of the newer ones in my stash -- and one that I've used multiple times since it came into my life. It's none other than OPI Teenage Dream, which was released as part of the Katy Perry collection in January 2011. And, while I'm not a huge Katy Perry fan, I am completely enamored of this bubblegum pink polish liberally flecked with holographic glitter. It's one of those shades that not only has me constantly looking down at my nails, but has everyone else staring at them, too. It's perfect for everything from a holiday party to a birthday party to just a Tuesday at work (coincidentally, I've worn it to all three).
OPI Teenage Dream really isn't available anymore, unless you can find it at a beauty supply store, like I did. But you can find other gorgeous OPI nail polishes at

Katie: I'm not much for nudes or neutrals, but Sephora by OPI Under My Trench Coat sets my heart atwitter. It's a taupey, brownish tan with a great gold shimmer. My favorites are always a little subversive -- not quite what they seem. I love how this seems like such a mild-mannered shade, but if you catch it in the right light, it's a knockout. This picture is with two coats. I had a really hard time catching the shimmer, but I swear it's there. This polish was originally from the Fall 2009 collection, but is now part of the permanent Sephora by OPI collection.
