O.P.I Black Shatter Review!

Hey loves! Here is yet another manicure floating around on the interwebs featuring O.P.I Black Shatter...hahaha. I am sure most of you have seen or used this polish or something similar but here is my take on it!

Two coats of Not Like The Movies..a pretty duo chrome. This polish changes colors depending on the lighting and angles. It's really pretty, it reminds of dolphin skin..ha ha I know that sounds weird but it does...and I am pretty weird so what ever. :)

One coat of the Black Shatter from O.P.I  on my completely dry manicure. It is so cool to watch the shatter take effect I watched almost every nail..ha ha. I was fascinated. It happens almost instantly and dries quickly too! I have seen where people have left it just like this with the Matte Shatter effect..But I wanted to seal everything in and make it SHINE!

I added TWO coats of Seche Vite top coat because I like my nails to feel smooth and 1 coat wasn't cutting it..I could still feel the texture of the Shatter polish. The top coat makes everything pretty and complete. I can't stop looking at my nails ha ha.

I will admit that I have said in the past I wasn't a fan of  the crackle or shatter look but I completely take it back! I had never done it on my nails until this post and I am a fan. I think it looks really cool. I will try it with other bases but I am pretty sure I will prefer it with a base that changes colors. This with a Holographic!! OH MY! I am sure it looks amazing! Hmmmmm..Now I am thinking of which Holo I want to try it with. ha ha. What are your thoughts on this effect? What combinations do you think would work? I am pretty sure I will be picking up the China Glaze Crackle polishes in all of the colors. Thanks for reading!
