OPI: Silver Shatter

I received OPI 'Silver Shatter' as a gift from my mother-in-law the other day and I was so excited to try it out. I wanted to practice with this polish first so I painted it over the polish I was already wearing. (I honestly have no idea what I was wearing as a base, oops!)

No Flash - Index finger not shown because I smeared it just before taking this photo.

The next two photo's are from the look I posted yesterday. I wanted to fiddle around with the application of my Silver Shatter and really like how it turned out over the blue. (Trick: apply your Shatter with a very thin coat. I find it "shatters" better that way.)

I wasn't too fond of the shatter polish with the tape mani, I think I would rather choose one or the other, but I am getting better at applying this (rather thick) polish. I skipped on the Black Shatter but I think I may just have to pick one up. Wouldn't it look fierce over red? I think so! :)

Let me know, do you own a shatter/crackle nail polish? If so, what do you think?
Thanks for reading.


  1. I just got some of the Sally Hansen crackle in black. I had the same idea of putting it over red or a bright blue!

  2. I love silver crackle! I especially think it looks amazing over your blue mani!

  3. Meredith, I haven't seen the Sally Hansen line of crackle polishes. I'll have to keep a look out for them!

    Toesthattwinkle, thanks so much! I'm loving it too. :)
