This was my first opi nail polish and I am very impressed! I would defiantly recommend this to my family. The application of the product is very easy, apply it like normal nail polish and it will soon shatter. I have noticed it looks best with bright reds and black.
I wasn't impressed with the other colors of the shatter(I've tried the black & white also). They both seemed a bit too thick when I put them on and dried up very quickly(even when I checked the lid to make sure it was on tight enough). This one seemed totally different. I layered it over Red polish(Go Ohio State Buckeyes!). The shatter seemed to go on in all the right places and show just the right amounf of both colors. All in all a good product. continued >>
I generally love the shatter/ crackle polishes. I read that OPI ones were particularly good, so I went ahead and ordered this one. I was sadly, sadly, disappointed. It's a beautiful silver sheen, but it only seems to crackle/ shatter nicely half the time. Sometimes the entire nail is covered in silver, with just one crackle down the middle. On one of my pinkies, there aren't any crackles at all! But, on some nails it looks great. Overall though, for the OPI price tag, I wouldn't buy it again. If I want shatter- I want it to shatter consistently on all 10 nails! And this just doesn't do it.
I thought that it was bad from the day i got it it was very gloopy because of the glitter and it is very hard to aplicate i quite frustraited because i love the shatter affect it was $30 dollars so I expected alot more
This was my first OPI purchase, and I really like it! I used a cheaper crackle polish and had such a fun time with it, that I decided to get this one, since I found it on sale. I generally have a really hard time spending more than $1 on polish. I've always been of the opinion that it is merely glorified paint, why on earth am I going to pay $8 bucks an ounce?!
Though I still feel that way, I've realized that I can sometimes notice a significant difference in the more expensive ones, and here is one time that I did!
The consistency is just amazing! The silver itself is beautiful, heavily sparkly! And the crackle effect looks great. I would recommend, to the people who've had poor results to give it another try. I found that it works best if you apply a thin coat, very quickly. Works great every time for me!
I got this with Mermaid Tears, I like the mermaid tail effect they give together. It's my fav nail combo and looks modern and beachy. It dries super fast and always shatters for me. I like applying it quickly for the perfect shatter, if you take your time and do 3 seperate strokes it doesn't look as good.
To get the shatter effect surely needs practice, but I gave this 2 lippies because the formula got so thick and gloopy so fast (after 2 months of the 'official' bottle opening) it was so darn difficult to get an even coat. Very frustrating. Planning to get some lacquer thinner to thin it out. But i do love the metallic finish, it was the reason why I bought it in the first place.
Amazing color is the only good thing about it. It didn't shatter at all
I'm only giving it a two because it's such a pretty color. On the downside, I don't like how it doesn't give as much of a shattered effect as the black shatter. I've tried applying it several ways, but I never get the right shatter. Maybe it's just my bottle?
Love this colour. Looks amazing teamed with black. Good quality. Thick so you can see the colour very nicely with only 1 coat. Would defanitely buy again
