Black Shatter!!

 Sunday, May 29, 2011

I absolutely LOVE nail polish! That’s where the “paint” in “Paint Me A Love Story” came from (the other half came from one of my favorite songs, “Love Story” by Taylor Swift). I paint my nails at least twice a week to keep them fresh and looking great. When I got my hands on OPI’s “Black Shatter,” I was sooo excited to try it out.

Black is one of my favorite colors and OPI is my favorite brand, so of course I knew I was going to fall in love with this polish. And I totally did, this nail polish is so badass. Crackle nail polish was big in the 80’s and is now making a comeback. To apply, first apply a coat of nail polish, whichever color you prefer (don’t forget to apply a basecoat), and let it dry completely. Once dry, apply “Black Shatter.” This can be a little tricky at first because it dries sooo fast, so try and brush the color on as quick as possible. If you want smaller cracks, I suggest applying a thin layer on top of the already dried color. If you want thick/bigger cracks, apply a thicker coat. Top it off with a good clear coat for a glossy finish. Although effects of this polish shows well with a lighter base color, I’ve tried “Black Shatter” with three different colors and they all turned out great (not all light shades), but my favorite is this combination:
"Dude Blue" (neon) by Milani underneath "Black Shatter"

Black Shatter is part of the Katy Perry collection by OPI. There are other colors in the collection: Teenage Dream (glittery pink), Not Like The Movies (metallic silver), Last Friday Night (glittery blue), & The One That Got Away (deep berry). I do not own any of these colors, but you can visit the OPI website to check them out for yourself:

I got my bottle of "Black Shatter" at Trade Secret for $8.50.

Привет! Мне бы хотелось открыть салон парикмахерскую. У кого-то из читательниц есть опыт в этом? Очень большой выбор оборудования для салонов красоты. Кто может помочь советом? Какой магазин лучше выбрать для то чтобы купить Аппарат электропорации и это Ультразвуковой скрабер. Я выбираю среди этих магазинов,,,
