I have always been very shy or wearing nail color. Blogging of course gives you the courage to keep trying something new and now I have a big collection of nail lacquer in bright reds and luscious pinks. One of my favorite brands is OPI, I absolutely adore their colors, the quality and the names they come up with for their colors. So when the folks at OPI, India asked us to review their new Shatter range it made perfect sense.
Nail art has been around for a while in India, but only off late have I seen people experiment with it. We blogged about Louboutin inspired nail art here . I am quite clumsy and cannot manage DIY nail art. But OPIs shatter is a great option for a klutz like me! Shatter is basically a nail polish that splits up when worn on top of another color.
I picked the blue shatter as I was curious to see how this would look. But after it arrived, I was very confused with what color to try it with. So, I picked up some of my favorite shades and decided to experiment!
The beauty of using shatter is that you do not have to do anything except a quick thin coat on a base color.
Here I am wearing, ‘A good darin man is hard to find’ by OPI on my index finger, Tulip (Sally Hansen) on my middle finger, Bubble Bath by OPI on my ring finger and finally sunset by Salley Hansen on my little finger.
Here, I am wearing Coral Reef by Salley Hansen on my thumb and drew a single diagonal brush stroke on my thumb. It takes 5 seconds to shatter and the results are cool, what do you think? One can experiment with various base shades and brush strokes.
Here is the rest of my experiment! Which one do you like?
Personally, I love the one on my index finger and the ring finger. If I can get the stroke right, it could be a cool new take on a manicure – a shattered manicure 😀
The OPI shatter is available in various shades, they have gold, silver, red, turquoise, a multi colored metallic shade. They are available on nykaa.com and purplle.com.
Cheeky Tip: 1. This lacquer dries ultra fast, so switch off the fan, flex your fingers and be very swift. A single coat is enough.
2. Finish your manicure with a transparent coat to seal the art and for a glossy finish!
(The shatter blue was sent to me by OPI to review, the rest of OPI are my own personal shopping )
