OPI "Shatter" Nail Polish

 
 

I was so disappointed with this. I am a big fan of the Barry M Crackle and Croc nail effects and expected this OPI one to produce similar results. As you can see from the photos of two different nails that I put it on, it just looks a bit cheap. Each nail looked different, which I found a bit strange as I applied the same amount on each and in the same way.

It didn't last long on my nails and started chipping quite quickly. I don't think the "shatter effect" works well in red to be honest, so maybe the results would have been better for a black one. However, in the future I think I will be sticking to Barry M for fairly cheap and creative nail effects.

Has anyone else tried the OPI shatter polishes? What did you think?

  1. I suppose it does look a bit like a pizza!

    I love the OPI nail varnishes but have never tried the crackle one. Maybe they should stick to the plain ones they are good at. I won't bother trying the fancy ones now!

    1. Haha- yes it's a good job I didn't put yellow nail varnish underneath! Yes, it's a shame, I was so disappointed! xx

  2. I agree the Barry M polishes are fab and so cheap too! It's a shame about the OPI one as their varnishes are usually pretty good. x

    1. I know- I love all the Barry M ones, they're always bringing out new ideas as well. Yes it's a shame, I'll be sticking to the plain OPI ones in future xx
