|Black Shatter with OPI Teenage Dream|
OPI Black Shatter is very thick and doesn’t apply smoothly. It dries extremely fast in matte and cracked within seconds after application. So it is advisable not to apply layer and layer again. The size of the crack it depends on how thick is your nail polish applied. Example shown below pics:
Isn't both 4 colors come with different size of crackle and dries matte in color?
- Before applying the OPI Black Shatter top coat, you need to let your base color to dry completely. Else it cracked together with your base color leaving your nails transparent. (Green nail above)
- Since it dries very fast, you gonna apply really quick on your nails and it is advisable to apply only one coat else you have a cracked blackish nails which is really awful. (Pink nail above - 2nd layer)
- The shattering effect is between seconds after application. It's pretty fun to watch and the cracked pattern are very unique and differ each times you applies.
- Black shatter dries in matte and it may chipped off very fast, so applying a top coat would make it look better and last longer. (as picture shown below)
I tried it with different base color and top it with black shatter.
With OPI Teenage Dream
I absolutely adores this black shatter!! I find the this black shatter works better over a The shattering effect glittery holographic base colour or probably a bright neon base color would be awesome too!! The only drawback I find it dries really fast and quite hard to work with. But after a few uses, I'm quite used to it and I find it fun enough when it crackles within seconds.
OPI came out with other new shatter colors such as Silver, Red, White, Blue and many more... (uncountable eh?) Among all the new colors, I still adores this the most. =)
