Polish Pick: OPI Black Shatter

I was going out and needed to retouch my nails. So I threw on a quick coat of OPI Black Shatter to take for a test run. It's the bomb y'all!

"OPI Blac Shatter"

I stopped in Ricky’s by my job on Friday to pick up some fishnets and lo and behold, they finally had OPI Shatter in… so of course I picked up a bottle! If you are not sure what OPI Shatter is, it’s OPI’s version of crackle nail polish just released with the Katy Perry and Serena Williams Collections. I was going out that night and needed to retouch my nails so I threw on a quick coat of Black Shatter.

I was already wearing 2 coats of Wet ‘n Wild Shield from the Craze Collection and one coat each of Seche Vite Base & Top Coats, so I just applied one coat of Shatter and no top coat. Gorgeous, Gorgeous… Gorgeous!!!

The Shatter polish applied smooth, not thick at all. It dried quick to a beautiful matte finish, but I am pretty sure it will look good with Seche Vite on top as well. Loving everything about this polish except for the price… $13.99? Are you kidding me!!!! At least I had a 10% employee discount since Ricky’s is located in the vicinity of my job. Hmph… rolling my eyes.

*I redid my nails and applied Seche on top, even more gorgeous… looks like Minx!

Here are a few pics I snagged of both the collections, including some swatches…

I hear that this polish is sold out already online and hard to find at local retailers. Were you able to snag a bottle of OPI Black Shatter? Love it or leave it alone?

    1. Yeah that is why I opted to get the shatter by itself instead of in the Serena set because Smash-ing looked too dupeable. Shield is gorgeous and only $1.99 girl lol

  1. I can't wait to try this polish!!! I am going to go out looking for it today! Hope I can snag a bottle!!!!

  2. I believe there's a similar shatter polish from BarryM, but correct me if I'm wrong….I don't live in the UK 😛

    1. You are right, Barry M does make a similar polish called Instant Nail Effects. I am glad us US girlies has a version now too as I\’ve been wanting to try it forever! 🙂

  3. It looks nice. I got the Barry M one. I do kind of want the OPI too, but I can't find it. They do the same thing so I'm not really missing out.

    1. Thanks girl and you are right, they definitely do the same thing so there is really no need to have both unless you\’re a collector.

  4. I’m pretty sure I got mine for only $8 at Ulta, I’ll double check my receipt though. Price aside this is so worth it!! I grabbed one of the last 3 bottles and “threw some bo’s” as my man put it on Sunday. It is possible in my eagerness to HAVE this I might’ve “bumped” into a teen and her mom while they were oohing and ahhing over the bottle. I didn’t grab any other colors in the collection though, I did pick up some of the shades from China Glaze Anchors Away. This crackle is going to be perfect this weekend for the Super Bowl. Go Steelers!!

    1. You are probably right. Ricky\’s tends to sell stuff at absolute retail or slightly above it so they probably jacked the price up. I\’m over it though since I am so in love with Shatter lol

    1. I was tempted to get the Serena Williams Collection but the gold was dupeable and Ricky\’s wanted $19.99 for the two. No thank you lol
