OPI Serena Glam Slam Polishes & Giveaway

By  |  68 Comments

There has been a lot of hype about what seems to be the latest trend in nail polish: polishes that create a shattered effect on the nails when applied over another color. OPI has one, and I know China Glaze is coming out with one soon!

The OPI Black Shatter polish came out with both the Katy Perry Collection, as well as with a Serena Williams polish. Today We’ll be talking about that one!

opishatter2.jpgIf you want the shatter to be really small, like on this pinkie, do a REALLY thin, see-through, splotchy coat of the Black Shatter. You’ll want to make it an even coat, but trust me, it’s going to break apart anyways, and that’s the easiest way to control the shatter piece size I’ve found.

Black Shatter kinda dries to a satin finish, so if you want it to have a high-gloss, vinyl looking finish, apply a top coat. (These photos were taken before top coat was applied.)


I happened to buy an extra set of these, so enter below for your chance to win!! :)

    Oh wow, that’s how you know the 90s are back in full swing! I remember the CoverGirl ones being -really- popular in the mid-90s, and they were actually pretty awesome. Hope the news one live up to them!

    O wow, that crackle looks really good with that gold! How many coats of the gold did you have to use to get it that opaque?
