OPI’s New Shatter Nail Polish

When I first heard about OPI’s Shatter nail polish from Serena William's Glam Slam collection, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. I wondered if it would actually shatter and if it would look weird. But I knew I needed to try it so I could let you all know if this polish of the moment was really worth it.

Initially I took my own advice (test out risky colors on your toes!) and painted my toes with a glittery blue polish (“Last Friday Night” – [look out for more info on Katy Perry’s polishes on an upcoming Her Campus Beauty School blog post!]). I then went over the sparkly polish with a thin layer (trust me that's all you need!) of the Shatter polish.

The only disappointment I felt as I watched the shatter polish split apart to reveal the glitter was that it didn’t make a snap-crackle-pop sound (how cool would that be?!). But it cracked and dried quickly and I was amazed! So cool looking!

I spent the next few days showing off my toes to my friends — which involved taking off warm, snuggly Uggs and thick socks in this brutal northeast winter weather. Once I realized I was loving the polish and my friends liked it too, it was ready for my fingernails.

I did my nails in a pink sparkly glitter — “Teenage Dream” — applied a top coat to that and then once the top coat was done, a thin layer of shatter to complete my nails.

My nails! What do you think??

As soon as people saw my nails the compliments poured in! Seriously, everyone from my friends to the woman who rang up my salad was asking about my nails! That was the icing on the cake for me, at that point I was already obsessed with it.

I highly suggest treating yourself to this OPI polish. As soon as you get it you’ll want to paint your nails and I would recommend doing a metallic or glittery color underneath the shatter to glam it up.
