After my last nailpolish post, I learned you guys love nailpolish- just like me!! :D hehe...so, this is another one about OPI shatter.
You may have heard about this "new" nailpolish with the name crackle, shatter, crackling, or something else :P basically it's nailpolish that CrAcKs over another color, giving a very cool look.
Putting this nailpolish on takes some effort for me, because you need a base color, shatter color, then top coat. (some people apply a base coat too, I didn't) Also, I'm not a very talented nailpolish applier so this took me several tries.
When i first got it I tried it out right away and it turned out HORRIBLE. (that's what the picture is from) I put it on too thick so it didn't break up much, which just looked weird.
When I did it today, my sister managed to do one of my nails perfectly on first try. And out of my 9 remaining nails, I ended up having to do 5 of the nails again...and 1 of them 3 times. :D hehe yes I'm not too good at this :P
I suppose I'll show this in steps (so much to say it's confusing how to put it!:P)
Step 1: Base color
|It's hard to get a complete picture with uneven fingers :P|
|Nailpolish colors used!|
|my window ledge :P|
Step 2: Shatter! (the second picture is in process of shattering- it literally takes seconds!!)
|In process of shattering!|
|before top coat|
|with top coat!! shiny!! :)|
|top coat used...Sally Hansen Strengthening Topcoat|
How's it look? When I re-did several of my nails, all 3 layers came off super easily. :)
Here's the enamel I used specifically:
|Sephora OPI Go with the Flow-er|
|OPI Black Shatter|
|Rimmel London Green with Envy|
|this is the nail from step 2 with a top coat! :)|
|this is from my webcam...so it's blurry :P heehee|
that's it! :) hope you liked it... if you want shatter and/or crackle, hurry! because these are running out everywhere! :)
If you want to know more about the process, search OPI shatter or China Glaze crackle on youtube-- there are lots of videos on how the "paint drys" :P but seriously- it is a QUICK process!!!
lastly- as i was taking this pictures my sister and her friend were getting ready for a party, and my sister goes, "why are you taking pictures of your nails?" and i'm like, " i have to blog about it!!" hehe
hope you have a lovely day INSHALLAH! :)
