OPI Silver Shatter on PotC On Stranger Tides Collection

(PotC = Pirates of the Caribbean)

Hi. I finally finished all my tests for this semester. Now I have 3 final papers to go and I can (hopefully) go on to the second semester without worrying about resits. I am taking a short break from my notes (damn those things) and I finally get to watch a football match tonight! It's been months since I've been able to watch one.

Anyway, a quick, picture heavy one since I need to take a shower and decide what I want to do before the match starts. I did two parts for OPI Silver Shatter, the second part will be posted tomorrow. Today's post will be just Silver Shatter on all the colors from the Pirates of the Caribbean Stranger Tides collection, which I swatched here and here.

While waiting for the weather to be nice to me, I wore Planks A Lot and Steady As She Rose for a couple of days and decided to try Silver Shatter on both of them. The other 4 colors I did as skittles. I did 3 coats of everything without top coat under Silver Shatter.

I can't remember which ones were photographed before/after I added top coat on top of Silver Shatter. I'm pretty sure there's top coat on the skittles but not too sure about Planks A Lot and Steady As She Rose.

If I had a penny for every time I've said "Silver Shatter" in this post...

EDIT: I am such a doof. I forgot to mention that Silver Shatter crackles well and I absolutely love it. I want a million back ups and I want to layer it over everything!

I am way sleepy and it's shower time. Barcelona will win tonight! Sorry, Real Madrid/Ivana ;)

  4. I am about to go buy silver shatter this weekend, after taking my finals! Any tips on how to make it "crack" in a particular pattern? I wouldn't want it to overwhelm the background color and cover it up too much.


  5. Irishenchantment - You should get it! :D

    Laura - Make sure your polish is dry before you layer the shatter over it. Thin layers give you more cracks, thick layers less cracks. You should play with the thickness a little bit to see which pattern you'll like. You are going to love Silver Shatter :D
