I went to an Asian Nail Spa called VIP Nails to get my acrylics balanced. My normal nail tech was not there so I sat in another tech's chair eager to try the new OPI Black Shatter polish. Since I wasn't sure how I would like it or IF I would like it,
I decided to only have him paint one nail per hand using the shatter. I asked for the base to be a plum/fuschia like color and for each ring finger to be covered with the shatter polish. After applying the plum/fuschia, he let it dry for approximately 5 minutes before putting on the 2nd polish. When he first applied it, it looked as if I would end up with just a plain black nail. In a matter of seconds, the black began to "shatter", just as the title suggest. Drying time was normal.
Here are the results. *the balance job leaves a little to be desired but in general, they look "ok".
It's been a little over 7 days and it is still in tack. No cracks or anything. In fact, it still looks exactly the same! Take a look! Next time I plan on getting my entire hand done by my normal tech. Unfortunately the polish was not for sale, otherwise I would have the bottle at home for a do it yourself session.
