OPI Pink Shatter

Happy Halloween everyone!  I didn't have time to do a festive manicure so I will share with you something still related to October:  pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Below I'm wearing OPI Pink Shatter.

Here it is plain over naked nails.  I don't know why but I like these shatters plain sometimes.

I tried it over DS Bold but it was very subtle.

This over $OPI 212.  The thicker your coat, the wider the cracks.  My middle finger was a very thin coat and my index was thick.  I think I like the wide cracks better.

Did a really thick coat on my thumb!

Bonus shot: here is a pink glitter I made.  I'm hoping to include this in a set for the holidays if I can get a base soon.

Pink Shatter is like all the shatters I've used so far.  They dry quick, 1 coat is all you need and this one is for a good cause.  Here is their press release:

Each bottle of Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts has a special pink-ribbon tag and pink cap wrap to call attention to breast cancer awareness.  OPI will also be making its annual donation of $25,000 to Komen for the Cure. Pink Shatter coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and it also features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.

The limited edition Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts will be available throughout the months of September and October 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

Have a fun and safe Halloween!

Pink Shatter sent to me for review.


I was editing older posts to reduce load times on my site and I accidentally published one of my drafts, so feed readers you get to see my unfinished post of the Miss Universe collection sorry!

I'm soooo ready to go with the frankens just no base.  I still have 4 bottles of the Glamor Base from TKB Trading from several months ago I have been using it to make my testers.  I wanted to make a Halloweenish franken and this is what I came up with.

I don't think it screams Halloween sadly.  I failed to put more orange in lol. 

Afternoon Tea

 Finally a use for my small HK teacup!  Royal milk tea is sooo yummy.

One of the 5 glitters I will have for sale as soon as I can get my hands on a base.  The company I was working with their lab is in NJ so they got hit with the hurricane and everything was delayed.  I have no idea when they can ship me anything, in fact I've waited all week to hear back from them about a realistic time frame and no response.   I have been waiting now for 2 months and now I'm feeling stressed out because I don't even have a base to work with.  I might need to find a new lab to work with asap.

So anyway that's the only update I have for you today.  This glitter is gold and silver hex in various sizes.  Have a good weekend!

OPI Glam Slam! U.S. review and swatches

 Pros & Bronze 3 coats.  This one is very pretty. It's packed with gold, bronze and even pink glitter and it dries very smooth with a metallic looking finish.

 Love is a Racket 2 coats.  Very bright shimmery red.  So bright it was difficult to photograph.  It was a nice pink and golden shimmer.  This is very similiar to I Love You Cherry Much by Nicole by OPI.

Here is a quick comparison. 
To the naked eye, I personally don't think there is any noticeable between the two.  There is a tiny difference in the shimmer in ILYCM, it's more glass fleck-y and it is just a tad more deeper red as well.  I mean I'm really nitpicking here.

I liked Pros & Bronze even though it wasn't as opaque as I would have liked it for wearing alone. Love is A Racket is a pretty red color but I think I Love You Cherry Much is a better version of it.   Both applied very well and dried fast.

Sent to me for review.

Color Club Nomadic in Nude

I'm wearing 3 coats and this is on the second day of wear.  I'm still wearing it and today is day 3.  This is a nice light nude color it looks very nice on my skintone.  I went to Ross a couple weeks ago and snagged the 7-piece Boho set.  They had the foils too but I wasn't feeling them for some reason.

I have decided on what frankens go for sale next round so I will show you very soon!
