Hi guys! I was feeling inspired to try some new combinations with OPI Silver Shatter, so I decided to try it with Zoya's beautiful dark gray matte, Loredana! I don't even really like matte's, or dark colors, so I have no real idea what posessed me to order Loredana, but I am so happy I did! Loredana is a beautiful shimmery gray, and it looks so smooth with two coats, great coverage! I wore this at my bachelorette party with topcoat, it also looks beautiful that way!
Anyways here is a photo of Loredana before the shatter!
SO NICE!!!!!! LOVE IT.
And here is Zoya Loredana with OPI Silver Shatter on top! My crackliness is kind of hit or miss. Sometimes it crackles beautifully and sometimes it just has like one tiny line and you can't see the base color at all. I have to say, I'm not very impressed with OPI's silver shatter. (Disclaimer: I haven't tried any other brands of crackle or any other colors from OPI's Shatters). I am having this bizarre issue with the polish getting clumpy at the top of the bottle around the neck and I have no idea why, the bottle is clearly shut so there shouldn't be air getting in. Is anyone else having this problem? Should I contact OPI, maybe I have a defective one? Should I take it back to Ulta? What other brand should I try, as a replacement? I definitely still want silver! Just not very impressed with this overall - and what is the secret??? I have tried thin coats, thick coats, it never consistently crackles well, what is the deal!? OK done ranting....here is Loredana with silver shatter!
As you can see, the silver shatter crackled beautifully here! I was realllly happy with this combination, and I love the contrast between the two gray shades! :) I was really sad to have to take it off (to go to work)!
Hope you guys like it! :)
