I never was into shatter or crack. Butttt, when OPI came out with their new shatter colors, I decided it was time to dip my nails into some crack : ) . I finally tried this today and honestly I'm not too excited about it. I got navy shatter and I wished it would appear as a brighter navy. Perhaps the Sally Hansen crackles might've been more what I was looking for.
I used Sally Hansen CSM in Yellow Kitty. This was three layers and it might've needed four if I wasn't going to layer something on top. Then I applied my shatter. The thicker the coat, the larger pieces in shatter. But it was hard to apply a thick layer without redipping into the bottle.
What are your thoughts on shatter and crackles?
