OPI Black Shatter Review and NOTD!

If you follow me on Twitter you might have seen my rant about not being able to find this anywhere! My Ulta was sold out and I called every beauty supply store in my area! I was on a mission to find this and I was NOT going to give up! Ha ha!

There were a couple stores that were closed when I called, so I called them up the next morning and one of them had only one bottle left! I asked them to please hold it for me and they kindly did. :)

I was so happy  to get one because I wanted to see what the big deal was. I also wanted to see how it worked.

I have to say I am LOVING this Black Shatter nail polish. It is so unique, funky, artsy, and pretty all at the same time.

My husband says it looks like I went and had my nails done and someone actually took their time making all these designs on my nails.

I read that some people were having trouble with it shattering, and it didn't do a good job at separating but I had no troubles at all. You have to let your color/base coat completely dry then apply the Black Shatter.

Also a tip for you, depending on your nail size, make sure you have a good amount of polish on your brush and try to cover your nail with the Black Shatter in one swipe.

This was my Super Bowl nail of the day. As you can see I was going for the Steelers but sadly they didn't win. I am wearing two coats of MAC Phosphor nail polish, one coat of Black Shatter, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

The Black Shatter nail polish does dry to a matte finish so if you want shine, you need a top coat.

Overall I love OPI Black Shatter. If you like funky nails definitely pick it up. I recommend it!

I'm going to try and get my hands on a few more bottles so I can giveaway, but hopefully I'll be able to find some!

Check your local Ulta and Beauty Supply Stores for OPI Black Shatter.

I couldn't find Shatter in any ULTA stores but was able to order three bottles of it on Amazon.
