Black Shatter & Simply Smash-ing

Something I'm really excited about, OPI's new Black Shatter top coat. I've got it over 3 colors for you today, including the Serena Williams polish Simply Smash-ing.

I've been on the hunt, like I'm sure many others, for a crackle top coat for a long time. I recall having one when I was much younger from Maybelline or Cover Girl. I L-O-V-E-D crackle polish and was very disappointed to find that at least here in the US it was impossible to find.

I even ordered the crackle polish from Transdesign and really, I don't even know what that was but it wasn't polish. Sure, it crackled but it also peeled completely off the nail and what didn't was ridiculous to remove. I really don't feel like it was a safe product even- at least I didn't feel like it was safe.

Which brings me to OPI with Black Shatter! The one thing I am confused about is what collection this is part of, as it seems to be a duo with Simply Smash-ing. But then it says...
..."over any completely dry Katy shade" so I'm kind of confused. Is this in both collections? I really don't care either way, it goes well with either of them!

First I have to show you how it looks over Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry collection...
...With my cute cupcake lip gloss.

...with my cute duckie I got for christmas.

Did I mention I loved this shade? This was so hard to decide to remove and I didn't have a single chip after 4 days- and if I haven't mentioned before I'll repeat: for a glitter this is amazing.

And here is Simply Smash-ing, which I haven't shown you yet. I would call it chartreuse and I honestly don't have anything like this in my collection. This is 3 coats.

Layered with Black Shatter. Can you see the differences in the crackle from finger to finger? On my thumb and pinkie I used a very thin layer and on my ring finger I used a thick one. I do recommend using a top coat as the crackle polish has a semi-matte finish.

And here it over yellow, my current mani (I'll have it without black shatter for ya tomorrow ;) )
