OPI presents – Katy Perry’s Shattered

So there has been a lot of buzz around nail polish lately, specifically the Katy Perry OPI line. It is a 5 color line of polish that came out in January. There are four base colors, and the Shattered polish, which is the big draw of Ms. Perry’s line.Basically, the Shattered color is applied over any other shade of nail polish and it creates a, well, shattered effect. It looks like the base color is cracking thru the black color.

It is hard to find, but I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I ordered it on-line. Here is what the set looks like:

Teenaged Dream
Teenage Dream
Last Friday Night
Not Like the Movies
The One That Got Away
and of course, Shattered!

So I tried the Shattered on top of a base coat of The One that Got Away.

Here is a close up...

I think I need to try it with a different base color, something that makes it pops more. I don’t think “The One That Got Away” allows the effect to stand out. Maybe a neon base might be fun. I think it is fun and a great change of pace to the basic mani, I think, given a little thought, I could come up with some fun and funky uses for the Shattered polish.

What do you think of my Shattered manicure?

Have you tried Shattered on your own nails?
