I absolutely fell in love with OPI’s new Shattered look when I saw Katy Perry’s ad for her new line with the Black Shattered. I wanted to try to do a similar effect with my nails.
I used an awesome gray shade that I bought from Forever 21 and painted several coats of that. Using my black nail polish, I dabbed the brush on my nails, speckling it.
In the end, the overall look was more marbled than shattered. But I still got a lot of compliments and it is an alternate take on OPI’s Shattered.
Update: OPI recently released a Silver Shattered color in their Pirates of the Caribbean collection.

I figured it would be very appropriate to post my findings, tips, and opinions on my blog! The stores that I am going to be reviewing are Forever 21, Wet Seal, H&M, Ross, Marshalls, Kohls, local boutiques and consignment shops.

When I also get a chance, I am going to post images of what I bought from each store, so you can get a better idea of what I am talking about and what to look for. Continue reading →
