OPI Shatter Series

Sorry for the lack of updates! Today, I'm sharing swatches of OPI's Shatter Series. I've had these for a really long time now... but I've never really worn more than three. >__< Also, when swatching these, for some reason I couldn't get Blue and Turquoise Shatter to actually really... like... shatter! Someone give me some shatter tips. :P So yeah, I'm just going to apologize in advance for the poor pictures. >__<;;

OPI Shatter Series

OPI Shatter Series

There are currently seven colors available in the shatter series. Black (also released with Katy Perry and Serena Williams), Silver (released with POTC4), Navy, Blue, Turquoise, Red (also released with Serena Williams), and White (also released with Serena Williams).

Left to right: Navy Shatter, Blue Shatter, Turquoise Shatter

As you can see... I couldn't really get blue or turquoise to quite "shatter"!! I re-swatched them around 4 times... and that's the best I could get. ): Someone give me tips! Anyone know how to achieve shatters like this? XD

What do you guys think of the Shatter series? Personally, I was fine with black and silver, but I think it's nice of OPI (and many other companies) to expand their lines to include a large range of colors. I'm not super into the trend, but it does make for a quick and chic mani-on-the-go. My favorite really has to be black and silver... and I quite like white. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the swatches!

Disclaimer: These polishes were purchased on my own.


  1. amazing shatter polishes, i really like my silver one!

    for some reason though, I'm not really getting the shatters I want with the silver one =( please do post if you find the solution!

  2. Try thinner coats, that might work. Also, if your formula is thick, you can add some polish thinner. Amanda who runs a blog called Panda Loves Polish tried thinning her shatter and it still worked perfectly.

  3. @ jane: Yeah, silver is good shatter color! (: I'll try a few more methods...

    @ Veronica: Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try it out soon! (:

  4. I tried the silver Shatter that my friend bought. Definitely have to apply thinner coats to correctly see the effect. I have three Crackles from the China Glaze collection, and it works the same way too. Just have to paint on thinner layers :)

  5. @ Christie: Thanks for the advice! :D

    @ Danii: Thank you so much, I appreciate that! <3

  6. I never quite got into the craze of the shatter polishes but you showing them makes me think if i should get at least one basic color. except that i would probably just buy a cheaper korean version.

    Since I haven't tired it myself, I've only seen ppl do and talk about it. I think it depends on the thickness of the coat (try thin/thick layers) and the underlying polish (some work better in combination w/ some shatters)

    i also wonder if exposing it to hot or cold air/heat (w/ blow dryer) would do anything but thats one thing i would try if i were having troubleshooting it

    let us know if u find the solution!

  11. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    However imagine if you added some great images or video clips
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this site could certainly be one
    of the greatest in its field. Excellent blog!
