Nail Polish of the Week: Black Shatter

OPI just came out with their new Katy Perry inspired colors, and of course I had to have some! I got Teenage Dream, a pink glitter and Black Shatter, one of the coolest colors I have. 

You start off with a blank slate of any color, the little sister did it with a hot pink, I chose to stick with classic black and white. 
I did two coats of white then let the nails fully dry. Once dry, apply one coat of Black Shatter... 
sit back and watch, the shatter effect happens pretty quickly. In the time that it took me to put down the brush and pick up the camera, it had already shattered a lot, Example A: picture 1.

I had trouble finding the Katy Perry nail polish, I usually get mine at Ulta, but they either didn't have it yet or weren't going to carry it. I found it at Trade Secret and also on Amazon.

Nail Polish of the Week: Fash Pack

I forget where I heard it first, but I'd heard about the nail polish brand Butter London, and I definitely wanted to try it. However, I just heard about it and never really looked into where I could get some. Then I was browsing Ulta's website, and came across the Butter London line. At $15 a bottle, its my most expensive nail polish, but its definitely one of my favorites. I chose Fash Pack, which was described on the butter London website as "An edgy and unusual colour. Putty meets mushroom. Sounds strange and wrong, but somehow it works, like deep fried Mars bars. (an actual English delicacy)."

It delivered, I have finally found my long sought after Putty colored polish.  I am most def going to be wearing this color for a while. 
Earlier in the week, my nails were painted Essie's Chubby Cheeks, which is and orange/coral color. I think the picture made it look more orange than it truly is, but not by much. 

And I finally found something to hold all my nail polishes! Although, its already mostly full and I'll probably have to get something else soon. Oh well it works for now.
