    BTW Does anyone have any tips on making your nail polish last longer? I use a base coat and a top coat, plus make sure the actual polish isn't applied too thick, and yet it still comes off in less than a day! It's crazy. Advice?

    Make sure the nails themselves are not oily. This could be your natural oil or from hand creams. Since you said you are using a base & top coat...it was the only thing I could think off.

    I took it off my fingers after an hour because I didn't like it. I'll try putting it on my toes next time; it'll probably work better. I'm pale too (and it seems to accentuate that which I love) plus I always like things much more if I can associate them with something I enjoy so I'll just keep thinking 'apples apples apples!'

    The polish actually reminds me of a mermaid. You build it up with layers to give it depth. The base is a sheer navy. Then there are flat, round, reflective, metalic discs of several sizes. It's unusual, beautiful & "fancy".

    I have Across the Universe on my tips and It's Raining Men (classic red creme) on my toes.

    That one is really pretty too!

    My daughter got Happy Birthday, the multicolor glitter in a clear base. You can apply it over color or wear it alone.

    But...be aware, like every glitter polish I've ever used, it's more difficult to remove.

    I'm wearing OPI Silver Shatter over a black polish (Sally Hansen Black Diamond). I can't count how many people have stopped me and asked about my polish! It is quite the conversation starter. If you haven't seen it, you paint it over any color and the sliver gives a "cracked" appearance, with the base color showing through. I tried to snap a picture with my cell phone, but the color just didn't turn out ...

    Ooooooh, shades! I am hunting all over for that silver shatter!

    I got lucky & picked up two bottles of the China Glaze shatter in the grey (which I kept) and hot pink (which I gave to Sofie). I put the grey shatter over Deborah Lippmann's Pop Life ( a hot pink) and every single day I got numerous compliments.

    This is so cool the way it looks, the way it dries & makes the shattered effect. Key is to make sure the polish under the shatter layer is completely dry.

    Today I am wearing ESSIE's Turquoise & Cacos under the China Glaze grey shatter. And the compliments keep on coming!

    My daughter & I visited an ULTA on Sunday, we closed the place down. So much fun! They had a very small collection of Butter London but they said that they would not be restocking it. Picked up some British Racing Green, which I'd been wanting anyway.

    The original intention was to find OPI shatter polish in black & silver. We found the black but not the silver. Everywhere we looked (about 6 places) they were sold out of the OPI and the China Glaze.

    I am wearing ESSIE Skin Deep on my left hand & Lapis of Luxury on my right, then the OPI black shatter polish over all the nails. It's interesting, the shatter pattern on Skin Deep (pale pearlized pink) is much smaller & even than the pattern on the Lapis of Luxury (a creme). There's a significant difference in the type of pattern...just an observation.

    OPI will be coming out with more shades of shatter soon.

    On a nail board I read, the reviews were good for the China Glaze shatters (called "cracked") but terrible for the Sally Hansen brand.

    BTW, I ordered the DL Across the Universe polish! I'm very excited to get it!

    Hi ladies.
    I haven't bought new nail polish in years. Last summer my cousin made me try her navy blue polish and I hated it. But today I was just in a certain mood and picked up a few new colors to update my nail polish wardrobe. Started with a grey Revlon called Winter Mist (which I applied and am rather likin') & a 5 pack of elf in various current colors. What fun
