Today I have some oddities I found at a discount store (I think it was Tuesday Morning? I really should keep track better, not that one can count on finding something again at stores like that, with their bins of random polish). These are OPI Shatter Paints, which confused me when I saw them, as I didn't remember ever hearing about them, and you think I would have since I was all over the crack craze when it came back this last time. I grabbed both the shades they had in the store, Pink Shatter Paint and Orange Shatter Paint.
Based on the overwraps on the cap, I first thought these were colored crack polishes formulated to look good over a black base, but no, they are like the Pure Ice Vinyl Remix ones, with black crack that makes its own colored base when used over white. I chose FingerPaints Paper Mâché as my base, and topped it with Orly Sec 'n Dry to make sure it was dry before I put the crackle on. My index and ring got the Pink Shatter Paint, with Orange Shatter Paint on my middle and pinky. I got some wicked shrinkage from the base of my nail on my pinky, but other than that, the crack behaved well.
From what I can find online, these are part of a five-shade collection OPI released in Europe in 2013 (the other colors were yellow, blue, and purple). How they showed up at a bargain store in Michigan three years later, I have no idea. I'm glad they did, as you know I love unusual polishes and these fit the bill. Will I wear them for a full mani? Probably not now, but crack will come back, and I'll be ready.
