What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

I wanted to love the Shatter trend, but I just don't. It's not for me at all.

It's a bit loud and choppy. But, that's what I like about it, along with the color pairing that can happen.

It's odd that I hate color on my face, but love it on my nails.

I hadn't thought of that.

I think I'll get the black (and silver) when I can.

It's not the funkiness I dislike.....it just looks weird on me, somehow. Loud.
i tried again..the dots are in green so the colors are yellow, red and green..i like it

Have you gone outside of OPI for the shatter/crackle yet? How do you like the other colors from OPI? I only have the black from them. Sally's is two minutes from home (and I pass Rite Aid on the way to work) so getting the China Glaze and SH ones has been more convenient for me.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

That's a bummer about the white. That one looked really interesting.

Do you have a pic of it on your nails? I'd like to see it.

It's really hard to find the stuff around here. It sells out instantly.

ETA: I found the SH in a Rite Aid, and a ton of it. It doesn't seem to be a store to draw the fashionistas the same way Ulta does, so that may have something to do with it.

Luvmylocs, sorry I didn't see tour post! I use all kinds of techniques.

I'm thinking of putting a nail tutorial on YouTube. Does anybody have a suggestion as to what I should do?

I'm taking off the polish for today so I can redo tomorrow.

My nails are getting pretty yellow. I've been using one of those sticky base coats, but that obvioulsy wasn't enough to prevent yellowing.

Is there a base coat that prevents this, or is it inevitable?
