It's odd that I hate color on my face, but love it on my nails.
Color I don't have an issue with, I guess it's just the choppiness I dislike. Boo, I thought I would like it. Usually I go for somewhat offbeat styles.
I have all the shatter colors, and the black one is the best IMO. I don't get choppiness with it and I love that my manicure doesn't have to be super perfect underneath. Shatter cleans things up for me.

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.

What I meant by choppy is that it isn't just one smooth color the way a regular mani is. Some just won't like the aesthetics of the look. I'm not fond of the French manicure and manicures where the tips are different colors than the rest of the nail because of the nail breakup/chop it gives. Others love that look.

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.

I haven't looked into crackle yet, but I'm thinking about it. I need to figure out if it's on the ground. So far, the black is my fav. The silver and turquoise are nice. The red and white are blah but white is the worst and I had high hopes for it. I haven't used my navy blue one yet.

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.

I don't. I haven't done a mani with it yet since I was saving it for the 4th of July.

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.

Zoya Gemma. Love it in the bottle, but not sure that I like it on my hands. I am not very good with greens. Thought this one would be different for me.

I have done newspaper and it turns out pretty good. It might take a couple of tries to get it right, but it's worth 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?
