Right now on my hands, I have a nude color by The Color Workshop that I was inspired by Haley Williams on the cover of Cosmo and it's cute, and on my toes, my sister made me get hot pink when we went for pedi's. Pics soon.

I so want Black Shatter.... that would probably be a polish I wouldn't care about the price but I can't find it anywhere on ground here. I know there are some other brands that have this type of effect but I can't think of them, do you guys know?
I'm also not one to buy expensive polish. I like many of the 99 cent brands. I do love Sally Hansen Insta Dry and get it Buy 1 Get One 1/2 off so it ends up being $3.75 per bottle and even that seems like alot to me.
I got my Shatter/Crackle polish on Ebay for pretty cheap. There are lots of brands on there in many different colors now.

Bright metallic blue.

I always get it all over the skin around my nails, and have to sleep and shower before it looks normal.

I'm beginning to want the Shattered.

China Glaze makes a variation called Crackle Glaze. I think there are 6 colors in that collection. I found my Black Shatter at my local bss. None of the major stores I checked like Ulta had it in stock. My local bss even said they're getting the silver one this week.

I was tempted by the silver crackle yesterday but resisted. I bought the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean minis collection. The colors are really pretty.

Anyway right now I'm wearing OPI feeling hot hot hot. It's my fave pink. Nice and bright but not neon (although I love a good neon pink). For some reason this polish is holding up much better than usual. Probably to tease me since I bought new polish.

I just put on Zoya Dove (pale gray). I think I like it but I'm not sure because I usually wear neutrals/nudes so this is like putting blue np on for me.

Zoya Dove is my absolute favorite color. I think it looks great on all skin tones too.

Toes are a sparkly hot pink for now. Fingers are Zoya Kat (it's not as coral IRL as it looks here, it's rosy pink):

These aren't my nails, but look very similar to mine in color, length and shape. Same polish, which looks a lot lighter in most other pics I see - but this color is closer to accurate.

fingers - Sally Hansen Insta Dry in Presto Pink
toes - China Glaze in Long Kiss - been the same for awhile. polish lasts a long time on my toes so I only change up the color once a month unless I want a special color for some reason.

Fingers are done in China Glaze Watermelon Rind
Toes are done in China Glaze Ruby Pumps

I saw that my local Sally's have out a China Glaze Crackle, has anyone tried that? Does it look as well as their add did? I almost got some, but went with a few other colors for summer instead.

I got my toes done today, so I was excited to be able to participate in this thread!

I THINK I'm wearing OPI It's All Greek To Me polish... But I'm kind of not sure, because I couldn't quite decide between that and another very similar color. So, we'll just go with that.



I love staring at my toes when they've been freshly pedicured... They look so purdy!

My fingernails are nekkid, though... I tend to chip them seconds after leaving the nail salon, so it's really for the best. :P

Zoya Marley. Tomorrow I think it's going to be either OPI Senorita Rosa-lita, or one of the nude holos I love.
