OPI Nail Look: Silver Shatter and Purple With A Purpose

Purple and silver work really well together, seeing that they both have lovely cool undertones. OPI Shatter is great because even though it's nice and simple to apply, the result mimics a detailed nail art look! The steps are as follows:
  • Apply two thick coats of 'Purple With A Purpose' (or any colour of your choice) and leave it to  dry.
  • To Ensure that the shatter gets even coverage, there is a three brushstroke process in applying it. First apply one stroke down the middle of the nail, and then paint an 'X' shape across the nail. So brush from the left bottom corner to the top right corner, and then brush from the bottom right corner to the top left corner.
  • Once this has almost dried, you can apply a top coat to give the nail a more smooth and even finish. For this I used OPI RapiDry Top Coat.
There you have it! I personally love the silver shatter because out of the ones I've used it has the nicest pigmentation whilst matching almost every colour. Have you tried a shatter nail polish before? :)


  1. I've never tried the shatter look before but it's a cute look! Blue and silver would make a great combo as well.
