Try It On Tuesday: Blue for AMC Awareness

Hey Lovelies! Today's TIOT is to raise awareness of Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. Check out jilltastic nail design's blog to read a touching story of her friends son who has it. For today's mani I am trying out the OPI Blue Shatter. I applied one coat of Sally Hansen Blue-Away and one coat of OPI Last Friday Night on top. Once it was all dry I applied one coat of OPI Blue Shatter over the whole nail.

  I have to be honest with you guys.... I hate it! It hardly even "shattered". I owned the Black Shatter before and it had no problem shattering. The only problem the black shatter had was that it dried up really fast in the bottle and became clumpy. This Blue Shatter's consistency is very thin and almost water like so I don't know if they changed the formula or what. Also the blue looks darker in the bottle so maybe I just paired the two colors to close together and that's why it looks like it didn't shatter. I'm going to try this shatter out again but put it up against a white to see if it shatters better. Don't forget to enter my 500 Fan Follower Giveaway! that's going on till July 2nd. 


  1. I think it looks really pretty, even if it didn't shatter very well!

  2. I think it looks gorgeous.. I never would have known there was a shatter involved in this manicure, however, so I can see why you were disappointed.

    1. Thank you! I tried it out again over a contrasting color and it shattered perfectly! I think the colors were too similar :)
