OPI "Pink Shatter": Swatches and Review

Recently OPI sent me a sample of their Pink Shatter, Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer to Support Susan G. Komen for the Cure, released this month in honor of breast cancer awareness.

I've seen swatches over lighter colors, but none over a darker color, so I decided to swatch a thick coat of it over black :)

OPI "Pink Shatter"
1 thick coat over black, with top coat.

The formula and finish of this Pink Shatter reminds me of the Blue Shatter previously released by OPI.  It is a sheer hot pink with shimmer,  In order to get an opaque finish on my manicure I had to apply a thick layer (thicker than usual;) to the black. I wanted to make sure the pink showed up.  

You should always apply your Shatter top coat once the base coat has fully dried.  I did not, and thus you can see how the polish finished with a "wavy' or "wrinkled" kind of texture.  Kinda cool for a goof! :P

I like how it looks wrinkled w the top coat on...almost like it was intentional. :)

I was at Nordstrom Rack today and saw Shatter polishes...for $7.47. OUCH.
