Nail Polish That’ll Make You Purr

So I’m sure many of you have heard about Katy Perry’s nail polish collection with OPI. While you could imagine bright, bold colors and lots of glitter, black shatter is the exact opposite. Black Shatter isn’t exactly a shade, but more like a texturizing topcoat that creates the effect of shattering once dried on any shade of color. Depending upon what you prefer, a thinner coat will cause the black shatter to crack more, creating a leopard print type pattern while a heavier layer will create larger chunks of black. The four nail polish colors in Katy’s collection include Last Friday Night- metallic blue glitter, Teenage Dream- metallic baby pink, The One That Got Away- bright pinkish/red, and Not Like The Movies- shimmery silver. I don’t own any of her colors yet, but I’ve seen shatter on plenty of nails around campus and think it looks pretty awesome.

Katy Perry isn’t the only celeb with a cool, new OPI collection. Serena Williams’ Glam Slam collection is a sports-themed nail polish line that will debut new colors in conjunction with competitions like the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Williams’ yellow-vert color represents her sense of style and will definitely look dashing with Perry’s shatter top coat. Was that a purr I just heard?
