Since the release of Black Shatter earlier this year, OPI has been on a roll—cranking out their crackling-effect polishes in several new colors. Most recently, the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Collection launched a Silver Shatter, while the latest in the Glam Slam! France Collection from Serena Williams debuted both a Red Shatter and a White Shatter. It looks like this instant nail art trend is still going very strong, because we have three new blue Shatters from OPI, as an expansion of the Shatter Collection.
“Black Shatter was received with great fanfare, showing that women are looking for new ways to express themselves and are excited to try different textures on their nails,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “By adding a variety of colors to the line, there are more options for every woman, whether she is looking for a funky aquamarine or elegant deep blue. Unlike traditional nail art which can be complicated and difficult to replicate, Shatter is easy to use and allows everyone to experiment with this new trend.”
