Looking for a funky idea for your nails??? Here’s an idea: try crack” or “shatter” polish.
Released by OPI at the beginning of the year/late 2010 “Black Shatter” crack polish Is part of a celebrity nail polish collection collaboration with tennis star and nail fanatic Serena Williams as well as pop star and California girl Katy Perry.

but What is it exactly? While it actually looks more complicated than it really is, crack polish is a special top coat applied to your regular nail color that gives a “cracked” effect on the finish.

Here’s a how to!!

Step 1: Start with clean nails and apply your base coat.
Step 2: Apply your nail color as usual. Depending on the colors your use, you can get away with using a single coat as long as it’s even. While skipping the top coat, allow your nails to completely dry so the crack polish doesn’t penetrate to the nail color and dissolve it. Your manicure will be splotchy if you skip this important step.
Step 3: Apply a thin coat of crack polish, making sure not to go over the same section more than once.

Step 4: Depending on the brand of crack polish you use, this step is optional. OPI “Black Shatter” has a matte black finish so you can leave it matte or apply a topcoat for a high gloss finish.

and of course you know your Salon ‘Suqa’ is gonna be doing this – so pop in for a try!!!
