Shatter Distressed Nails

Friday, April 18, 2014

This a manicure in my blogging folder that I have yet to show on the blog until today. Here's the distressed nail art technique using all shatter polishes this time.

Shatter Distressed Nail Art
Salon Perfect, OPI, Seche Vite

I started with Salon Perfect Sugar Cube on all the nails. Making sure to wipe off most of the polish off the brush, I applied OPI Red Shatter, OPI Turquoise Shatter, OPI Gold Shatter, and OPI Black Shatter. Finished with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

I'm happy to have found a new way to use my shatter polishes since there just sitting in my collection collecting dust. What do you think of these shatter distressed nails?

  9. I really like how you used the dry brush technique with shatter! The shatter pattern is much finer lines and less chunky looking. The layer of polish looks thinner also. I much prefer this shatter pattern than the typical chunky cracked look! :) great choice for colors too!

    1. Thank you! Yeah, the way that I used the shatter polishes here was a bit more flattering that applying the polish full on the nail. I'm just happy to have found a new way to use them up since there basically sitting in my collection, not getting used at all.
