Essie ‘Aruba’ and OPI ‘Silver Shatter’

Hello Everyone!

Today’s nail polish look that I am bringing to you uses one type of varnish that was all the rage about a year ago. Shatter nail polishes started to come out in all types of colours and shimmery shades, all over the shop!

I chose Essie’s ‘Aruba’ as the base shade in this look. This is one of my most favourite colours in the world ever, and I have to say trying something new with the shatter polish over the top actually pained me as ‘Aruba’ looked SO good just as it was.

‘Aruba’ is a brilliant polish, it goes on very opaque, particularly on second coat. To me it reminds me of Egypt and Cleopatra when I look at it, it also looks great with tanned skin.

The OPI Silver Shatter shade that I have used in this post looks like quite a dark silver in the bottle, but as soon as you apply it, it actually comes out quite a cold, bright silver. I really like this, as even if you by accident put a thick coat of the shatter on, as it dries it separates just enough to show the colour underneath and it doesn’t make your finished look TOO silvery.

I love the combination of blue and silver together, the more I look at this too the more I think I should probably have done this around winter, but I still really like it.

Have you guys tried any good shatter polishes? Also, what is your favourite Essie polish?

I’m really tempted to get a cool lilaccy blue colour but every time I look at my vast collection of polishes I can hear my cabinet groaning at the thought of the weight of MORE nail varnishes (gah).

Thanks for reading!

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
