OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam France: Rally Pretty Pink with Red Shatter

Here is OPI Rally Pretty Pink (from Serena Williams Glam Slam France) with Red Shatter on top. I have to admit I was initially a little underwhelmed by the pairing of these two polishes, I wasn't too sure they would work together, but boy was I wrong!

Red Shatter, like most crackle polishes dries with a matte finish. However the big surprise with this polish is  almost jelly like finish, allowing the polish underneath to actually show through slightly. This effect is absolutely stunning, especially with this colour combination, it looks like a radiant jewel, and is very reminiscent of Traditional Indian Wedding colours (See pics below). Once topped with Red Shatter, the gold tones of Rally Pretty Pink stand out a lot giving this combo a gorgeous contrast!

The top coat seriously makes this combo dazzling and very jewel like, I really love this set, absolutely gorgeous!

Application Tips:
  • As with most shatter/crackles, Red Shatter applies best in non-overlapping strokes and as quickly as possibly. 
  • I found that applying it thickly creates the best effect in 3 strokes. 
  • Make sure you wait a few mins for crackle to dry before applying Top Coat, if it's too wet the cracks will be a little blurred around the edges!
