Black Shatter is such a harsh looking finish; I really think it only works for Halloween. I like my pink shatter, the rest I could do without. I wanted to create a Halloween color scheme for this mani so I used Orly Green Apple and Orly Life's A Peach with OPI Black Shatter. Topped with a coat of OTD TC, and this was a simple and quick manicure!
I used 3 coats of both Orlys to obtain opacity.
The green and black look inherently Frankenstein-y. I removed this after about 12 hours of wear; I have a hard time loving the Black Shatter, really. Blarghork.
