OPI: Simply Smash-ing

Trixie of Nailfiled wanted to see Simply Smash-ing from my latest nail packages.  So here it is!


Simply Smash-ing is one of the first of many Serena Williams sets.  Here I'm wearing 3 coats, but in the sunlight I noticed it wasn't as opaque.  So 4 coats may be better.  Simply Smash-ing is a yellow green metallic foil, more chartreuse than gold.  I also noticed some sparse orange shimmer as well.  Overall, the color reminds me of tennis balls.  This isn't a color I'd normally go for, but once I stepped into the sunlight, I ended up liking it.  It's very sparkly and glittery and doesn't look bad on me. :)



Since this was paired with a black shatter, I did that as well.  I actually think they make a nice pairing.  The black shatter really makes Simply Smash-ing pop.  Now if only black shatter had a better formula.  There were literally clumps of polish stuck around the bottle neck from wiping.  It was also really gloopy when I opened it, and I haven't used it much.  I added a bit of thinner to it, and it seemed to be okay.





What do you think?  Too flashy or just right?

    Wow, thank you for showing this! I love the color on you! And I've always loved the black shatter. We experienced the same problem, but with me it's silver shatter instead. I still can't get enough of shatter/crackles! what abt you?

  11. I've swatched my silver shatter on a couple nails and haven't had as much problems as I did with the black. Hopefully it's better than the black when I use it for a full mani. *fingers crossed* I don't own many shatters/crackles, so I'm all for it. ^^
