Swatch & Review: OPI Regis Pink Shatter

My oldest little guy gave this to me for my birthday recently after I'd been dying to try it out since first hearing about it. I have no idea why this pink shatter intrigued me so much, but since I have a serious thing for pink on my nails, I guess it was only natural that I'd want this! Can I just take a moment to say that I am NOT the type of chick that likes pink in general. I occasionally like it when it comes to clothing, but let's just say I'm not the type of girl that wanted pink walls and a pink bedspread growing up. Girly? Yes. Super pink girly? No!

Anyway, I think part of what intrigued me about this shatter was that it wasn't a metallic pink like China Glaze's Haute Metal, it looked more like a traditional pink polish.

Color Description
This looks like a typical, slightly shimmery pink polish in the bottle. 

How well does it shatter or crackle?
This dried and cracked fairly well, but not quite as well as I thought OPI's Silver Shatter did (see my review HERE). It applied well and the formula wasn't too thick or too thin, but it didn't crack as much as I expected.

OPI Regis Pink Shatter - As you can see, this shatter isn't completely pink, it's more of a fuchsia once dried.

Brush
This has OPI's wider brush, which I tend to find a bit too wide for my nails. I have fairly narrow nails, so the brush is over half as wide as all of my nails and makes application a bit awkward.

Ease of Application
I though this applied well.

Drying Time
This dried quickly like almost all crackles I've tried, but it did take several minutes for it to fully crack.

Final Thoughts
While I thought this was a bit different than other shatters I've seen, I was a tad disappointed by the fact that it didn't stay as pink as it looked in the bottle once it shattered. I also thought it wasn't quite as opaque as I would have preferred it to be. However, if you're looking for something other than the standard black shatter, you may like this.

Price
I've seen this sell for as low as $6 on Amazon or as much as $11.50 in salons.

Where to Buy
It's reasonably priced on several retailers on Amazon. You can view it HERE.

  1. Hmmm.. I really don't like it. I think that the pink is flat and needs something to liven up and`as you said, more crackle/shatter. Loved that you gave a detailed review. Thx =)
