Orly Passion Fruit + Black Shatter

Yum!

  I loooove passion fruits and Black Shatter... I warned you guys there might be a few appearances of shatter around here haha. So, BIG disclaimer.... This pictures are sooooo not even close to color accurate it's not even funny. My camera was not liking the neon-ness (like that?) of this color and was having a really hard time capturing it. Just my luck, it's disgusting and rainy outside...
Closest to accurate and not very... :( Sorry.
   I just have to say I LOOOVE Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love. It gives this rubberized, smooth matte look to my manis that I just love. I like that it's not a lumpy kind of matte, if you know what I mean where it can almost look streaky and lumpy at times... Not this, this is really smooth and of course it dries really fast.

  So Passion Fruit is a neon Orangey- Pink creme finish polish. That makes sense right? It's like highlighter bright and totally amazing (Not this Red at all). For a neon this polish has a great, even and smooth formula. It is not streaky at all. I used Three coats of Passion Fruit for my mani and I had a little of VNL but nothing too bad. Like I said... These pics.. Not accurate at all lol... My camera does not like neons. So of course I had to add the Black Shatter because I had yet to see it over a neon color and it is amazing! I played around with the application of the Shatter on each nail to see how it would end up on each one. Pretty neat huh? This stuff is fun! After it was all said and done for some reason I wanted the look to be matte so I topped it all off with Two coats of Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love. It looks sooo badass in person!

   BTW did you know that www.transdesign.com has CG Crackle Shipping out now!!! I ordered all but the Black one since I already have Black Shatter. I cannot wait to play around with these.. Sooo many ideas!

Are you guys excited for Crackle?

  2. THIS.IS.AMAZING.

    I am seriously loving black shatter, every body seems to use it differently (one way or another) and it's super cool because everybodys Black Shatter manis are different and unique(:

    Seriously hope they have this at my Regis... if not... let me tell you... it's not going to be pretty ;)

  5. LOVE Orly Passion Fruit..I may need to add that to my list now. And I like how the Hard Candy Matte looks, I have Essie, and it seems kinda shiny still

  6. I'm hugely excited! I can't seem to get my hands on OPI's shatter, so I'm glad other options are on the way.

  7. LOVE IT! The CG Crackle colors looked like so much fun, too! Black Shatter looks great over a neon & matte, too! I wouldn't have expected!

    I totally LOVE that black crackle. I am jealous, seeing as I have absolutely NO access to it here, dammit. I think it looks really better on you, and in your photos than in any of the ads that have shown in mags. Lucky girl. :o)

  9. I love how the shatter mutes the underlying color, and the matte makes this really pop. So pretty!
