Shatter Effect Nail Polishes from Beauty UK

Since Barry M launched their black shatter polish a lot of brands such as OPI have followed suit and it looks like they are still to be popular trend over the summer! Beauty UK have launched their own version of crackle polishes in pink, black and silver; and if you are on a budget priced at £2.99 each they seem to be the cheapest on the market. I am a big fan of Beauty UK's eyeshadow palettes - they are brilliant size for travel, excellent quality, highly pigmented and amazing value for money.

Shatter Polishes in Punk (Black) and Glam Rock (Silver)

The silver shatter polish was quite thick to apply compared to the black shade but dries almost instantly. From a little bit of experimentation I have found that the crackle effect polishes work better over the top of a polish with a less shiny finish, almost matte finish. I found that once the the shiny polish had the crackle polish over the top the shiny coloured undercoat tended to slide off. I also found that the black crackle polish looks best with nudes and neon brights underneath,whereas thesilver metallic crackle polish looks best with brights and darks underneath for a contrast.

Are you a fan of the Shatter effect?
