OPI Spark de Triomphe and White Shatter Glam Slam Set

 I decided to FINALLY wear the OPI Serena Williams Glam Slam set with Spark de Triomphe and White Shatter. This was released early last year! I did pair the White Shatter with some other shades before, but I really wanted to wear it with Spark de Triomphe because it was intended with the duo set.
 I don't really have that much to say about White Shatter. It's just your standard white crackle. If you don't want to pay the $8.50 for OPI Shatter, there are plenty of brands that have it for much less. It worked very well for a crackle. Since I used my White Shatter a few times already, I was expecting it to be goopy but it wasn't too bad. Goopy, thick crackles will be as good as new with a few drops of nail polish thinner.
Although these two polishes were meant to be paired together, I think that the White Shatter takes away from the glittery goodness of Spark de Triomphe. On it's on, Spark de Triomphe looks like a silver, but next to the white, you can see that it is a very light gold.

Here are some pictures of Spark de Triomphe on it's own:
 With the flash. There are teeny-tiny micro glitters and some small hexes. This is three coats. You can still even see my nails a little bit under it.
Without the flash you can see my nails less.


  1. Nope...still looks like cracked top of a carton of sour cream. I just could not ever get into the shatters/crackles - the only 2 I kind of liked were gold one and an aqua one from China Glaze - but that's so odd as I look horrible in aqua polish and rare for me to wear a gold polish other than in stamping or nail art. I sure hope OPI puts Spotted into the rest of the world market...if they don't...someone else is going to come up with the formula and take the cake! Now Spotted I love.

    1. I like crackle with some contrasting combos, but this one definitely took away from the base color. I know a lot of people that got into the crackle are over the trend now because it was last year. You also see so many crackles on sale now. I still need to get through all of my untrieds of crackles though!
