OPI Just Spotted the Lizard with Black Shatter and Flakies Too!

Hello everyone! These pictures are a bit older, but I really liked this manicure and don't know why I didn't upload this sooner.

I know shatter has been beaten like a dead horse, but I thought it would look really great over a duochrome like OPI Just Spotted the Lizard. This is 2 coats of JSTL and 1 of Ardene ACO Black Shatter. You see those little bitsy flakies? They are Sally Hansen- Glass Slipper, a super neat polish I debated for way to long before I bought it at the drugstore. There are some really neat topper coat style polishes in the Sally Hansen  Diamond Strength line.
Just some varying finger angles, displaying almost every color this polish turns.

I hadn't worn OPI in a while before this polish, so I was super impressed with the 4 day wear I got out of these.
I particularly like this angle. I wish the shatter didn't get all wonky on my pinky but it still looks okay.
I was happy when OPI released it's personal version of the Chanel Peridot color because I really liked it, but just couldn't dish out that much money for a polish.
So I totally think that now is the time for a nail polish company to release magnetic shatter with matte glitter. JUST KIDDING! No more shatter (or magnetic polish either for that matter!) I think the next polish company trend needs to stay with duochromes, and holographic polishes. What would you like the new polish trend to be? Leave me a comment below.

Happy nails!☺
