Color Club – Broken Tokens NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 22 - 2011

“But you said you were completely bored of shatter top coats?”

“I never said I was bored of silver ones.”

Out of all the 24 billion photos of seen of manicures done with shatter top coats this year, the silver ones always look the prettiest to me which is why I actually couldn’t quite restrain myself from adding this to a recent eBay polish haul.  I mean, it’s Color Club… it cost me less than a coffee.

I was too much of an impatient child to apply it over anything over than what I was already wearing so it jazzed up the Nails Inc. OMP! nicely.  It also reminded me how nice it was to have something to breathe new life into a tired looking mani without having to redo the whole thing.  Forty seconds later and I’m getting another 3 days wear from something that should have bitten the dust days ago.

I like it.  But I won’t buy anymore.  No, really.  I’m totally bored of them… unless someone brings out a holographic one…

Ok, we’re really done with this trend now yah?  Just one more? Nooooooo!

    I want the new China Glaze ones, there’s purple and blue, and I’m also hoping the gold Nails Inc one is going to come out soon (I read about it on BritishBeautyBlogger). Then I’m done, lol.

    I’m definitely not done with it, I’ve only got black at the moment. I really want a purple one and silver is looking pretty good!

    I am too afraid to buy cosmetics from eBay. Not because I worry about getting ripped off, or stuff not coming, but that I might spend too much money and the fed up Mr telling me to sling my hook. Color Club, you say….. ;)

    I own shatter polishes…I agree though, a bit of overkill now – every colour of the rainbow.
    I have the OPI silver shatter polish (can’t remember the name). It’s BEA-utiful & will be my go to polish while I’m on my hols.
    A normal manicure usually lasts me a week with minimal wear…so after my first week of hols I’m hoping a coat of silver shatter and a top coat should see me through for the whole fortnight…fingers crosses. Should be better than the 6 polishes I took with me last year!

    A good shatter polish can disguise a thousand sins!!!

    This is so funny, you, my order of black and silver OPI shatters arrived in the post today, these aren’t common in the Philippines and what’s usually new here is what just went out the trend exit door in the Western world since we’re so far away and stocks of this aren’t readily available.

    Review up on mine soon, one that will join thousands of shatter chatter posts on the world wide web, I like somehow that even though I’m late, I’m part of it nonetheless. That’s the sucker in me LOL

    It looks lovely on you but I think I would have chosen a different base color beneath, but like you said, you simply wanted to test it out :)

    Ahhh so you are also craving a holographic shatter eh? I think it’s only a matter of time before one of those will pop up somewhere :D

    This is pretty though!

      I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that they’re not far off – may even be Nails Inc that are doing them??

    I have four. This is worrying. I hope Barry M brings out some more colours though.

    I’ve got OPI black, silver and red. I love the silver as its not so common here in New Zealand. If I wear black i feel like im competing with half the teenagers around.. It’s far too common for the likes of me! :P

    I’d like to say that i’m tired of the crackle trend but I haven’t even tried it yet. I’m so behind when it comes to nail stuff! xD I’ve just started makeup so It’s no wonder.

    I love the silver crackle, it’s great because it matches most colours :) A holo crackle, now they would be fun! xx
