I believe these are of the same formula as the OPI shatters, so no need to get these if you already have the ones from OPI. 🙂 I have no complaints overall with this collection other than maybe having different colors instead (there’s already OPI shatters out for all these shades). Application technique is the same for crackles and shatter shades, work fast and one coat. Overdoing the coat will ruin it. I used these over one coat of 6 different holographic frankens of mine.
Let’s start with Gold Texture.
I used Gold Texture over my Fear franken. I thought a dark base color would make the gold pop out well. Formula was thick and applied on smoothly. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
Next up is Silver Texture.
I used Silver Texture over my Loyalty franken. The silver works well with the blue holographic shade as the base. Formula was nice and smooth. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
Next is Red Texture.
I used Red Texture over my Deception franken. I thought for sure this combo would fail and that I should’ve used a lighter shade for the base color, but it surprisingly turned out okay. Formula was a bit on the thin side and slightly gooey, but applied okay. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
Next, we have White Texture.
I used White Texture over my Darkness franken. I paired White Texture with my darkest holographic franken for that contrast. Formula was good and dries really fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
My favorite, Turquoise Texture, is next.
I used Turquoise Texture over my Courage franken. I originally tried this over Envy and you just couldn’t see the Turquoise Texture at all against the dark green holographic shade. Formula, for me, was the best among all 6 textures. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
And lastly, Black Texture.
I used Black Texture over my Truth franken. I was concerned that the black would blend in with this darker blue holographic shade, but there is enough contrast for it to stand out against it. Formula was good and applied on smoothly. Shown is one coat with no top coat.
Overall? Nothing new really. OPI has released shatters already and these are of the same formula as those, just that more shades are offered.
These should be available already in Target stores nationwide.
