NOTD: Coat Azure and Silver Shatter


Just a quick post today - I have a few more interesting things coming soon!  This is a mani I did with two new polishes I picked up, Essie Coat Azure and OPI Silver Shatter.  


Coat Azure is a grey-blue with a subtle shimmer.  It's a little less saturated, I think, than it shows here.  I only needed 2 coats for coverage, but I added a 3rd so I could have a wet base for the shatter.
Silver Shatter is a little trickier to work with than its sister, Black Shatter.  It works best over damp nail polish, and has a tendency to break much more along the brush stroke lines.  To get it to shatter the way it did, I took a more dab-y approach to application, intentionally creating an uneven appearance.
