In my unexpected haul from last week I picked up OPI's newest addition to their Shatter line of polishes - Pink Shatter, which is the 2011 Pink of Hearts polish for Breast Cancer Awareness.
As I've said a number of times already, I'm rather over the crackle trend now and I'm hoping it dies off really soon, but I still feel the need to test out new additions to the trend to see if there's anything unique.

I found that this polish shattered really well and though the consistency is a little thinner than I'm used to with shatter polishes, it was a good thing because it seemed to make this one easier to use than some of the thicker, creamier ones out there.
I was a little disappointed with the colour because by looking at the bottle, I thought it was going to be a really hot pink but it turned out much lighter than I anticipated. It also has a slightly frosty, almost shimmery look to it which I'm still on the fence about. I liked the all-out shimmer look of both Turquoise and Blue Shatter but this one seems to be missing something in my opinion.
I swatched it over a white creme and a light pink creme for you and although I prefer it over the white, I think it would look better over something with a similar finish (I'm thinking something along the lines of OPI Play the Peonies from the Nice Stems Collection).
Overall, this isn't my favourite of the Shatters from OPI - it's just ok. However, in my opinion it's still worth it because it supports a great cause.
What do you guys think of OPI Pink Shatter? Did you like it more than I did?
