I decided to use the crackle on my accent nail over MUA Shade 2 and paint OPI Gold Shatter directly onto my other nails, finished with Sally Hansen Diamond Shine top coat.
If you are using this as a crackle be warmed not to apply it too thickly. I first applied it as I would my Barry M crackle polishes but it didn't crackle very well at all.
I removed this and applied a very thin coat of the crackle, this achieved the desired effect.
The Gold Shatter polish dries quite matte, this looked too dull for my liking.
I applied one coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Shine over the top which instantly brightened my nails up and transformed Gold Shatter into a gorgeous all over nail colour.
The only downside to using crackle polishes as a block colour is that it tends to peel off quite easily so may not last as long as your usual nail polish.
Massive thanks to Fee for this tip!
Have you tried OPI Gold Shatter yet? Do you prefer it as a block colour or as its intended?
