Thanks, everyone! That was a fun one! I love my Black Shatter and #31 is going to get this delivered to her doorstep really soon! It is lucky Lauren, who said:
Black Shatter, by OPI and inspired by Katy Perry, is flying off of shelves and right now is on back order with very few bottles available for walk-in customers when shipments do arrive!
The fashion press started teasing about it before Thanksgiving and it has flown off of store shelves since hitting the Utah market, where I live, in February! Random checks of beauty supply websites show that supplies are either limited, back ordered or out of stock! One seller on E-Bay had it listed at $80.50. Other sellers have it retailing for up to $20! (It normally retails for $8.50)
It appeals, like Katy Perry's music, to ages 10 - 30. But I'm thinking it appeals to a much wider age range than that. I'm actually way over 30, I'm 40- cough, sneeze, clear throat, and I think it's fab! (I know, I'm just hip like that anyway!) It is definitely one of the more unique things to hit the nail industry in a long time.
The idea is to paint your nails with a base coat of your favorite shade and then put Black Shatter on top of that. It separates and gives a random cracked appearance, with the base coat showing through. It is definitely interesting to say the least!
