Shattered Mermaid's Tears

This combo just screamed out to me!
OPI Turquoise Shatter, from the Blue Shatters collection, and Mermaid's Tears, from The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection.
I am loving both collections so much!
I used 2 coats of Mermaid's Tears, 1 coat of seche Vite, then one coat of Turquoise Shatter and 1 more coat of SV.
I had to leave at least one nail showing mostly Mermaid's Tears.
Mermaid's Tears is a perfect dusty sea foam green creme with the most perfect formula.
Turquoise Shatter is my favorite shade of turquoise with heavy green shimmer and applies fabulously!
My camera refused to take a color accurate picture of Turquoise shatter, it is a true turquoise and not nearly as blue as it shows on camera.

I'm going to have fun with these shatters!

  1. I may be in the minority, but I kinda love the look of the tip done in Shatter over the full nail done in the Shatter. The Shatter does appear turquoisey in the light of the flash, is that close to the color?

  2. I LOVE the one with just the tip done with the Shatter! Awesome idea! I wish my nails were long enough to try that. :)

  7. Bethany the Martian- You are not in the minority at all. I was going to do all just tips with shatter but hubby asked me to do all shatter. lol Yes the color of Turquoise shatter in the light flash is accurate to the actual color.


    styrch- You can do a french on shorter nails too! :o)


    Nymphette- Come over and I'll do yours!


    Hadia- thank you!


    Freshie- I think I prefer it that way! :o)

  9. Sorry, deleted my previous comment due to typos.

    I picked up Mermaid's Tears too, partially because I liked the name and it's a good color. Glad to hear the formula is great on it so now I know it was a good buy. I'll probably grab the Blue Shatter collection when I have the chance. Even though I have yet to wear a Shatter mani, for some reason I feel the need to own all the colors, hehe.
