OPI Pink Shatter

I can't believe October is almost over.  Next week it's going to be November.  Normally I wouldn't object to the whole course-of-time-month-change thing, but November means the semester is almost over.  And I have way too much stuff to get done for the semester to be almost over.  Sigh.  But my last post in October will be OPI Pink Shatter, since it's breast cancer awareness month.  I haven't mentioned it at all this October, which wasn't intentional.  But anyway, here's the shatter:

Sorry the fleshy part of my ring finger looks kind of shiny.  I have the world's worst paper cut there and I had to put some Neosporin on it.  Ow.  So anyway, this is OPI Pink Shatter.  There isn't much to say about it, actually.  Kind of self-explanatory.  The polish is shimmery, as you can probably see in the bottle, but also pretty sheer.  Don't even think about putting this one over a dark polish; it won't show up.  I actually tried it over Congeniality Is My Middle Name when I first got it, and it was like I hadn't added anything at all.  But if you put it over a light color you get much more interesting results.  You you see it here over American Apparel Coney Island, which I don't have a picture of on its own (but it's a light pink, and an Essie Fiji dupe).  I did really thin coats because I like the dispersed crackle look, but if you use a thicker one you'll get thicker cracks.  Just one coat necessary.

When I first put this one on I didn't like it at all.  Just because it's hot pink, and hot pink isn't me (at all).  But the next day I couldn't stop staring at my nails.  The patterns the polish had created were just really interesting to me, and from far away I thought they looked like pink camouflage or something.  So all in all, I think Pink Shatter is a win for me.  It's only one of two shatters I now own, so I guess the trend really didn't suck me in, huh?

Also, as requested, here's my hair pre-cut.  I'm going this afternoon to have something done to it, though I'm not sure what yet.  I probably won't do much of anything, because I normally don't.  My boyfriend has been in the habit of pointing out my split ends and lamenting my dearth of conditioner for the past couple months, so I finally gave in and made an appointment.  It's getting so long that sometimes I have my elbow on it when I'm lying down and then when I try to get up it turns out badly.

Yes, I'm at the library.  What else is new?

Okay, that's all.  I'll talk to you guys in November!  Also, don't forget to enter my OPI Miss Universe GIVEAWAY if you haven't already.  The whole collection could be yours; click here to find out details.

  8. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was
    hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard
    work due to no data backup. Do you have any
    solutions to protect against hackers?
