Black Shatter Nails
It has been brought to my attention by someone on Twitter that OPI have an extraordinary new product called Black Shatter launching soon. It seems be designed to make your nails look like a distressed old building in SoHo in late 70s/early 80s New York. I can’t imagine how it works and I can’t deny that it is innovative, but – after much consideration – I have decided that it’s not for me.
There were two cons and one pro. In the con column was the fact that the product seems to be in association with notoriously overclad feminist thinker Katy Perry, a woman who wears minx nails of her husband. Nah.
And the second con – a biggie – is that I don’t want my fingernails to look like this. I just don’t.
The pro still nags me from time to time though. And this pro is that the product really reminds me of Ice Magic, one of the greatest treats of my childhood.
As with Black Shatter, I am quite sure that it was made of pure chemical evil. There can be no other reason why it is not still dominating the market. My parents wouldn’t let us have it in the house. Consequently my grandparents ALWAYS had it in the house. I stiill miss it. Am I alone?
