Lacquistry - Shredded

I've found some cool things on Etsy, but by far the coolest item I've scored so far is this special effects top coat from Lacquistry called Shredded. Many of you might've seen me tweet a picture of this earlier this month and the response was hugely positive.

Shredded is a clear polish with black "shards". It looks kinda like black flakies! Very cool and a simple idea honestly,  I can't believe I've never seen anything like it! She does other colors too, including a breath-taking holographic shredded silver, a marine blue, and a shiny gold! I of course need them all :)

This is two "coats" of Shredded over Zoya Lotus. I put quotes around 'coats' because with chunky polishes like this I usually dab rather than coat if that makes any sense.

You can get this polish and many more cool creations on Jenna's Etsy store Lacquistry for $7.50 each.

  5. o.O She should make a Harry Potter-themed line with this in a dark grey base and call it Dementor. JUSTSAYING.

  10. Interesting way this one shatters. I am seeing a few (very few) that seem to have a different/better shatter quality to their formulation. Of all brands, I think it was YSL has a crackle in black now. Theirs also shatters in a more upscale look.

    There is one blogger who has her own technique rather then brushing on the shatters up/down the nail - she swirls it so it cracks in swirl. It looks particularly nice (and I am not a shatter fan) with the metallic shatters. My fav in this technique is a darker base with a lighter shatter and keeping it tonal.

    Love blogs and what tips I see from all these creative folks. How many eons have I just painted my nails and toes with one shade? Now despite I am not artistic, I can stamp, I can do tasteful decals, I can do Stripe Rite tipping, working on water marbeling and scotch taping now.
