It's time to play...the peonies that is! OPI Play the Peonies is from the Nice Stems! Collection. This lacquer is a baby soft pink with a pearl sheen. Application for this lacquer is awfully streaky but it covers in two coats. For this mani I used two coats but for a smoother finish use three coats and a good top coat.
I decided OPI Red Shatter would compliment this baby pink, as well as hide the brush strokes. Plus I figured if I was going to step out of my comfort zone I might as well jump! Along with pink, I am not a red person but I had to own Red Shatter anyways.
I found the Red Shatter to be jelly like and very easy to work with. I know a lot of people have been having trouble with the shatters but I haven't. If fact I have found all of them to apply smooth and shatter well. My least favorite in terms of formula would be OPI White Shatter, it tends to dry faster in the bottle than any of the other colors. In case you find your shatters drying out you can add two or three drops of OPI Lacquer Thinner, then roll the bottle in your palms and it will be good as new.
What other colors would you pair with Red Shatter?
