So putting it on is a little difficult but it can be done. You have to put it on thinly, but not too thin otherwise it'll dry up too fast and be transparent. If you put it on too thick, it loses the crackle effect. When it dries it looks like a soft black so a top coat is a MUST. I always use a top coat no matter what when I paint my nails so it's not a task at all for me.
Try to catch it on sale right now! You won't regret it.
|I put Ink Splatter over my already chipping nails so I apologize for the tips of my nails looking like poop.|
UPDATE: I received a bottle of Black Shatter by O.P.I. and now I can compare the two. I actually prefer the Sally Hansen version because you can get thicker blocks of black with good separation. Black Shatter has a cleaner/smoother formula (less clumpy), but it doesn't crackle enough for me. The cracks are very thin so it's hard to see the nail color that is underneath. Even applying thick, I still got thin cracks everywhere. I still like it though.
