Remember this post? Now it's time to check it out!
Serena Williams is one of the only tennis players I can name, but not only is she an amazing player, she always has had some amazing nails! I thought it was pretty neat that OPI paired with her for the Gram Slam collection which was this - Simply Smash-ing! and a Black Shatter (ooh, coming soon!). It is a glitter without the grit, yellow-green leaning towards gold. I'm tempted to call it glass fleck because it wore just like Zoya Sparkle's collection or the China Glaze Summer Days. Removal was similar as well, leaving behind microglitter on my hands.
I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 2 coats of Simply Smash-ing! and a top of OPI Top Coat.
In the sun, you can see a few bald spots on my nails where the color didn't stick as well. However, you can also see a bit of green in the polish. I'm happy to say my nails did NOT stain after application - always a fear of mine.
Indirect sun picture - again you can see the smooth application with glitter but no grit of glitter. I do love the OPI Pro-Wide brush - it helps get the polish in one stroke instead of 4 or 5 mini strokes.
Finally - shade. You can really see the olive greenish coming out now. I don't think this color flatters me that well, but when you add the Black Shatter... well let's just say it spices things up!
