Nicole by OPI Red Texture

I decided to take yesterday's manicure up a notch by adding a coat of shatter/texture/crackle.  Nicole by OPI's Red Texture is similar to OPI's Red Shatter except without the jelly finish.  This is one coat of Red Texture with a top coat of OPI Top Coat.

I attempted a diagonal pattern on my index finger, but it didn't work too well.  I'm still getting the hang of it.  You can also see that my cuticles need some help, especially my middle finger which tends to go flat instead of curved (like my ring finger).  Oh nail issues!

In the shade, you can't see much of a difference - I kind of like the nude look of the base color (it's really grey).

Finally indoors with the flash - I really like the vibrancy of this color but if you already have OPI Red Shatter, not sure you need both.  I do like that this didn't gunk up in the bottle like some crackles/shatters do.

Nicole by OPI is available beginning at ULTA, Meijer, Harmon, HEB, Sears, Wal-Mart and more for around $8 a bottle.  For more information, visit their websitefollow Nicole by OPI on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.
