Ta-dah! Another new OPI polish, also from the Nicki Minaj collection – the very pretty Super Bass Shatter.
SBS is a shatter polish in a pink-toned purple with microshimmer throughout. I used one medium-thick coat per nail. As with any shatter polish, the thinner the coat, the finer the shatter will be.
It looks beautiful in the bottle, but on the nail it loses some of its lustre. The polish becomes semi-matte and the microshimmer is dulled practically to the point of non-existence. Could a top-coat bring out the shine again? Perhaps, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
A lot of blog swatches of SBS have been done over fellow Nicki Minaj polish Pink Friday, a baby pink creme. I did mine over the nearest colour I could get, which was another unnamed polish by Leticia Well, pictured below.
All in all, SBS is an unusual polish and a nice take on the shatter craze. Its colour limits what it can be painted over, however. It might look good over opaque white, or taupe maybe… Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be getting a lot of mileage out of this one. Oh well! More pics!
Tomorrow – the anonymous pink!
