Famous singer and songwriter Katy Perry has almost single handedly brought nail art to a new creative level!
Known for posting Twitter pics of her unique nail creations as well as flashing her unique nail art on the red carpet, it is no wonder that OPI, one of the hottest nail polish manufacturers, has given her her own unique line of Nail Polish and Nail Varnish Products.
The picture to the right shows just a few of Katy Perry's unique and fashionable nail designs.
Katy Perry Black Shatter Nail Polish
One of the more popular trends in the O.P.I. Katy Perry series is the "Black Shatter" collection.
This technique gives a crackled/marbled/shattered effect when you apply the special shattering nail polish.
While the Black Shatter Nail Polish can pretty much be used over any nail color, the OPI Katy Perry Nail Polish Collection includes the perfect unique base colors that will really help the crackles stand out. Some of the colors include Green, Red, Turquoise, Pink, Yellow, White and other unique colors that will really help your one-of-a-kind designs attract notice and attention.
OPI Katy Perry Black Shatter Set

The colors included in this set are:
- OPI Nail Lacquer "TEENAGE DREAM"

- OPI Nail Lacquer "THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY"

How to Apply Katy Perry Black Shatter Nail Polish
Application of the Black Shatter Nail Polish is easy.
Step 1: Make sure Nails are clean and apply your base coat.
Step 2: Apply your nail color as you usually do. You can usually get away with using a single coat as long as it is even. (It also depends however on the color that you use).
Step 3. Allow your nails to dry completely. This is very important to ensure the crack polish doesn't penetrate to the nail color and dissolve it.
Step 4: Apply a single thin coat of the crack polish. (Make sure you do not go over the same section more than once.)
Step 5: This step is optional depending on your preference. OPI "Black Shatter" has a matte black finish so you might want to leave it matte or you can apply a topcoat if you want a high gloss finish.
