Glow:  I'm happy to see Nicole by OPI get a few shatter polishes to their collection. I was actually kinda surprised by the Gold & Silver Textures because they are shimmery, I didn't expect them to come out as cute as the others but they definitely did!

Glare: The only thing I found sort of weird is that a few of the brushes were wide and a couple were thin. Not sure the logic behind that. First I thought maybe the shimmery colors had the wider brushes but that wasn't the case. While I love OPI's wide brushes in general, I actually prefer the thinner brush when applying their texture's & shatters because they allow for smaller & plentiful effects.

Would I Recommend It? Yes! Of course there are some colors that I prefer over others but the quality & consistency of each is still great!

Overall Glam: You're probably thinking the same thing I am. " What's the difference between texture coats and the shatters that were previously released by OPI? " Well I can answer that for you, there is none. The effects are still the same & so is the formula. Just more colors! Bottom line whether you call it Shatter, Texture or Crackle, this is one trend that won't be fading out anytime soon.

* Nicole by OPI Texture Coats currently retail for about $7.99 each. To purchase or to find your local retailer, please visit www.opi.com .
