Both pictures are layered over 2 coats of Essie's exposure.
|with top coat|
Because of the glitter, I have to say it dries to shiny.
|with matte coat|
|Blasted must be applied to a completely dried nail. If not it will not work as well. Base color Essie's Geranium without a topcoat|
I cannot compare it with OPI's shatter since I don't own a bottle but I do think the formula and the effect is very good. Because I have an easier access in to Sephora by OPI, I would buy this product again, especially if there are more colors.
