My Address is "Hollywood" & Gold Shatter

A recent shopping trip to my local Trade Secrets had me picking up a few of the Touring America colours (My Address is "Hollywood", Road House Blues, Honk if you love OPI, French Quarter for Your Thoughts) and a new Do you Lilac It? Annnddd!! Gold Shatter!! This wasn't even in a proper display, just mixed in with all of the other shatter colours. I'm not sure of the exact release date of this shatter, but it was first talked about in conjunction with the Muppets Collection. I was really excited about finding this shade of shatter, and I'm equally excited about sharing the pictures with you all!

First up, from the recently released Touring America collection, OPI presents My Address is "Hollywood".
Now, this isn't a shade that I would expect from a Fall/Winter collection, but I'm glad that they did include it. The shimmers in this collection brighten everything up, for us girls who still want to remember the summertime all year round.

OPI's description that came along with this shade was, "We put this pretty rose-pink on the map." I would describe this shade as a dusty pink with hints of golden shimmer throughout. The shimmer isn't as noticeable on the nail as it is in the bottle. After two coats of this polish, I noticed some pulling at the cuticle, so I added a third coat, which evened everything out. 

A pet peeve of mine: When OPI decides randomly to include the serial number on the cap! I hate it!

Now on to the Gold Shatter! Again, as with all of OPI's shatters I have tried, no complaints! Went on easily, dried super quickly, and the shatter effect is gorgeous. I know a few of us might be over the shatter craze, and I understand that, but I keep getting drawn back into it. The gold shatter has the same kind of sparkle and glimmer that is found in Turquoise Shatter and Silver Shatter. I thought that it would look nice over My Address is "Hollywood" because of the gold shimmers in this lacquer. I also think that the Gold Shatter would look awesome over a nice, deep red.

What do you think of the Gold Shatter? Are you over the shatter trend or will you continue to pick up the newly released colours? What do you think about this combination?

Disclosure: This polish was provided to me for my honest review.


  1. I am not a fan of the shatter, but the colour looks nice on its own.

    I bought 6 colours from the collection!

  2. @Me - I totally understand, nail trends change pretty quickly!
    Ooh which ones did you pick up?

  3. my address is "hollywood's" shimmer and the edgy of the gold shatter work perfectly!!! once again, thanks for being my first follower!

    1. I agree, I love this combo :)
      I can't wait to see more of your posts!
