Metallic 4 life is packed with two different sized silver glitters, swimming in a jelly black base. I applied two coats over my nails here and found the result a little lumpy. Perhaps if I had waited longer between coats it wouldn't have turned out so bad. There was still slight patchiness at 2 coats but I was going to layer over it so I didn't bother fixing that. Next time, I'll be layering this over a black base for sure! Formula was slightly thick and drying time a little longer than usual from glitter polishes. I recommend waiting around 3-5 mins after painting all five nails before applying the next coat.
I then decided to layer Super bass shatter over it. Unfortunately, the two polishes don't go well together and the shatter isn't very visible. In person, it simply looks like I layered a sheer purple polish over the glitter base. The shatter cracks like all of OPI's previous shatters. I actually quite like the shade of this one and I'll post another try of this shatter over a more contrasting base soon!
What do you think? Are you as sick of shatters as I am? :P
