For the month of February,
buy one China Glaze Crackle Glaze polish, GET ONE FREE!
(Check out our original swatches here, where we tested different layers and colors).
These colors are *especially* awesome over black. I suggest a matte black base coat under Broken Hearted, Fault Line and Crushed Candy, and a plain white base coat under Black Mesh. The contrast is incredible. Though all of the colors in this collection are amazing, my personal favorites are the following:

Finally – they’ve arrived and they are oh-so-lovely! Here are swatches of the new polishes, as well as pictures of each color in their bottles. We love them!
In the image above, all the same polishes are coated with OPI Silver Shatter. The top three hues on the right (Planks A Lot, Mermaid Tears and Stranger Tides) have the Silver Shatter applied in the normal direction, from top to bottom of the nail. The next two shades (Skull & Glossbones, Stead As She Rose) have the Silver Shatter applied from side to side, for a different coating. The last shade (Sparrow Me the Drama) has it applied in a wavy pattern. We were excited to see the variation!

OPI’s introduces four new Soft Shades for Spring 2011: OPI Femme de Cirque. This mini collection includes the follow colors:
(pictured from left to right) OPI I Juggle … Men, OPI So Many Clowns So Little Time, OPI In the Spot-Light Pink, and OPI Step Right Up!
As with many of the OPI Soft Shades, the Cirque colors are very translucent, providing a subtle wash of color. OPI Step Right Up! is by far the most opaque, achieving a nearly opaque finish within a couple of coats. OPI I Juggle… Men is definitely the most sheer, as its designed to be an iridescent top coat over other pastel polishes, to add depth of color and the just the slightest bit of sparkle. Over other polish, its truly magical!
