Essie Resort Collection 'Lion Around' plus OPI Silver Shatter Swatches, Pictures, and Review!

Manicure of the day!  I picked up a set of Essie's new "Resort Collection" and decided to try 'Lion Around' first.  This is an OK color, but I found the application to be an absolute nightmare.  It was streaky and tended to not flow nicely, particularly around the cuticle area.  Major clean up was needed after, which is a P.I.T.A.

I decided to try and save this manicure by using OPI's Silver Shatter on top.  It definitely improved it, but this is not my  favorite combo:

Have you tried 'Lion Around'?  Is it just me that had a crappy time with it? I am looking forward to silver shattering some other colors, especially ones with more of a contrast to the silver.

Hope you are enjoying your day!
