Hello all! I haven't blogged in soooo long! Grad school readings are kicking my butt, but fortunately I got my head out the books long enough to snag some China Glaze Crackles. The "it" thing for nails now is a shatter or crackle effect and I decided to test it out for myself. I picked up two colors to start off with, China Glaze's Black Mesh and Broken Hearted.
Out of all the colors to layer the black crackle over, what do I reach for? China Glaze's Shocking Pink of course! My user name isn't adorepink for nothing!
(Above: My right hand makes a rare appearance! And you can see why it rarely gets shown!)
There was a little trial and error when I first applied this, because I was doing either too thick or too thin coats. Once I got good amount of polish that wasn't gloopy or too thin on my brush, I was really satisfied with the crackle effect. Is it me or does this look really Halloween-ish? I cant wait to try out new crackle combos! Until I can get some more time, I'll have to live vicariously through other bloggers and readers!
Are you loving the new crackle/shatter nail trend?
