How Do You Like Your Crackle?

Multi-Coloured Crackle Nails

Looking for a way to spice up your Crackle?  How about instead of purchasing an endless range of colours…you try changing the way you use them?

***Please note: I continue to purchase an endless range of colours anyways***

Thanks to an ad in an Avon catalogue, I got the idea of creating a multi coloured nail look underneath the crackle nail polish.

Here is what I decided to use:

Sexy in the City by China Glaze – beautiful metallic jewel toned blue

Hook Up by Orly – lovely fresh spring time yellow

Sexy Silhouette by China Glaze – gorgeous jewel toned pink that gets darker and darker with your number of coats, it is a very rich shade

Black Mesh by China Glaze – crackle nail polish

After a few more nail posts, you should be able to tell that I am a big China Glaze follower.  I love their nail polish!  They have a huge range of colour, including mattes, glitters and metallics.  They also go on rich, creamy and smooth.  And just like eyeshadow  – that makes me happy!  What I love most about Crackle Nail Polish, is you can add it to your nails after 2-3 days when they start to look tired and it makes them look brand new, like you just redid your nails.  Which you sort of did…but with just one easy top coat!  This is certainly my most common use of the Crackle line of polishes.

Saturday night I painted my nails with Coral Star Nail Polish by China Glaze and today they started looking a little weak.  They definitely needed some touching up.  So rather than just piling on more of the same shade, I had a little fun and added some Crackle Nail Polish to refresh my nails and change the appearance – without all the work of starting from scratch. I love also using the Stripe Rite products to finish the look with a nice clean line across the bottom edge of the Crackle polish.
