I think the pictures speak for themselves, this manicure is my favorite crackled one so far. It’s beautiful. And I think I got the hang of the application, though it’s not easy to get it on perfectly, I think this time I did better than the past couple attempts. The China Glaze polishes are awesome, this is my first time using the Strong Adhesion Base Coat and it went on perfectly. The Pink Voltage looks great by itself, but with the
Black Mesh it’s really striking.
It’s amazing how fast this crackle polish dries, you have to be really careful to get it right the first time because it’s not really possible to go over an area that you already did. It just dries that fast. I am very impressed with the China Glaze polishes, I got a nice selection so far because of that April sale Sally’s Beauty Supply is having on polish. I want to get the pink crackle called Broken Hearted but they’ve yet to get it back in stock.
In Crackle news though, originally this was intended to be a temporary polish line, but the guy at Sally’s told me yesterday that they’ve decided to keep it on and are making more because they totally ran out completely. I am lucky I got in there on Saturday to get mine because they are already sold out of the Black Mesh again. If they get that pink in I am going to grab a bottle for sure. I like the Crushed Candy one, that’s like a light greenish blue, but I don’t think I want to get it. And I am not sure I want the Cracked Concrete one anymore, I think Black Mesh and Broken Hearted will be something I will use a lot of and so those are the two I want in my collection.
I hope you like the pictures, I really think they came out really good compared to the other two crackle manicures I’ve done, because of the bright pink underneath the Black Mesh. I think the next one will be the Silvivor Fast Dry polish by Wet ‘N Wild, underneath Black Mesh so look out for that to come in a few days. I want to leave this one on for a while as long as it doesn’t chip. Crossing my fingers that this new base coat makes a difference in that regard, because I really love the way this manicure turned out. Thanks for reading! And happy polishing!
