Crackle Polish Experiment Part 2!

Here is part two of my experiments with crackle polish. Part one you can find here! 😀

Layered Crackle Polish

OPI Shatter Layered Nail Art

I have to say, I really like this Layered look, I started with two coats of Black Magic from Revlon, then one coat of Silver Shatter from OPI, then a coat of SV.

The topcoat here is really important, or the next layer of crackle polish will turn your nail into a horrible mess! (that happened to me the first time I tried this lol) you could even use a glitter polish for a bit more sparkle or even a gelly polish if you want to change to look of the crackle! 🙂

I am definitely going to be using this layering technique again!

Crackle Polish With Stripes

Originally I was going to add this into the my first lot of experiments, but I didn’t, so here it is now! 😀

The silver base colour is Night Moves from Barielle shades, then I added one coat of Super Bass Shatter from OPI, then a coat of 60 second fast dry top coat from color club. I used tape to mask off the stripes then Black Magic from Revlon, after removing the tape I applied another layer of topcoat.

I think that this may look better with thinner stripes (and a bit more care than I used while cutting the tape) I did find that the black polish peeled up with the tape which I found a little odd, as I took the tape off while the black polish was still wet. I think it has something to do with the topcoat.

French Tip

OPI Silver Shatter French Tip

The base colour is Black Magic, the tip is OPI Silver Shatter.

I don’t like this so much, the crackle polish is a nightmare to get into a reasonably strait line for the french tip, I tried this 3 times before giving up :/

OPI Super Bass Shatter With Stamping

I used the same polishes as before for this, Black Magic Super Bass Shatter. I used two layers of SV to smooth over the crackles before stamping. The polish I used for the stamp is Masquerading from Color Club.  The stamping plate is P21 but I actually have no idea what brand it is :/

Crackle polish as a base for stamping works really well! and this is another technique I will be using again 😀


Black And Teal Bamboo Nails!

Here’s some pretty bamboo nails that I did a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t have a chance to post them at the time 😦 but here they are now! 🙂

I used Plate Moyou XL Suki Collection 06 and for the base colour I used Black from Barry M, The silvery teal colour that I used for the stamping is Masquerading from color club. Then I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite.


Glow In The Dark Halloween Spooky Bat Nail Art

My bottle of Ghoulish Glow from china glaze arrived today! And I couldn’t wait to try it out!

the design for my nails is very similar to the Halloween nails I posted a couple of weeks ago… But with a lot more bats! 😀

For the base gradient I used Secret Agent which is a purple metallic and Masquerading which is a lovely silvery teal, both of these polishes are from color club. I then applied two coats of Ghoulish Glow, In the bottle the polish looks like a pale cream colour, luckily it didn’t affect the base colours too much, it just made them look a little foggy. I used Konad special polish in black for the stamping, then I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.
