Crackle is Backle

26 Mar

Why do some loath crackle polishes so much?  I think they’re fun and haven’t really done enough of them.  China Glaze Fault Line was the first crackle I bought.  I freaking love this combination!!   

I started with a base color of Sinful Colors Aquamarine, a nice bright blue.  Then I layered Icing Bedazzled over it to give it some sparkle and crackle away.  It’s gorgeous!  Seriously, I can’t stop admiring this mani.  On my ring finger I brushed the polish from side to side, rather than the traditional cuticle to tip stroke.  The resulting look was a bit different, which I liked, but disliked that it made it hard to get the polish close the the sides of my nail.  I liked the effect none the less.

I also really like that the formula for this crackle is a bit on the thick side.  I like a thick coat so I end up with a big, fat crack as opposed to a fine crackle effect.  The thick formula made it easy to achieve the look I wanted.

I don’t think I could come up with a better color combination than this.  I sure will try though.

      Ha ha… crackle backle. I’m not sure where that came from. Sometimes it’s hard to think of a title for a post. I love crackles too. It’s an effect you can’t get any other way.

    I still love it. My favourite combination might be pink with lime green crackle. Or maybe turquoise with white crackle. I really like blue with purple crackle as well – but I don’t have any purple crackle 🙂 anyhow – fun post title!! 🙂
