The crackle phase maybe by over but that sure doesn't mean I am over it! I think it is such an easy way to create instant nail art and with just a little bit of creativity you can make some pretty innovative nail art!
That said I decided to have a play with my Barry M Croc Effects in the shade Burgundy. I so wish they had brought this out in a brown-toned green! Anyway I'm not sure if it is the horrid humidity we are having here in the UK at the moment or what but my Croc effects decided not to completely 'croc' for me. However the effect I got is really cool and looks a bit grungy and rock chic!
I did one thin coat of Barry M Croc Effects over touch-dry Barry M Golf Foil. You can see that my horizontal cracks have occurred but what about my vertical ones? Like I said I blame it on the heat! I think it looks a bit more interesting than your everyday crackle and I really like it!
This is such a simple manicure to do but actually I find I still get lots of comments when I wear crackle. I guess it is because it is only polish-heads like us that see types of polish as not on trend and thats because we all wore it to death when it first came out. I honestly think we need a crackle revival!
What do you think? Do you still wear crackle polishes? Do you have problems with your polishes depending on the heat (both hot and cold?)
