Glammed-Up Grunge

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?)

  1. I like that crackle effect - it looks a bit like a volcano. I only have 2 crackles but after seeing this I might dig them out again...

  2. I've got the black Barry M croc effect polish ~ I can only get it to work when the base polish is still wet. Very wet, lol!

  3. A crackle revival sounds great to me, given I missed it the first time around! I've recently snagged some OPI ones from Poundland so I might have a play with those. :)

  4. I still enjoy crackles every once in awhile, but it really depends on the colour combinations. I like the red and gold!

  5. Too funny! I totally get lots of compliments when I wear crackles, too, so I agree with you that only we see it as 'not on trend'. Love these colors together <3

  7. I've got the burgundy and the orange, they both look really cool & ghoulish over yellow!!! a bit disappointed I could never get them to work over black, but they do only work if the base is wet which I think is a bit limiting as its nice to do something like this after a day of wearing the base on its own :)

  9. My black OPI Shatter was worn to death! I even wore it to my Maternity shoot! That's how HAUTE it was! My son is almost 2 now and I still love me some black shatter on silver polish! <3

  12. I like the crackle effect on others, but I never got too into it myself. Perhaps now I'll give it another go!
