Just a quicky today of a recent mani I did. I got a prezzie from the lovely Kate in the form of some China Glaze crackle polish so I thought I'd give it a try. I've only used the Barry M crackle polish before and as this only comes in black I was happy to try a colour. I absolutely love the Barry M polish so I knew this would have to be good to compare...
I quite like the colour, it's very summery! But as it's still quite wintery here I decided to team it up with Kensington nail polish from Nails Inc which is a blackened teal colour. The polish applies well and as per usual you can determine the size of the cracks by how thickly you apply the polish...I want quite big cracks so I apply it quite thickly.
All in all it goes on well, but I still prefer the Barry M polish, they just need to make it in colours.
The one thing I did'nt like about the China Glaze polish is that it leaves a kinda film on top of your base colour which darkens it a little. This obviously didn't matter for this mani, but when I tried it later with a pink it was much more noticeable.
Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me? Whats your favourite crackle polish?
