Who is completely over the whole crackle/shatter/fracture polish craze? I have a confession to make. I never caught the fever, so to speak. I think it was just the whole overload of it in the blogosphere that made me back up and not even want to try. Well, that's a lie, I did do a post on my Turquoise Shatter from OPI last summer, but I only wore that mani for a day or so and then never touched my crackle/shatter/polishes again.
Today I have what I consider to be the original/traditional crackle mani. Silver and black.
Silver Sweep, 2 coats - no topcoat
Silver Sweep has good application, a little streaky but I don't mind because I usually use this as layering polish. One thing that bothers me about the Insta Dri line is that the brush is huge and the bottle opening is tiny. It doesn't make any sense to me. *shrugs*
With Seche Vite, 1 coat
Left hand shots ... and now for something absolutely comical ...
I swear my pinky doesn't look like this IRL, I was holding
the bottle tightly with, apparently, my pinky. ;)
Hahaha. Welcome to the my pathetic attempts at photographing my right hand. Look at my pinky, all squished and looking really odd. *chuckles* So, so bad. I had to share, we all could use a good laugh now and then, no?
Black Shatter applied nicely, no complaints. Average, I would say, though I really did like this mani. Very quick and simple, yet it earned many compliments from co-workers and customers. I was pleased.
Be sure to stick around; I'll be posting a "non-traditional" crackle mani in the next couple days. ;)
