Not that I am complaining. I am sure that the heat will come crashing in on us, soon enough.
So, I decided it was time to try crackle, again. Yeah, yeah. I know... I am a glutton for punishment. I had to try it, again. But, unlike my earlier experiences, I think it worked pretty well, this time. I didn't over think it, this time. I just slopped it on. I didn't worry about thin or thick coats, getting it so neat or stress over whether or not it would work. I just went for it.
And as it went on, it started really cracking and stringing and doing it's thing. And I think that I like what I see, this time. I applied this right over yesterday's Color Club Yum Gum and let it crack on. Then I topped it all with a nice coat of Poshe`.
Maybe the curse has been lifted?
Maybe. But I am not getting ahead of myself. I still have other crackles to master.
Okay. Howz about some pictures? I have one of my left hand, as usual and one of my right hand, too. They are clickable if you would like to see them big, as always.
Right hand. Sorry about the fonky angle. I blow green ones at photographing my right hand. But I wanted to show just how different all of my nails look and how this stuff cracked different, depending on how thick or thin the coats, if they were applied quickly or stroked over.
Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Ink Splatter is a thin formula. It applies easily, is slightly streaky, which doesn't matter, since it cracks apart, anyway. The brush sucks. It is a skinny, round pain in the ass. (Why does that sound wrong? :P) I would have liked the typical Sally Hansen wide brush much better. Oh well. This polish starts cracking almost immediately and it dries quickly. Cleanup is easy. Happily. Since I goobered up a few spots as I painted this stuff on.
I like this black crackle polish a lot better than that horrid Klier stuff I received from Born Pretty Store. I never was able to get that stuff to work, no matter how many times I tried. I know that other gals have had success with it. I never did. And I think it is time to lob it. I'll stick with the Sally Hansen. Maybe I'll even get a bottle of OPI Black Shatter, now. :D
Want to hear something funny? It is the next day and I have applied crackle and more topcoat and I can still smell bubblegum on my nails. That is some highly scented polish. lol
All righty, then. Time for me to run along. Thank you all so much for popping in. Have a great day, stay cool and may your polish never bubble.
