NOTD #7: Crackle French Manicure

I've had this idea in my mind for a while and it has finally come to fruition. The crackle french manicure. Well, sort of.

I'm not sure if this would really be considered a french manicure, but it's almost the same idea.

A base coat is a must for this because you need something to put the white crackle on (so that it will crackle properly). Then take a a light, sheer pink color to layer over the crackle. Voila!

I used the Nicole by OPI texture coat and it's quite nice. Crackles nicely. The pink that I used was Essie Sugar Daddy. Probably one of my favourite french manicure colours. I also like Essie Mademoiselle but Sugar Daddy is more pink.

  2. OOh pretty :) That crackle looks very nice, I hate when they're all goopy and thick looking.. must go get this brand now, thanks!

  3. @FashionFreak/Mihaela Really? You've never tried it? I definitely think you should! There's so many fun things you can do with it :)

  4. @Amanda Rose Yes, I was really happy with how this polish works! It crackles nicely, especially when you do different angles instead of the length of the nail :).

  5. found your blog through searching pandora bracelets on youtube! <3

    i only have one crackle polish and that's the black one by OPI.. the white one looks so much nicer!

  6. I love gold and silver crackle over black. I've been seeing a lot of gold crackle over turquoise which looks really cool so I'll have to give that a try, but I like your mani too!
