The other night my Momma and I went in to get pedicures. I never seem to be able to get my toes as lovely as these girls do so it is such a treat! While there I noticed that there were a few different hues of "crackle" polish in one of the cabinets. Out of curiosity I ask Tommy (the owner of the salon) if a lot of people request this look? His response stills cracks me up! "No, no one like it 'cause it ugly... you take it with you" ( <----- insert an Asian accent for the full effect of hilariousness here)! So I did! I have been wanting to see what it was like and what type of cool and unusual concepts I could create with it. I came up with this cute idea of painting my nails half brown and half pink then coating them with the white crackle polish to give the appearance of melted neapolitan ice cream.

I cannot say that the concept was well reflected by my attempts but the outcome was a fun one none the less! I found that you really have to move fast with the stuff as the shatter process begins almost immediately upon application. I cannot say I am quite sold on the crackle concept yet but maybe after some more experimentation I may find that it will change my mind.
Have you tried the crackle or shatter polishes? What did you think?
