Make Up Store – Nail Polish – Crackle black

Recently there has been a huge buzz bout these Crackle nail polishes, and I don’t blame them. In the last few years, nails have taken center stage, now women love to experiment and create various styles to wear everyday. New technologies are being created to this day one of which is the Crackle. Even-though the crackle has been existing for a long time, recently they are developing the same texture with new colours and even styles.

A while ago I bought the Crackle black from the Make-up store and I am simple in love with it. It comes in a black sleep packaging as all of their nail polishes, however it can be easily mistaken to be a normal black nail polish (which is exactly what happened to me). I do highly suggest they create a different designed packaging for it.  What I love about this crackle is that you can create various styles of crackles depends how you apply the polish.  It is really simple to use this products, you first apply any normal nail polish colour you want, to wish I used the NYX forever 1989 and then when the polish is completely dry, I applied the crackle. After a few minutes it will start to crack and it will dry in a matte finish.  If you don’t like having the matte finish, I do suggest a final top coat at last.  This is one easy artistic way of creating some cool effects on your nails.

Pros:

  • Very easy to apply
  • Dries pretty fast
  • It creates some pretty cool effects, depends how you apply
  • It lasts for a good week, it also depends on the quality of nail polish you apply underneath.

Cons:

  • Even-though I simple love this crackle I do highly suggest that they create a different design for the Crackle packaging as it can be easily distinguished for a normal black polish.
  • This is not actually a con but I recommend applying a thin layer of the Crackle Overcoat for best results, don’t lay this stuff on thick; it just won’t work if you do. Also, don’t forget to apply a clear top coat. Those two steps combined really make all the difference.

Will I ever buy this product again? Probably I love creating new style and textures on my nails, and this is one easy way to do that :).

Do I recommend it? Definitely, just make sure not to apply a tick coat and a top coat is always suggested, and your nails have just been beautifully crackled.
