Crackle nail varnish is this season’s hottest nail trend, so of course I couldn’t be left behind. It looks really funky, and you can use it with any of your nail polishes.
It’s a little trickier than I thought, so here are a few guidelines:
1. On clean nails, apply base coat and a colour of your choice
2. Allow several minutes for the colour to dry completely
3. With two quick strokes, coat the entire nail area with crackle polish. I do mean quick strokes, and no faffing whatsoever should be attempted – the crackle acts very quickly, and it goes lumpy if you overlap. Don’t worry if it seems uneven when you apply, the crackling makes most flaws invisible.
Within a few minutes you will have trendy crackle-polished nails. I do not like the look of a shiny top coat over this polish, so I prefer to go without.
