I’ve finally decided…I’m not a fan of crackles/shatters. I hate that they make my manicure look gross and unpolished. While I’m a fan of seeing a color underneath, it’s that crackle/shatter effect I find revolting. That said, I’m going to be having a cracklin’/shatterin’ giveaway soon because I don’t want them in my collection. It’ll be La Rosa and all 12 of their crackles, so stay tuned!
That said…I present 2 crackles:
Ok, I have to say…this is not my favorite thing. I put these metallics over China Glaze’s For Audrey. I bastardized a perfectly beautiful color. Please do not hold it against me.
A fellow nail polish buddy gave me the silver shatter of the brand that shall not be mentioned and I did try it. It’s deeper and thicker – google it. You know the brand I’m talking about. This silver is a bit anemic when pitted against TBTSNBM in terms of color (the other is deeper) and coverage.
The shatters are thin, but not runny. A little clumpy yet still easy to work with, but I think that’s just the formula. They dry quickly – surprisingly fast. Overall it dried a lot faster than TBTSNBM.
Despite my dislike of the crackles, I kind of like how they looked over For Audrey…I know, I know! I still think I bastardized a perfectly beautiful color, but it doesn’t look too shabby does it?
Well, there’s your Monday entertainment. Sorry it wasn’t all that exciting.
