Twinsie Tuesday: Crackle Polish

Yes, what I absolutely dread. This weeks Twinsie Tuesday was a real challenge: crackle polish.

I don't know what it is. But I absolutely dislike crackle polishes. They defeat the purpose of a polish. You know, the glossy, finished look. Man. It drives me nuts.


See that little pinky. Aha. That was the little accent, if you noticed.

Luckily, I won this polish set in a contest from Amandalandish. I don't know if I would be willing to go out and buy my very own crackle polish. As weird as it seems, I actually sort of like it. It's a bit different - because it's the vinyl remix!

The white and black polish came in a set Vinyl Remix. When the black crackles, it adds a color to it ^^ as you can see above. Both applied very smoothly. The white base was opaque in 2 coats and I just painted the black in the center for a different look instead of the traditional entire nail, and I'm sort of diggin' it.

All in all, I dislike crackle polishes. But this one is special to me. I won it!

What do you think of crackles?
