Halloween Crackle

It's hump day! Don't forget tomorrow at Midnight Mountain Time is the LAST Day to enter my Halloween contest for the smokin' hot MAC Bad Fairy and Claire's Glow in the Dark polish! Speaking of giveaways, I was the lucky lass that won Konad-licious' BYS Crackle Giveaway - Wahoo! The polishes came super fast I just didn't get a chance to use them for a few weeks. Thanks Konad-Licious for doing the giveaway, and showing some patience when her emails kept going to my junk folder. I received the BYS crackle polishes in Black and Red, I knew I wanted to use the black for a Halloween mani. I used a coat of Seche Rebuild and a BC then added three coats of Zoya Lianne. 


This is a bright orange shimmer, perfect for Halloween! I then waited (not long enough unfortunately) and used one coat of BYS crackle in black on top. Since I didn't wait long enough the crackle effect pulled some of Lianne off ~ boo =(. Overall I was happy with it, but even with a top coat of China Glaze Fast Forward the crackles started to fall off in little pieces a day or so later. I really like the effect and can't wait to use the red. Do you own crackle polishes?

  1. Very cool mani, and a great Halloween look! I do not have any crackle/shatter polishes yet but I plan to snatch up the new OPI when it comes out!

  3. I'm still not sold on the crackle polish. I just purchased a few of Orly cosmic polishes: space cadet, lunar eclipse and galaxy girl. I'm still stuck on glitters and flakies for now. I plan on wearing a black with hidden treasure on top for the weekend.
