A week ago I asked to rummage through my dear friend Elisha's nail polish before we went out on the town. While rummaging through her polish box, I came across a hot pink color that caught my eye. When I picked up the bottle, I was surprised to see the words "crackle overcoat." I knew I had to try it out!
(I believe the color was from L'Oreal). The color was so rich, I only needed one coat. Once that dried, I decided to try out the Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat. I painted the polish on like I would any other polish, and was a little disappointed when it looked as if I had simply painted over my mint polish completely.
But, to my surprise, The color began to literally crack, and as the polish continued to dry, the mint base started to show more and more from under the hot pink top coat. Within a few minutes my nail was dry and decorated efficiently.
I absolutely recommend this product. The crackle overcoat dries so quickly and works too well to not use it! I love the fact that it can change a set of plainly manicured nails to something funky and unique. I got several comments and compliments on it, from mentions that the colors were "very '80s" to girls asking me where they could purchase a bottle.
I hope to purchase more crackle coats in different colors, so that I can experiment different colors together! You can never go wrong with bright, funky nails in the summer time!
What is your favorite manicure trend? Do you do your own nails or get them done?
