I’m sure most of you already know, what a crackle polish is. For those of you, who don’t know. A crackle polish is a polish that cracks while drying. It’s a cool effect. I like it very much! It’s a bit unpredictable, because you don’t know what “design” the polish will create on your nails. You can manipulate the design a bit, by knowing that a thick coat will create bigger cracks and a thin coat of crackle polish will create smaller and thinner cracks. Crackle polishes seem to be big in trend right now, because a lot of nail polish companies are creating crackle polishes. I’m not complaining at all, because I love this trend. Remember how matte polishes became a big trend? Well, I think it’s going to be the same with crackle polishes.
Today I have Barry M – Instant Nail Effects – black crackle polish to show you. It’s a great crackle polish. It creates very nice cracks on the nail. It’s a bit thick in consistency (similar to the IsaDora’s crackle polishes), which is OK, because you don’t need to do a perfect coat of crackle polish. It’ll crack anyway and the uneven application won’t be visible anymore. Here it is … the magic with crackle polish.
The Barry M’s crackle polish dries matte and I like it that way. I never put a top coat on while wearing it. There’s also no top coat in the photos shown in this article.
Here is a close up of the crackle effects.
For all of you, who like glitter polishes. Here’s a close up of Red Glitter (2 coats).
And the last photo. Note that it’s not true to life. I played a bit with the photo and edited it a lot. I liked the end result. I think it’s looks pretty cool.
How do you feel about crackle polishes? Do you like the effect or not? Do you think that they are becoming next big thing in the nail polish world?
