Nati spotted Krackpolish in my “Waiting to be tried out” box. It’s one of her huge lemmings so I layered it over 4 different base polishes just for her.
From left to right: Essence Gothic Girl, China Glaze Adore, China Glaze 2030, Golden Rose 242 and lying down Krackpolish Hunter Green.
I applied base polishes in the same orders as above and then layered them with Krackpolish.
First time I tried out Krackpolish I had green color all over me … except on my nails. After experimenting a little bit I came with my list of DO’s and DON’Ts:
- polish cracks best if I apply it over “smooth” polish (no ridges);
- if put over chrome polish it will quickly rub down or crumble off;
- worst base are creme polishes (you know those tacky ones);
- thicker is the layer of Krackpolish, less cracks you get;
- base polish must be dry before applying Krackpolish;
- Krackpolish must be completely dry before using top coat (and top coat is a must if you wish to have pretty manicure longer that until first time you wash you hands)
- even if K. is dry it can still smudge if we used very smooth polish for base (think China Glaze Khrome collection).
I assume original bases work better with Krackpolishes, but I’m not crazy about this polish, so I won’t be testing them. I like Konad cracked images better. :D
Removing this polish was also a battle – I had to use acetone to get rid of the green color.
I ordered Krackpolish on TransDesign.
