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.

i have this polish too ! but it’s horible to remove !! but the effect was fun :)
Never too late, you know. It has a realy funny effect, but i don’t know if I’d feel comfortable with cracks. I like it smooooooth. :w00t:
Wow. Never heard of that crack-thing. :stars:
Thanks for sharing.
Realy? It was huge hit in Slovenia when I was in high school or maybe grammar school? I remember I really disliked it then. :silly:
I ordered Krackpolish on TransDesign. :wink:
wow- I’d love to have one of those- where’d you get it?
I love the effect! Great post, Gejba!
Thank you for showing this. I have been wanting to try this but I was a little wary. It looks amazing!
As interesting and fun as I think this polish is for some reason cracked polish kind of freaks me out. Must be one of my many OCD issues!
Maybe it reminds you of Jurassic Park like one of our Slovenian readers. :silly:
I too just had to try it out. :silly:
I think the effect is really interesting!! I like it the most with the biggest contrast in colors but you’re right – if it’s a pain then konad is a good alternative. I’ll probably get one though :whistle: .
thumbs up! :nails:
Thumbs up! =)
thanks for sharing this…
weeeeeeeeeeeee……….. i have a polish like this.. and i love the color combi of gold and white… hehehhee… u’re right theyre too difficult to remove.. i tried to wrap them in a cotton with acetone and foil..they’re triple harder to remove than glitters… :stars:
Najbolj se mi dopadeta tista dva z leve, ker sta diskretno razpokana. :wub:
čez zlato zgleda d-best :D kot list ki se vidijo vse žilice :stars: res prekrasno! <3
hočeeeeeem hočem hoččččem :w00t: :stars: :w00t: gejba, ful sem si želela tole videt, ampak nisem pričakovala niti približno tako norega učinka!
debeeeest! kazalec je najboljši! me spominja na Jurassic park :silly:
Jurassic park … :haha:
Plazilska manikura. :silly:
Meni je pa čez bel lak lepo :nails:
čez 2030 super zgleda :wub: jaz imam belega (tudi iz TD) pa sem ga samo sprobala :blush: sem ga pa enkrat nalakirala na 1 dan staro manikuro in se je sproti ko se je sušil in pokal tudi lupil :angry: tako, da preveč suh lak ne sme biti :biggrin:
čopič pri mojem je pa zgodba zase :roll:
Kako lepo, sploh čez zlato… :w00t:
Krasen je! Ampak zveni grozno problematicno?
Najlepse pa pride cez zlato, prav unikatno :).
A nas vse daje nostalgija po razpokanih lakih? :silly:
Noro :w00t: Hočem Krackpolish…
Kakšna lepa manikura! Hočem zelenkotaaaa :stars:
Zelen mi je bil v TD ponudbi še najbolj všeč. Ostali so delovali nekam dolgočasno.
Hudooooooooo! :w00t: Najlepše mi izgleda čez zlato. Hvala za vse nasvete! :rose:
Sem jaz testirala, da vam ni treba. :haha:
