I had beautiful Collistar Borgogna Anna nail polish on my nails and was just itching to stamp something over it. I love gold over deep purple, but didn’t have single gold nail polish in the apartment that I could stamp with. In fact, I only had one gold nail polish period – Flormaf Graffiti G10. Ermm – stamping with crackle nail polish? Won’t that dry before I even transfer image onto my nails? Oh well, not that I had much to lose. My plan was to sponge it over the base polish if stamping fell though.
I had perfect stamping plate in mind – MoYou London Pro Collection XL-12 with lovely leaf image. So I prepared to fail and started stamping. And you know what? IT WORKED! I was completely floored. How, why, what?!? I love how this stamping adventure turned out. Whether MoYou plates worked their magic with deep engraving or I just had lucky hand at picking crackle for experiment, but I’m still shocked that it worked.
I wasn’t even certain that this is actual crackle polish or that it maybe lost it’s magic over the years (I bought it 3 years ago). So I simply had to test if Flormar G10 cracks … and it does. I like it better as stamping polish though.
Did you try stamping with your crackle nail polishes? How did manicure turned out?

Wow, great stamping! I will try with my white crackle: I bought it when this finish was the “new hype” and hated it, maybe MoYou plates will make it useful, at last!! :yes:
Had I not given away all my crackle polishes I’d definitely try using them this way. Thanks for sharing this idea. The stamping turned out beautifully.
you’re right, it looks better as stamping polish :thumb:
I love this post! I’m trying very hard to learn that it’s ok to fail this year. And sometimes things work out even when failure is almost certain. (I still love my crackle polishes by the way!)
I neglected my crackles a bit, but I’ll have to dust them off and start using them again. Who know what kind of gems are hiding among the batch. :biggrin:
Wish you as little failures as possible, but lots of fun and laughter when you have one. :cute:
