More crack... are you surprised?


I'm a crack addict. I need rehab. As of now, I will put crackle nail polish on just about any manicure within an hour because I feel it needs it.

The good news is that I have many options. I managed to get the Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat Vintage Violet at Walgreens yesterday (SCORE!!) I wasn't planning on buying it. I went there because I needed white and wanted to try WnW French White to see if its as awesome as Black Creme (it totally is) and then I looked up and saw it. I had to be mine. So I bought it. Along with a SH HD that was on sale for $1.69 (originally $6.49) I got a pretty cobalt blue, appropriately named Blu. I almost got a coral and green from the same collection since they were such a great deal but I resisted.

So as you may have guessed, I have a mani for you today featuring my new pretty Vintage Violet. I know, I know, Amanda has already shown this one to you, and recently too, but I'm excited about this and this is the most recent mani I've done and taken pictures of (read: this is all I got for you.) Plus, this is a totally different color combination. Maybe even a color combo that most people wouldn't have thought to do.

Like she said, VV is a total win. It crackles perfectly over tacky and dry polish. Its totally gorgeous too. Its a pink toned purple with a slight blue-ish shimmer and flash, very interesting!!

I decided to try it over Zoya Rica because I saw on someone else's blog recently (I have no clue who, I read SO MANY blogs) a purple and orange combo and thought it was interesting and funky, totally my style. I really, really like how this came out!!

Look at that blue-ish flash in the bottle!! Oh and I should mention this is with SV over 2 coats of Zoya Rica. My index has 2 coats of VV because I messed up the first one. I like it but the crackle pattern is different and not as linear as I like. I like the color it makes it though!

Oh and I'm sorry for the sucky pictures. It was rainy all day so I couldn't get any outdoor pics so all I had to work with was indoor flash pics since the lighting situation in my house is terrible since I don't have a good desk lamp like I did at school. I could unpack it but I really don't have a place to put it. These are surprisingly pretty color accurate though. My camera likes orange and pink toned colors like this.

And sorry for the hairs on the bottle (I have a dog and 3 cats, its bound to happen!) I didn't notice them until now. And for my horribly shaped cuticle "gap" and what appears to be tipwear on my ring nail. I don't know what that is, its not present IRL. I think its just macro and flash picking up little imperfections.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week in case I don't post until this weekend and thanks for looking!
