I am such a bad blogger for taking so long to put this up. It wasn't because I wasn't free, but I was really feeling way too lazy to write an entire post.
I didn't want to take OPI You're A Doll off after a couple of days so I did what would be the easiest and most convenient solution: I added crackle. That seems to save my mani when I get sick of it but can't or don't want to take it off. And it never turns out the same twice.
This is China Glaze Lightning Bolt, a white crackle, over 2? 3? coats of You're A Doll. The first 3 photos are without top coat and the rest are with.
Crackles are awesome. But companies need to STOP making them! I admit I am probably all crackled out by now. Just a couple of days ago I was all "Hah" at people who said they were sick of crackles. Now I am one of them. China Glaze's Metallic crackle collection doesn't even excite me. I thought at first that I'd get all of them except the silver but I am trying to save money for swaps and suddenly the crackles don't excite me anymore.
Unless some really pretty and unique colors (not metallic) are released, I think these blue OPI crackles will be my last. For now anyway. Stop it guys. Move on to something else. Here are some things I wish polish companies would make more of:
1. Holographic (the Gosh/Nfu.Oh kind)
2. Color changing polish (heat or UV activated)
3. Multichromes (think Clarins 230)
5. A Harry Potter collection. People would go crazy. I'd buy the entire set!
I wouldn't mind numbers 1-3 in crackle if it turned out good. What do you think polish companies should make more of?
