Late night manicure

Crackle polish may be old news, but I must confess that I was never a fan of it in the first place. It looks worn and messy and I prefer an immaculate manicure, not a grungy one. So it somewhat pains me to say that while playing with my nail polishes one (very late) night I discovered a more sophisticated way of wearing crackle polish and have actually kept it on all week!
Nail polish: OPI Russian Navy (£7.99 here), Crackle Polish: 17 Nail Xtras Crackle Top Coat (£3.99 here), Top Coat: Seche Vite (£9 here).
By only using crackle polish on the 'feature' nail I think the crackle creates some interesting texture without overpowering the whole manicure. The gold is also a much more attractive alternative to the matte black that most brands have featured!

Are you a fan of the crackle effect? Have you tried any of the new magnetic polishes? Which ones would you recommend? xxx


  1. I was the same, but now I’m feeling that now the novelty has worn off you can wear it in a stylish way.

  2. I was never a fan either. I totally agree with you though. It looks so much nicer on the 'feature' nail, than an all over manicure.

  3. I was never a fan of the crackle nail polish until recently either

  5. Oooh i really like this! I'm the same, I prefer perfect nails but this looks lush xx

  6. I'm not a fan of crackle polishes either but I love the magnetic, I have 3 colours in it.

  7. Not a crackle polish fan but I do like this look. I love the magnetic polishes by Nails Inc. Trafalgar Square is amazing!

  8. This is such a good idea, looks so much less messy! I will have to try this, love the colour combo too :) xx
