This is extremely easy to create and I feel like the final outcome almost looks a little like brains! Which is awesome because it's around Halloween!
All you need to do it paint your nails any base colour, I used Wet n Wild Black Creme and then take your crackles and one nail at a time add small strokes of each colour until your nail is shatterified! I suggest one nail at a time because I find that crackle polishes especially get a little gloopy if you leave them open for a bit. The crackles that I used here are the whole China Glaze Crackle Metals Collection. Which I got on eBay back when I first started collecting. The collection includes,
Platinum Pieces (silver)
Oxizied Aqua (blue)
Latticed Lilac (purple)
Cracked Medallion (copper)
Haute Metal (pink)
Tarnished Gold (gold)
I loved the look of this, but had an itching feeling that I would love it even more matte. So I grabbed butter LONDON Matte Finish and added a coat over each nail.
Yup, matte this is even more cool! I love that when you make something matte that has either a foil or shimmer finish it takes on a whole new dimension and is just astoundingly cool!
Braaaaiiiinnnnnssss. I wasn't intending for this to be Halloween themed at all, but looking at my nails I can't get past the feeling that I'm looking at some weird multi-coloured brains here! What do you think? Do you see the brainy look?
What are your thoughts on crackle/shatter polishes? Over them? Still love them? Matte or shiny here? Let know!
