I can't decide if I really like it or if it looks like I have pink on under, then put black on top and the black is just chipping. Hmm Some look great other nails look shit, Is there a good amount or way to apple the crackle polish?

What make are you using?

I have OPI and find that the silver is much better than the black. I also use a strong colour underneath so it looks more deliberate, and just do one thin layer of the shatter on top.

Nails inc say you should apply a thin layer in a hap-hazzard manner (in lots of different directions rather than how you would do a normal polish). I'm not a fan but I know that is how they intend for it to be applied (if you put it on as normal it wont crackle as much and the crackle will all go in the same direction). and you still need a top coat.

I did pink rimmel on under - its the new one that smells like flowers or something.

rimmel crackle too.

I did a think layer on one and its not cracked at all, just streaky lines down. some nails look fab though. But CBA redoing the shit ones - 2 layers of pink then the black on not repeating that again!

good tip about applying in different directions, i can see how that would work will try next time thanks.

Am thinking purple with pilver on top would be nice.
