Nails: Matte Holo Crackle

Shatter, crackle nail polish whatever you like to call it it seems to have come and gone in terms of trends. I wanted to use the black again and so I ended up using it over a black holographic polish and I really liked the look. The matte crackle contrasting over the shiny holographic base.

Swatch: Barry M - Special Effects Gold

No one seems to talk about crackle nail polishes anymore, things have moved on to the next thing.
This particular crackle is Barry M's Instant Nail Effects in Gold. I personally don't usually opt for gold but over the black I think this could be something wearable over the festive season, especially over New Years time.

Opacity: Really thick which makes for a great crackle which works
over any colour base, really pops with a top coat
Brush Type: Standard
How Much: 10ml
Cost: £3.99 

Instructions are now handily printed on the side of the bottle rather than on a cardboard note tied around the top.
