Touch of Color: Crackled White

China Glaze: CRACKLE Glaze in White
Cost: $5.99 to $7.00

The mission was to find the OPI Black Shattered nail polish. Missioned FAILED! On the upside I was able to snag the last CRACKLE Glaze left in the store. Of course the first thing I did when I got home was try it out and I hated the effect. 

For those that have not heard of the crackle or shatter nail polish here is a brief description; it is a top coat  that cracks when it dries. You are suppose to put a layer over the nail polish that you want to peek through. 
However, the first time I used it there was not much of any crack effect going on.I had the intention of returning it the next day, but work got in the way of that plan. 

A few days ago I had the urger while watching  'My So Called Life' to redo my nails and since, I still had the CRACKLE Glaze I gave it a second chance. The result was ten time better than the first and there was plenty of cracks all over the place. I also did some research as to why it did not work the first time as well, apparently the crack effect does not happen as vividly if you use matte nail polish, so just put a top clear coat on the under color before applying the CRACKLE Glaze.

Sorry for the low quality picture; my camera is currently on vacation in Texas and will be returning next week.
