So I know you’re probably all sick of crackle top coat polishes by now, but I was staying with my aunt and uncle and my cousin (who is 17) and her friends spotted my stash of crackle top coats and had to try them out!
I had a few for them to choose from – pink & white from the China Glaze Crackle top coat collection and the OPI Black Shatter from the OPI Katy Perry nail polish collection and OPI Serena Williams nail polish collection. After much deliberation the girls chose these combinations…
1. OPI Big Hair…Big Nails with OPI Black Shatter topcoat
First up is OPI Big Hair… Big Nails nail polish from the OPI Texas range with OPI Black Shatter topcoat, modelled by Roberta. Black Shatter definitely looks fantastic over the top of really brights or really pale polishes.
2. Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber My Lifesaver with OPI Black Shatter topcoat
Next up is Rosalie wearing Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber My Lifesaver nail polish with OPI Black Shatter topcoat. Whenever you use these crackle/ shatter topcoats you def need to use a regular topcoat as well, especially with the Black Shatter, because it dries really matte and looks a bit shite, then looks lovely with a shiny topcoat.
3. Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber Me + Blue with China Glaze Lightening Bolt crackle topcoat
Last of all is my cousin Rose modelling Nicole by OPI Justin Biever Me + Blue nail polish with China Glaze Lightening Bolt crackle topcoat.
The girls all loved these! They are a fun way to change your nail polish and are great for extending your manicure, because they hide a multitude of sins in your base colour. The crackle/ shatter topcoats do seem to dry differently depending on what nail polish you have on underneath. I noticed that the China Glaze Lightening Bolt crackle glaze topcoat looks really different in my original China Glaze Crackle post, compared with how it looks on Rose in the pic above.
