Okay, getting started off right with this crackle obsession and one of my favorite polish brands: China Glaze Crackle. I picked up five of the six - I just couldn't get into the purple and I may find myself regretting it later, but we'll see. I found them at Sally's - they were still in the back!
With Broken Hearted, I hadn't decided what else I wanted to pair it with, but I knew a basic black would look great. Liquid Leather it was.
On the other hand I tried swirling it horizontally and diagonally. I'll have to try that on my swatching hand the next time I do a combo! It's a pretty funky effect.
As to application, very easy. You'll definitely want to wait to apply the crackle topcoat after your base color is dry - thinner coats give more of a crackle whereas thicker coats give less, as you can see from my pinkie finger. These dry pretty quickly and the wear is good with your favorite top coat. I should mention my HG (holy grail) top coat is CND Air Dry.
And that's it! What are your favorite color combos to wear with Broken Hearted, other than black?
