P2 Summer Rain and Golden Rush Crackling

I mentioned the other day that I got an awesome care package from Jeanette of The Swatchaholic. She had sent me a couple of the P2 crackle top coats, and I decided to use the gold, Golden Rush, over this gorgeous neutral from the P2 Sun Love collection, Summer Rain. Summer Rain is a light brown with gold shimmer throughout! Looking at the macro I snagged, it also seems to have some copper shimmer interspersed - I really didn't notice it on the nail, but it shows up in photos. What an awesome neutral, one of my favorites. The shimmer didn't get lost on my nail, and it looked fantastic with the Crackling top coat.





Ahh, you can totally see the gold and copper shimmer in that macro! Cool. I think because these were photographed in overcast conditions (we haven't had a lot of sun lately!) it doesn't show the true beauty of this combo - the gold and neutral together was really eye-catching.

  1. Now that is an awesome P2 color. Do you feel the crackle's are better than the gold/silver stuff that's been released in the states?

  8. @Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes I think this is different, and I like it! The stuff in the states is more sparkly and glitter-like if that makes sense.
