Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac, Overcoat Vintage Violet

Okay, this was a bit of a fail. I really haven't had any problems with my crackles - and yeah, I'm probably one of the few people still excited to play with them. This time though, I totally failed - my Lacey Lilac application was a bit of a fail, and I thought oh, well this will look good with the Purple Potion crackle version, Vintage Violet. You guys know that Sally Hansen's purple Crackle Overcoat, Vintage Violet, is the same exact color as Xtreme Wear Purple Potion right? It's AWESOME. Seriously, I do love it. I've used it a couple of times, but I hadn't snapped a picture. Of course, the time I DO decide to snap a picture, it's a fail. Hah, go figure! Vintage Violet is a deeper purple shade with a blue flash. Anyway, I decided to show this to you anyway - if I had done it right, this would be a pretty combo.

So, Lacey Lilac is a really pretty pale purple - just a hint dusty. I only needed two coats for opacity, it's well pigmented. As you can see, I somehow nicked my index finger. I had wanted to try Vintage Violet over it anyway, I thought it would be a good match - I don't think that my base mani was dry enough, for one. Secondly, the brush on the Overcoat is wicked thin - I had to do about five swipes, so I probably got it on too thick! I like my index finger best, that's what Vintage Violet looked like on my first couple of manis.
Anyway, I'm chalking all that down to user error - because I hadn't had problems with it before. I have a mani coming up with SH Antiqued Gold that went perfectly, so that's something to look forward to.
