30 Untrieds Day 6

Hello Lacquered Lovelies,
I woke up just a little later than normal I am usually up at 5am, polishing my nails by 6am and taking pictures at 6:30am, for now it is going to start getting darker and darker as winter approaches. I edit the pictures and write the post and am usually done by 8am. It is already 9:20am. I'm late, I'm late for a very important date. -Alice and Wonderland. I love that movie. We will see how well this situation works out, my sleeping schedule can get very messy at times. Sometimes I will sleep at day and other times I will sleep at night. Either way I will stick to posting one or more things a day.

Today I decided that it would a two polish type of day. These two surprisingly go well together, I thought the lighter blue wouldn't show up over the darker blue. It did just fine and I am kind of glad I did these two because the sheer blue shatter/crackle/whatever showed the darker blue through it before it was cracked, I can only imagine if I would have put it over a different color. I will test this though, soon.

Sinful Colors Gorgeous is a beauty frosty blue and green duochrome. Since it is a frost you can see the streaks from the brush in the polish, hence why I put the crackle over it. I don't really like frosts as much.  It also bubbles a little, I only saw one bubble on my right thumb and my left ring finger.  It takes about 2 to 3 coats for the polish to be opaque. Sinful Colors can be found at Walgreens, Target, Fred Meyers, and online at SinfulColors.com. I know they are really popular at Walgreens where you can find them for $1.99 and sometimes on sale for $.99, they actually do those sales quiet frequently.

LA Splash Crackle'd in Psych'd is a baby blue crackle with a cream finish. Very similar to Crushed Candy by China Glaze and For Audrey by China Glaze. This crackle is surprisingly thinner than the other crackles that I have dealt with China Glaze and OPI. I don't see this drying out anytime soon, my first OPI Black Shatter did within the first 5 months of having it. I found this at my Fred Meyer for $4.99 but they might mark them down like they do with most things that don't sell too well. I got another one too it is Broken Heart'd which is a neon pink.  *Note I have tried this Crackle before I just thought I would spruce the manicure up a little.

I suggest a thicker top coat for crackles, the thickness will go into the cracks and make for an even manicure. I don't like using a thinner top coat for crackles because I can feel the ridges that they give through the top coat. What I do is I use Beauty Secrets Hardener High Gloss Top Coat which dries super slow, then I will apply a thin coat of INM Northern Lights (non shaken) over the other top coat, this will allow the top coat under to dry faster. It is a long process but the outcome is amazing. Shiny too.

I won some 2012 Crackles so I will be getting those in the mail soon. Once I do I will do a post about them. The colors are supposed to be completely random so I won't know what colors I will be getting until they are here.
