With crackle nail polish, your fingernails (and toenails even) will show a jagged and “cracked” surface. What’s great about crackle nail polish is it contains ethanol, which makes this unconventional nail polish dry easily. The quick-drying effect of ethanol results in the rugged look of cracked nail polish.
Applying crackle nail polish is as simple as putting on your traditional nail polish. You need to remember that you need to apply at least two coats of nail polish. The first coat you need to apply will be the hue that will show “in between” the cracks once the polish has dried.
Remember to pick a base coat which is not waterproof, so you can attain the best “cracked” nail look. When applying the first coat, do so thinly and evenly. Applying the base coat twice will show less “cracks,” which will make your fingernails look unkempt rather than cute.
It’s also important to apply the crackle nail polish thinly and evenly. As with any other nail polish, start from the base to the edge of the nail for an even application.
To have the great crackle nail polish that expensive manicurists are known for doing, remember this rule of thumb: put a dark-colored crackle nail polish over a light base coat such as white, beige, or baby pink; and put a light-colored crackle nail polish over a dark-hued first coat such as black, brown, or navy blue. The contrast makes the crackle nail polish stand out.
If it’s your first time to use crackle nail polish, then experiment with one fingernail first before coating all your fingertips. If you’re not that adventurous with combining colors, then try these time-tested partners. The combination of black and silver, and black and gold are perfect even for the office, or if you plan on attending a formal function. If you want a striking and youthful look, try the crazy color mixes of orange and silver, purple and teal. If you want a more dramatic look, you can try alternating base and top coats for a more dramatic effect!
