I’m still messing around with the crackle polishes, and I can say without a doubt that the Matisse brand is the easiest to work with and produces the best results. Here I’ve got Mattese Elite Crackalacquer in Black over the hot pink Essie Short Shorts (which is sadly discontinued – I believe it was a limited edition color from two summers ago).
Other brands tend to get gloppy (is that a word? it is now) or don’t shatter enough to really see the color underneath. I’m looking at you, Sally Hansen! But more on that later.
What are you wearing on your nails this week?
