Poor Crackle...

So, I know a lot of people HATE crackle polish. Poor crackle, it must have just been overplayed when it first came out. I grabbed an OPI crackle when it first came out (silver shatter) and I'm not going to lie...I still love a good crackle. I have several in my collection. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. I don't wear it often, but the versatility, ease of use, and ability to hide wear helps crackle keep a special place in my heart. So, I recently wanted to use an untried crackle of mine, China Glaze Haute Metal. It's a pale shimmery pink and it only really looks good over white unless you do a really thick layer. And, if you layer it too thickly, it wrinkles, which happened on my middle finger. Boo. That being said, I started with my base white color, Zoya Gaia. She is GORGEOUS, my absolute favorite white polish! I love that she shimmers just a little bit. I actually have more pictures of Gaia than of the crackle, hahaha! She's just amazing in the sunlight! Then, I polished one coat of Haute Metal over the top of Gaia before finishing it up with my homemade holographic top coat. These pictures were taken indoors on a partly sunny day without flash. Enjoy! :)
