The Nail Files Thursday: BYS Cracked Finish Red Manicure

by - Thursday, October 20, 2011

Finally, another post for all you nail art lovers! I recently tried out crackle (or shatter, whatever you wish to call it) polish! Here are the results:

The brand I used was BYS Nail Enamel. After seeing it reviewed on a blog, I loved the results and wanted to try it out for myself. I purchased a red cracked finish kit which contained a french white base coat, the cracked finish and a clear top coat.

I'm not totally sure of this one, the colour combination just didn't appeal to me as much as I thought it would. I think I need to try out some other colour combinations and have a play around and add some nail art. I have just invested in some OPI shatter polishes so I'm really looking forward to seeing how they turn out. I've noticed that just about every nail polish brand has now jumped on the crackle nail polish bandwagon. I'm really happy about this because I want it in every single colour! Addict much?

Over all, I adore the concept of cracked polishes. This manicure was so easy and the polish was a dream to apply. The only negative thing I have to say about this polish is that some of the cracks didn't form properly on some nails, so I had to remove it and attempt application again- I'm not quite sure if it was me or the polish but I think it turned out ok in the end. I'm excited to experiment with other colours- I can see how amazing they will be!
