A Crackle Combo

It's been a while since I did a crackle combination it seems. I still have tons of crackles that I have yet to try! This is China Glaze- Cracked Medallion from last summer's Metallic Crackle collection. It is layered over Wet n Wild- I Need a Refresh-Mint which was recently released in the new Megalast line. This picture is without the flash.
With the flash, you can see how metallic Cracked Medallion is. My Cracked Medallion was never used before this mani and it was somewhat goopy and thick. I debated adding thinner, but it ended up cracking pretty well without it. I like when the cracks are more spaced out and you can see more of the base color beneath. It crackled pretty quickly too.
This is I Need a Refresh-Mint. The picture was taken without the flash. This applied very nicely and was completely opaque in two coats. I really like the brushes on these. They're larger than the OPI Prowide brushes, and they weren't that messy. It made it easy to get a clean, even sweep of color. This is a beautiful blue-toned mint green creme. There is one downside to this shade though, that being that it stains. It doesn't look like a color that would stain, but even with basecoat, I had random streaks of blue on my nails after removing this. Make sure you use basecoat with this shade!
