When I am Bored with My Nail Polish… #3

22 Mar

Some nail polishes last me more than 3 days and on days when I easily get bored with my nail colour yet lazy with doing the whole nine yards of cleaning my nails and changing the nail polish, I just think of ways to change the look of my nail polish. Read the entries for No. 1 here and No. 2 here.

Number Three: I crack ’em!

(Nail Paint by Barry M Instant Nail Effects – Crackle in Black Magic, The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801 and It’s Skin Makeover Crack Color PP02)

To give your two or three day old nail polish a new look, why not apply a crack nail polish to achieve a different look. Crack nail polishes come in handy on those lazy days. The effect doesn’t look as neat as you want it to be, but that’s the essence of it, to make it look “cracked”.

Here are some samples of what I did:

1. Caronia Frosted Beige

2. Caronia Sun Kissed

3. Caronia Frosted 24K Gold

I have already created a separate entry when I tried using my The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801 and you can read about it here.

How do you like crack nail polishes? Do you like the cracking effect?

Cheers 🙂

Melted Chocolate on My Nails

20 Mar

So okay… they’re not actual melted chocolates but I just got a new crack nail polish from The Face Shop Crack Collection in BR801 and when it cracked on the nails, they look like melted chocolates. I looked for a “foil” looking nail polish from my collection and found a Caronia Golden Bronze which was given by a friend last Christmas.

I first painted my nails with Caronia Golden Bronze.

After my “foil” nail polish dried up, I applied a layer of The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801. I made sure to be quick and to get as much nail polish as it dries fast. I usually just put a layer of crack nail polish to have more “crack” effects later on.

I put a top coat after to give my nails some sheen, or else the crack effect would look matte.

So here’s how it looks…

They look like melted chocolates, don’t they? Or maybe it’s just me 😉

The products that I used are Tony Moly Nail Enamel Basic TC01 Top Coat, The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801, Caronia Golden Bronze and The Face Shop Nail Nutrition Coat.

So, how do you like crack nail polishes? Care to share?

Cheers 🙂
