Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

For this mani I started with two coats of Nicole by OPI Nicole's Nickel, one of the new Spring Target exclusives. Nicole's Nickel is a black and silver glitter extravaganza! It has at least two sizes of silver glitter, which I love.

Next I added China Glaze Crackle Broken Hearted.

I REALLY like how this turned out! I would have been happy to wear it all week.

Alas, I made a tragic error in top coats and it only lasted just under a day. The polish nearly popped off my nails in whole or mostly whole pieces!

I should have known better, but I guess I don't use Seche Vite enough to really get all its ins and outs. I'm guessing my problem was in putting SV over Nicole's Nickel, then putting CND Air Dry over Broken Hearted. Live and learn!

For those of you who use SV to dry your base polish before adding Crackle or Shatter, what top coats do you like to use at the end that don't anger the Seche Vite? :) I'm guessing I could just use one of the several regular (not quick) drying top coats I own...but wondered what you all like to do. Thanks for any tips!

great combo!
i'll have to try this with milani silver dazzle, i think it's a bit similar.

I just use SV over my crackle/shatter manis and it works great.

I don't like the crackle look for the most part but I have to say this is the first combo that I have seen and absolutely LOVED! It looks amazing!


Absolutely stunning! I love the color combo you used, these swatches are gorgoeus with your lovely and gorgeous nails! Wow! I love crackle and shatter looks, must try them out, LOL


Mc Huggs :)

wow, love this! I was never really into NOPI, but I haven been really enjoying some of their colors lately!

I have never liked the crackle polishes, but this really looks amazing! It almost makes me want the pink!

I looooooooooved it!!! S2

I just let my nails dry naturally if I am going to use the Crackle afterward. Then I topcoat it.

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
