    Doesn't really work

    I would love to say that this worked, as the concept is really cool! However, that is not the case at all. If anything, this looks more like caked on gloop than anything else. It did not crackle effect at all. I even used high quality nail polish underneath it, followed all of the directions and everything. This is more of a mess, than an effect. Sad.

    Cool effect

    I bought this nail polish for the first time several years ago when the crackle effect on nails was so popular. This nail polish will apply just like any other, but as it dries, the top layer will look like it cracked, letting the colour underneath through. The only downside is that you have to be quick and careful when using this - if you put too much on, or go over the same area, the crackle effect won't work and it will just look like a poorly done paint job.

    I purchased this after reading some not so good reviews, comeon its crackle, I remember something like this from when I was a kid, I got all the colors, thinking that some of my clients would love it. I used neon colors as my base colors after applying a neon base coat, and I am in love with the effect, just as I remembered it! Apply it thin and in single strokes, I found if you restroked in a section that it did not have the effect!

    I was so happy to find a product that does a crackle coat in amazing colours! Just follow the directions and you'll end up with amazing nails.

    So I bought the pink over coat with a black base coat. I Dont know what I'm doing wrong, but I cant seem to get it to work. It does'nt crackle at all. Even my 24 year old brother noticed them, and told me they look terrible and I need to take it off. :(

    It didn't go on a crackle effect. It just looked like a poor nail polish painting job

    So this product isn't very good. Every colour except black is opaque and looks like you painted with water colors. You MUST do a base coat your color a top coat crackle then another top coat. If you don't put a top coat on before the crackle it won't crackle that good at all.

    I like crackle nail polish because it hides my oops at times when my nail polish has not cured long enough and I end up getting gouges or some sort of disfiguring look to my clean a beautiful nails. To the rescue, crackle nail polish saves the day. The thing I like about crackle nail Polish is that it drys quickly then allowing me to use my Sally Hanson nail hardener as a top coat providing a wonderful shine. I have used the red crackle, gold crackle and the silver crackle. Sally Hansen crackle breaks apart nicely and quickly than some other brands I have tried. I really don't like the brush as it seems narrow and therefore you need to swipe about 4 times verses 3 with other brands leaving an uneven colour. What really surprised me was how fast my bottles of crackle dried out. Not a happy camper, what a waste! For variety sake, I put tape on an angle on 1/2 of my nail and the crackly silver colour on the other half. Nice look. For a cost of about $7.00, you could wait for the crackle to go on sale and use a coupon and get it for cheaper.

    I have the snow blast (white) & ink splatter (black). They both are amazing! They crackle, they do what their supposed to do. I bought 1 from Walmart the other from shoppers drug mart. They're about $5 each.
