NOTD : Lets Crackle!!!


Don't you hate it when your nail polish doesn't dry quickly and you mess it up!!!

I do it all the time. I end up with patterns on my nailpolish from my bed sheet, my own fingers or the edge of my laptop, especially when the nailpolish is on the thicker side and takes ages to dry. The perfect solution to that is using a crackling nailpolish!

So my NOTD/W was supposed to be this pretty corally pink polish: 


But after a nap and messy patterns, it ended up into this:


Isadora Graffiti Top Coat in Spraycan blue



I love Graffiti/Crackling/Shattering nail polishes and definitely recommend you to try this easy peasy way of spicing up your nails without worrying about clumsiness or lack of fine artistic skills! :)

Products used:
Base - Two coats of Pink Service nailpolish in "Baby"
Top - One coat of Isadora Graffiti top coat in "Spraycan blue"


P.S: Do let your base polish dry before you add the top coat, even if you have messed it up!

P.P.S: There is another good thing about using these crackling top coats. Once your nail paint starts to chip from the front you can add just a little bit of base polish to cover the chipped areas and save the day. Because of the graffiti patterns it wont look weird =). I do this when I am feeling lazy and don't want to sport chipped polish somewhere special. Ciao!
