I've been wanting to try the crackle nail trend for a while now but, to be honest, haven't been interested enough to spend the money on something I may or may not like. So when a friend offered to let me borrow hers earlier this week, I jumped at the chance to try it.

She had bought Sephora by OPI in the very sparkly Blasted Gold, which I paired with Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer in Navy Baby.

(Side note: I haven't been able to find this line of nail polish anywhere since I bought this one a few years ago and think it might be discontinued. Sad face. If I'm wrong and someone knows where I can find it, please let me know!)

Anywho, here is the result:

The jury is still out on how I feel about the look. Maybe I should've had a lighter/more summery base coat, but went dark because I wanted the full effect. Or maybe I need another "crackle" color altogether. One that's darker and can be paired with a light base coat, perhaps.

Have you tried this trend? What are your favorite color combos?

  1. I found that the silver and gold crackle polish doesn't work as well. I have black, white, and pink and they work really well! White as a base color looks good with all the crackle colors.
