Simply shattered!

Colors: Sally Hansen Plum Luck, Finger Paints Purple Palette, Finger Paints Art You Wondering?, Finger Paints Easel-y Entertained, China Glaze Platinum Pieces

I decided on a crackle mani today!

The Finger Paint glitters are very pretty, but quite sheer on their own.  I used one coat of Plum Luck, then applied my glitters in striped sections.  I didn't use tape on the stripes since I was using a crackle on top, and the lines didn't need to be perfect!  Some ladies aren't wild about crackle ... I like it!!  But, I've found that if you apply it in a side to side pattern, as opposed to painting it down your nail, you will get a much better pattern of shatter!!!  It can get a little messy this way, so I recommend using a piece of tape on each side of your nail to keep the sides clean!  I hope you enjoy!  Happy painting ladies!!!!


  1. I love this, adding it to my list of things to try. :)

  2. I'm so glad!!! It was a lot of fun to wear!!!!

  3. Oh my gosh! This looks like frozen lava! Love it! The crackle looks really good! (I'm not generally a crackle fan) ;)

  4. Frozen lava!!! I LOVE THAT!!! I wasn't a crackle fan myself, until I started swiping it from side to side or diagonally, instead of straight down the nail. The effect is so much better!!!
