I Crack Myself Up

Hello!!  Time wasn't exactly on my side today, but I wanted to give you something!  I received a new crackle polish today, Funky Fingers Teal Scales.  It's more than commonly known that I'm not much on crackles.  But, this is a glitter crackle - so  is this gonna tip the scales??  Get it?  Teal Scales ... Tip the scales?
See?  I really do crack myself up!


I started with two coats of OPI Funky Dunkey.  As far as purple cremes go, this one is at the top of my list.  It's such a rich color, and has an amazing natural shine to it.  This is two coats with no top coat!  
Lovely, isn't it?!


Next I applied one even coat of Teal Scales, and crossed my fingers.


And, to be honest, not only do I not hate it - I actually really love it!


There's something about the glitter that makes all the difference in the world when it comes to crackles!


I finished with two coats of SV.  I decided to go with two coats to cut down on the textured appearance that shows up with crackles.  (I think that may be one of the things I dislike most about crackles.)


Overall, I really like this look.  I love the way that Funky Dunkey pops beneath Teal Scales.  I hope you enjoy it too!

Happy Painting!
