Kelier purple crackle - Review

Heya,

Wooo I changed my blog, from a standard template to pick-your-own-colors. Not as fancy with shading and stuff and I think it'll take some time for me to get used to, but I'll give it a go :) Took some time to get things sorted though, it's been ages since I worked with a bit of code and making images, I totally lost it :') So I'll probably mess around with it a bit more later.
What do you think about the result so far, do you like this more or the old template that I had? :)

Today I'm wearing the crackle polish that Born Pretty Store kindly send me for review, Kelier Nail Crack in purple. A lot of companies have crackles now but I didn't have a crackle polish before, so I'm not sure if others are harder or easier to apply. I read the Kelier ones dry a bit slower and it indeed did, but I think it was handy to have more time for the application. It seemed that if it's applied too thin, it'll give tiny crackles that jump off your nails fast, so I applied a thicker coat. I'm not used to using thick coats, so that got a bit messy, and on some places I should've used less polish. But now I know that for next time :)

I do like the way the Kelier crackles compared to other brands, but oh, the cleanup >.< I'm picky with it and this polish combined with my application didn't make it easy for me!
Next time I'll cleanup after the base color first, so it's easier to stay within the lines with the crackle polish, if that makes sense. I'll also do the crackle cleanup while it's still wet, it really gets hard when it's dry, making it very hard to cleanup without accidentally pushing off bit and pieces of crackle.

I used 2 coats of Essence Enchanted Fairy which is a light pink/mauve kinda color, 1 thick coat of the Kelier and a coat of Seche Vite.


I think I have a better feeling for the application now, so next time should give less thick results, showing the nice purple color and the crackles better.

You can buy this polish in various colors at Born Pretty Store for $4.52.

Have a nice day :)
