On a whelm I decided to try Cherimoya 2012 Cracked Polish when I was on my secret trip to_____ (location I can't disclose) to buy perfume. "Pandemic" is a pale brown/ cappuccino-like nude crackle polish, that my collection seriously lacked. I told myself that I was really over the crackle...

like to say that this isn't the "prettiest" NOTD look I know, in fact it's flat out ugly and Zombading worthy, but I chose the colors to really just primarily show the crack effect in full. As a bonus, the bottle is much classier to look at than OPI's usual bottles. I didn't need another...

me is cool light taupe, near to gray but with hint of purple undertone. It has a glossy texture but dries matte. This will look great on whatever skin tone. Personally, I love how elegant this nail polish looks against my fingers. Makes me feel all grown up. For Php180 a piece and Php200 for...

Black Shatter – Deep matte black cracked polish topcoat. I tried this on bare nails with no luck. I followed the directions and used a single thin coat over completely dry nails and success was mine! Finally a crack polish that works. I'm hoping OPI makes a Whit Shatter, Red Shatter, Pink...

A look from the 90s is making its way back on nails in the '10s: "crack" or "shatter" polish. What is it exactly? While it actually looks more complicated than it really is, crack polish is a special top coat applied to your regular nail color that gives a "crackled" effect on the finish....

I finally settled for three nail polishes (and got another last week) and swatched the most unusual of my selection, Purple Dreams. This blue purple duochrome polish from the Illusion line, is infused with pink, green and blue glitter. I found it quite difficult to photograph. From one...

Not all cracked polish is the same and these are really good great. Its times like this I wish china Glaze had a wider and thicker brush because it would make the application easier. The trick with cracked polish is applying it in the amount of passes as possible without doing over the same...

Let's start with crackle polish I was most excited. This is Kelier Crack Polish in Red. Color definetely isn't red but shimmery hot pink. I applied 2 coats of Cheers to you by China Glaze's last Holiday collection - silver foil polish. I waited just a few minutes so the second layer was...

My only option was to buy crack polish from other companies online and I wasn't ready to risk it again. Out of nowhere comes OPI with their version of crack polish. Now if that's not a glimmer of hope then I don't know what it is. I'm so happy to share that OPI "Black Shatter" crack polish is...

A surprising number of stars kept their nails bare at last night's Golden Globes—but for those who decided to reach for the polish, purple was the colour of choice. (Unless you're Zooey Deschanel, in which case custom tuxedo-inspired nail art is the way to go!) From Jessica Alba's light...
