NOTD: Addicted To Crackle - Black And Gold

I bought Barry M's crackle effect nail paint in gold last week and thought I'd try it out today.

I picked gold from the selection of colours they have because it would pretty much go with any base colour of choice.

It's the first time I've worn any kind of instant nail effect polish so was intrigued to see how it would work.

I applied two coats of Bourjois So Laque Avec Vinyle in 'Noir De Chine' then a single coat of the Barry M polish on top.  

I had to apply the top coat of Barry M on fast because I noticed that the excess polish that I'd wiped back into the bottle started to get clumpy. 

I was staring at my nails with amazement just watching the effect happen. Smart. Very smart, and the black and gold combination goes very well. Will definitly be experimenting with more nail effects and patterns. 

What special effects nail polishes have you used before? What's your favourite?

  1. Thanks! I thought so too. I'm really loving nail effects. It makes a change from plain nails.
