Recent NOTD: Cracked Hearts

I meant to post about this look closer to the time I wore it but got distracted. Once Valentine's Day had passed, I wanted a change from the Sally Hansen Love Always strips, but didn't have time to do a full mani, so I turned to my friend crack and added a layer of China Glaze Platinum Pieces. I finished with China Glaze Matte Magic topcoat to tone it down. I liked the effect—the strips design was still visible but not so in your face with the love and the hearts, which I think most people had their fill of by then anyway.





A programming note: my schedule for the next week or so is going to be a bit more random than usual so my postings and replies and such will probably be showing up at different times of day or not at all depending on when I'm able to be at my computer.

    1. Samantha, I think it might need a slick surface to crack, so maybe a shiny basecoat on your bare nail first might work (let it dry well first, of course).
