Wheel E9: Cracked, Crackle, Shatter

Today on Nail Wheel Wednesday I return to the heady days of the early 2010s, when crack polish was everywhere.

(all one coat over white creme, with clear topcoat added after the cracks formed; on odd numbered tips, crack was applied base to tip, on even ones, it was applied diagonally)

19. BYS Cracked Finish Purple [this and 20 had settled more than others, and took a long time to dry and form cracks, which as you can see were finer than other brands on this wheel; these are from the heady days when I swapped polish with ladies around the world]
20. BYS Cracked Finish Black [no shimmer in this, unlike its purple sibling]

Now that I've seen these in action again, I'm itching to use them on my nails. So what if the trend has passed? Fun is fun.

  1. I think I have a few of these hidden somewhere in a drawer... I should dig them up, they really are fun :)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
