Wheel A10: Crackle Polishes

I'm still sorting the last of my cremes and shimmers into major color groups, so they're not the point where I can just grab 20 and make a wheel, but my special effect polishes are to that point, since I do those by brand/finish rather than hue. So today I have a blast from the not so distant past: crack polishes. (Of course there's always the possibility that I will find more of the same finishes/brands as I empty the last of the boxes I'm unpacking, but I'm just gonna have to live with that. It's good for me to learn to deal with things like that.)

  1. I do still like a good crackle! :-D

    I am still trying to sort mine and scared to admit it is time for another Helmer!

  2. I like crackles too even though I hardly ever use them. :)
