Pink Wednesday!! Essie Splash of Grenadine + China Glaze Oxidized Aqua

Happy Pink Wednesday loves!!

  Today I am breaking the rules a little by making the lovely Aqua metallic crackle my main color. I really love this two together. It is like edgy cotton candy.
In the picture above I have China Glaze's Oxidized Aqua crackle over Essie's Splash of Grenadine. Then I really wanted to wear this matte so I added Two coats of Hard Candy's Matte-ly in Love.

In the pic below it's glossy. I actually liked this better matte.

And here is a swatch of Essie's Splash of Grenadine. This one is a pretty, very cool toned Pink with heavy Lavender undertones. The formula is slightly jelly like and easy to work with. It is also slightly sheer. For this mani I used Three coats of color for full opacity. This baby came from my recent Apothica haul. It was a lemming that I developed out of the Blue some time ago after seeing a swatch on someones site. I'm not 100% happy with this pic so I may be showing this again soon.
Happy Pink Wednesday!! What's on your tips today?

  1. Nice combo! The pink really brings out the blue in the crackle! I have only been able to find the bronze one so far. I may have to go back to Sally's

  2. That crackle polish is really pretty! :)

  3. I like this look. I hadn't seen anyone with the metallic on. It looks way better than I thought it would :)

    Hope you have a great day :)

  4. I'm really loving the metal crack. These go so well together!

  5. So cute, I recently did Katy Perry teenage dream with China Glaze crushed candy crackle over it and it looked very similar, totally the cotton candy thing. Love your mani!!

  6. This is a gorgeous combo . I need these crackles.

  7. I have been wanting Splash of Grenadine for a while now. I love it with the shatter :-)

  8. I have been a big fan of Splash of Grenadine since it came out last year - cannot get enough of it.
