Nails Inc. Floral Street and Kings Cross Crackle

Good evening all!

  I know crackle polishes just became a "thing" again just last year, but doesn't wearing a crackle feel old school now? Nail trends come and go crazy fast don't they? Nails Inc. recently sent me one of their new Special Effects Crackle polishes to try along with a lovely White creme so I paired them for an eye catching look. 
 Kings Cross is a vivid neon Orange crackle. The formula on this crackle is the best I've ever come across. It applies like a jelly and you can really have a play on crackle textures. Meaning, the formula on this allows for thinner or thicker application for thinner or thicker cracks. It is very easy to work with.
  As you can see Kings Cross breaks up great and smooth. I hate when crackles get "lumpy" and you end up needing 17 coats of top coat to smooth it out. Kings Cross gets an shiny squishy texture once top coated and it looks awesome. The only downside is that I don't know how many colors this crackle would look good over since it's slightly sheer.

Here is my base color Nails Inc Floral Street. The name threw me off lol :D.
 This polish was such a pleasant surprise. The formula on this color is so smooth, even and perfectly pigmented. This is not a very bright White. This is a "soft" White. The formula is not a jelly creme but it applies like such. This you see here is just Two effortless coats of Floral Street. This might just be my new favorite White creme.
If you like shatters but have had issues with formulas I suggest checking these crackles by Nails Inc. Out. Nails Inc. polishes are available at Sephora.

Thoughts on neon shatter? I kinda love it.

  5. Its a really cute look. I think everyone got tired of the crack trend because of how over the top it went in such a short time. Now the gems are standing out, and people can decided wether they actually like the look for what it is, or pass on it with out worring that the polish they want will be sold out forever. Personally I (still!) like crackle/shatter/whatever but in small doses. This look plays on the orange trend too and I think its very cute!

  14. this looks really great! I love it and I don't like crackles (they look too lumpy). But not this one. Great job on the combo, looks like an orangesicle.

  15. I feel like crackle polishes are last year too. They just got run over by the new trends - most lately 'spotted effect'. But the idea of a neon creckle is awesome, it looks so fun for summer!
