The Crackle or Shatter Nail Art

Hi, I will be doing a quick post today since there is nothing much to explain for the crackle or shatter nail art. I have already covered on what these nail paints and where to buy them here. So today I will be showing the results I obtained when I used them finally.

Yes, “finally” because even though I bought it over an year a ago, I never used it. Don’t get me wrong, but I personally do not enjoy short cut methods to nail art. Till the time I rack my brain for ideas, turn my nail paint basket upside down to decide the colors and dig my nail art basket deciding the tool to use; I do not get the feel of doing nail art. It doesn’t give me the joy of creation or sense of giving birth to a nail art :). I hope you understand.

The shatter nail paint takes away all those worries and leaves you with only one choice that is decide the base color :(. But that is a very pessimist way of looking at it, and being an artist at heart I must not limit the options. Okay, I promise I will come up with alternate nail art designs using shatter nail paint using my creativity :D.

Crack Nail Paint

The best thing about this form of nail art is that it be a quick fix to a spoiled base color. I did a horrible work with painting the grey base color, but I could instantly cover that up with this magic nail paint 🙂 One word of advice, please wait for the shatter nail paint to dry completely and only then apply the top coat. My shatter nail paint turns a shade lighter on drying. For my left hand I waited for it to dry fully but for the right hand I think I was a little too quick. So my left hand had a slight lighter shade of orange than my right hand.

I hope you liked the effect and although I am not particularly very inclined to them, one must own at least a single color of this. As I mentioned earlier, it is difficult to replicate the effect with manual nail art, so go ahead and invest in one 🙂

  1. Such a pretty colour! I very rarely wear shatter polish anymore but I do still have a soft spot for them. They are a perfect way to get a quick but interesting look. 🙂

  2. I only ever seem to resort to the shatter polishes as a quick fix cover up x

  3. I am yet to get my hand on crackle polishes…

    • Yes, even though I am not a fan of crackles but I guess its good to have a polish or two in your drawer. They are quick fix for spoilt polish ad give a nail art look in least time.

  4. Looks good Setu. Now doesn’t this crackle polish have the look of OPI? I thought at first it was it.
