Cracking nail polishes

Hmm... So there has been a pretty HUGE hoo-ha about the cracking nail polish huh?

I've heard many people raving about the OPI Black Shatter...
Many other brands are coming up/ have came up with their cracking nail polishes too!

Well, I seriously don't know which company came up with such nail polishes first.

Anyway, I found cracking nail polishes sometime back in Singapore before this BIG hoo-ha, so I thought it is the "right" time to blog about it now! :D

The brand is not really known (at least by me!) and it says CHNails...

I got it from a pushcart in Level 1 Liang Court (Clarke Quay) and the seller has a pretty wide range of colours!

I bought the hot pink one as shown above and a purple one for my friend as a Christmas pressie last year.
(Yup, that's how far back when I found such nail polishes!)

This is how it looks like with a black base:
My first try-out.. Not perfect but I'm happy with the look!
There are some tricks to really make the nail polish work for you:
1. Wait for the base (black colour in this case) to dry completely first.
This is to prevent any smudging.

2. Next is to put on a thick coat of the cracking nail polish and brush it on the nails with one stroke at one particular area.
If you go over the same area with more than one stroke of nail polish, you won't be able to see the cracking effect nicely.

I only succeed after a few tries... :)

Oh! I almost forgot the price.. It got this at SGD 12.50.

Let me know if you want it but can't find it ok?
I will try to get them for you guys and send them to you!

I'm sorry that I don't have the colours available at the moment but will let you all know if I happen to go to the store again!

Hope you enjoyed this post!
