NOTD: For Audrey On Crackle

Natural Sunlight (Overcast)
Last weekend I stopped into Sally's because I had a $5 coupon for being a member of the Sally Beauty Club. Initially, I was only going to pick up something that would be covered with the coupon but they are running a promo where you get a free Diamond Dry Air Dry Top Coat when you buy 2 CG polishes. I picked up CG "For Audrey" and CG Crackle Glaze in "Cracked Concrete." With my $5 Sally coupon, I ended up paying $5.98 for all three. Good deal!

China Glaze - For Audrey (2 coats)
For Audrey is a robin's egg blue creme polish that was released as part of their "Something Blue" Collection. As tribute to Audrey Hepburn and Tiffany's, this color resembles the Tiffany "color" very closely but is not a precise hit on it. For my base color I applied 2 coats of "For Audrey."

Cracked Concrete  is a dark grey creme polish. Here I applied 1 coat over my base color. It dried as a matte instantly and looked cool enough to just leave it the way it was but I didn't want to risk chipping. So I applied a top coat to seal in the polish.

Base: Sally Hansen Hard as Nail Strengthener - Natural
Base Color: China Glaze - For Audrey
Crackle: China Glaze Crackle - Cracked Concrete
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - Flawless

I really love this crackle polish compared to others, mostly because it takes effect very quickly before your eyes. Meaning no wait time! Hoping I can get the entire collection of crackles + the metallic crackles!

What's your favorite crackle polish?

  5. great combination, will have to try it. I like how yours CC cracked thin, mine is rather thick and cracks are bigger

  6. @Taj Acosta - Thanks!

    @Pop Champagne - :) I would have loved to see those. #shoeaddict HAHA

    @Hermetic - It may be due to the thickness of the crackle polish. Try applying it on with a thin layer.
