Nubar: Hollywood Pink and OPI: Black Shatter

I used two coats of Nubar 'Hollywood Pink' and then a coat of Seche Vite 'dry fast top coat'. Once dry I applied one coat of OPI 'Black Shatter'.

 The instructions for the 'Black Shatter' said to apply over completely dry nails which is why I applied a coat of the Seche Vite first and I only waited a few minutes before applying the crackle polish. It was late and I wanted to get finished. I wasn't sure if it would work as I didn't leave the base polish to dry longer but I am very happy with the finish.

I tried with different thickness of the 'Black Shatter' but it didn't make any difference to the finish.

This was the easiest crackle polish I have used and highly recommend it to lovers of the crackle finish.

I managed to get the full set of China Glaze 'Crackle Glaze' yesterday and so will be trying them soon.

CND: Red Hot Duo - Colour: Just Red - Effect: Red Sparkle

A great combination for this time of year. I love both the colour 'Just Red' and the effect 'Red Sparkle' by CND. They both painted really well and gave excellent coverage with no streaking. I can't wait to try 'Red Sparkle' effect over other colours in the CND range.

China Glaze: Mistletoe Kisses

'Mistletoe Kisses' by China Glaze is the second of the two polishes I won. It is a sparkly soft green. I don't usually like green but this and 'Emerald Sparkle' are two that I love.

China Glaze: Mrs. Claus

I won the China Glaze 'Rejoice!' pack from Mary at which arrived at the end of December. The photo above is showing Mrs. Claus, which was one of the polishes included in the pack, the other was Mistletoe Kisses which I will be showing later. Also included was a red candle. I love this set and am so delighted to have won it!

'Mrs Claus' is a pink glitter in a jelly base. I used three coats but two did give good coverage.
