Here's my short review on my BarryM cracking nail effects & Beauty UK shatter polishes. I hope you all like it & find it helpful.. ^_^
|L-R: Beauty UK Shatter Polish in GOTH, PUNK, GLAM ROCK|
& Barry M Instant Cracking Nail Effect in GOLD GLITTER
These babies I purchased online on a very reasonable price from Hoopsandloops. :)
One thing about these nail polishes, you need to apply a base nail polish(any Nail Polish you have) before applying this Shatter/Cracking nail polishes.
|i used these NYX Girls Polishes as base|
L-R: Black, Pimp my Nail, Bloody Mary, Mermaid Green
And so, I went ahead and applied 2 coatings of these NYX Nail Polishes i have.
(I will be doing a separate post/review on these nail polishes in the future.. hehehe.. ^_^)
***The thing is, you should let the base polishes to be totally dry before applying the shatter/cracking polishes to avoid the base to smudge when the cracking polishes are being applied.
After the base polishes are quite dry, I applied these shatter/cracking polishes.
- The first one is the BarryM Instant Nail Effect in GOLD GLITTER. Yes, it is really gold..haha!
I applied this on top of the NGP(nyx girl polish) in Black. As you can see, the cracks are big & chunky, that is because I applied a thick amount(two-three coatings) of the nail polish. If you want to achieve small cracks, apply single coat of the polish. ^_^
- Second is BeautyUK Shatter Polish in PUNK. The color is HOT PINK & other call it Neon Pink & it's semi-matte which I super love!!!
I applied it on top the NGP Pimp my Nail (Neon Green in color).
Look how pretty the outcome is!!! :)
I applied single coat of this shatter polish, hence the small cracks. ^_^
- Third, Beauty UK Shatter Polish in GOTH. It's semi-matte like the PUNK one but this one is my favorite because the color is very versatile & I can use this on top of any of my nail polishes.. ^_^
For this post, I applied 2 coats of this polish on top of my NGP BloodyMary which is Red in color.
**For me, this color is prettier when applied lightly with small cracks. :)
- Lastly, Beauty UK Shatter Polish in GLAM ROCK. I applied this one on top of my NGP Mermaid Green.
What can I say about this one? Urgh! This frustrates me!!! Seriously.
I have been trying & re-applying this polish for a while now & always get the same results, even when applied lightly or thickly.
Look at the picture. It cracks ever so lightly like nothing is happening. :( I don't know what's wrong with this one.
VERDICT: These polishes are great addition to every girls' kikay kit, especially the Pink & Black ones because those are the most versatile. :) These polishes when applied right and combined with right colors for base will give your nails that extra umph. ;)
and if you are bored with your plain nail polishes, why don't you give these a try? ^_^
That's it!!! I hope you all enjoyed reading my post. :)
