Cracking/Shatter Nail Polish

Hey Dolls! :) It's been, what, 2weeks since my last post. So, here's one for all of you... <3

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. :)
