For this manicure, I've selected a close range of analogous colours Orange-Yellow to Coral-Red sort of like a Gradation Manicure. Then paint each nail with selected colours. Somehow, my camera couldn't capture the colours well. I always find coral colours are always hard to photo to the true colour.

Application for L.A. Colors Shock was a bit disappointing despite its vibrant almost orange-yellow colour. It applied like a jelly and it dries semi-matte. It needed 3 coats to make opaque. Next time I would definitely build the colour with a yellow varnish first as a base colour.

For best result, let your nails dry first before you put on a thin layer of Barry M Black Magic Instant Nail Effect. If you put on too thick it might not crackle. The most fun of part of the manicure is watch the nails crackle before your eyes! It dries matte and apparently easily flake off if you don't put a topcoat on top.

Barry M Black Magic Instant Nail Effect available now for £3.95.

The pictures aren't showing up for me... :(

Weird It's fine on my end. Will see if others have the same problem. thanks for notifying...

Ooh, I like it! Now that I can see it. :)

I've already seen the crackle nail polish on another blog and loved it! I like the idea of having each nail polished by a slightly different colour -- the effect looks fantastic! :)

I want it!

I don't own ANY crackle polish, they don't sell those in the netherlands :( I want one sooooo bad!
Oh, and I tagged you with an award!

BarryM does international shipping! They'll ship to Netherlands.

This crackle polish is also going to be part of my first 50 giveaway, I'm only 2 followers away. Watch this space!

Thanks for the mention! I love the crackle look. I wish they sold those polishes in the US! :(

This is a great look! I love ombre manis but never thought to use a crackle over them; it really ties the look together.
