China Glaze Crackle Nail Polish Lightning Bolt

China Glaze Crackle Nail Polish Lightning Bolt

Hello Everyone! I wanted to share with you cuties my second attempt at applying crackle nail polish. You can see this article on my first application of China Glaze Crackle Nail Polish – Black Mesh and also see the tips on the right way to apply crackle nail polish.

Today, I am showing you China Glaze Crackle Nail Polish in the white colour Lightning Bolt. As mentioned in my earlier article, I got these crackle nail polishes as a set of 6 colours from an online shopping site.

First, I applied my base coat – Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat, followed by the base colour for the white crackle nail polish – Bourjois Ultra Shine So Laque No. 31 Bleu Violet, price Rs. 350. This is a deep violet creamy nail colour.

This is how it looked after application of 2 coats:

After giving a good gap of at least 6 hours, I applied one coat of the white crackle nail polish.

Crackle nail polishes

I found that the best way to get your crackle nail polish to look downright outstanding is to use a completely opposite contrasting colour as your base nail paint. Also, once your crackle coat has dried completely, use a top coat to ensure longer wear and more attractiveness, as crackle nail polishes dry to a matte finish.
