NOTD - Revlon Strawberry Electric + 17 Nail Xtras Gold Crackle

Instead of going for black crackle over yesterdays pink, I decided to give the gold another try and let it redeem itself, and I'm glad I did! I was disappointed in the gold crackle from 17 before, as it didn't seem to crack very much and even over dark colours looked a bit, well, rubbish. But over this pink it looks amazing, still didn't crack as much as the Barry M ones (in fact on the right hand where I am not so skilled and applied a slightly thicker coat, the cracks are bigger so that may be the key), but I love the effect I got.

Apparently MUA at Superdrug have released a shatter line, including a purple, so instead of waiting an age for Models Own to release their purple crackle, or dishing out on the China Glaze one I feel a trip to Superdrug coming on...

May have a teeny tiny haul post for you later...

  1. That's the best example of the 17 I've seen. I'll have another go with it and see if it crackles properly like it has for you.

  2. It is a nice gold color; I'm glad you gave it another chance. :)

  3. Very nice combination . I like the gold crackle a lot .

  4. I'm so jealous you managed to get it to crack so much!

  5. Thanks everyone :) My love for crackles is coming back...
