Mint crackle

Hi guys! I hope you are having a great weekend. For me it's studying again, as I have another week of exams ahead of me. Luckily it's the last one and I can't wait for it to end! I think it was about two weeks ago on a gloomy day that I thought I should make it better with a fun manicure. There's nothing like a bright, crazy color to cheer you up on a day like that. Here's what I came up with.

This is Rimmel Lycra Pro Peppermint, which has been previously reviewed here. To add a little something to the manicure I slapped on a coat of China Glaze Black Mesh (also reviewed here) and topped everything with a shiny coat of Out the Door. 

This is obviously not a fall mani, but it was fun wearing it. I think I'm kinda over the crackle look though, so I'm happy I didn't buy a lot of these polishes. 

You can see I'm very behind with posting manicures, but hopefully next week I will try to post more to catch up. I also can't wait to have time to do some nail art. I know I have been neglecting that part, but I was really swamped lately. I promise to redeem myself with some Christmas designs! 


  1. I am not a big fan of crackle but I do like to see them on other ppl and it looks great on them:)!!
    I bought the silver shatter and the pink crackle from China Glaze but I sold the silver shatter and gave the pink crackle to my cousin's cousin :P
    I like the mint green :3!!

  2. Mmm peppermint! If the crackle was brown, it would totally be an after either chocolate mani! Although it already looks like after eights since they use dark chocolate. Pretty mani!

    I agree that the crackle look isn't for everyone. I'm kinda over it myself. Would try one of those shimmery crackles though :P


    Love those After Eights! I haven't seen brown crackle anywhere, but I think this pretty much does it.

  4. I was thinking that too!!I like the silver shatter look!but I don't know why mine doesnt really "crack"T^T
    I m interested in the gold shatter tho haha:p

  5. I think I've read somewhere that these shimmery crackles/shatters don't crack very well. Barry M has some that are better and are easier to find in Europe.
