*Le Sigh* Disappointment...

I was super excited to try out CG - Oxidized Aqua crackle polish, and as much as I hate to say it, it was a great disappointment. I did a few trials on one of my nail wheels, to see which polish it would look best on top of, and I noticed that it just didn't crackle nicely. I tried it over polish w/o a top coat, and then with one, I tried it with a thick coat of crackle and with a thin just didn't want to do it. I hoped it would crackle correctly whenever I applied it to my nails, so after applying Pure Ice - China Girl (a beautiful shimmery peach-pink) and a coat of SV, I applied Oxidized Aqua and it just didn't turn out attractively.

I am going to have to say this one is a no go. It made me very sad because I love China Glaze. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this polish?

Well onto a happier note, I had a good time doing another mani on someone other than myself lol. I was requested to do a design I haven't tried yet, and I gave it my best. I attempted to use a nail art pen first, but it just beaded up over the top coat so I brought out the trusty Stripe Rite ^^

I used Sally Hanson Xtreme Wear - Violet Voltage as the base color over CG - Strong Adhesion Base Coat. I think it turned out pretty well. I still need to practice my striping technique but I think its improving lol As long as she was happy, then I guess they turned out great ;)

As always, comments and suggestions are always welcome ^^ I'd love to hear from you.
