Crack nail polish, nope I'm not smoking anything, have been appearing all over the blogesphere lately. As a lover of crazy nails, I thought I should definitely give it a try. I just wasn't sure that the nail polish was a available in Lebanon...but surprise surprise, it is. There's only one brand I found though and that's China Glaze. I bought the grey, which is called "Cracked Concrete"... such an appropriate name because that is what it looks like after it's applied. Check it out

As a base coat, I applied O.P.I.'s "Dating a Royal", which is a very lovely royal blue color, I had to apply two coats to get the color in the bottle. I then applied the "Cracked Concrete", I wasn't sure how it worked since it looks like plain nail polish.
But as soon as I applied it, it nail polish started to "recide" and the "cracks" began to appear. It dried fairly quickly, which is a big plus for someone like me who tends to ruin her nails RIGHT AFTER application (I know, you know what I'm talking about!).
The outcome was pretty, although next time I should go with a lighter base coat like a yellow or white.
Have any of you tried this "cracked" nail polish trend? Any tips you'd like to share?
