We were so honored to be given the opportunity to work with this new product before it hits the market. I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot of crackle polish in the coming year but here’s our early contribution.
From our 2022 Holiday Collection…
This is our Santa Baby & …I Could Skate Away On Crackle Polish Set – she is a baby blue creamy multichrome with a heavy pink iridescence and a rainbow of colors around the edges. I wanted to create a polish to represent my favorite Christmas song ‘River’.
Now, I want to clarify how these are different from crackle polish you’ve seen, or crackle topcoats. Crackle you’ve seen, have always been flat creams, so that alone is very different. These keep the brilliance and dimension that you’ve come to expect from us especially for the holidays!
How these differ from the crackle topcoats, is that the topper is milky in color, as a result it dulls the sparkle, shine and even shifting of colors, in our special effects pigments and glitters so you always end up with only half the effect, but you don’t have to settle anymore!
NOTE: You SHOULD be able to use just the toppers for a crackle look and supply the base and topcoat of your choice, but we cannot guarantee that!
Paint on the base color. You only need one coat! Let the base layer dry.
Topcoat it with Liquid Glass, let that dry.
Paint on the crackle coat. Make the crackle layer as thick as you want with one coat. You CANNOT do a second coat with crackle, so get it how you want it the first time and apply the magnet or place the finger on top of the magnet while painting. For the sharpest line please leave magnet in place till it dries and even when rewetting with a topcoat. As the crackle dries, you’ll see it separating and cracking, once it’s fully dry, you can topcoat. If you topcoat it wet, it will stop the cracking.
