Crackle-Lacque'n: Pink and Silver

See my first Crackle-Lacque'n post here.

Hello all! Time for a quick mani.  It was time to do my nails again, but I know that they will just get ruined at work, so I opted for something quick and easy, so I wouldn't be as disappointed when it started to chip.  I haven't used crackle polish in a while, and with my recent stash organization, I saw all the wonderful bottles that were being neglected and decided to give them some love.

At the Bronx zoo, the girl keepers like to joke around that crackle nail polish was made just for us.  Since our polish barely lasts a day with all the working with our hands, water, bleach, and everything else.  So we like to wear crackle to work so when our polish chips, its harder to notice :-p

I started with Revlon Top Speed in Metallic.  It is an amazing metallic silver,  I fall in love with it every time I put it on.  Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

I decided to do an accent nail on my ring finger.  So I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Bubblegum Pink.  I have talked about this polish before, but it is a perfect pink color!  Not to dark or light or bright, and application is a dream!  It is so smooth and just about a one coater.

Then, I topped Metallic with LASplash Crackle'd in Love'd, a pretty pink crackle polish.  And over Bubblegum pink, a coat of Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Fractured Foil.

On my left hand I reversed the two.  So I used Bubblegum pink, with an accent nail of Metallic, and respecting crackles.

I love how this came out.  It is almost hard to tell which color is the under polish and which is the crackle overcoat unless  you look closely.  Seriously.  Take a few scoots back from your computer and tell me that you can't tell the difference!

Here is what I used:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Bubblegum Pink
Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Fractured Foil
LASplash Crackle'd in Love'd
Revlon Top Speed in Metallic

Base coat: Nailtiques Formula 2
Top coat: Seche Vite

I know most of you are over crackle, blah blah blah, but what do you think of this mani?  Any intentions of breaking out your crackle polishes again?
