NOTD - China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Broken Hearted over A-England Lady Of The Lake

When crack met holo
I've not been too sure about all these coloured crackle polishes that have been popping up, I certainly love wearing black crackle but I wasn't convinced the effect would be as awesome with other colours, I'm happy to be wrong. Today's NOTD features A-England's gorgeous Lady Of The Lake, a unique deep mauve holographic polish topped with China Glaze Broken Hearted Crackle Glaze a bright candy pink Crackle Polish. Phew that was a mouthful.

Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
A-England Lady Of The Lake 2 coats
Top Coat: Seche Vite
China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Broken Hearted 1 coat in non overlapping strokes
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Like most crackles out there, the China Glaze Crackles dry matte, so you would need a top coat to make them shiny, they do look pretty cool and 3-dimensional matte though, here's a pic before top coat:
no topcoat
And some more indoors/outside with top coat piccies :D

I really like this effect, and I think the pink crackle goes very well with a purple base, especially when you can see the funky holo effect through the cracks, definitely happy with how this combo turned out :D Kind of reminds me of The Cheshire cat :D
