I can’t count the number of times I’ve said on this blog “I’m so over crackle/ fracture/ shatter/ whatever you want to call it polish!!!!”. Well, here I am once again eating my own words. Turns out I’m not really over crackle, I just didn’t have the right crackle polish.
While I was browsing the beauty section at my favorite Target store several weeks ago I spotted (what seemed to be new…) NYC Crack Me Up crackling effect top coat. My initial reaction went something like “seriously NYC?”. But then I looked at the offers a bit more closely and fell in love with Broadway Smash. Well, at least the color. It looked beautiful in the bottle! Since the polish only cost $.99 I decided to give it a try.
Broadway Smash is a beautiful purple leaning blue creme. I love this kind of color (and I owe that to Lindsay Lohan….really). I decided to use this over a plain white polish (Ulta Snow White). I applied a fairly thick coat of Broadway Smash and ended up really liking the results.
It was refreshing to find a crackle polish I actually liked. Go figure it was the least expensive one I’ve tried!
There is little to no information about this top coat on the web so I can only assume this is a new product that hasn’t hit many stores yet.
Are you totally over crackle (and think I’m totally crazy for actually liking this nail polish….) or are you still open to the idea of using a crackle top coat? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
As always, there are more swatches below the jump.
