Haul and a Zombie Mani

I stopped at the new beauty store in a local plaza and found they had a bunch of polish brands I'd never heard of before and they were all 1.99 or less so I picked a couple up. The white one is actually a pretty iridescent color that I'll use as topcoat.  Then I stopped by CVS to get more Seche and found their display of Sally Hansen Crackles! Yay me. I also picked up the Orly top coat just to compare.

Then of course I had to do a mani with the new crackles. Let me tell you, SH crackle basically DOES NOT CRACK over completely dry polish. The drier the polish, the less crack so I'd advise using it over a slower drying polish for a good effect. Here I  used the red, Cherry Smash, over Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Gunmetal. It looks like zombie skin! (I also matted it out with Essie Matte About You)

It was kind of creepy looking so I took that off last night and did Zoya Clara for a nice neutral, non zombie shade lol. You'll see that tomorrow!


  1. I sadly wasn't crazy about the SH crackles. I returned all of mine except the Violet and Gold ones. But it looks like you had better luck with yours.

  2. I agree with you, the crackle probably doesn't have the effect you were looking for, but the other shades look great! :)
