I read you need to apply it while the base coat is still tacky.

yeah it says on the side do not apply to dry polish but before that says wait 1-2 minutes until nails are touch dry go figure lol it works fine on normal polish im happy to say just not on Barry m silver foil effects maybe cause it metallic i dont know im wearing Barry m grey and white on my middle finger so the effect stands out more really does depend on how thick you put the croc effect on as i have different effects on each nail very funky think i like this more then there crack effect one anyway on with pictures :D

That looks amazing, I was going to pick up some today but I didn't have enough points on my superdrug card to get it D:
I did however get two new shades of barryM A bright green and pink crackle polish to see what the big deal with (also my mum bought me some in an orangey colour, can't remember the brand though)

Personally, I just think it looks messy, But I think it would look nice over black nails, so I will try that next time :3

Need croc effect.

Nails currently:

Models own black magic with MUA "shade 1" over the top. It's a very fine blue glitter, extremely hard to photograph & TBH hard to see IRL unless the sun shines on it.

I've decided to show of my nails. Nothing professional, just bored and in the Christmas/Winter spirit.. unfortunately, I live in south TX and won't be seeing snow so I figured I'd sport snowflakes.

Crimson Red with White and a layer of sparkly clear polish:

SImple for the toes, white then a layer of the sparkly clear polish:

Forgive the side messes, I didn't clean them up when I took the photos. ><

I saw something very similar to my latest colour scheme on Zellain Dystopia's Pintrest. But anyway, er colours were (from thumb to pinkie) models own - black, 17 - smoke signal, avon - matte grey, models own - the lightest grey they do & a white Rimmel thing ;)

Then I matte topcoated them.

I'm here!
I've had an account a little while now and I never have anything good to say.

I had ordered what I thought were polish strips which I have never used...I was so excited to try them and then I realized the description LIED and they were actually plain old stickers. They were full nail stickers but it was easier for me to just cut them into strips and only do tips

Image

They are hard to photograph because the skulls are metallic silver..and I apologize, they are peeling slightly. 3 days old and I wash my hands a lot. I'm going to be really sad when they are gone!

I also ordered, and I'm waiting for, printable waterslide decal paper...so I'll be making customs for myself, I can't even wait. I hope to post more here soon!!

I really should start taking pics of my nails again, currently they are Rimmel pearlised black with a matte topcoat and then the tips are glossy black, however the matte has gone shiny so it isn't really clear now :-(

Red glitter stuff from virgin vie - then I french tipped them with black but they weren't equal on each hand & I couldn't leave them so I added shatter polish.

I need to re black the tips because I can see a few red bits poking through.

Forgot I bought Haunting by China Glaze not too long ago. Thought I'd try it out as an accent with my current favorite Ruby Pumps, also by China Glaze.
