Diagonal crackle mani with Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat

I love doing diagonal tape mani's because they're so simple and striking to wear so when I saw a fabulous diagonal crackle mani on Nailside's blog (here) I just had to try it!

This is one fine coat of Sally Hansen's Vintage Violet applied over SugarBaby's lilac creme Time Out.  I experimented by applying a thicker coat of crackle on my other hand to see the difference but it turned out unevenly and didn't work at all, so it's a thin coat of crackle to achieve the best result as shown here:




I think this is a great fun idea to get more use out of shatter or crackle polishes and I was pretty happy with my first attempt.  What do you think?

    1. Thanks Ling! I've done a few of these diagonal tape mani's now because they've got to be the easiest method of nail art!

  8. Wow, that's really creative, Vita! It reminds me to try being more creative with my nails again. Lately I'm just going through nail fatigue and apply only straight creme solids.

    1. I'd love to see you do a creative nail post! Nothing wrong with the cremes though - I find my taste has shifted from metallics to cremes lately too.
