Pure Ice Crackle & Ice Duo Strike A Pose

Pure Ice Crackle & Ice Duo Strike A Pose is a nail polish set that includes a silver glitter polish (Beware 537CP), a blue crackle polish (Strike A Pose 576CP), and a cute little nail file that shows the effect these two polishes will have together.  I love the packaging these polishes came in.  I think it is very clever that the free nail file gives a sneak peek of what these two shades will look like on your nails.   
I started this look with Sinful Colors Basecoat.  I then applied two smooth coats of Beware.  Beware is a light silver glitter packed polish.  This is a gorgeous color that would look great even if worn on its own.   
When Beware was dry, I added one coat of Strike A Pose.  Strike A Pose is a striking shade of blue.  It went on easily and cracked nicely.   
I finished this look off with N.Y.C.’s Grand Central Station.  
I am impressed with this set.  I think the silver glitter with the blue crackle on top looks amazing.  These colors definitely go good together.  Both these polishes were easy to work with and the end result is eye grabbing and spectacular.  If you like crackle polishes I would recommend checking out the Pure Ice Crackle & Ice Duo sets.  These can be purchased online at and also at Walgreens and Wal-Mart stores.

St. Patrick’s Day Mani Ft. Green Ocean and Four Leaf Clovers

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I picked up Sinful Colors’ Green Ocean knowing this is what I would wear on my nails for St. Patrick’s Day.  This is a lovely green flakey polish with flashes of blue in it.  I applied three coats.  
When this was dry I used Wet N Wild’s French White Crème and MASH Plate m22 to stamp on cute little four leaf clovers.   
I topped it all off with N.Y.C.’s Grand Central Station.  
I love that Green Ocean has different shades of green and flashes of blue in it.  This polish definitely caught my eye.  The four leaf clovers with the little hearts are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

Lizard Crack Pattern Nail Polish BH 52 Marina

Today I have a blue crackle nail polish from Everbella Nail & Beauty Supply. This polish is part of a three piece set. You get a crackle polish of your choice (there are 30+ colors to choose from), a clear top coat polish, and a base color polish that is either white, black, silver, pink, or purple.
My set came with a pink polish. This is a very pretty shade of pink with a nice sparkle to it. I applied three coats of this pink polish.
When my base polish was dry, I applied the blue (BH 52 Marina) crackle nail polish (marked X&D on the bottle). Everbella’s website has an instructional video showing how to apply these polishes which can be seen here. The crackle polish is applied both vertically and horizontally in this video. I decided to try applying the crackle polish this way as well.

The crackle polish is a bit thick, but it works very well.  The BH 52 Marina is a beautiful blue color.  It is a lighter shade of blue that reminds me of the turquoise found in Native American jewelry.  I waited a few minutes to make sure the crackle polish was dry and done cracking (the color lightened as it dried).  I then applied the clear top coat (this darkened up the crackle polish again to the color in the bottle). 
Because this polish is such a pretty shade of blue I decided to try it on another color as well.  For this second look, I applied two coats of Pure Ice’s Strapless.  This is a dark blue polish with tons of sparkles in it.
When this color was dry, I added the BH 52 Marina Lizard Crack Pattern Nail Polish.  I decided to apply the crackle polish vertically only this time—just to change up the look a little bit.  When the crackle polish was completely dry, I added N.Y.C.’s Grand Central Station as a top coat. 
Overall I am very pleased with these polishes.  A definite thumbs up for anyone who wants to get their nails noticed.  There is a great variety of colors to choose from.  Here is a color chart of the 30+ crackle polishes. 
The three piece set can be purchased from Everbella’s website for $4.99 (great value).  The lovely Florence from Everbella has also graciously offered readers of my blog a 10% off coupon code.
