Cover Girl Crackle Polish
I finally found those Cover Girl 2 per pack nail polishes at Dollar Tree. I will show you all my complete haul in my next post but for now I will show you my favorite polish out of the bunch! I was so excited to get these packs and even more excited to see they had some Crackle nail polishes. I have been waiting for Sally's Beauty to get the China Glaze Crackle polishes. I will love this Cover Girl crackle polish as if it is my first born baby! (OK, maybe not but you get the idea!) Plus, from the swatches I have seen of the China Glaze crackles, I much prefer the crackle effect of the old school Cover Girl version!
There was only one shade of the Crackle nail polish in the packs I searched through, which is the one in the above manicure. It is called Boo! I am a little confused about what the color of this nail polish actually is. I mean, when I look at the bottle at different angles I see emerald green and a deep purple. In the pictures above the bottle looks to be a dark navy blue. When applied to the nail, the polish looks black! *shrugs*
I layered a thin coat of Cover Girl Boo! over Maybelline English Toffee, a pink coral shade (another old school polish from my haul). I made sure not to apply it thick or go over any of the crackle polish I had already painted. I began to see it crackle within 15 seconds and it completely crackled within 40-50 seconds. A top coat was definitely needed, otherwise the crackle polish who have just came right off.
Do you have any of these old school Cover Girl Crackle polishes? What do you think of them?
