The Trend of Crackle Nail Polish


A new trend that we’re seeing among young women is crackle nail polish. This product is becoming very popular because it’s fun, colorful, and different. There are many different colors, which makes creating combinations fun. There are just three steps in applying crackle effectively.


Step 1: Apply a base color to your nails. If you’re using a simple colored crackle like black or white, you might want to use a bright color to provide fun contrast. If you’re using a bright colored crackle color, you can use a more simple color for your base. With crackle, it’s all about contrast.

Step 2: After you have let the base coat sit for quite a while to dry completely, you can apply a coat of crackle. Sometimes if you apply a thick coat the results aren’t very good, so it’s better to apply a very thin layer. Let this sit for a while, and cracks will begin to form all throughout your nails.


Step 3: It is very important not to forget this last step. Since crackle is an overcoat, it will easily flake off if you don’t apply a top coat. This is a simple clear coat to ensure the polish stays on, and it’s a good idea to use it even when you just have one color on your nails.

This is a fun style that has many options to go along with it. You can do a lot with crackle, and it’s a fairly affordable product. There are many different brands ranging in price. A cheaper, more basic option is the Mia Secret brand which you can purchase for $1.50. A very popular brand that is known to be trusty is Sally Hansen which can be found for $6.00 per bottle. You can purchase it in any drugstore such as Walgreens or CVS Pharmacy as well as in department stores and beauty shops.

 Have you tried crackle? If so, what do you think? Do you like what you’ve seen on others’ nails?
