Sally Hansen Pedal To The Medal and More Crackle Love

Well I still love crackles so for today's manicure I used two coats on Sally Hansen Pedal To The Medal and then China Glaze Cracked Medallion on my index, middle and pinkie fingers. Then I used China Glaze Tarnished Gold on my thumb and ring finger. I finished this manicure off with a top coat of Seche Vite.

I used thin coats of the crackles because I wanted the base colour to show through and find that thinner coats allow the cracks to form better. I had to really shake up my bottles to mix my polish but after that I had no problems with the formula. It was smooth to apply and the crackles formed quickly and readily.

Just a few photos today and I was trying to really capture the contrast between the silver base and the metallic crackle.

I was really happy with how this turned out because I was in the mood for a kind of molten metallics manicure and I think these polishes and shades came together really well. I have to remember to post Pedal To The Metal on its ownand see how the 'Complete Salon Manicure' works since it's supposed to have a top and base coat incorporated!
