NOTW: Cracking Nails

Nail art and specially designed tools and nail polishes have been coming out of the market and I felt the need to try one. One of the new kinds of nail polishes which has come out of the market is the Cracking Nail Polish. At first I was hesitant to try one because how can they crack? And what if I won't be able to apply them well?

I finally gave in! I was just about to buy a facial mask from The Face Shop when I saw their nail polishes and then their Face It Art Nails Crack Collection. I was hypnotized into buying it! Haha! Some may find it affordable but hey I am super kuripot so I was shocked that I bought a P295.00 cracking nail polish when I've seen a lot of them sold online at much cheaper prices. Only, they aren't from The Face Shop. I guess I did buy the brand. 

Anyway, if you have been following my blog, you already know my drill in applying nail polishes. I just did the usual but for my base color I used the Caronia White Satin so that the crack will stand out since it's a dark shade. I applied two coats of the Cracking Nail Polish (BR801). If you only apply one coat, the crack will be small and it looks like they are just chipping so I doubled the coat to make the cracks more noticeable and larger. It worked. 

It was easy to apply and be very fast in applying them because they easily dry as well. It will have a matte finish but I decided to use a top coat just to make it last longer.

Have you guys tried any cracking nail polish? How was it? Most importantly, HOW MUCH IS IT? Will you be using them again? Leave a comment and share your experience!

Till next post!


  1. I've tried crackling nail polish but the one I bought was from Etude House. It's a lot cheaper but they only have two shades (Blue and Black). I find it better to apply a crackling nail polish to matte nail polishes rather than the regular ones cause it cracks more beautifully. Whenever I apply the crackling nail polish to a regular nail polish, even though my base polish has dried, it still smudges when I apply the crackling one. It looks messy.
