Towards the end of last year you may have seen me post about these crackle top coats from MUA. Well I finally got around to swatching them for you! My personal pet peeve is when people swatch nail polishes on paper, I really need to see them on the nails, so rest assured that is what I will do 99% of the time - the other 1% will be nail wheels when I want to show you loads at once! But today I have 5 fingers and 5 crackle polishes - perfect!
In total there are 6 colours available, the one I don't have is a deep fuschia called Shockwave and each costing £2.99. But lets not talk about what I don't have, but what I do! Each one has a decent 10ml of product in, enough to last a good while! One thing worth noting is the small brush though!Along with these Nail Quakes, MUA also do some glitter crackle top coats, which I have some of too - so perhaps I will have to swatch them for you too?
What did I think?
When I applied these I put just one coat on over a base colour (Essie Too Buy or Not to Buy), and after around 4 days have had only very minimal chipping.
Shiver - A bright coral toned candy pink - cream finish.
Broken Arrow - A medium blue toned bright purple - metallic finish
Quiver - A bright cobalt blue - cream finish.
Shattered Ice - A stanadard silver polish - metallic finish.
Jailbreak - Black as ice! - cream finish.
My personal favourites? The black and purple - but there's something about that pink too! Which is strange as I'm really not usually a pink lover! Crackle polishes are a bit last year now, we're getting into the textured polishes for this year - which I can't wait to try! However I still have some space for the crackles! Hannah
