[065] I Caved and 'Crackled'!


If I'm honest when Barry M released this nail effects nail polish I wasn't impressed nor tempted. I was a little over nail art/effects as it just reminds me of being an experimental teenager. Last week for some odd reason I had the sudden urge to own this, I think it's because I'd seen a woman rocking a white base with the black crackle and it looked HOT! I rushed to my local Superdrug (As you do) and picked it up along with a white polish. I got home painted them and well.. hated them! The black and white just didn't look right on me. Before I totally ruled the Barry M nail effects out I thought I'd give it another go and that's exactly what I did last night. I am still wearing Filthy Gorgeous 'Jim Jams' and I applied the Barry M black crackle over the top and I have to say I am really liking it. 


I think it's slowly growing on me, I also think the colour combination has a lot to do with it. I also dug out this double black stoned ring that I purchased in Miami last year I love wearing jewellery to compliment my nails. 



Have any of you been tempted by the crackle coats? If so what are your favourite colour combinations? What have you been rocking lately?

Lots of Love 



  1. I love the black one! My favourite combo is with a hot pink polish underneath. They've also got new coloured crackle polishes out. I bought the pink one but haven't tried it yet xx

  2. should be a nail model , honestly , your nails look so perfect every time ..
    and those pictures are striking , I love it ..

  3. p.s ..I love grey at the moment and red are my all time favorite ..

  5. I want this so bad now haha looks so pretty, Saying that I do also want the new colour crackle ones aswell, I think pink and white are going to be my first buys xx

  6. No joke, I did the exactly same thing as you!! LOL x

  7. I think it looks great! I love the colour combination. Try it with a gold base next time!

  8. Jim Jams is such a gorgeous colour!
    I am waiting for the Models Own coloured crackle polishes to come out.. They look HOT!

  9. Sometimes i like my crackles as it looks kind of edgy, but sometimes i hate them because it looks dirty :/

  10. I loved a gold crackle polish(no17 from Boots) over a dark coral colour :D it just looks fantastic!

  11. My fave combo is a nice bright hot pink with black crackle over the top. I can't wait to try Models Own's crackle polishes. I've tried OPI and Nails Inc but they don't compare to Barry M's crackle.

  12. I purchased the Barry M Nail Effects a week or so ago and I'm still undecided as to whether I like it or not.

    I first tried the Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream with it which didn't seem to work well but at the moment I have China Glaze Classic Camel with the nail effects polish on my toes which looks quite cool!

    Think it's something that will eventually grow on me! Definitely agree it's a lot to do with colour combination!


  13. I have the OPI Crackle and it looks so amazing with bright red nail polish!


  14. i actually LOVE the cracked nail effect! Gonna get the pale blue and pink ones to complete the collection lol

    BLEURGH & Xisses
