China Glaze Platinum Pieces Crackle – Mani of the Week

The man, work is asking us to dress up on Monday. I have no plans to do so however, I did decide to get a somewhat “festive” manicure this week. ( Who says I’m not a team player :/o ).  I also got asked about crackle polishes in a comment by peculiar Virtue so I thought this would be a great week to give it a try.

This is my first time using any of the crackle polishes. The China Glaze polish is mine. My intention was to layer it over the Milani Juicy Glo seen here. However my manicurist felt a black base would be more pronounced so she used one of her colors. I think the brand is Jade. I’m not a chemist so I’m not sure what makes the polish do that, but I think the concept is very cool and I’ve seen lots of very nice color combinations on the nail blogs. I like the black and grey combo a lot. It’s a little edgy. I like edgy.  Unfortunately, I don’t think the crackle look in general is one I would be able to pull off at work if it wasn’t a theme week. It is definitely something I would try again if I was going on vacation or perhaps during the upcoming floor to ceiling office holiday decorating contest week. (OK, I’m kidding about that last part….just a little bit).

    Haha, I am totally one of those people who would wear the "this IS my costume" tees instead of a costume. I love seeing what other people think of, but I'm too lazy to do it for myself!
