This is Not a Nail Blog...

...but the Princess has been looking at nail blogs with me and she wanted to share her new mani using China Glaze crackle:
We started with a skittles manicure featuring five different neon (or near neon) colors.
Pink- Sally Girl: Way Cool
Orange- Sally Girl: Amped
Yellow- Nina Ultra Pro: Solar Flare
Green- Nina Ultra Pro: Lime Light
Blue- Sally Hanson Extreme Wear: Blue Me Away!

We did two coats of each polish and then used Out the Door top coat. When it was all dry, we applied one quick coat of China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Lightning Bolt, and then topped it off with another coat of top coat when it was all dry.

The Crackle Glaze went on kind of awkwardly, but it really doesn't matter because once it starts to crack- and you can actually watch as it does- any globs or brush strokes just disappear. I think it looks cool, and the Princess can't wait to show it off to her little friends at school tomorrow!

Now I'm off to do my nails!

I read the title of your post and thought "why would someone blog about nails" in pound in the wall and build stuff nails. LOL - obviously I've been doing one too many home improvement projects lately.

By the way, love the nail colors :-)
