Shattered Nails are perfect for halloween

If you like crackle I have a couple of swatches here, and this one is a Lynderella with crackle that is one of my favorites for Halloween.  I made 3 crackle combinations today, I couldn't decide what combination was better, so I posted all three.  Let me know which one is your fave.  Oh yes and they have names them too.

---------------------------------------------------------

First up, is The Dark Queen, this reminds me of one of the Disney Villans, not sure why.




Layering Order:
Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
3 coats Color Club Alter Ego (let dry)
1 coat OPI Black Shatter
1 coat CND Effects Violet Shimmer
no topcoat in these pictures

---------------------------------------------------------

Next is The Obvious, made with the traditional halloween colors.




Layering Order:
Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
2 coats Wet n Wild Craze Inferno (let dry) 
1 coat OPI Black Shatter
no topcoat in these pictures

---------------------------------------------------------

Lastly is the The Spooky Pond, duo-chrome crackle? yes, it can be made.






Layering Order:
Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
1 coat Missha The Style JBL01
1 coat Zoya Adina (let dry)
1 coat OPI Black Shatter
1 coat of a mixture that is 25% Adina and 75% clear*
no topcoat in these pictures

*The easiest way to do this is to put 3 drops of top coat (I used Barielle Manicure Extender) on a plate and 1 drop of Zoya Adina, clean the Zoya brush and mix, polish 2 or 3 nails and start over.  You can mix 6:2 or any other ratio that yields 75% and 25% but if you pour too much on the plate you have to work fast because it might get goopy and dry.  Try it and have fun with it, think of this as a potion when you're mixing, afterall it's Halloween!
