I started with a base color of Sinful Colors Aquamarine, a nice bright blue. Then I layered Icing Bedazzled over it to give it some sparkle and crackle away. It's gorgeous! Seriously, I can't stop admiring this mani. On my ring finger I brushed the polish from side to side, rather than the traditional cuticle to tip stroke. The resulting look was a bit different, which I liked, but disliked that it made it hard to get the polish close the the sides of my nail. I liked the effect none the less.
I also really like that the formula for this crackle is a bit on the thick side. I like a thick coat so I end up with a big, fat crack as opposed to a fine crackle effect. The thick formula made it easy to achieve the look I wanted.
I don't think I could come up with a better color combination than this. I sure will try though.
