I wanted white underneath topped with CND Amethyst Sparkle so that the purple shimmer could show thru. Below is two coats of Amethyst Sparkle over top of CND Brilliant White.
Big hopes....Or so I thought. Unfortunately, Fault Line cracks in big chunky pieces so you don't see much of the base colour. Total waste of the expensive CND sparkle effect.
This is nail fail for me...not liking it at all. I mean, I guess it is OK but certainly wasn't close to what I was looking or hoping for. Took this off less than 24 hours later but not before fooling around with it a bit...
Here's my right hand stamped...there haven't been too many images out in the blogesphere with shatter/crackle stamped (at least not that I've come across) plus I wanted to try it for myself. The good thing is that crackle with a topcoat of SV is smooth enough to stamp over. This is stamped using Beautiful Scratchers white polish, fauxnad IP XL E.
And on my left hand, I added a coat of OPI Black Shatter. I was just fooling around ....but in some ways, I like it even better! I think the layering of crackles/shatters could have lots of possibility if the colours underneath are visible if the polishe crackles enough. I may try this again when OPI releases their new crackle shades as their polishes seem to shatter more!
I guess they all can't be successful...but none the less, a great opportunity to experiment so not all of a fail!
Thx for looking!
