For a first attempt, I'd say that the crackle nail effect worked quite well although I believe there is a certain knack to it and, of course, practise makes perfect. From this one attempt I think it works better if you add a thin layer of the crackle polish as it is more prone to cracking that way. As you can see from the picture above, I used three other polishes alongside it, all of which I'm very fond of and use religiously. Never underestimate the importance of a base coat to protect your nails and prevent discolouring, and a top coat to avoid chipping!
So there you have it - an evening watching The Snowman and painting my nails. Living the student dream!
