I decided to use Nails Inc Culford Gardens as my base colour, because it's bright and gorgeous.
Once this base colour was touch dry I applied a coat of the croc effect in as thin a layer as I could. You can see where some nails have a thicker coat than others so I could use a bit more practice, but overall I'm happy with the result. It's much neater than crackle and I can see how you could apply more or less for different results. I also like that it dries with a shine (which of course I increased with Seche Vite) It's very different from crackle in that it takes about three minutes for the effect to develop - you see nothing happening for quite some time! I look forward to trying it with different base colours.
What I used:
- Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle basecoat
- Nails Inc Culford Gardens (2 coats)
- Barry M Croc Effect in Black
- Seche Vite topcoat
