Well, I really thought it would never happen. I have watched the crackle polish revolution going on in the nail polish community and felt so far removed from it all. Here in my impregnable crack-free fortress I was merrily going about my nail polishing business and then BAM!
It sounds so silly, but I bought it because it had been sold out for weeks and weeks here in Aus, and around the world, and when I saw that lone little bottle of OPI Black Shatter sitting on the shelf the collector in me couldn't just walk past it.
Then I did a mani with it - this is over OPI Not Like the Movies:
And just like that...I was in love with the crack. For me, the reason I like it is that it is SO easy to do and the end result is like edgy nail art but without you having tried. Konading is fun, but I just couldn't be bothered sometimes, whereas this allows you to have something different without the effort. OPI is also bringing out a whole range of colours in their shatter polish, and China Glaze has a crackle line as well. All the other polish companies will be following suit soon, no doubt.
Its a bit of fun, and I have to say, don't knock it until you've tried it. The crack is the shizz.
