this NOTD was actually done back in the first week of February... with all the craze about the new crackle polishes from China Glaze I hope it's not too late to post this....

Seche Base Ridge Filling Base Coat
O.P.I. Teenage Dream
O.P.I. Black Shatter
Seche Vite Top Coat

from the Katy Perry Collection 
isn't it pretty in the bottle too??
2 coats of Teenage Dream 
3 coats of Teenage Dream 
up close 
1 coat Black Shatter
I think I like it without top coat, it has that rugged look to it... like it's very unpolished... if that makes sense 
after applying Seche Vite 
right hand 

I think the Teenage Dream is already pretty by itself but the Black Shatter does give it a mysterious effect with the Teenage Dream just barely peeking through the cracks... I love it but it's a pain in the bumbum to remove... you need loads & loads of cotton balls & nail polish remover & about 10 hours of your time... anyhoo, I think it's all worth it, I got a lot of compliments on it & people ask me what it is & where I got it from....

do you guys have any of the nail polishes from this collection?? which one is your favorite to put under the Black Shatter???


  1. It's sooo pretty!! I want teenage dream!!!

  2. Awesome mani! Teenage Dream is so pretty! I don't have any of these polishes. But I did manage to pick up China Glaze's black crackle polish.

  3. I love the combination :-) It is never too late for something so pretty!

  4. oooooh just got that crackly nail effect polish from barry m and i'm SO excited at the possibilities :)

    Xisses, Onyxsta

  5. Normally I don't like crackle polish, but I love the way you did your mani! :)


I love reading your comments... so please, type away! =)
