NOTW - LE CRACK NAILS FT CANMAKE CRACK LAC NAIL POLISH


Hey lovelies!!!

How's your week been so far? 

Work has been a drag for me this week and I am so glad Wednesday is over and 2 more days to the weekend! I have a gazillion things to cross up my to-do-list yet I have so little time. I really gotta reorganise everything - my time, my priorities, my life pretty much in general! I am also trying to get back to regular posting since I have HEAPS of backlogged posts that are yet to be posted. 

Anyways, enough of my random ramblings. 

I am back from my Singapore-Malaysia-trip for almost 3 weeks now (talk about how fast time flies aye) and my haul post is still "coming soon". But fret not dolls, it IS coming soon cos I have just finished watermarking those photos. I TRIED making a haul video but clearly failed big time cos it is extremely awkward trying to speak to the camera. Like seriously. So, I guess a haul post will do for now. =)


Here is just a preview of what I purchased from Singapore and Malaysia:



(As opposed to the usual all-products-in-one-picture-preview, I decided to be a little different this time by previewing the final result of using a couple of products from my haul =P)




LE CRACK NAILS!!!! 


I know it looks like it takes ALOT of effort to achieve this nails but honestly, it took me no more than 15 minutes for both hands. (Gotta thank my HG Dry Fast Top Coat by Seche Vite for that too!)



So, how did I achieve this?



STEP 1: APPLY TWO COATS OF YOUR FAVOURITE BARBIE PINK NAIL POLISH. 
I am using Rimmel's Lycra PRO Professional Finish in Urban Princess.

STEP 2: APPLY A GENEROUS LAYER OF CANMAKE CRACK LAC NAIL

I know CANMAKE is not a brand that you can find anywhere, especially in Australia or the States. Fret not, But do try looking around online and you might be able to find it. I know A Pop of Kawaii does carry a lot of Canmake stuff but I am pretty sure they haven't brought in the Crack Lac Nail series yet. But I will let you get guys know for sure when it does! :) 

Katy Perry for OPI collection does carry the Black Shatter Top Coat too but I am not sure when will it be released in Australia. :(  And unfortunately it only comes in black. So, if you are looking for colours, you should probably go for Canmake as they have 3-4 different colours in their Crack Lac Range. 


STEP 3: WAIT FOR 30 SECONDS - 1 MINUTE BEFORE APPLYING A LAYER OF DRY FAST TOP COAT. 
I used Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat




And VOILA!!!!


It is THAT simple :) People at work were amazed when I told them how easy it was to get these nails! :P 
And you don't have to use barbie pink as the base colour, any colour that tickles your fancy will do. :)


Let me know if you have tried something similar. :) I'd love to check it out!!

Just a quick question before I end this post, 


Does any of you have acne - prone skin? 
And for those of you who does, have you heard/ tried Proactiv products? 

I have a little something for one lucky reader of mine - more details in the next post. 


XOXO,
A

The OPI Black Shatter is available already (I have some swatches up on The Nail File). Bummer it only comes in black, because that blue looks AMAZING. Hopefully OPI will be releasing the crackle in a few different colours over the next year.
