Kelier Cracking Nail Polish


I got some stuff from Born Pretty online store for review and this is the first post in line. One of the products I got is this cracking nail polish. I've never heard of Kelier brand/polish before, but it sure looks interesting.



Here's what it looks like layered over China Glaze Snow from the Holiday 2010 collection.



There's one thing I have to mention about this polish: you have to apply it while the bottom/base polish is still wet. I like the fact you don't have to apply an extra thin layer to get a nice cracking effect. This one is really easy to work with. And one more thing - applying top coat is a must. Otherwise you might end up with chipped cracking effect. ;)

You can get your bottle of Kelier cracking polish (in 7 different shades) in Born Pretty online store for $4.08.

*Product was sent to me by Born Pretty. Read my disclosure policy for more information.

What do you think about this effect? Would you wear it?

Thanks for looking!

  1. I really like these "old school" crackle polishes! It kinda looks like you've pulled the ends of the polish or something :) cool!!

  5. I've never heard of Kelier, either. Looks like their crackle effect is very delicate.

    I have worn crackle polish before, so yes, I'd wear this. :)

  6. I am not really into crakle polishes, but this one actually has a nice effect! I like the fine craked lines because it reminds me of chipping paint instead of cracked skin like the others do... ( yeah i'm crazy...i know...)

  7. Ooh I have this same black Kelier crackle polish. That tips you gave is very true. Base has to be a little wet and a top coat is a must. Even with top coat I get chips, but I wash my hands way too much.

  8. I have this polish, and yes, you have to apply it while base still wet. I almost tossed mine in the garbage after I used it on top of Seche Vite, because it started to fall of in pieces, wouldn't stick to Seche, because it dried too fast (of course, that's why we like it).
    But nice crackle effect...

  10. You have the nices effect with the crackle polish that I've seen. Never heard of this brand. Your a good advertisement for it. I would definitely wear it.

  11. I have this one, and it was extremely hard to remove. Harder than glitters! While I've not heard of others having the same issue, it's been issue enough for me to put it away lol. I prefer the newer crackles, even though this is different, I dislike the way it makes micro crackles in the sides. Doesn't look great up close IMO.

  12. @Yona: I *do* like it! =) It's easy to work with and it gives a great effect. As Jette Fromm said, it's quite hard to remove, but it's worth it.

  13. Prekrasno! Meni je tale tudi bolj všeč kot Barry M in podobnih. :) Zgleda kot popokana zemlja, ki komaj čaka na vodo. xD

  14. Ha! No to pa je lep cracle lak... Ostali so mi OBUPNI, ta se pa ravno prav skrči!

  15. This looks so cool! I like this a lot better than the "stripy" crackle effect you get from f.ex. Isadora. :)
