This Wet n Wild red was just too much for me. Essence comes to the rescue.
I figured out how to apply this Essence Crack Me polish so it cracks nicely. You shouldn't apply it in one long stroke along your nail, but rather in three shorter strokes (three in the middle and three on each side of the nail). I hope you get it, because I don't know how to explain it. =)
Wet n Wild, Everybody Loves Redmond, 2 coats + Essence, Crack Me! Black, 1 coat + Essence, Sealing Top Coat, 1 coat
I like it better with crackle. It tames the wild red color without covering it completely. Here's the close-up without top coat ...
... and with top coat.
