You could already see Essence Crack Me! nail polish shades on my blog and I'm showing you another one from the same line today although it's a bit different this time. This one contains glitter!
Essence, Crack Me!, Pearly Pink, 1 coat (over Mahnattan Lotus Effect W65)
I imagined this would look good over my new Manhattan Lotus Effect nail polish in W65 and it does, but the cracks aren't really visible here. Even I couldn't tell if it cracked or not... P.S: It DOES crack though. Choosing contrasting colors when using crackle nail polish is the key, right? Still, I like the way this manicure turned out. I can't say if I like it better with or without top coat (below with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer).
I really wanted to like Pearly Pink - not only because I don't wear pink often, but also because it's a nice change of pace to see a glittery crackle. I do like it like this, over darker purple, but I'm not too crazy about it when worn over lighter shade. For a crackle polish which needs to be applied in one coat, it's too thin and not opaque enough. I'd also like the glitter to be more dense.
