I'm addicted to crack...

Hi guys, happy hump day! I woke up with some kind of cold this morning. I think it's karma from me telling my co-workers that I was the only one who had managed to not get the flu this year!  Or maybe this is just me only getting like 2 hours of sleep last night and my body punishing me for it...time will tell I guess!

Alright, so the other day I was over checking out a couple of my favorite beauty supplies to find a new bottle of Essie Chinchilly for the comparison post I put up the other day. While I was paying I noticed a display next to the register, the display was filled with some random brand of crack polish in a ton of colors! Most of the colors were the same as the Crackle collection China Glaze put out but there were a few unique ones. I ended up picking up two of them, the first one I decided to put on was the Hot Orange color. It is bright, like retina searing bright in the sun. I love it! I really liked the formula on this too, it was a lot easier to work with than the China Glaze Crackles were...I might even go pick up some of the colors that were dupey to the China Glaze ones. I don't know if you guys are gonna be able to get this near you since it literally has no brand name on it.

This is Hot Orange Crackle Polish over Essie Topless & Barefoot and Kisses & Bisses. No top coat

I was playing around with the thickness of the coat of crack polish I was putting on, that's why the cracking looks so much different on each nail! I like the middle nail the best, it looks like a neon orange cow pattern!

  13. Love this combination. I can't even buy the Crackle polish online. It's sold out at 4 of the websites I usually buy from. I'm sure they will come in eventually! I'd buy all of the crackle polishes.

  23. These are La Rosa crackle shatter polishes! My local nail salon sells them, and I picked one up in magenta! I think I like them better than OPI and China Glaze, to be honest!

  24. The brand is La Rosa :) I picked up the green one the other day because I was excited about finding a green crackle... I love it so much. I'll probably get a few more
