Crackle. It's Cool Now.

Oh yes. Crackle. It is cool. I don't care what you naysayers say. Crackle will always be awesome. It will never die, no matter how many "polish trends that were terrible" lists are published. 

Colors Used
Ciate Skinny Dip
Sally Hansen Black Crackle

The best part about this Ciate polish is how it glows in the light. I really do love it, though I don't know if I could bear to pay for it. This was a gift, and I do treasure it. Whenever I want a simple manicure that requires an orange, it is my first thought.

Because this glows, I think it makes my nails look like a lava flow. Not the actual lava flow. 

I think, as the holiday-to-end-all-holidays approaches, this would be a nice work manicure. It's orange and black, those are practically the official colors of Halloween! If your co-worker can wear those Christmas ornament ball/earrings for an entire month, I think you can wear this for a day or two.

this post has a new home!


  1. I LOVE me some crackle polish! I love the lave flow idea too! <3

  2. I feel like crackle gets such a bad rap! Paired with the perfect colors they can be so cool but like you said they're just as "fad" thing. Well I distinctly remember holos being a fad when Sally Hansen first came out with their Prisms line and that died out but then has come back with a firey fury, even with SH releasing the Magical nail makeup. Speaking of which I'm still mad at myself for getting rid of my first SH Prism years ago :'(

    1. Me too! There are so many polishes that I just tossed...that I could resell for so much now if I had known!

  3. Whenever I do a bad job applying nail polish, I always rely on crackle to cover up my mistakes :)

  4. Oh my goodness... that's an orange and I LOVE it! I'm normally all anti-orange... but that's a really pretty shade, and I love crackle, too. Definitely missed it when it was gone from the shelves...
