Review - Sally Hansen Crackle Nail Polish

Create a unique crackle effect on your nails.

I love that Sally Hansen is always coming out with new products that are always affordable. One of their newest innovations is called Crackle overcoat. What is crackle exactly? Well, its a layer that goes over your polish that creates a shattered or broken effect.
I have the Cherry Smash which is a bright red. I used it with a metallic gold polish beneath. The gold was beautifully peeking out from underneath the red. Everyone loved my nails and asked me what I was wearing.
I actually love this polish and plan on getting more colors. This is a good way to break up the monotony of regular nail polish colors.
One great thing about this that is a huge plus for me, is that it dries super fast! It dries to a matte finish, so make sure you put a top coat.

Melissa says: I tried Distressed Denim and had a lot of fun with it. I chose a pink base so after applying the Crackle overcoat, I got a nice 1980's feel. The key to using this is practice and patience. Since you have no idea where polish will crack, you just have to experiment. The only thing that was different was that the brush is very thin and the overcoat does not go on a smooth as a regular nail polish. Once you get used to it, you'll love it. I got a lot of compliments and it was a good refresher to my solid nail color. Next up is a neon base, because I'm still going for that 80s feel!

How does it compare to OPI's crackle?

I tried the Sally Hansen brand of crackle polish and was disappointed that it wasn't anywhere near the quality of China Glaze's crackle polish.
