Here's the base: Seafoam Green mood polish by Nubar. Not so dazzling by itself... Just when I've gotten rid of the stains on my nails and I'm happy to have healthy "nude" color I go and put this over them! I've worn it once before - almost a year to date, here. My son said: "Mom, how quickly can you take off that color...". I initially planned to "plant" some flowers over it but decided to cover it up to the max after his words LOL
So here's the Kelier crackle effect. I applied it fairly soon after the third coat of Seafoam green.
The index finger with 3 quick vertical strokes, the middle finger after 2 curvy strokes (and touch ups on the sides), ringfinger with two generous vertical strokes and finally the pinky with 3 strokes that I painted like J (starting from the bottom, curving down and then upwards).
I like the middle finger best: it resembles a lightning most of all these. The others are more like plaids. I smoothed the surface with 2 generous coats of Rimmel Max Wear topcoat.
I like the effect but on my length of nails I think I prefer the french tip -crackle. This is a bit too dark overall look, especially for springtime...
For the start of May I'll change up to something brighter. I have some new nail art stuff to play with.. :)
Have a great start for your weekend!
