Nails inc cracks it

Crackle nail varnishes have been a huge trend this year – it’s easy to see why, nails that have the WOW factor and a look that is super easy to achieve at home.

For anyone not already familiar with it, crackle polish creates a crackle / shatter effect letting any other colour underneath it show through. Each nail is individual and painting the crackle polish on in different ways, strokes and directions can also vary the look.

Nails inc has just launched a range of new colours and finishes in its Special Effects Crackle range, including a gold glitter crackle top coat which is amazing. The range is now available in a myriad of colours, we love the pink ‘Islington’ and ‘Hoxton’ (dark purple) – the coloured shades are easier to wear that the original black crackle and look much more summery too.

Visit the nails inc bars in House of Fraser or Harvey Nichols to find out more and check out the new shades.

And here’s some top tips for acheiving the perfect crackle finish at gome from the lovely people at Nails Inc:

  1. Apply 1 coat of your favourite nails inc base coat
  2. Apply 2 coats of your favourite nails inc polish. Leave to dry for 5 minutes
  3. Apply 1 coat of your chosen crackle shade. Have fun with this – try painting in different directions as this will affect how your design will look. 
  4. Wait and see your nail polish appear through the cracks!
  5. Apply a top coat to get a glossy finish
  6. Marvel at the amazing nail art design you have created with such minimal effort!
