Hi, We run the eBay Cosmetics store Waxed Factor and we get asked this question over and over so we decided to write this simple guide.
How To Apply Crackle Nail Polish.You need to mix in the oil within the nail polish for it to work, so shake and shake the bottle to mix.
The base coat must be dry - You need a base coat of plain nail varnish.
Please do not use a crackle base then another coat of crackle as this does not work.
Apply with long strokes from the base to the tip of the nail - Avoid brushing over the same part as this will remove the polish from the nail.
3 Simple steps...
1. PAINT THE BASE COAT.It can be any regular nail polish and will become the base and back colour.
2. PAINT CRACKLE COAT.
After the base coat becomes completely dry, simply paint on the crackle coat and the crackles should start to appear on the nail.
3. PAINT A TOP COAT.
It can be any regular top coat after the crackle coat gets dry. This will help to last the crackle effect and protect your nail.
Hope this has been of help and all goes well.
Kind regards, Kevin.
