My fiance (hubby as of next week, whaaaat?!) bought polish for me the other day. He may have stolen it, I don't really know, but it is now in my possession, which is far more important than the legal details. I never thought he'd buy me polish, so, for my super-duper, first, amazing, inaugural, stuuuupendous blog entry, I'm going to post a manicure using one of the Pure Ice colors he bought for me.
Pure Ice Spit Fire & Born Pretty's black crackle.
This was the first time I'd used Pure Ice and since it was a glitter, I can't really tell if the "apply-ability" (heh) is worth a damn, but it's pretty, pink and sparkly, so I don't really care anyway.
I also got to try the crackle polish I received from Born Pretty (www.bornprettystore.com). I'd heard some mixed reviews on it, but I loved it! The brush. I love the brush. It's wide which I find vitally important for crackles. It did take me 2 attempts to get it to crackle like I wanted. With other crackles, I use a thin layer to get it to look like it does in the picture, but with BP, I had to use a thicker layer.
Now I have to decide on a wedding day manicure. I was thinking shotguns and moonshine. If you can possibly think of anything better, feel free to leave a suggestion.
