Do you like crackle polish?
As you know last year was BOOM on crackle polish, driven by manufacturers but not by users at all, which made pretty a lot of polish-fanatics fed up of them…so do I. Crème-finish crackles, it wasn’t my taste, I don’t own any of shatters or crackle-glazes; but while I found some of so-called “pearl-finish crackle” in my local drug store, I felt like “Okay at least I should try them”, and…actually I might say I love this “pearl crackling” series from P2.

It says pearl, and yes it looks pearly when you end up the mani without any glossy-topcoat or what ever as below…


…but I like to finish by adding glossy topcoat because as soon as topcoat covered the crackle it BLINGS! It’s not “pearly” anymore but instead it looks very shimmery or even glittery! I love the way it crackles, as crackle-looking really depends on it’s formula (and this is another reason I don’t feel buying shutters), this one is perfect for me.


(L: with topcoat, R: without topcoat. My taste is left, but which do you like?)

Good finish, good formula, and what else? This also has very good price, 1.75 euro for 11 ml! It’s a bit small bottle but only one coat is needed and for sure it’s not for everyday-nail-painting, I think this is really enough. Blue thunder is my favorite, but I have others in my stash waiting for my next use. But anyway, good job P2!!
