My New Barry M's with...yep more Crackle!!

So I received some Barry M polishes in my swap, and I have never used this brand before so I was so excited! I wish these were available in the US, but thanks to a new friend, Suzanne, I have my first 3! The third is the Barry M crackle, and I will be playing with that later on in the week. For this I started with Barry M, Cyan Blue. The formula on this was perfect!



Then I added Barry M, Silver Sea. I love this, it is very sheer, but has such pretty silver glitter bits in it!!


then because I just wanted to play, I added China Glaze Crushed Candy over top, but I didn't add a coat of SV.




















Okay I promise to give you all a Crackle break after this, lol. I received my 2nd swap package and it contained some more amazing pretties that I can't wait to share with you all!!

  8. I love Barry M nail polish. There are so many colours to choose from and they always apply really well. They're really cheap too!
    Excited to see more crackle polish, I just got mine in the mail yeterday so I'm yet to play around with them!

  9. When you were playing around with your nails did any of your crackles change to the color under them!? My white did that over a neon teal I had on yesterday-- not sure if it was because I didn't put a topcoat over the teal or what..

  17. I love Cyan Blue on you as well as Silver Sea, how gorgeous! I wish the crackle had left bigger gaps to let more of that blue show through!

  18. By luck I was able to get 4 of the China Glaze Crackles. I was in Ulta and they were all sold out after just getting a shipment yesterday. I went over to Sally beauty just for a shot and the lady said they just put them out today. I grabbed all but the Black (Because I have the OPI shatter) and the Purple (just didn't see myself using that one). I'm so excited and can't wait to try them!

  23. Haha nope, wasn't me unfortunately (I'm up here in NY lol). This store actually had them out on display next to all the other polishes -not sure why they thought they would last long enough to keep out a full display :)

    And thank you for fueling my new obsession with polish haha.

  27. I actually did a mani almost identical to this one on my blog too! That is so funny... proof that great minds think alike! ;o)

  28. I bought my first cracks polish the other day in a shade very similar to this and I put it over my pearly white pedi (revlon pure pearl) and it looked pretty amazing!

  29. PS... I don't know if all crackle polishes work the same but I did notice a thicker layer produced a large crackle pattern and a thin layer made a more fine crackle pattern! I love this stuff now!
