In my ever expanding collection of nail varnish I only have 2 crackle varnishes, both from the Barry M range, those being black and gold. To be honest I haven't ever really put them to use so I thought to myself on a random afternoon that I'd do a little tester of which I prefer.
1. Models Own Coral Reef 2. Models Own Bubblegum 3. Models Own Fuzzy Peach 4. Barry M Pink Flamingo 5. ELF Teal 6. 17 Fairy Cake 7. 17 Parma Violet 8. Models Own Top Turquoise 9. Barry M Blue Moon
Each nail had been given one coat of coloured nail varnish then dried for around 10 minutes to ensure that the nail effects worked properly. I then applied one layer of the Gold Barry M nail effects onto one of each coloured nails.
I think my favourites from the gold crackle effect has got to be Barry M Pink Flamingo and ELF Teal, the golden effect seems to have worked best on these and not made the varnish underneath faint or dull either.
On the other nails I then applied a layer on the Black Barry M nail effects to see how this would turn out on each colour.
I think that the effect from the black is very different to the golden effect and I must admit that I do prefer the gold effect much better, as it seems more subtle and has taken better. With the black on some of the colours it has made it look a little dull, which isn't something that I'd go for on my nails.
Although, my favourites from the black effect has got to be Models Own Fuzzy Peach and Models Own Top Turquoise.
Do you like the crackle effect nail vanishes?
Which is your favourite brand/colour?
