How to use:
Step 1: Prepare the natural nail. This is the most important part of applying nail polish, if the nails are not correctly prepared the polish will not have a silky smooth salon finish and may not last as long. Full instructions for this step can be found in the downloadable pdf below.
Step 2: Apply your chosen base colour. Full instructions for this step can be found in the downloadable pdf below.
Step 3: Applying crackle polish. Remove applicator brush from the black crackle nail polish and remove excess by wiping one side of the brush against the neck of the bottle.You will achieve different results by applying either a thin, medium or thick even layer of crackle polish over the nail.
Step 4: Starting at the centre of the nail leaving a 1mm gap away from the cuticle, brush the polish towards the free edge in one smooth motion. Immediately proceed with the sides of the nail in the same manner.
Step 5: It is important to leave Crackle polish to dry for at least 30 minutes allowing the crackle effect to develop.
Step 6: Once polish is dry apply an even layer of 2-in-1 Varnish or your favourite topcoat, remembering to cap the free edge.
