Nails Inc: Swiss Cottage +Striping Tape Crackle! +Nail Mail

You guys!!! I'm so excited. Big nail day. lol Okay, so we're starting off with three coats of Swiss Cottage. It was a bit sheer, but dried quickly so three coats wasn't really an issue.

Yes, another green-gold duochrome. This one does have some blue that you can see at the edges in the close-up.

Love it.

Then, last night between gin layering crackle over texture and all of the talk on Polish-aholics Anonymous about striping tape; I had this idea to try combining crackle with striping tape. The result? Genius!

I will be trying this again with cream polish and metallic crackle. I bet that looks even cooler!

I do wish I could have found my bottle of Cracked Coal. I'm not sure if it was just the crackle effect, or had something to do with the "color change" effect from DJ Spinner, but there is a silver line where the striping tape was, and crazy green around the edges of the black.

Still pretty awesome and super excited that the crackle didn't dry too fast for me to get the tape off.

Nail Mail!!! Storenvy is going to be the end of me... LOL

Essence Blue Ray, Nfu Oh GS14 and Orly Lunar Eclipse. So much loveliness.

Tomorrow we're venturing back into texture with Sand Dolla Make You Holla. I think it's similar to the wet-sand texture in Teal The Tide Turns. Very exciting. Alrighty, time to post this before it's tomorrow and try to catch up on emails and such. Hope everyone is having a great week. Take care! (^_^)"/"
