Twinsie Tuesday: Crackle

Twinsie Tuesday yet again!  And for today, I present you with a crackle mani!


Despite my over-usage of the exclamation point, I believe I have yet again let my Twinsies down.  First and foremost, I'm rather meh about crackle.  It was interesting when I saw it at first, weird when I tried it at first, and now...just meh.  So in light of the meh-ness, I went white (Orly Au Champagne) and black (Pure Ice Strobe Light).


Fairly boring and to be honest, I should have stopped there.  But oh no, I had to get all glitterati   on myself and egged on by the peer pressure from my Twinsie cohorts (you know who you are, ahem, all of you), thought, "hmm...perhaps this needs some glitter!"  So on came Pure Ice Beware to bling my crackle mani out.


Ugh.  This looks like some sort of Oreo milkshake.  And since I'm lactose intolerant, I should've known to stay away.


Avert your eyes, dear readers!


I just don't like this.  Not one single iota of this photo works for me.  Even the name of my blog in the watermark annoys me simply because I'm attributing this manicure to myself.  Meh.  Did I mention meh?


Onwards and upwards!  To check out my lovely Twinsies' crackles, please click their links below.

  8. If this were a milkshake I would still probably drink it.

  9. Careful, or you may end up on one of those weird TLC shows next to the girl who drinks nail polish.

  10. Blue tastes the best! Unless the polish looks like a milkshake!

  12. I agree with everyone your hands are fantastic and the mani reminds me of a marble counter top, and I like marble counter tops, so umm yeah, I like. ;0)

  14. Aw, thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

  15. I tried a glitter coat over top of my crackle too!  Maybe we were just trying to hide it?!!

  16. You might have a point. I could have totally been subconsciously trying to sabotage the crackle. So not a fan.

  17. I think this turned out pretty cool!

  18. OK, I'll say it....it's not the best, but I am not a huge crackle fan either.  You do have beautiful hands as well! I do think it's different and I do like different!

  22. Now I want an Oreo milkshake! Also, did you ever believe you'd one day think, "Perhaps this needs some glitter"? ;)

  23. I think you are being too hard on yourself, I think this is just fine. I love that you went all glitterati with it too. I am now craving an oreo milkshake, and I too am lactose intolerant lol

  24. I think this turned out pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  25. No, never.  I should probably get a blood test for something in my system because I've gone really glitter high.
