China Glaze - Cracked Concrete and Zoya - Pippa

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!

Today I'm sharing Zoya - Pippa and China Glaze - Cracked Concrete. I do love this combo, but next time I think I'll try a lighter yellow, like Sally Hansen - Yellow Kitty. I got more attention with this manicure than I have with any recent look. I think the contrasting colors make it really stand out, and of course the crackle effect is attention-grabbing.

Cracked Concrete is a really dark gray, and Pippa is a bright sunny yellow. It's definitely a warm-toned yellow. It goes on really smoothly in three coats, which is good for a yellow! Cracked Concrete crackled just as well as the other two CG Crackles I've shown you. I tried different techniques again this time, so I have some vertical cracking, some horizontal cracking and some diagonal cracking. I like variety!

The pictures show this look on day 3, so you can see a little bit of tip wear and some little chippies around the cuticle. But not bad for three days! I don't really want to take this manicure off, so I'll probably stretch it through tomorrow!

What are your weekend plans? I'm "guest bartending" at a local bar tomorrow night as a fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis. All tips will be donated. I'm really excited, as my mom, aunt, and other peeps will be bartending with me! My mom has MS, so the cause hits close to home. It should be a good time!

  1. Yellow and grey is my favorite color combo. They were almost my weddin colors!
