Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat

Hello! I found the Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoats at Walgreens yesterday, so I decided to do some quick swatches of the ones I picked up!

I chose Distressed Denim and Cherry Smash. I love the names! Very cute. The blue is a cobalt blue with sort of a jelly finish. Here, I'm showing you two coats of OPI Pirates of the Caribbean - Skull & Glossbones with one coat of Distressed Denim and one coat of Seche Vite. The blue crackled less than the red, but I still really like it!
Here's Cherry Smash, again shown over S&G with a coat of Seche Vite. I love this one! It's more cherry and less orange than it looks in the picture. It crackled really well!
And here's a quick experiment I did with both Crackles painted in different directions with Seche Vite on top. I don't know; I was just playing around!
So what do you think about these two? Are you over the crackle trend? I'm not! I love putting on some crackle to spice up a manicure I've been wearing for a couple days. Thanks for reading!


  1. I LOVE crackle but I like my opis a bit better. That orange/red is awesome though

  2. I like trying all the different crackles, I used the OPI black shatter recently, and I don't find it better or worse than the china glaze. I like the little cracks instead of the big breaks in the shatter. I dunno, just me, but I like the tone of the blue here.


Thanks for your comment!
