Black Crack..hehe

Black and silver is one of my favorite color combinations (OK let's face it black and anything is my favorite color combo, but for arguments sake for today it's black and silver). Even though this is a really simple mani, I absolutely love it! I actually did this quite a while ago, but looking at it now makes me want to have it on my nails again, right now! hah
The base color for this is Wet n' Wild Slivivor, and this color is insane! I swear it is slightly mirror-esque. Wet n' Wild in general has seriously stepped up their game. I have recently accumulated a decent amount of their eyeshadow pallets and they are (almost) all great! Super pigmented, and with primer lasts all day with little to no creasing. For the costs of these babies it's such an amazing steal! Can you guys tell I love makeup too? hah
...But I digress, back to nails.

If I remember correctly in order to get the Black Mesh to crack like this I had to shake the bottle really well in between painting each nail. I also think I did a relatively thick coat.

What I used:
Color:Wet n'Wild Slivivor
Crack: China Glaze Black Mesh
T/C: Seche Vite


  1. I love the black and silver and the way you got it to crack is awesome! I really want to try the black crackle... I've only used the Crushed Candy and Lightning Bolt since the black is ALWAYS sold out at Sally's. :o/

  2. Thanks! I think I really lucked out with the Black Mesh. I must have got to Sally's right when they got a shipment because I got it a few months ago, and semi freaked out in the middle of the store. hah It was actually Crushed Candy that I just recently found, because it was always sold out. You should try again, because I seem to be seeing more Crackle everywhere lately.

  3. cool blog. i am horrible with keeping my nails proper.

    i just came across your blog and i think its great. i hope you will come visit my blog and maybe we can follow each other.

  4. Thanks! Before I got into this whole nail polish addiction, my nails were a disaster too, and all I used was black. hah
