HMOTD 5 – Hallowed Croc

I don’t really think that crocodiles are very Halloween, I think that if I came across one in real life I would be scared! lol but this mani was really inspired by Halloween colors and me determined to master this pain in the ass croc crackle!

For this look, I used 1C “Essie – No Place like chrome” as underwear, 1C “Color Club – Lava Lamp” and 1C of “Barry M – Black Croc Crackle” This crackle is a little different from the regular, for one when it crackles it looks like crocodile skin, for another your nails have to be dry to the tough kind of tacky, they can’t be completely dry like regular crackle. For me, and maybe I am doing it wrong but I was having such a hard time, the crackle wasn’t drying right, didn’t look right, etc then Seche Vite when it dried mushed the colors together.. ugh! So I finally gave it another go today with these colors for a Halloween look. I used an “OPI” top coat and once it was dry, Seche Vite for extra protection and the colors didn’t bleed this time.

So I know that most of you are over the crackle-ness but what do you think of this one and this Halloween Mani of the day? 😀
