Crackle polish is all the rage right now and it’s no wonder because it looks fabulous! The crackle polish is placed over your regular dry nail polish and as it dries, you can see it crackle! Each nail is unique and depending on the pressure and how much polish you put on will give you different results.

Watch this great video from OPI to see the crackle polish and Katy Perry’s line of colors in action! Super fab!

Someone who really knows how to rock a manicure is Katy Perry! She is well known for her creative nail art. Most recently she sported a Mani with photos of her current beau as the art. She even has her own line of OPI polish named after some of her best songs.

  • Teenage Dream – a dreamy pink glitter
  • Not Like the Movies – sultry silver
  • Last Friday Night – fierce glittery blue
  • The One That Got Away – an amazing deep berry

    The star of the collection is Black Shatter, the new top coat that creates a cracked/leopard once you’ve applied it over your dried nail polish. I absolutely ADORE that fuchsia crackle!!

The most common look is the black crackle over colored polish but crackle nail polish comes in lots of colors! I especially am digging the silver on red but then again, I am a sucker for sparkles and red.

There are tons of colored crackle polishes that you can mix and match with your regular polish. I’m especially digging this blue/red combo! Unexpected and fabulous!

Switch the boring crackle up with some glitter polish and white crackle on top! This look would be simply wonderful for a holiday party or for NYE! I also really love the fact that they did two nails blue with gold and the other three gold with white. Very classy!
