|Taken under artificial light as the light outside has gone out due to early sunset...colour's pretty accurate though. The supplies in the background are just my attempts at making my own polish.|
|(if you're wondering about the little bit of black near my cuticle, that was the Australis- I didn't take it off because my skin absolutely hates me right now for using the polish remover)|
Oh, and here's a tip; instead of using tape to prevent polish from sticking to where you don't want it to, use Vaseline instead, or the equivalent. For those who don't like, Vaseline is white petroleum jelly, good for dry skin and lips :)
On the other hand (pun intended), we still have the crackle and the Cutex, which is doing nicely in its third day of wear. No tip wear or anything!

I don't think I ever mentioned that I tried different directions with the crackle polish! Thumb is vertical (if you hold your hand straight up), index is diagonally to the right, middle diagonally to the left, ring is a mix of the two, and pinky is vertical (bottom half) and horizontal (top half). Personally I like the diagonals the best.
