China Glaze - Black Mesh

I've got another Halloween themed mani to show you.  Your going to see more of these, because I'm having way too much fun.

Underneath.  Here's what it looked like before I added Black Mesh.
What's nice about this mani is that you don't have to be neat, just slap on some colors in an alternating pattern.  Then add Black Mesh and you can't tell that underneath its messy.... its probably better that is messy.

Here is what I used.  L to R, Gelous as a base, It's Alive, Burnished Bronze, Fall of Surprises, Santee purple glitter, Sinful Colors I Love You, ChG Black Mesh, Jelly Pop top coat.

Last year I did not get into the crackle craze.... kind of a shame because I'm really enjoying it!  Now I want to buy a bunch of crackle polishes on eBay now!  So silly!


  1. I love the manis that can be messy)))) This looks very impressive!

  2. Nice nails for Halloween!

  3. That doesn't even look like crackle to me. It looks like some kind of intricate design! Love all the colors you used underneath the crackle!

  4. So cool! I love how crackles can be used as an overlay over a pattern. Such a neat combination, and very fittingly Halloween-y!

  5. WOW! I love this manicure!!!! It's totally awesome! You did a fabulous job on it Jenni Lee! Thanks for sharing! ♥

  6. I have a longstanding love-hate relationship with crackle polish myself! im not sure if i love them or hate them but when i do feel a particular love or hate, i feel it strongly. there was a time, you wont catch me without crackled nails. i feel like, for people who cant grow nails, they are the nail art buddy of choice

    1. Me too, (love/hate thing). I think I had more fun watching the paint crack more than anything else! Thanks Kumi. I love short nails too!
