The One With the Cracked Stone Looking Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  I apologize for not posting yesterday, but I have some awesome news....I finally edited the photos in all 7 posts that need to be posted, soooo I should have consistant posting for the next two weeks.  Hopefully.  All I have to do now is just write all the posts.  I feel like that is the easier part.  Maybe it isn't because as I'm writing this, I just went and watched YouTube videos for 20 minutes.

Anyways, today's manicure is inspired by this cracked stone look by NBNailArt on Instagram.  I fell in love with this design as soon as I saw it.  Bianka used a stamp to get her look, but I figured it would be something that I could freehand with some acrylics and a small nail art brush.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Zoya - Maria Luisa
  • Acrylic
Isn't it a neat looking manicure?  It is one of those where I couldn't stop looking at my nails.  I think I did a decent job re-creating the design without the stamp.  At first I thought that the black lines looked a bit like tree branches, so I started to give them more of a jagged look to represent the cracks.

Maria Luisa is one of my favorite polishes which I always forget that I own.  One coat and and you get this gorgeous gold foil looking flecks all on the nail.  Over the white, I did just did one coat and as you can see, it's pretty dense.  This polish always separates on me, but with one shake it's back to normal.  I think it's just because the flecks are heavier than the base?  I don't know the logistics of polish.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Something you'd try??

Until next time, <3.
