Cracking Sparkles!

Hi All!

Almost 2012! I'm not really excited about it. It is kinda just number i'll screw up for the next month. Other then at its just another day. I don't try to change things I hate about me on January 1st. I don't see it as this magical day that will finally change my life! And a month later making excuses why That Magical Day didn't work for me! If I was gonna pick a day for a new beginning it would be my birthday! You know the day it all actually began for me!

So the pottery wheel! Was fun, was messy, was evil!  HA out of a block of clay we made nothing but mud! It was a Pretty pretty messy mud! It takes practice. And the kids wheel only has one speed which is really to fast for a kid learning. So he would build it up, get the mouth open and deep. Then he would start working on the sides and it would crack. hehe and start over. We did this till there was not much clay left! But plenty of mud. He looked like a clay figure himself by the time we were done. Maybe the next block will be better!

Today, I have a Green Crackle from Pastel -704 that I got from the awesome Esra . I know a lot of people are over the Crackle thing. Not me I love it. I love finding different pretty ways to wear it. 
So I really like Crackle over just a clear base coat! But this time I used Wet n Wild - Kaleidoscope as a thin one coat for the base. It was a bit textured from the glitter. I was thinking how would crackle work on an non smooth surface. So I put a clear coat on all my nails but my ring finger. Leaving it with the glitter texture. Then added a nice thick coat of the crackle. Which was very easy with this formula of crackle!

So in The fist set of pictures I have no top coat on. Excuse the mess! I wanted to show how you can still see the nail with a nice hint of glitter between the cracks. This crackle cracked really well. But you can see on the ring finger how the crackle didn't work so well.  It did crack but not as well with the smooth nails. It was worth the try thou. The second set of pictures have a top coat and it do brings the nails to life and the glitter sparkles so pretty! It was hard to catch with my camera and the sun not being its normal happy self. But I really love this look! I hope you all like it!
