Is Crackle Nail Polish All It's Cracked Up To Be?

I must admit, I am not the best when it comes to painting my nails.  Like most things in life...practice makes perfect.  I do try and keep my nails polished and looking nice.  I also try and teach the same to my 7, soon to be 8 *happy sigh* daughter.

Growing up I was horrible for biting my nails.  I think I did it more as a nervous habit than anything.  Finally as I reached my early 20's I got tired of the fake nails, the picked at look and I finally decided it was time to stop.  It's a little funny (perhaps a punishment of some sort), but one biting their nails is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.  Ironic, isn't it?

I have talked about Avon's new Mosaic Nail Wear Polish in a previous post.  I spoke a little about the history of cracked nail polish, why it is so popular and shared some pretty awesome savings Avon has for YOU.  You can read more about that HERE.

This time around I can share MY thoughts, MY feelings and exactly what I think of the NEW Mosaic Effects and Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel from Avon.  I bought (1) Mosaic Effects (613-537) and (1) Nailwear Pro Color (944-893) Lagoon.

I loved the color of the soft blue in the Lagoon.  I honestly wasn't sure if I would like it, but I was quickly proven wrong.  Here is how my nails turned out.

How to Get the Perfect Cracked Nail Finish Using Avon's Mosaic Effect Top Coat:

  1. Be sure your nails are clean.
  2. Paint your favorite color 1 or 2 coats and let dry completely.Tip:  I always use Avon's Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel for my daughter.  It literally take 30 seconds to dry. LOVE IT!!  All of Avon's Speed Dry+ is on sale for $2.99 and they have dome fabulous new colors!  
  3. Add one coat of Avon's Mosaic Effect and within seconds the crackle effect will occur and nails will instantly dry.
It is truly that simple.  I have done my fingernails plus my daughters and I was very pleased with the results.  I loved how you don't have to run out and buy several new colors.  You can use your own colors.  Avon's Mosaic Effects will work on any nail color, but I recommend using either Avon's Nailwear Pro Nail enamel for the best look every time or Avon's Speed Dry+  for that person that doesn't have time to waste.  The crackled finish is all in Avon's NEW Mosaic Effect Top Coat.  On sale Now for just $3.99 each.
