This is Halloween Nail Art Challenge: Recreate

Happy Halloween!  Today is the last day of my first nail art challenge!  I made it through, and I am proud of myself for it.  I don't think I will be doing a Christmas challenge though, maybe in the spring I will take a chomp at one again.

Todays challenge is to recreate a look from another challenge, since this is my first challenge I dont have any to recreate.  So, I decided to do a crackle manicure!  I know, crackle is old news, but I have never used it before.  I am signed up for the Julep Maven monthly box and recently I recieved a Julep crackle by the name of "Sabrina".  I have not been able to use it during the challenge, so I decided to use it today!  I have never been that attracted to crackles, but I really like this one.  I used China Glaze "Stone Cold" as my base.  I used one coat because it is so opaque, which is great.  I then applied one coat of Julep "Sabrina" over it, and viola!

China Glaze "Stone Cold".  I really love it byitself too!

Crackle looks good!

I really tried to go for a clean manicure with this one.

Artsy shot!


  1. Pretty crackle effect! I like the "Stone Cold" base color, too!

  2. The crackle looks great! I like the combo of the silver and orange/gold. It looks fiery!
