MUA Nail Quake in Shiver over Nail It! nail polish in Whoa Nelly.

July 25, 2012

If you read this blog you will see that I got an MUA haul yesterday. There was a promo where you could get one of these nail polishes free with your online purchase. I am not a fan of crackle nail polishes, and have never bought one in the past, but I thought this was a great way to try something new. You get to pick your own colour, so I decided to go for the pink because I thought it would make a more subtle and wearable crackle effect. So this is the Nail Quake in Shiver, and I decided to put it over the top of Whoa Nelly Nail It! nail polish from Sportsgirl.

This is Whoa Nelly on its own (two coats)

Nail Quake time...

After only a few seconds the nail polish starts to crack

The final effect

I'm still not a fan of this. I thought that by using a less contrasting colour it may not look so bad, but I think by using the orange it makes it look like I have really gross ridges in my nails. I must admit, I really like the pink over the orange, its gives a nice neon colour, but I'm definitely not sold on this look. I might try it with purple underneath next time.

Have you ever tried these crackle nail polishes, or do you have any suggestions on what I can pair this pink with?


  1. I've actually never tried these crackle polishes myself. Like yourself, I've never been completely won over by them.

    Perhaps you could try an aqua underneath. Aqua and coral pinks often go quite nicely together.

    1. Good suggestion, I'm also thinking of painting it from side to side rather than up and down, so the cracking is horizontal!

  2. I agree, crackle just seems tacky. Although, this colour combination seems "passable" :)

    1. I am determined to make it work :P

  3. I love the MUA crackle nail polish. I tried the Barry M range but find these much better! Check out my review of them here if you would like :)
