Layering NOTD: Nfu.Oh 119 over China Glaze Crushed Candy or if you are tired of Crackles and Shatters you might want to try this

Layering Nfu.Oh 119 blue jelly over China Glaze Crushed Candy Crackle Glaze

Welcome back everyone! :)
I don’t usually do two posts in one day but I couldn’t wait showing you this sandwich. 😀

Currently it feels like everyone is releasing Crackle nail polishes, Shatters or Fractures. Even though I do appreciate new colors like the soon to be released China Glaze Crackle Metals I am on a Crackle overload which is a shame because I do like Crackles (or Shatters or..) to spice up a day or two days old manicures. They give me even more possibilities to layer but with such a special effect it get’s boring when the same colors are released over and over again just because every brand likes to have a fraction (ha!) of the Crackle hype.

Then today I thought: why not make a sandwich with a Crackle with a jelly?
I am on a huge jelly kick lately thanks to Janice and her fab tumblr and her stunning and breathtaking jelly sandwich manicure featuring OPI Too Hot Pink To Hold ‘Em and OPI Teenage Dream. Since I saw this I love to layer glitter nail polishes between jellies.

Currently I am swatching the China Glaze Crackle Glaze nail polishes (not Crackle Metals) one by one over manicures I am already wearing a day or two. Swatching Crackles is no fun because you have to wait till the base nail polish is dry till you can apply the Crackle or it won’t crackle so I decided to wear them one by one. Yesterday evening I applied Crushed Candy – the For Audrey colored Crackle from China Glaze – over my Blue Iguana layering and I must say I really liked it but because of the Crackle overload most of us are suffering from I wanted to try something different today.

Luckily I just recently purchased a matching jelly with the dark blue Nfu.Oh 119 and gave the idea of a crackle/jelly sandwich a try today:

Crushed Candy was sent to me by China Glaze for review consideration.

Nfu.Oh 119 could already be a bit too dark and opaque but I just love how the Crackle looks under a jelly especially with a sparkly nail polish under both of them. I am looking forward to make more Crackle/jelly sandwiches with sheerer jellies like the OPI Texas Sorbets.

A fab subtle crackle/jelly layering is Sam’s Essie Lapis of Luxury/OPI White shatter layering.

How do you feel about the many Crackles, Shatters, Fractures etc which are available now? When I see new colors a bit of the excitement comes back but I do wish brands would rather jump on the holographic/prismatic and duochrome/multichrome bandwagons instead.

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥ :)

  1. Ooooh, this looks great! I love Nfu Oh 119 and I also have Crushed Candy so I’ll definitely be trying this look or a variation of it. :-)
