Easter Eggs Skittle

Are you guys (like me) soooo over all the crackle polishes that you don't even know why you got any of them in the first place? Don't know what to do with those crackle polishes any more? How about some very fun, easy and cute Easter nail art?

I painted each of my nails with different colors and then just added some China Glaze crackle called Crushed Candy on top. I used chevron nail vinyls to make the line look edgy, of course you can do it just with your free hand too. I was going for something like a broken eggshells look, and I think this turned out to be quite cute Easter manicure. It's not too obvious one, but still you can probably tell what it's all about.

We all got these same crackle polishes from our meet and honestly I was a bit afraid that I couldn't figure out any interesting way to use this since all my other crackles have just been sitting in my helmer and I haven't been using them at all. But the color of this crackle is pretty nice and at least in this manicure the crackle effect looks quite fun.

Index: Essie Go Ginza (two coats)
Middle: Zoya Neely (two coats)
Ring: L'Oreal Lemon Meringue (three coats)
Pinky: Essie Bond With Whomever (two coats)
(thumb is Zoya Blue)

I also wanted to say couple things about that beautiful light yellow L'Oreal Lemon Meringue that I also got from our meet. I have tried couple different light pastel yellows before but they all have been really difficult to apply, but this L'Oreal one was quite a pleasant surprise! I did have to use three coats, but they went on really easy and the wide brush made the applying so effortless. So now I finally have a nice light pastel yellow in my stash, yay!

Disclosure: I have gotten China Glaze Crushed Candy and L'Oreal Lemon Meringue from the goodie bag from our meet. Also I have gotten the other polishes that I used in this manicure originally for review. For more information view my disclosure policy.

Tänään vuorossa pikainen pääsiäismunamanikyyri. Miitistä saatu China Glazen crackle Crushed Candy pääsikin yllättäen melkolailla heti kynsille, kun keksin, että sillähän saisi aikaa hauskat pääsiäiskynnet. Pohjaväreinä tässä skittlessä toimivat Essien Go Ginza, Zoyan Neely, L'Orealin Lemon Meringue ja Essien Bond With Whomever (peukalossa Zoyan Blu).

Lakkauksessa käytetty L'Orealin haalean keltainen Lemon Meringue on myös miitistä saatu ja olen siitä varsin innoissani, sillä viimein kokoelmista löytyy vaalea keltainen, jota pystyy vaivoitta myös käyttämään! Lakkaa joutui toki laittamaan kolme kerrosta, mutta se levittyi ilman minkäänlaisia ongelmia ja lakan leveä suti teki levittämisestä todella vaivatonta.

  1. I love all your nail art :) This one is indeed very Eastery :) it's a shame that in Poland we have to shop online for most upmarket polishes :( I'd rather go to the store and see them on my own...

    1. Thank you so much Aleksandra! That's pretty much how it is in Finland too or at least here where I live. Sometimes it would be so much nicer to get to go to the store and see the polishes for real. :)

  4. Ihana idea käyttää cracklea vain osalle kynttä! Mulla on monta ihanaa väriä, joilla en jaksa enää värjätä kynsiä kokonaan. :)

    1. Kiitos! :) Koko kynnelle en ole itsekään näitä pitkiin aikoihin käyttänyt, mutta pienemmässä osassa toimii kivasti. :)

  5. I've never liked classic cracking TCs but I got a hot pink one 'cause I thought it could have been interesting to be used over a black. It's still untried in my helmer.
    Then I got a Crocolor by Mi-Ny (some sort of crocodile/turtle cracking pattern) 'cause I thought a regular pattern would have been more suitable to my eye. It's still untried. XD
    I must say, though, used this way I could give it a go...I just have to let my nails grow longer, there's not enough space ATM XD
    Very nice pastel manicure!

    1. Thank you! :) Oh, you should definately give it a go, it doesn't matter if you're nails aren't long enough, I think this could work for shorter nails too! Or maybe use those crackles in some other way in small parts on your nails (for example I've done this mani like that too: http://polishthis.blogspot.fi/2013/10/31dc13-day-8-metallic-nails.html). I think the crackles work best if you use them only in small sections.

    2. You're right, I do really like it that way! Thanks for the tip Annie ;-)
      I think I'll look for a colour combo, if the result will be kind of adequate maybe I can even consider to post it on the blog :D
