Okay firstly i want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has clicked on my blog. 80 views is just amazing, i didn't even think I'd get 1!! I have a few more idea's about reviews i'll do and i have many pictures of nail art i've done so stay tuned.
I went into superdrug the other day to but some hair dye and had a look at the Barry M as i absolutely love their nail polishes!! They're definitely in my top brands. They had a special offer on - buy any 2 products and get a web effect nail polish for free so of course as i was already buying 2 other nail polishes i took full advantage of the sale and picked up the free web effect. I already have 3 of the crackle effect nail polishes which i love, so i was really interested to see how it worked out. Here is the bottle for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.
I used a base coat of Barry M vivid purple as i couldn't find my black and i thought it would still look ok and give a Halloween type look with it. When you first put it on, the polish is actually quite thin and looks a bit peculiar as you can see the base coat underneath. However it is incredibly easy to apply!! It does take significantly longer then the crackle effect to begin to work so if nothing is happening do bare with it!!
This is what it looks like when it first goes on.
This is the final effect after waiting a few minutes
Admittedly the effect isn't how i imagined it to look, but if your someone who doesn't do nail art and wants an effect on their nails then i think you would love it. I personally haven't used the croc effect nail polish but having looked at swatches of them i think the effect is very similar. I think i could of done with putting a bit more on the effect nail polish on so the colour was more vibrant as it's such a lovely colour in the bottle. Or if i used a lighter base coat it might look better too. I think it's something I'll have to experiment with.
If anybody else has used it and had a different experience with it i'd love to know your opinions :)
