Crackle Glaze: Jade-D

I got a three Glitter crackles by China Glaze at TJ Maxx, here is the first:

Jade-D is a light yellow small glitter in a clear base. Here it is over Orly Liquid Vinel. 

I was pretty disappointed in it's crackling... did I do something wrong? I saw other people online and it seemed to work fine for them, I used it just like any other crackle.

The color combo is nice for the season.

Drug Store Glitterball

So I'm going to post when I post :) I just don't have the time or sun to be like the amazing women who post every day.

That being said:

This is Maybelline Color Show Styled Out, a navy blue with a silver shimmer/microglitter. It's part of a Denim's collection, and especially because it dries semi-matte. Scrangie has a beautiful (as always) swatch of it on its own.

I then added 3 (yes 3!) coats of NYC Starry Silver Glitter. This 99 cent polish (love!!!) is small silver holographic glitter in a clear base with lots of larger blue and pink hexagon glitter.

It's not an optical illusion friends, I'm back! (maybe). Now for the excuses: The biggest thing is I started a new job and I'm exhausted. Bigger than that it is mostly dark when I leave in the morning and mostly dark when I come home at night. I'm having trouble taking good pictures. I haven't stopped doing my nails though!

My job is also a little rough on my nails. I type away all day, so please excuse the tip wear you are going to see!

With all that said... here are my nails:

This is China Glaze First Mate (a personal favorite, an easy 2-coater, and such a rich color!) with Orly Luxe stamped anchors from plate SH09. I then stamped China Glaze Blue Iguana. Over the whole thing.

I absolutely adore how this turned out!!

Eek thump tip wear!

I think the ring finger is my favorite.
