Here she is- One of the new Sally Hansen crackles. The blue one to be exact. Called Distressed Denim. Let's see how she does...

OK. Here are my thoughts. Not in love with the blue crackle. My whole reason for wanting a blue was to put it over orange polishes. I think the sheerness of this polish made for kind of a yucky combination over the orange. =0( Still looking for a great blue crackle.
Over the green and probably other blues, however, it's ok. Still sheer like I said, so if you overlap layers it will show, but it's a crackle- so the sheer factor is not that noticeable over the crackle effect.
I've heard some people complaining about the Sally Hansen crackles NOT CRACKLING. This has NOT been my experience. I have tried quite a few of them, and all of them crackle just fine given a few tips:
- SHAKE THE BOTTLE!!! ( yes I know, you're not supposed to shake polish. But in this case, just DO IT!
- Wait until your base polish is DRY!!!
The only time my SH Crackles did not crackle was when the base polish was not totally dry, or I did not shake the bottle first. So there ya have it. What is your favorite SH Crackle polish? ;)
