Hi, I’m Elise Wright. I’m here with celebrity manicurist Gerry Holford, and we’re going to show you how to create the effect of crackle nail polish without actually using crackle nail polish. Let’s start with the tools you need. You need basecoat and topcoat. You need your base color – today, we’re using silver. And, you need your top crackly color – we’re using a black striper. When your color is totally dry, you’re going to get your striper tool and start making small strokes across the nail. Use a mixture of lines and zigzags. The idea is to have your crackle look a little bit messy and haphazard, and you want your color underneath to flash through. When you’re happy with your crackle design, seal it all with a topcoat.
