Sponging & Crackling

Hi dear readers !

As I promised in my latest post, here's what I made over Essence I'm a Berliner.

I really loved this very easy to do nail art :) I'll try again with other shades, a purple gradient would be cute :)


Do you like this ? It's a sponge gradient with 2 different shades over the base, and black crackle over all. I'll explain you how to do at the end of this post :)
I used shades from Essence I Love Berlin LE 'cause they work really great together !



So, let's see how to do it ^^
I started by applying to coats of green using Essence I'm a Berliner.
Then I sponged unevenly over it with Essence Buddy Bear.
At this point, I don't clean my cuticles, sorry for the mess. When I do sponging, I prefer to clean the borders before I apply the top coat.


Then I applied some Essence Green Grass, still with a sponge. Now the borders are clean :)


Finally I added the crackle, here I used P2 in black. I really love how P2 crackles look, they might be of my favorites crackle polish ^^
I also added a top coat (Catrice Quick Dry High Shine) 'cause I don't really like how the crackle looks when it's matte.


Now I have China Glaze crackles in many shades, and that OPI is releasing a red and some gorgeous blues, I think I'll mix again sponging and crackling !

Did you like it ?

Have a nice day :)
