[Oh] Snap, Crackle [Paint], Pop [of color]!

Did you know that crackle nail polish was actually an old school nail trend? This time last year, one vintage bottle of crackle nail polish would’ve cost you at least $15 bucks on eBay!

I bought my crackle from Wal-Mart for $2.98, that’s what I call a bargain!
Check out Wal-Mart for Salon Perfect Crackle Nail Lacquer in Cracked Berry, can’t beat the price. They have other colors available as well and even some metallic colors, perfect for upcoming holiday parties!

I layered my crackle over Sally Hansen Hard as Nails: Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac {#270}, I purchased this from Target for $3.99.

I know what you’re thinking, isn’t lilac a spring color? You’re absolutely right, pastels are usually spring colors BUT the dark and rich layer of crackle gives it an edgy, fun, fall look. Purple is always an in color for the fall and winter months! 

What’s your opinion on crackle nail polish? Hot or Not? 

Email me some pictures of your fave crackle combos and I’ll put them on a future post!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

PS: Happy birthday to Davina! This post is dedicated to you! Us nail polish junkies have to stick together! :)


  1. I think I am going to do a crackle polish before the month is over, maybe an orange and black for Halloween!

  2. Send me a picture if you do! I'll post it on here! :)

  3. Avon also now carries crackle nail polish and you can order from
    I love the purple/lilac combination Marissa

  4. That combo looks really good together. I love Crackle nail polish but I haven't seen it at my WalMart. I'll have to check again. Plus, I haven't been able to find any exciting colors.

  5. I have my nails painted with crackle too! I just have white and gold though. I haven't been able to find any bright colored crackle, it is always sold out.

  6. I bought the fuschia crackle yesterday at Target. They actually had A LOT of colors! I am using the fuschia and hot pink.It turned out okay, but I don't think I'm applying it correctly. You should post a tutorial! haha.

  7. Love the nails!
