A Cat... and Cracked Tootsies!

Hope your week is just flying by :) Today I have a bright summer pedi to share, but first, Smokey...

I don't even remember how long ago it was that I look this picture of my cat Smokey, but she must have been outside while I was taking some photos for my blog. Look how cute! She is usually tough to photograph because she is so dark and always turns away from the camera. I think this is the best one I have of her, she looks so peaceful.

Anyways on to the polish. like the toe separators? I actually won them in a giveaway a while back. I took these pictures right after I finished applying the polish because I was so happy with the outcome right then and there and knew I had to take a picture even though they were still wet! I used Sephora by OPI, IM Beauty as the base. It is a basic cream yellow, nothing to special. Then I used Chain Glazes Broken Hearted crackle glaze on top.

I love the colour combo and really need to try this on my fingernails soon. It also wore very well, I think I have had this one on for a month now and it is just starting to chip, not bad at all :) The great thing about this look is when you start to get some wear you don't even notice because of the crackle!

I remember having some application issues with the IM Beauty, it it was so long ago now I don't remember how bad it actually was. It may also have been that I was applying it to my toes, and I hate getting in to awkward positions to paint my own toes. Since this lasted so long I got away with not having to do it in a while ;) Next time I will definitely get it professionally done :)

I think I am finally getting used to applying crackle, I need to do more manis with it. My favorite crackle look was on my big toe in the photo above.

What's your favorite colour of crackle polish?


  1. Oh, that's a cute summer combo!

  2. I remember seeing a blog that showed Broken Hearted over a yellow creme and my immediate thought was, "I have to do this!" All I need is the pink crackle. Lol. I LOVE the combination of colors! So bright and so happy!~

  3. Thanks ladies :)

    Lindsay - I felt the exact same way!! I didn't want the pink crackle originally, but once I saw some funky combos with it, I knew I had to have it :)

  4. I also hate painting my toes! I always have to get pedis professionally so my toes don't get changed too much, but I love the crackle look on toes!


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
