Pink Wednesday ~ Finger Paints Pink Imagination & ChG Latticed Lilac

With my reduction in polish purchases, I'm wondering how many more Pink Wednesdays I'll be able to do... we'll see how it goes. Today for Pink Wednesday I'm wearing Finger Paints Pink Imagination. I grabbed this shade on a whim a few months ago from Sallys because I needed to add another Finger Paints polish to my purchase for an additional discount. Pink Imagination was sitting right there on the counter on a display for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation. My mom is a two time survivor, so I always grab items where proceeds benefit this awesome foundation. Pink Imagination is an adorable light pink that is full of silver shimmer. The formula was awesome! I'm not sure why it took me so long to try this brand, but I'm glad I finally did. Three coats were used for full opacity.

I love how soft and girly this color is. I wanted to switch things up and add some stamping to this mani...FAIL. I guess I just don't practice stamping often enough to improve my skills. Welp...when all else fails, I can rely on some crackle to switch things up. I used China Glaze Latticed Lilac as accents on my ring fingers and thumbs. One thin coat was used.

Love this! Crackles never let me down...well at least not often...lol. It looks so nice and subtle. I can't wait to try this with other base colors.
What are you wearing today??? Tired of crackles/shatters yet???

Yeah, I am way tired of the crackles & shatters - was not enamored with at the start of them either - so have had enough. Oddly I see them in blogs but not on folks walking around. And teens, well for the most part, don't see them wearing it unless they have picked away at it and it's all chipped off. So yes, I won't be sad to see this trend fad SOON. However, think it will be here another year.

Nope I'm not tired of the crack yet. You know once you go crack you keep on cracking. Lol! (I know that was corny) I tried using my OPI Turquoise Shatter it didn't crack to well. How is it for you? :)

Thanks for your comments ladies! I tend to only use the crackles for accents so the look isnt so overpowering...but they do help when fix up a bad polish job which is a plus for me.
@rmcandlelight...lol @ once you go crack! I have the turquoise and it has been hit or miss. The last time I used it, it didn't shatter at all. I've mainly used it over dry polish and it has worked for me.
