Barry M Gold Foil and croc nail effects

Gold Foil is a golden foil polish. It's super opaque and really good for stamping. Actually that's the main reason I wanted this one in my stash. I haven't used it as much but I have some plans for it. mostly for stamping.
It's opaque with one coat but I used two coats for these pictures to smooth it out.

Croc Nail Effects is a black crackle. Unlike most crackles it has a glossy finish and it's cracks are spreading in various ways, what helps to create this croc like look. Another thing that's different about this one is that it takes about 2-3 minutes to complete the crackle effect, which was really surprising as for most regular crackles it takes much faster and the process begins when you apply it on the nail. I used one generous coat on top of the Gold Foil to create this look. The cracks will appear more delicate if you apply a thin coat of the Croc Nail Effect polish.

  1. הזהב מעולה לחותמות! זו הסיבה שקניתי אותו ולא התאכזבתי, עושה את עבודתו נאמנה. דווקא כלק בפני עצמו אני פחות מתלהבת מהגוון; יש לי זהובים מוצלחים ממנו.

    1. מסכימה, גם אני ואני מרוצה. הגוון של קר מדי לטעמי וקשה לי להאמין שאני אשים אותו על ציפורן שלמה כך סתם.
      אגב יצא לי לנסות את No place like chrome של ESSIE אתמול לחותמות והוא היה נהדר!
