I have 3 bottles of crackle to show all of you here today, one of them the Black crackle and 2 others are shimmery burgundy and ash brown.
Mei Mei Signature's is the name of the brand and the owner is Mei Mei :)
This is the burgundy over Zoya's Harley.
I have to top it with a top coat, I used Seche Vite, on order for the shimmer to be seen :)
Application is fuss-free. The polish is pretty watery compared to the normal kinds, so layer it on your DRIED manicure quick and watch the crackle in action. Pretty fun, actually.
I showed my daddy and he was pretty amused :P
This one is to show the black crackle. It dries matte and I added topcoat for a glossy shine.
It was done in a rush.
If you see the blue layer, it's from another kind of crackle that I owned...
I did a fatal mistake by applying quick dry topcoat on the crackle, forcing the gaps to minimize further, looking like... hairline cracks :/ UGLY!
This is the ash brown crackle. There is also a very pretty shimmer that I might not have captured well.
Half the nail is without topcoat hence the suede/matte feel.
This could be clearer :) Tried on a glitter base. You can see that the edges of the crackle are messier.
Here's all three on my swatch nail wheel.
I also tried a manicure with the burgundy one. It is hard to capture glitters in photos so imagine them looking glossy and shiny :)
The crackles retail at SGD15 a piece on http://meimeisignatures.com/
There are more colours to choose from!
They are all big-3 free! Hooray for that ;)
She has also shown how the crackle effect can be more varied if you apply it a zig-zag motion!
