Twinsie Tuesday - Crackle Manicure

Good morning, dear readers! :D

Today is Twinsie Tuesday!!

For today's theme, we were to wear a crackle polish.

The polish I chose for today was sent to me by the lovely Amanda of amandalandish.  A little while back she had a spring themed manicure contest, and I was one of the winners!! :D

Now for those of you who know me, I have been very back and forth about crackle polish.  When I was first introduced to it (I think in the late 90's), I thought it was a pretty bad-ass idea!

Then, when it came out again last year or so, I didn't like it as much.

Well!  When I got these Pure Ice Remix polishes in the mail and tried them on, it was love! :D  I seriously adore these Pure Ice polishes!!!  I got the turquoise-y pair, and when I put the black over the white, it was faint, but pretty.  :)  Then, when I put topcoat over it, it magically transformed and made the turquoise colouring even more deep and beautiful!! :D

Here it is:

I added little red hearts with acrylic paint.  :D
