Throw back to when this nail trend was actually a thing...
I was going through some of my nail polish and came across this shatter top coat from OPI.
Honestly, I had all but forgotten about this whole shatter/crackle trend but I thought If was going to wear it, October was as good a time as any so here it is over top a plain black creme.
This isn't exactly my favourite nail look but I did love this trend for one particular reason.
Crackle is perfect to add on top of an older manicure that has seen better days! It was my favourite little trick for a time there. Whenever my polish was looking a bit chipped and ragged, I would quickly paint something like this on top and suddenly my worn and tired manicure, while still looking worn and tired, at least looked intentional.
Regardless, it's been a good long time since I've worn my nails like this. Don't mind it for a change, really.
