A little pixie dust never hurt....

Orly's "Pixie Dust", so pretty, perfect on a cloudy day right?

Orly
"Pixie Dust" 3 coats














It's a sheer grey shimmer that leans blue, and is perfect on a cloudy day!















The first coat went on super sheer, but the 2nd coat started to build nicely, so by the 3rd coat it was perfect!

But what little sun I had, went away immediately.... so I decided to mimic the recent cloud cover, with a little added gloom!















1 coat of IsaDora Graffiti Top Coat...Love it!   You have to work fast with this top coat or it will look goopy...it dries fast.I decided not to add another top coat, i like the contrast between the matte black cracks and the shimmery polish underneath :)















Also, did I tell you that this IsaDora brush is awesome!!! Nice and wide, almost like the O.P.I. brush, and so easy to work with!

I like the color overall, *nods* suits a gloomy day in Ireland.

I love this color. And I love rainy days.. which is probably why I love this color. I really like what you did with the crackle polish as well.

I like the grey on it's own, but with the black crackle, it's perfect!

Thanks everyone! The good thing about crackle is that it also extends the wear of any manicure. :)

I am very happy OPI is finally making a crackle polish, bout damn time!!!

i love it :D if you quickly apply another coat of polish before it dried, there'll be larger cracks-

and I love the isadora brush too, makes it easier to paint

Pixie dust looks fabulous on you. I still haven't learned to appreciate the crackle aesthetic though :)
