China Glaze Crackle Glaze Layering

A few of you suggested that I try layering the crackles over each other, and I was curious to see how it would turn out... So, I layered some more crackle glaze over my existing mani and I think it turned out pretty cool! Here's what I tried:

Broken Hearted over Crushed Candy over Essie French Affair. This one didn't seem to want to crackle as much over crackle, but it still looks pretty cool. The parts where the pink and blue layer over each other turned purple! I think I like it!

Cracked Concrete over Crushed Candy over Essie French Affair. I like this one better! It crackled more. I love the color combination. Know what it reminds me of? That weird 'abstract' 80's-90's corporate art with the weird geometric shapes and splatter paint patterns in teal and grey and peach... Know what I'm talking about? The type of generic art you find in offices and stuff? Sometimes there's a palm tree, but usually funky boomerang shapes and triangles...

Sorry about the blurry pictures. I can not hold my hands still today. They're shaking so bad I'm even having a hard time typing. Bleh!

  5. What a cool idea! I have three different crackles so I might just have to try this myself too.

  6. do you think it nwld be possible to stripe or blob the different clours so you had a mix of two or three crackle colours? that would be pretty :)

  12. That 'artwork' is exactly what I thought of when I saw the 2nd picture! I remember it appearing on clothes as well - in thick stripes down the legs of trousers or on the front of a jumper lol!
    Must have a go at layering the crackle, see what other nostalgic prints we can come up with:D

  16. Curse the blasted shaky hand syndrome! I know it and HATE it with you!!! :(

    BUT I'm WAY loving both combos and especially the second. You are spot on with the comparison to the 80s-90s abstract office art with splatter paint and funky geo shapes! AWESOMENESS! Teehee! :D

    Love the blasts from the past you so frequently bring to life - they never fail to make me smile! <3

  19. Wow, it looks great! I have thus far resisted the crackle, but seeing how it looks when you layer them kind of makes me want to buy them...
