So my first box of Julep came (not my August box, but my 2nd order I made after ordering my first box) and it is the Crackle Craze set that (after viewing a much needed tutorial) I have fallen in love with the crackle nail style! These were not easy nail colors to capture properly in photos due to the very sparkly/shiny, but I’m still new to trying to photograph my nails. I promise it will improve! The orange and white are my favorite as it makes me think of gnarly trees. I’m definitely ready for fall/Halloween/my birthday xD 

ImageI started out with Orly Nail Defense as a first layer for a smooth start. Then applied two coats of Fantasy Makers Rest in Pieces(purchased last year from Shopko, don’t judge) for a nice under coat so that the black with purple sparkles would pop with the brighter colors.

This is 3 of the 4 that come in the Crackle set. The black one would not have worked with the black under coat that I wanted so I left that to be used another time. This set I think worked out well with what I chose. 

ImageThe middle nail. I loved the white. Silver was harder to capture so I apologize for no example. BTW I do not have salon quality nails nor do I care, keeping it real 😉

ImageMy thumb nail which I love the most because it looks so spooky and pumpkin-y. Yay!
