Nicole by OPI Black Texture

Hey look, it's another black crackling polish! Nicole by OPI's Black Texture.  I decided to use my previous manicure from yesterday as my base.

Unfortunately, I found this polish to be thick, muddy and it wrinkled up on me on the nail.  It just needs a little thinner, which is pretty typical of crackle/texture/shatter polishes.

Boo older brush.  Never knew I'd miss the Perfect Brush that just came out.

Now, I decided to attempt something more than just the normal crackling.
Normal on the pinkie and ring finger (I actually paint my nails from pinkie to thumb), butt hen I tried horizontal stripes on my middle finger and sideways on my index finger.  I think I'm happy with just "normal" vertical lines instead.

In the shade, you can see how it's a bit wrinkly on me as well as bumpy.

Finally indoors with the flash - I like this color combo a lot!  And I really like that crackle hides the whole weird jelly/sorbet finish.

Nicole by OPI is available beginning at ULTA, Meijer, Harmon, HEB, Sears, Wal-Mart and more for around $8 a bottle.  For more information, visit their websitefollow Nicole by OPI on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.

  1. I like that the fissures are wide with this one. But, it could be due to your technique? Either way...kewl!!!

  2. That is an awesome crackle! Great pics, color combo! The wrinkling isn't great but it is kind of lava looking.
