Cracking Up

crackle nail polish

Let's take our focus off of how pissed off I look in the first picture, and talk about how adorable Toby is. The sun was just in my eyes, really. Or we can talk about how this is an extra large Queen shirt I made into a tunic. That's actually not that exciting. Let's go back to Toby. Adorable, right? Oh! and the crackle nail polish!

If I had enough patience I would look through my entire Twitter feed to find a tweet I sent out back in October asking if anyone knew where I could get crackle nail polish. I remember it from when I was a kid, and I wanted to do it for Halloween. Well, besides the fact that nobody responded to the tweet, I still couldn't find it anywhere. Fast forward a couple months, Katy Perry comes out with an OPI collection that includes a black "shatter" nail polish, and everyone's acting like this is a new concept. Everywhere I look, it's sold out. Then I see OPI has a Pirates of the Caribbean collection with silver shatter polish. Again, can't find it anywhere. Then the other day I was getting my nails done and the guy goes, "have you tried crackle nail polish?" and I told him my whole life story about it, and he goes, "oh we have it" and of course, I have to get it. At first I was going to get pink, but then I thought, why not go with the obnoxiously bright neon orange? That's appropriate. The rest is history. Alright, kiddies, story time's over.

  3. Oooo yea crackle polish looks good! love the orange. are those your real nails? i cannot get mine to grow for the life of me. no such pretty nails for me!

  4. I love the nail-polish story, especially your remark about how all of a sudden everyone is acting like Crackle/Shatter polish has never been done before. I was thinking the same thing.
    I love the play on proportions with this outfit, and I reallllly love the jean vest. It's so summertime chic.
