I chose this color first of all because I'm addicted to pink. Specifically, soft, creamy pinks, like this one. The color itself is quite beautiful, a nice soft pink like something you'd see on a baby's blanket. Kind of like...strawberry milk, and it matches my pink eyeglasses! Huuhu. The formula is fairly thick, not quite jelly though, it's more... well, milky (how suitable!).
I'm TERRIBLE at painting my nails, so I apologize. ;P
The first thing I learned about this nail polish was that unlike some crackle polishes, which I can sometimes apply on semi-dried nails and still get a good effect, be sure that your nails are completely dry! If not, you risk this polish pulling up the base color while it dries. Crackle polishes amuse me. They're kind of like watching shrink wrap when you blast it with warm air (I used to help my friend package video games and systems in his gaming store, so I'm too familiar with this xD). That's the best description I can think of when I think about how this polish dries.
You can kind of tell on this photo, when the polish dries, it kind of slightly removes the bottom layer of polish, which in my case was black.
Oh! And though it doesn't say it on the packaging or website, this polish has a matte finish. I love matte finishes, but since I don't have any matte polishes right now, I just used a top coat so it would match. Although if you can tell in the photo above, my pink and middle finger don't have a top coat, you can kind of see the dullness of the matte, though I like that.
Overall, if you apply the polish on completely dry nails, it has a nice effect. Don't be a noob like me and apply them on semi-dry nails, you could ruin them and have to start over! At $7.67 per bottle, it's affordable and average cost, worth the price I think.
