Cherimoya 2012 Cracked Polish

For those of you that follow me on Facebook,
you know that the other day I stumbled across a wide line 
of crackle polishes by the brand Cherimoya.
I'd never heard of this brand before, 
but I was most excited to try them out.

They have a total of 24 shades of crackle polish.
Some, of course are similar to the popular colors
we are seeing now by so many different brands. 
BUT, they have tons of colors I've never seen before.
So I really couldn't resist.

The formula on these varies from color to color. 
Some went on smoothly with no issues, 
while others were either on the thick side, 
or some on the streaky side.
 The White being the worst of the bunch and the neons 
being the best that I picked up.
These polishes also have an extremely strong odor, 
so if you are sensitive, BEWARE!
I highly recommend you use them in a very
well ventilated area.

All of the colors I picked up, I swatched with a
White base, however, even with adding a top coat as a barrier,
2 shades stained the White while cracking.
Those 2 colors are Hades & Typhoon.
While I think it kind of gives a cool effect, 
if you are looking for a strong showing of the
base color with these 2, it's not going to happen.

Here's some swatches

(Starting from left to right)

Extraterrestrial, Hellos, Mercy Me, Sungod

Prayer, Immortal, Trinity, Virgin


Tomorrow, Savior, Typhoon

Hades, Mayan, Prophecy

Innocence, Sinner

I found these in a small local beauty supply shop,
so if you've got one near you, I say take a peek,
these may be there.
As for everyone else, they are available at and retail for $2.99 each.

I say if you are a crackle junkie, like myself, 
you should check these out, particularly the neons.

OH! I almost forgot!

There was no way I could NOT do this nail design, 
considering I am an 80's girl through & through!
I love Katy Perry and her love for nail art! 

So here is the design.
