Missha HGR01 and Sephora by OPI Blasted Red ( Quick Pic Post!)

Just a quick post to show my nails today, I'm still unsure about crackle nail polishes so though I'd try again. I used beautiful duochrome HGR01 from Missha and Sephora by OPI Blasted Red that my friend bought back from Atlanta.





I think the red crackle reminds me of rivulets of blood and it's kind of freaking me out, as any injuries to nails or teeth make me feel really ill.  Anyway I tried to show the duochrome effect but I think it's lost slightly in the crackle. I like the colour combination generally though.  Do you like it? xxx

  1. Wow! This makes me love how crackle looks. So shiny! Did you use a top coat?

  2. Hi Mihaela, yes I put on Revlon topcoat, but really could have done with another layer of it. The crackle peels off otherwise and looks matte. x

  6. Thankyou Rebecca, I kicked myself as soon as I out one nail of crackle on that I didn't take photo's of the duochrome but it'll be done soon, just for you! xx

    Paul - I've had this on all day now and it's growing on me, I love the colours together, it reminds me of a japanese kimono I once saw. x

  8. The blue gold green duochrome reminds me of Chanel Peridot. You may have scored a gem here! ;) lovely combination!

  9. Thankyou Marta, it is similarish to Peridot but not exactly the same, once I do a post without the crackle on of the Missha you will see it's quite different! I actually prefer the Missha to the Peridot, but don't tell anyone!

  13. so cool! but instead of the usual cracking feeling, it looks more like there's metallic lava running out from your nails! The colour combo was so crazy yet that got the effect more higher!

  15. EyeGraffiti - that's a perfect way of putting it, much better than blood, I shall think of itlike that instead!

    Maria - it's definitely got the christmas colours but with a twist.

    bmwmchick - I must confess and this will sound horrible to some but I saw the kimono years a go and when I had a little flat I did my bedroom in those colours. I had a nice dark wooden floor and it looked beautiful! Really rich and exotic!
