Boots 17 Nail Extras Crackle Top Coat

Hot on the heels of every other brands crackle polish, Boots 17 bring their offering, and not the standard black but in GOLD!!! 

I introduce Boots 17 Nail Extras Crackle Top Coat:

A really pale gold that has an interesting finish - it is almost matte, with a teasing hint of shimmer. I painted this over the top of the Boots 17 Supreme Shine from the last post as I felt it needed a dark base to really let the gold pop! I painted the polish diagonally across the nails, to try a different finish and I think it looks pretty cool! 

  • Drying Time - as with all crackles, this dried really quickly, however I think this would be affected by the thickness of the polish
  • Price - £3.99 for the bottle and you get 10ml, another bargain as it is on the Boots 3 for 2 offer! 
  • Thickness of the polish - this was really tricky to get a thin layer so that I would get a lot of crackling, I couldn't get one thin layer so I painted 3 thinish layers diagonally across the nail and the finish was good.

Another great polish from 17, but how much longer are we going to be in love with crackles and start going off this? What do you think, are you bored of crackles yet? Or still loving them?

  1. Oooh good find, I didn't know 17 were giving the crackle trend a go, this is good for those who don't want to spend as much as the CG and OPI polishes. xx
