Yolizul 189 & Essence Black Cracking top coat

I'm not really fond of crackle mania that caught my fellow nail polish lovers, but I simply could not resist this new Essence crackling top coat that came to stores few weeks ago. First, it was because of the price, which is several times lower than OPI's or China Glaze's Crackles, and second: I had to have at least one cracking polish to make myself sure I don't dig it.

And I don't.
But I hope you will! :)

And the right hand:

Yolizul is some cheap new brand that I tried recently, and I must say I'm thrilled!

For 1$ (approximately) you get very good creme polish, coverable in two coats, and in beautiful colors!
This one reminds me of Orly's Gumdrop or Maybelline Minty, and application was o.k., too, not streaky.

The other colors I got (and will show to you soon) are pale yellow (similar to Illamasqua Load) and pale blue. All spring colors, pastel and creme.

I love spring :)

So, what do you think of my Crackling top coat?


  1. I must say I like the OPI and China Glaze shatters more! But for such a low price, I know I can't resist buying this one!

  2. Aw, man, how can you not love crackles? LOL, it's okay, not all finishes are for everyone ;) I personally think this looks great - I love the pale creme you used as base and am looking forward to see the rest you bought!
    Thanks for following my blog btw, I'm following you too now :)
