Kelier Black Crack Polish

Born Pretty sent me some of their nail products to check out and the first one I'll share with you is their Kelier Crack Polish in black. I used one coat over a red creme shade and it took approximately 3 minutes to "crack". It retained a high gloss finish, and it seemed to adhere well. I will mention that I tried it over a glitter polish initially, and the adhesion was not as good. It seems to works very well with creme and shimmer finishes though.

I tried this polish over a couple of other shades and depending on your base polish, the crackle effect will vary in the pattern that emerges. Over creme shades, I always ended up with an evenly distributed pattern that was similar to what is shown. Over shimmer polishes, I ended up with a finer, more delicate crack pattern. Born Pretty offers 7 shades of their crack polishes, and they retail for $4.08 for one. The more you buy, the more you save.

Born Pretty carries a wide variety of nail polishes, cosmetics, and nail art supplies. It appears that they accept PayPal, and there is a section on their website for discount coupon codes. Information of their shipping costs can be found here.

  1. Oh, I'm SO glad I read this! I've been having trouble getting it to adhere, but I have been trying it over glitters. I'll have to try it over a creme!

  2. I've got the same!
    I'm not very happy of the crack )=
    It's not the same effect as others

  3. As much as I love crackle polishes, I'm not really a fan of how this one looks. There's not much of the base color peeking through.

    Glad I found this because I was thinking about trying out some of their crackle.

  4. Love this crackle effect. Can't wait till China Glaze comes out with there's. I also like this brand since there are different shades of crackle polish.

  5. Crackle polishes are so much fun!

  6. This is so hot!!! I have never seen crackle polish before.
