b collection Crackle Top Coat in white swatches and review

Today I have swatches and my review of the new Crackle Top Coat from Aussie brand b collection. b collection is the sister brand of Bloom cosmetics and is available exclusively from Target stores. They have a great selection of colours in their collection so I was super excited to hear they were releasing two new crackle polishes! They are available in black and white and I have the white crackle top coat for you today. On another note, I just realised that this is the 3rd crackle/shatter polish I've shown you in the last week. I hope you ladies don't mind! I haven't really had time to do nail art so this is the next best thing ;)

What they say:

"b collection’s Crackle Top Coat is your essential tool for express nail art! Available in black or white, Crackle Top Coat lets your fingers do the talking with a show-stopping cracked finish.

Achieving an on-trend nail art look is easy. Simply apply Crackle Top Coat over your favourite b collection nail polish shade and watch as the top coat contracts and shatters appear - allowing your base shade to peek through."

Crackle Top Coat in white has a somewhat unusual formula. It's somewhat on the thin side but also a little gluggy which sounds extremely strange but the only way I can explain it! It applied well though and crackled quickly into thickish cracks. Here I've applied 1 thin coat to my previous Essie Van D'Go NOTD. It dries to a satin finish and I haven't applied topcoat in my pictures. I actually usually prefer my crackle/shatter manicures without topcoat as I like the roughish texture.

Overall: I love that b collection have made crackle polish a lot more accessible to everyone now! Your everyday nail polish lover (ie non polish crazed ladies!) may not know about other brands like OPI, China Glaze etc that have crackle but b collection is readily available at Target stores and at a much lower price point which is excellent. Polish wise, it crackled well and looks great. This is the first white crackle I've tried and I like that it's nicely opaque.

Details: b collection Crackle Top Coat is available now in black and white exclusively from Target stores Australia wide for $12.95.

  2. Great white crackle.. hmm Im sure i've seen that in the NZ pharmacies.. will check it out tomorrow ^^~ the craclking effect looks great on your nails ^___^ do you have any 'how to take care of your nails' posts? I only recently learnt you're not meant to cut the sides of your nail or you'll get an ingrown one T____T

  3. I think it looks a little like candy? I showed my aunt these crackling polishes and she just couldn't understand the point of it hehe!
