Cherry Pie : Smashing Model's Own Polishes

Smashing Model's Own Polishes

I think these are probably the last crackle nail polishes I will purchase. It seems that every brand of nail polish is releasing crackle polishes in a rainbow of different colours. We don't really need so many and I don't know why I have so many either! They were a novelty while it lasted and although they are still a nice effect on the nails, it will probably be a while until I use a crackle polish again.

Having said that, I want to write my last crackle polish review of Model's Own Smash Up polishes in Purple and Pink. I picked these up for £8 for the two which is a little bargain right there! The colours are very pretty, the Pink is very neon and almost exactly like the new Barry M Pink crackle but the Purple has a lovely shimmer to it that I really like.


I've been wearing the Purple Smash Up for the past week and it has lasted well. It was a little thin when I applied it, which was quite surprising, but I found that you can do more than one layer and it will still look OK. The neon Pink is a little hard to wear, as in I'm not sure what sort of base coat, other than very pale nudes, white or black, I could use underneath it.



Models Own are also selling an Orange Smash Up on ModelsOwnIt.com as well as the Black and Silver but I'd really love to see some different colours, maybe some greens or yellows in the collection, and that doesn't just go for Models Own but all polish brands. However, I think the future of crackle polishes might be in mixing different colours together and ending up with some sort of rainbow crackle. Have I got something there?

  5. Rainbow crackle sounds like a good idea. I know what you mean about them being everywhere, it seems like everyone's bringing them out but the novelty has worn off.

  6. I have the purple, I like it for the metallic/glitteryness. I also bought the silver as I too got the 2 for £8 but I've not tried it out yet.xx

  7. You know I've never tried crackle polish, but I think it's a good thing. I would just pick the polish off constantly! The texture would be too tempting! :)

  12. I am so bored of crackle polishes now. It's a trend which is in for a while but will be out soon. Although it looks nice I really do prefer my polished looking nails rather than the grungey effects the crackles give! Any polish jumping on the bandwagon now is really very late with this trend!
