Product Review: Crack nail polish by Nabi

I have been debating if I wanted to spend the money and purchase some crackle nail polish.  I love O.P.I., but their crackle was a bit more than I was willing to spend on nail polish. As I type this, I am kicking myself for not just biting the bullet and spending the $5 when it was on clearance.
Anyway, I ran into my local Walgreen’s to purchase a few things and to my surprise they have crackle nail polish on sale for 2 for $5. I thought, that’s not too bad and there were tons of colors to choose from. I was so geeked to get home and start my crackle experience. Yea uh, this Crack Nail Lacquer by Nabi is not the business! I hate to do a bad review, but it is what it is.
I purchased neon yellow and a hot pink because I love bright colors on my nails. I’ve never heard of Nabi, but for that price, I thought I would give it a try. When I tell you guys I tried every color under the sun for this to work….this did not work. I wish I would have taken a picture of how awful it looked. It didn’t really crackle like I’ve seen O.P.I. or other brands do. I mean guys, I tried black nail polish and it still looked a
I want to return it, but of course I can’t find my receipt. Maybe I’m doing it wrong. I found a tutorial on You Tube that I will check out. I’ll see if it helps, but if not, I’ll be giving this away to some cute little girls who like to play dress up.Also, I have to mention that is has a “nail shop” smell to it. It smells like the gel nail shops use for the glue nails. So if you are sensitive to that, you will not want this.
Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?

    I hated it. I just bought it and I tried it. I also bought it for 2 for $5 at Walgreens. I bought the bright purple one and the neon yellow. I even tried it on white and it didn’t crack as much as I wanted to! It was also gummy-ish, and it just did not work. Luckily though, I do have the reciept, so I am going to return it. I am so disapointed and now I have to go out and get the expensive stuff.

      I’m so glad it wasn’t just me. I thought for a second I was doing it wrong. I do like the O.P.I. brand or the China Glaze.
