Summary
I do not think that it is easy to use this product. And it not looks professional, more like a cracked egg effect. I only used it once with silver coat under and I did not like the look of my nails, it is weird. Maybe for Halloween or for Rock concerts, but not for everyday use.

They are expensive but I bought mine in the sale for 75p. Definitly shop around for the best deals.
Summary
I was so excited when I found this for only 75p so I had to buy it, I have been using the sally Hansen crackle polish which I also got for £1 from Poundland. (Another bargain)
The sally Hansen one has glitter in it and the opi one is just black polish. The Opi one crackles more than the Sally Hansen one and also dries faster but I've found that you can touch up the places you've missed without effecting the look as long as you don't go over it again.
I have worn it over the top of standard nail polishes of all different colours and I'm wearing it over the Itsy Nails DuraPro Gel Effect nail polish colour In Deep and it looks fantastic.
All you need is a nice even layer and not too much polish on the brush so that it crackles nice and even.
I especially like the fact that if you chip your nail polish you can just pop a layer of the crackle polish over it and hide it easily. As it dries fast it's also great on the go to give your nails a nice fresh mani look. Also if your just starting to get into nail art it's an easy way to get different effects, if you apply the crackle from side to side instead of bottom to top or even diagonally you'll get different looks.
I've also added a matte top coat and it looks fab.
I definitly recommend this if you can find it on sale, there's also the Sally Hansen crackle just as good which you can purchase in Poundland atm and there's Barry M too.
It's a very clever polish and I really love wearing it.

Summary
This is a great crackle effect, but I would suggest opting for Barry M's cheaper alternative as the difference really isn't worth the price difference.

I have found this the best quality crackle effect polish,it is easy to apply but you have to be quick as it dries really quickly.
If you finish off with a good topcoat it lasts for ages
The best quality brand polish
