An Orange Crackled Pineapple

I had plans to post this on Thursday...then on Friday...and now it's 2:30am on Saturday morning and I'm finally posting!

I wanted to show everyone another of the Mia Secret Crackles I purchased on ebay. There was a wide range of colours available and at only $2 a bottle I was prepared if they didn't live up to my expectations. Luckily the three bottle I bought, gold, orange and rose, seem to crackle just as well as other crackles I've used. The formulae does smell stronger, but if you can look past that, they're fun to play with and come in a lot of colours.

Mia Secret Crackle in Orange over China Glaze Electric Pineapple
I'm still coming to turns with my break, but I wanted to apply some polish. I decided on Electric Pineapple, but then it was too bright for what I'd wanted. So I made it even brighter with some orange crackle. I actually really like this combination. I love orange polish, so I love the twist of wearing an orange crackle. It's so bright and summery...if only we weren't going into winter!

I still have the gold crackle to test out, hopefully I can do that today. The colour doesn't seem to be as nice as the orange or rose. If I have time I'll test them all over a few different colour polishes. I want to see if they can handle a darker base.


  1. This combination is just amazing!

  2. Thanks! I'm so tempted to buy more...there was a green crackle.

  3. Oh, I love that colour combination! Makes me think of a sunflower ;) So bright!

  4. I love this - It's making me crave Summer and hot weather!!

  5. I got some of this brand and they do stink! ;)
    But, ohhh, what a beautiful mani you made. It's perfect for summer.
