Newbie at crackle

My first attempt at painting my own nails using crackle. Bought both bottles of nail polish from a spree online– Orly’s Sea Gurl and China Glaze’s Crackle Latticed Lilac.

First, I did two layers of Sea Gurl. It was a nice gunmetal shade. Also, the handle of the nail applicator had a good grip which made it easy to paint with.

This was followed by a layer of Latticed Lilac. The texture of the crackle nail polish was very thick and it dried very easily.

The end product seems like a big blob of paint :( Also, I think the colours are too similar that I couldn’t see the crackle. I will definitely use the Sea Gurl alone and get a lighter base coat to go with the crackle.

Anyone with tips on proper application of crackle?
