Sephora Blasted Nail Colour Review

I've been really excited to try the "crackled" look ever since the first OPI ones came out. I bought one from ChinaGlaze in black, but never tried it since it looked too "loud" for my taste.

I saw that Sephora started selling their own "crackled" nail polishes called "Blasted". There are 8 different colors online but I've only seen it in black, silver, and gold in stores. Since it's summer, I grabbed a bottle of the gold one and, at first, I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it's growing on me. :)

 It took a few tries to get it right. I read a few reviews already about how you should apply a thin coat, etc, but I still got it wrong. Anyway, I applied the gold on top of a bright pink, Chanel's Rivera, for the summer and here's how they look:

I have a periwinkle blue nail polish from Sally Hansen that I want to try next. I'm really liking gold this summer, so I'm not sure I'll be buying anymore colors, but there were some gorgeous blues available on Sephora's website!

Thanks for reading,
