Psynopsis Crackle Nail Varnish

Nonono, this is not me cracking up, this is me hissing through gritted teeth: 'Coooome on, take the bloody picture, pleeaase!'… Because the crackle nail varnish is chipping away as we speak. As you can see, I waited too long, and it's not perfect anymore, but I'm still quite enamoured with the idea of crackle art on my fingers… What about you – crackle-di-do – yes or no?

The lovely Isabel from Walk of Fashion is featuring me as 'Girl of the Blogosphere'. So, if you always wanted to know why I'm thinking maxi skirts are a difficult fashion choice, just hop over here.

I love this skirt, it looks so soft. And the all-grey look is working! I've been meaning to try these crackle nails, I'll have to give it a go. Hope you're well! x

Dancing Branflake said...

So lovely! And seriously, when you smile through gritted teeth you look absolutely charming.

Kazuko said...

your outfit is amazing (the dress/skirt - perfect! also perfect lenght; and the colour goes really well with your hair colour).

aaah, crackle nail art... i saw the OPI crackle colour/serum/thingy already on the shelf and was wondering how it would look in real life - wow!

(loved the interview!)

Christina @ Fashion's Most Wanted said...

Dear Sabine, you look gorgeous in grey and I love the nails.

The photographs on the Walk of Fashion post are fabulous. The red hat is my favourite but I love them all xx

November Grey said...

Fabulously casual, chic outfit! And your nails are rad! xx

drollgirl said...

i used to take ceramics classes and i was always enamored with the crackle glaze. i never did get it to work properly. wait: i can't remember if i even tried it. how sad is that?!

Kavery said...

Never tried an all-grey outfit but it's working well here. The fabric of the skirt seems super soft

Vanessa, Take only Memories said...

Love your nails! So cute!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

This is so funny because I JUST bought OPI shatter today and am wearing it! Painted my nails at work. But Im kind allowed to do that since I work for a cosmetics company :)

Love this look. The skirt is fabulous! Off to check out your feature at Isabel's :) xoxo

I love the skirt ... and the second shot is sooo beautiful. Love it ... it seems different from the pictures you post usually. Cannot point out what exactly is different though!

Unfortunately I could not plan to meet you when I was in London since the trip was so short and rushed. But I have heard wonderful things about you from Sherin! Not that I was surprised! :)

Already checked the feature at Isabel's and loved it :)

Your nail-art is cracking me up, Sabine, so refreshingly different in a playful way. Noone wears grey quite like you do. off to Isabel's blog home for more on you;-)

MyStyle said...

Hi my dear-your nails do look fabulous, but I'm adoring your grey outfit, it really is so minimalist and chic and a really great look xx

Indie.Tea said...

Gorgeous! Love your boots and the maxi skirt.

the nyanzi report said...

ha! you're hilarious. i love the first shot.

LenoreNeverM♡re said...

I'm going to copy the fab nails, Sabine!
Gorgeousss...

Maddy said...

I love the nails! Too bad I'm terrible with manicures. They only last a few minutes until I manage to chip or ruin them in some way. That's why I tend to keep my finger nails polish free, though I do fare well with pedicures. I may have to give this crackle look a go...on my feet :)

Noelle Chantal said...

Love the nails, the pleated skirt and the all gray hues in this outfit. You look so chic! :)

jess said...

I love your skirt.

Karena said...

Sabine,

Love the outfit, not so much the nails!! The gray is so soft and heathery,

Those nails against that soft skirt are a work of art. You wear grey so beautifully and your smile between gritted teeth is hilarious! xxx

vint junky said...

Y'see even jersey greys looks exciting on you. The skirt (dress) is perfect!
And i'm a yes for the crackle glaze, i still haven't tried it. But i'm taking note that black/gold is the perfect combo for it ;)

vint junky said...

ps. I'll never get comfortable with other people taking the photos. Every non- self portrait could have a bubble saying "Are we done/in focus/sane?"

Cindy Whitehead said...

i think that crackle polish looks kinda cool on you! Nice job w/it!!

Couture Carrie said...

Lovely look, darling!
What a fabulous manicure!
And congrats on your feature ~ am off to check it out!

You are funny :-) I have no patience or time for painting my nails. Will do my toes in the summer. Lovey to see a post like this from you again. Xxxx
