fluffy crocodile

Wearing my most recent purchase in the above photo, black 'hairy lurex jumper' from New Look, £24.99. It's so soft and fluffy! I forgot to get a proper outfit photo so apologies for the poor quality webcam photo, but I felt like I was having a good hair day so wanted to document it haha.

And these are my new nails, created with Barry M Croc Nail Effects. I like this effect much better than the crackle effect, although I don't think it's quite 'crocodile'. I applied Rimmel Lycra Pro in Golden Totem and when it was touch-dry, I layered the black croc polish on top. I think it works by the underlayer shrinking as it dries, causing the top layer to contract and therefore creating the effect. I have no idea how it creates a 'croc' rather than 'crackle' effect though, maybe a thinner consistency? I think it works well with a metallic base as the cracks really show up. Next time, I will apply a thicker underlayer for bigger cracks to make it more noticeable.
