Funky Fingers- Crackle Edition

So the other day, I made my virgin trip to a Five Below, both polishes part of my finds.

First, Two coats of Wet N' Wild Blue Moon. It looks almost black in the bottle, but it is a lovely color once out.
Then, I tried out Funky Fingers new White Crackle. I am not a fan of white crackles as I have seen so far. This is the first one I used and owned. I was thoroughly impressed by the crackling and the quick drying ability.
However, the brush was a little wonky, not sure if it was just the bottle I got, or the design, the brush was curled. UPDATE: I checked my bottle of Funky Fingers gray crackle I also bought and the brush is normal, so the wonkiness is limited to this bottle.
Any comments and constructive criticism appreciated.

So a nice mani at a great price.

For this, I used three different colors, all Wet n' Wild. Warning: I need to get a better camera, I use my phone (5mp) right now because I am unsure of my current cameras placement. This mani was so much better IRL, of course until I smudged it.
First, 1 coat Wet n' Wild Black Creme.

Next I did one coat of Wet n' Wild Hannah Pinktana. Was going to do this as a french style nail with a black tip, but this polish was much more sheer than I thought. Unfornately, I forgot to take a picture of this stage.
Next, I did one coat of Party of Five Glitters. This gave it a party/universe vibe.
Another view:

Finally, I did a top coat with Seche Vite to make it smooth. Unfortunately, I had to get ready for work too close to me finishing my mani and one hand got horribly creased when I got ready. It really is a beautiful mani, too bad I have to get rid of it because of the horrible creases.
Let me know what you think. Any reviews and constructive criticism is welcome. Also, I have not had a chance to post a picture of my haul of polishes and other stuff I have acquired to I guess jumpstart my collection. Overall, I have gotten about 30 polishes(some minis), a spotting tool(only 1.49) and 4 packs of nail decals(1$/each). Cant wait to show you.

I got these today among others(Will post a picture of all the new polishes)

Funky Fingers White and Gray Crackle.. Only 3$ a piece so it cannot hurt to try.

Recent Nail Designs

So first, I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Hot Magenta for the nails, and NYC White for the flowers.
First, I applied 2 coats of the Hot Magenta.
To do the flowers, I dipped cosmetic qtips in white and applied the dots in a flower fashion.

So I am new at this

This is going to be a place I post my manis, fails and successes along with my hauls once in awhile. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions :)
