Questions & Answers for nails inc. Special Effects Crackle Top Coats

Compare to OPI
I've tried a number of crackles or shatters from OPI. Half of them are clumpy, goopy garbage. How do the Nails, Inc. crackles compare? Are there any colors to avoid?

answer 1
I got Camden Black and it looks great with any color that is lighter! Takes a long time to dry as opposed to the quick drying OPI.

answer 2
I haven't tried OPI's crackle yet, but I am thoroughly happy with Nails Inc's version. Also, just to be safe I added a top coat from Orly. P.S. It looks MUCH more sparkly and pretty in person than captured in the photo.
