Cracked up nail polish is all the rage and you will no doubt see it all over the place as more and more brand release their version of cracked up polish. Always keeping up with the trends Tip Top, one of my all-time fave brands, has recently released their own version, in two fabulous colours and with a clever twist.
Endorsed by South African drummer, model, actress and dancer Rikki Brest, these trendy nail polishes are inspired by her unique and innovative style. Available in two shades; Black Mosaic Crackle and Gold Rush Crackle, you can create your own colour combinations and effects.
The U Crack Me Up polishes come in a duo container; one side has the crackle polish, and the other contains Top Flou Top Coat. At only R79.99 per duo, its totally affordable and leaves your nails looking stylish and trendy.

See how different and totally cool they are? The black crackle gives the nail a funky feel, while the gold adds a more ornate, vintage lace inspired look,
