NOTD: Essie Dive Bar + Gold Crackle

This is an old NOTD, but a few weeks ago I grabbed my new Dive Bar polish and when i was done i LOVED it but i thought it would look cool and grungey underneath of Sally Hansen's Antiqued Gold Crackle Overcoat polish.
Dive Bar is actually opaque with one medium-thick coat but i chose to do two thin coats to make it more even.
Swatches, w/o crackle
1 coat AVON Lemon Fortifier as base
2 coats Essie Dive Bar
Swatches, with crackle
1 coat AVON Lemon Fortifier as base
2 coats Essie Dive Bar
1 coat Sally Hansen Antiqued Gold Crackle Overcoat
1 coat Seche Vite topcoat
I love these two shades together. They're really not 'summery' but they'd be perfect for fall and typically i dont stick to seasonal trends anyway, lol, i just do whatever i want. My husband actually liked this NOTD alot too surprisingly.


  1. I love Dive Bar. It's beautiful! I'm not sure how I feel with the gold crackle on top, though. It has a pretty result, but I think it completely covers up the prettiness of the color that is Dive Bar lol :) Either way, it still looks great, though, especially against your skin tone! It would probably look weird on mine lol

  2. wow i love those polish.. really beautiful!
    hope your doing well btw.
    take care! enjoy your pregnancy!
