Crackle Nail Polish

I picked up this Crackle Nail Polish set from Primark for £5. It comes with a silver base, pink crackle and a glossy top.
First you apply the silver base, I only applied one coat but in future I think I’ll use two or maybe even three coats.
After that has dried, apply the crackle coat. The one I bought is in a bright, fluorescent neon pink – great for parties! After applying only one coat the polish shrivels and dries up and looks cracked.
 Finally apply the top coat to give your manicure a smooth, shiny finish.
Most of you, probably already know how to get a crackle manicure as it is effortless and simple to achieve.
I like that the bottles have a large handle so that it’s easy to hold on to. But, unfortunately, the crackled effect is not for me. I don't know what it is but I just don't like it too much. Saying that, I'm up for trying it on one nail has a feature nail, what do you think? What's your opinion on crackled nail polish?

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup Foundation

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup Foundation*

I recently went to get a sample of the Estee lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup Foundation from the beauty counter.
The lady was really nice and used her colour chart to find 3 shades that were best for me. She then tested these three shades on my cheek and told me that the best one would be the one that 'sinks into my skin', which turned out to be Desert Beige.
The sample is in a 4ml and is said to last 10 days.
I like that it 'sinks into my skin' because it feels light and weightless but at the same time gives a great coverage. Another bonus is that I haven't broken out in spots!
Overall, I would consider buying a whole bottle but not at the moment because I have other foundations to use first.

Have you tried Estee Lauder's iMatch service? What was your shade?
