Inglot crackle nail polish: NOTD and review

I know I'm extremely late to the party but at least I'm here now. Got a crackle nail polish finally. Was at inglot store recently when the MUA there told me they had just launched their Cracked polishes and that there was a promotional offer on it. What! Offer? Discounts? Yes yes show me. They have some 6 basic shades- black, red, blue, white, green and yellow I think and the MRP on these is 750 but I got it for 490. Picked up the black.

Inglot Crackle Nailpolish

Base colour-Lakme Orange Color Crush
So this dries very quickly and to a matte finish and as it dries it separates and cracks. In fact it dries so fast that the minute you take the brush out of the bottle it begins to dry- on the brush itself. So you have to be really quick in application. One good thing is you don't have to worry about a neat uniform finish coz it's gonna crack anyway. It's like watching a film develop. Not that I've seen a film develop in person but kinda know what it's like. :p
You could put a top coat over this if you like an all glossy finish.
Oh and I've been wondering- what happens if this dries a little? You know how you add acetone to other nail paints if they dry a little.. I wonder if the same could be done here or if it'll alter the composition or something. There's 15mL in the bottle and it would take a looong time to finish it up, since you can't wear more than one coat at a time anyway.
I've layered it over the orange polish from lakme's colour crush range.

Overall, this is fun to try and gives you an interesting manicure without much effort. But I don't think I'd buy this again coz the novelty wears off pretty soon. There's so much other stuff that's tempting me now like hex glitters, duo chromes and holographic nail paints.
