China Glaze 'Crackle Glaze' Nail Polish Collection Swatches/Review ~ Amazing!



I received these yesterday and i couldn't be any more amazed with them! They are so fabulous! 
China Glaze has just brought out there Crackle Glaze collection, which is an unusual and unique formula which causes the polish to literally crack as it dries. 6 colours to choose from - Black Mesh, Broken Hearted, Cracked Concrete, Crushed Candy, Lightening Bolt + Fault Line.

I am so impressed with this collection, and the best thing is that it's so easy to use! You just swipe it on over a base coat (colour of your choice) then watch the cracks appear. 

I did notice that the glossier the nail polish base coat, the better it cracked. I used a China Glaze neon orange under Lightening Bolt and because the neon was a matte polish it hardly made the crackle polish crack.
You can see from this picture the 'crackle' isn't very effective with a matte base. If you use a matte polish, put a top coat over it before applying the crackle.

I love the effect, i love the concept and i love that it takes no time at all! It might not be for everyone but if you like to be a bit different or you love nail art, then these are definitely for you!

It is available in the UK now, i found a website that sells it here: beautychamber.co.uk

What are you thoughts on them?

  7. I'm especially loving the pink, white and turquoise coloured crackle polishes. I can't wait til they are released in Canada in just under a month now.
    Thanks for sharing the tip on how they crackle more over a shinier base colour. I guess you could try using a regular top coat on top a matte base colour and then once the shiny top coat dries, use the crackle polish on top?

  20. A way to be able to use the neons under the crackle is to make sure you put a clear coat over the top of the neon first, let it dry and then put the crackle on top. :) This is the coolest nail polish to come out in a long time. I have lightning bolt and OPI black shatter. Love it!
