J: I’m in love with shatter/crackle polish.
J: I’m in love with that nail polish that cracks all over your fingers. You’ve got it right?
Me: Oohhhh! No. Not a single bottle.
J: What? How do I have it and you don’t?!
Ironically when I got my hair cut on Friday my stylist asked me how come I didn’t have the crackle polish and she did. I don’t get EVERYTHING in the world of beauty, folks. I know I have a lot of stuff, but again I don’t get everything. And a lot of times when it comes to polish I like to read nail polish blogs like All Lacquered Up to see what they have to say about new nail collections. So I decided to take the plunge and pick up 2 bottles of the new China Glaze Metallic Crackle (because the standard colors have been sold out at my local Sally Beauty but they told me to come back on Sunday for the Metallics).
Since I picked up China Glaze Oxidized Aqua Crackle Glaze Metal I decided I should really make the color pop so I put it on top of OPI by Sephora in I’m Wired, a bright coral creme. The results were pretty cool and now I want to layer this aqua metallic crackle over a dark navy or teal to see what it looks like with dark and sparkle mixed together.
It’s a fun alternative to my traditional manicure and next I’ll have to try it on m toes. I also picked up a gold shade of the crackle glaze, so we’ll see how that goes next. But have any of you tried the crackled polish look? What do you think about it?
