Glam Morena: China Glaze Crackle Glaze Collection.

China Glaze Crackle Glaze Collection.

An innovative technology allows you to play with a wide array of color combinations and achieve an edgy, new wave look. This unique formula was developed to give your nails a “crackled” design over traditional nail color. Contrasting colors are used one over another to achieve a deconstructed shatter look that takes place right before your eyes. Instant art for your nails!

Lightning Bolt – White Crackle
Black Mesh – Black Crackle
Broken Hearted – Pink Crackle
Cracked Concrete – Grey Crackle
Fault Line – Purple Crackle
Crushed Candy – Teal Crackle

I received Lightning Bolt, Cracked Concrete, and Broken Hearted.

How do you do it? It’s easy! Apply your favorite China Glaze glitter, shimmer or cr√®me. Depending on the color you are using, apply either one or two coats for full coverage. When the colored enamel is dry, brush on a thin layer of the Crackle color. Allow the Crackle to work its magic during dry time. After approximately 5 minutes when the crackled design has completely formed, apply a top coat to seal the design for prolonged wear.

My thoughts: I love the appearance the crackle polish gives. It's dries in a matte finish, which I personally don't mind. If you're who prefers a shiny finish then you may want to apply a clear polish over it. I noticed this formula seemed to be more thick than my other China Glaze polishes. It took me 2-3 layers to notice the "crackled" effect. I also noticed that if you don't apply the polish a certain way it may not crack completely. As you can see displayed in the Lightning Bolt swatch above. The crackle trend is definitely taking over!

I agree, I love these combos you've created! I've seen a lot of black and greys so it's cool to see what the bright colours look like crackled. I can't wait to try this look.
