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 crème. 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.
