Some China Glaze Metallic Crackle Swatches

Hi loves and happy Thursday!

  Sorry for the late post today. Yesterday was "one of those days". But! Here I am with some swatches of the China Glaze Metallic Crackles.
This is Cracked Medallion over CG Rodeo Fanatic. This one is a Coppery metallic crackle. I really love this combo. Cracked Medallion applies easily and cracks nicely. This one is just a few shades darker than Tarnished Gold.

This is Platinum Pieces over Dr.'s Remedy Lovely Lavender. This one is a nice clean Silver Crackle. A little less dense that Color Club's Broken Tokens. IMHO this one crackles a little better than Color Club, similar to O.P.I's Silver Shatter in how it breaks up but totally different in Silver tones.

And just for fun here are my Swatches I had shown you before of Tarnished Gold and Oxidized Aqua.
I love these. Yes, the crackle trend is getting slightly our of hand with everyone and their mothers releasing their own versions but these Metalics are petty cool and unique. I'm only missing Latticed Lilac and Haute Metal but I'm not too bummed because for some reason those weren't speaking to me as much as the Golden tones or the pretty metallic Blue. These are fun and they lend themselves to hundreds of awesome color combos!

Crackle: Love it or leave it?

  6. I think it's nice that CG came up with a new kind of crackles. Metallic crackles is a good idea. They are pretty but I won't get them cos I'm not sooo into crackles/shatters even if I find them super pretty and trendy ;D

  7. I really like you swatches of Tarnished and the Aqua...and have to say again, I am not a fan of crackles/spackles at all. But these 2 and your swatches of them almost makes me want to get those 2 shades. The other 2 you swatched here today for us - not a fan of. But not to take my comment personal - nothing about your great shots and great swatches - just my dislike for that rubbery look that these products give overlaying an otherwise great mani.

  8. @Nailderella I am with you on that one Naildereall. I like a couple of these CG crakles but not buying any. I got the OPI black when it hit and could not give the 3 I had away fast enough!
