China Glaze Broken Hearted Crackle

Ahhh the awesomeness!

  This is probably my favorite color from this collection so far. Closely followed by Cracked Concrete.
  So, this is Broken Hearted, an awesome bright Pink crackle polish. The formula on this one was a bit thinner and runnier than the other crackles from this collection that I have shown you so far. I didn't find it problematic though, it was actually quite easy to work with. As my base color I used Two coats of ICING's Preppy Purple. I reeeeeally love this mani a lot!

China Glaze Crushed Candy Crackle

Hello hello,

  Today I have another crackle for you guys. This is the very pretty Crushed Candy from China Glaze's Crackle Collection.
  For this mani I layered Crushed Candy over Zoya Dove. I applied the crackle polish in a zig- zag motion to create a cool pattern on the nail. I thought there would be more contrast between these two colors and I know it's not coming across very well in my pictures but this combo is actually really pretty and subtle. The formula on this one is really easy to work with and it crackles really well. I don't know why but I love my shattered manis matted so much more than glossy. 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Orly Razzle

I was feeling sparkly today...

  So I decided to try this amazing color for the first time... And then I sat there and wondered why I had not worn it sooner....
  So, Razzle is a beautiful Raspberry toned shimmery base packed with micro Fuchsia glassflecks that give this a beautiful subtle sparkle. Looking at the bottle I thought the sparkle would be more Silver but I like it on the nail so much more, it is like a toned down version of O.P.I Let me Entertain You. I really really love this color a lot. It is also very flattering and I think any skin tone could pull this off. The formula is a great two- coater. This has excellent pigmentation. I think my next pedi will be this color :). I love Berry tones, they are always so happy.

What shades look best on you guys?

China Glaze Lightning Bolt Crackle

Hello ladies,

  Short and to the point today. I was really loving the Bettina polish I showed you guys yesterday so I decided to keep it for one more day but adding one of my new China Glaze Crackle to it.
  The effect turned out a bit Halloween but I really like this. For a white crackle this has pretty good coverage. Lightning Bolt has kind of a thick formula but it crackles pretty well. For this mani I did all 10 nails in a straight up and down brushstroke. I'm really loving these CG Crackle polishes so much!

Yay Crackle!
