China Glaze Metal Crackle Glaze Nail Lacquers!

When black shatter and crackle polishes first appeared on the scene last year, I wasn’t a fan. Nope, not at all. I thought they made your nails look chipped and messy. Next the coloured versions were released, prettier but meh, I was still unconvinced. Next came the glitter polishes! Well as I’m a total sucker for glitter, I started to warm up to them… Then one Saturday afternoon, while sitting at a table with my gorgeous MBBE ladies, I tried the China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metal polishes for the first time. And well, it was definitely love at first swatch!

The China Glaze Crackled Glaze Nail Lacquers come in 6 fun, glittery colours. They all look fabulous and are super easy to use. Just apply your base colour, wait until it’s dry to touch, then apply a layer of the crackle polish and watch the magic happen. Et voila, you get awesome looking nails with close to zero effort! 😀
Tarnished Gold 
A lovely yellow gold. Such a happy shade, that would look great over a multitude of nail colours. Especially pinks!

Latticed Lilac 
An icy, silverly lilac. It’s super pretty but I wish more of the purple came through when on the nail.

Cracked Medallion
My favourite of the 3! A golden bronze that’s simply stunning, like Cleopatra sort of stunning! Love it <3

    They look GREAT Jess! Totally lemming them now… which is surprising considering I’m not on the crackle band wagon either…

    Ohhh the second combo is definitely my favourite!
    I think I agree- I like the look on other people but I think it’d annoy me too much because it can look chipped… maybe I’ll try these glitter versions!

    I’m totally with you on crackle nail polish but these I could totally get behind. I especially love the black and bronze, gorgeous!
