China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals for Summer 2011

China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals for Summer 2011

Set your summer style to “sizzle” with China Glaze’s new Crackle Glaze Metals collection. The pioneer in crackle technology, China Glaze takes the beauty phenomenon to the next level with this second-generation polish that pairs the edgy innovation of crackle with the elegant beauty of metals. Create dramatically different looks with just one sweep of China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals. Layer over different base colors to create bold styles. Use a lighter coat to create a fine crackle, a thicker coat for a deep shatter effect.

The China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals collection features six, limited edition sparkling metallic colors including:
  • Cracked Medallion - Bold bronze
  • Haute Metal - Pale pink
  • Latticed Lilac - Soft lavender
  • Oxidized Aqua - Deep aquamarine blue
  • Platinum Pieces - Shimmering silver
  • Tarnished Gold - Warm, honeyed hue
Crackle polishes were really popular earlier this year; think early Spring. Everyone was on the lookout for the stuff. The polishes would sell out within the first two days of hitting store shelves. Sometimes the response / demand was so great, depending on the unique factor of the crackle polish, they would be gone in less time than that.
Fast forward to now, mid-August, and the popularity has died down considerably. Call it over-exposure, or maybe it is just the changing of fashion trends. Either way I wasn't that excited to hear about another crackle polish being released at the end of July, even though this time it was to feature more of a crackle glazed metal look and feel to the nails. Enough already with the crackle.
A few days go by and my curiosity got the better of me and I went to my local Sally Beauty Salon to see the colors and try them on. I realized immediately that I had misjudged these crackle polishes and that my previous opinion was totally off base. While I was applying the crackle glazed metal polishes, I was most impressed with how smoothly the polish went on and I noticed an almost immediate crackle effect on the nails. In the past, I didn't have much success with them. They would just gunk up on the nail and there would be little to no crackle effect. So I knew that these nail polishes were different. I just don't know if it is because of the glazed metal attribute or if the nail polish formulation is altogether different from past crackle polishes. Anyway I bought 5 of the 6 colors that are currently available and I'm having a great time with them. No regrets here ladies and gentlemen!
