China Glaze Metallic Crackle Glaze Skittles

I thought crackle skittles would be fun on my new mini nails
The China Glaze Metallic Crackles are such fun colors
Right to left, top to bottom: Latticed Lilac, Haute Metal (My favorite), Cracked medallion, Platinum Pieces and Tarnished gold
Tarnished gold up close
I did this a little thicker to get wider cracks
These give a lighter application so you can do a subtle crackle finish or apply thicker for serious crackle
I really like these, they are more versatile than most crackles since they are sheer if you apply lightly.
I did Haute Metal over a baby pink on my youngest and it gave a nice subtle crackle...of coarse she then picked at it until I couldn't get a picture. (She's 3 so not the best model choice)

Overall, Application is very nice, dry time is excellent and formula is awesome.
The crackle trend is being beaten to death but if you haven't tried any I think the metallics are my top pick!

  1. They're great!
    I'll take the pink and blue ones ^^

  2. Oh these look fun and I am surprised that my favorite is "Haute Metal", I was ready not to like the pink one, but it's HOT!!! LOL!

  3. Love! Can't wait til I can find these! Of course I'm gonna have to buy one of each; I can't help myself.  :P

  4. BOO! I am NOT digging these crackles at all. But the colors looks cool together!

  5. I think the crackles have been overdone!

  6. I like the metallics a lot more than the regular crackles

  7. That is my fav's just different somehow

  8. Metallic makes it all awesomeness! :o)

  9. I loooove crackles, I don't mind that the market is quite oversaturated with them at the moment :P I love these, I'll have to pick them up when I have any money!

  10. I hope the crackles are here to stay.  Nothing liking buying a bunch and then they go out of fashion.  I'm so worried about being in fashion.  Ha! Like the lilac and aqua.
