China Glaze Crackle Glitters; Review & Swatches
Well, it took me a week to get these swatched (the kids were anti-me-working all weekend/week), but I think they are worth the wait. Next month, China Glaze will be releasing their Crackle Glitter polishes ($9ea), click HERE to see the press release info.
Glam-More: "Bold fuchsia" this is definitely a bright fuchsia and it's packed full of glitters. Compared to the other three polishes, this one is much more dense and easily covers the nail with glitter in one swipe.
Gleam Me Up: "Bright sky blue" A pure bright blue almost sky blue, this one is not as glitter dense as Glam-More, you have to be very generous when applying. The pinky nail has a light application, similar to how you would normally apply your polish color, where you swipe a bit of the polish off the brush against the rim of the bottle. If you don't wipe any polish off and just apply it directly on the nail, your crackle will look more like the other three nails.
Jade-D: "Radiant bright green" In the bottle, this looks more like a bright green, but once applied it looks more like a green-toned gold. Don't feel disappointed though, as a gold glitter crackle polish this is amazing! It's definitely one of my favorites of the bunch. The glitter density is less than the other three polishes, but if you are generous in your application you can get a really nice coverage, enough to see the crackle effect for sure.
Luminous Lavender: "Luscious light purple" this is a very light and bright lavender, or light purple. It's not as densely packed with glitter as Glam-More and Gleam Me Up, but it's much more packed than Jade-D is. This is a great color, but it's tricky to play with. It doesn't show up well on medium ranged shades, but on top of dark or super light polishes it gives a great glow to your manicure. I would have to say this is my least favorite of the bunch only because it seems harder to pair it with other shades to get a decent, appealing manicure.
