Hey everyone! Today I finally have Part 2 of my China Glaze Crackle polish swatches.
Let me just start by saying, I love Crackle, but Crackle doesn't love me! I did these swatches four times - yes FOUR times! Every time I did it, something would go wrong and I would have to re-do them! So these pictures are the ones that I settled on when I got fed up! Once again, I only used China Glaze polishes for this post.
Lightning Bolt over Spontaneous - White creme with crackle polish. This one gave me a bit of trouble. Two things you must do with this polish to ensure it crackles properly: a) Make sure you shake the bottle really well before using it. I don't normally shake polish, but this one needed it because otherwise it was a little runny and patchy; b) Use the thinnest coat possible! If you stick to these rules you will get a great crackle. I didn't, so behold craptastic crackle!
Crackled Concrete over Re-Fresh Mint - Dark grey cream with crackle finish. I originally tried this one over Spontaneous, but there wasn't enough contrast. I really love greys and greens/blues together so I liked this combo.
Broken Hearted over Liquid Leather - Pink cream with crackle finish. This is my joint favourite with Black Mesh. I love the contrast with the black! I have been wearing this for two days! Amazing!
So that's the Crackles done! Which one is your fave out of these three?
