China Glaze Crackle Cracked Medallion

I know, I think of all nail polish fads, the crackle may have become one of the most overdone. I only have a few crackles, but I was definitely excited about the China Glaze Crackle metals. I think after these I'm crackled out. Gold,bronze,black, & white will probably be the extend of my crackle purchases. :P

Cracked Medallion over Barielle Falling Star



Cracked Medallion is a bronze metallic crackle.

Awesome possum! Yes, I just said that. I love how this looks like gold leaf  over the polish. This crackles nicely, unlike some other brand of metallic crackle that stinks -cough- Sally Hansen. I obviously have nothing more interesting to say about this other than I love the look of this. This is a work of art on your nails.

Happy Thursday!

  1. My sister and I say "awesome possum" all the time, but only to each other.

    This is gorgeous! It looks really baroque, like crackling paint on a gaudy picture frame or something. Does that make any sense? Anyway, it's gorgeous and I love the color combo you chose, especially 'cause the glitter in falling star is close in color to the crackle!

  2. Yes! That makes perfect sense, and that's exactly why I love it. I love art history, so anything that has characteristics of antiqued art floats my boat!

  5. I was really hoping you'd post on these (as I know you weren't too happy with the Sally Hansen ones) so I wanted to know what you think... out of all of these this one would be the one I'd want to pick up (when I stumble accross it)... looks A-Mazing!

  7. I love that combination!  I don't have any of the metals yet :(  I really really like the crackles because sometimes you just don't have time to make your mani interesting, and crackle does the work for you :)  It also helps cover mistakes and bubbles!

  8. I love this combo.  I'll be picking my set up tomorrow. After that I don't want another crackle polish unless I can find a yellow or some other unusal colors :)
