China Glaze Crackle Metal Polishes

China Glaze is set to release 6 new crackle shades for summer- in METAL formulas! I am kind of surprised this trend is still going so strong; when it got big earlier this year I thought it would just be a one-hit wonder, but both OPI and China Glaze seem to have new collections with these type of polishes coming out regularly. I’m not complaining, as I used the OPI Silver Shatter in almost every manicure I do! I’m really, really excited to see how these look, I love the idea of metal crackle polishes.

NEED: Oxidized Aqua, Haute Metal, Latticed Lilac.

China Glaze Introduces Six New Crackle Glaze Polishes in Sparkling Metallics for Summer 2011

Los Angeles, CA – (June 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.  The China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals collection features six sparkling metallic colors including:

  • · Tarnished Gold: Warm, honeyed hue
  • · Platinum Pieces: Shimmering silver
  • · Haute Metal: Pale pink
  • · Cracked Medallion: Bold bronze
  • · Latticed Lilac: Soft lavender
  • · Oxidized Aqua: Deep aquamarine blue

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.  As versatile and edgy as China Glaze’s biggest celebrity fans (Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie and Kelly Osbourne, to name a few), Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals is sure to be this summer’s hottest beauty trend!

The China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metals collection will be available as open stock colors and 12 piece counter display with a unique Crackle Glaze screen and including an instructional hang tag.

China Glaze is free of DBP, toluene, and added formaldehyde.

    Leesha, a heads up for your fans: If finding china glaze or OPI crackle polishes is a hassle, or spending an extra few dollars doesnt fit into your budget…Sally Hansen will be releasing a line of crackle polishes later this month called Crackle Overcoat. Looks very similar to China Glaze’s collection. Supposedly, there will be a total of 8 colors. Also, Nicole by OPI is releasing a collection of what they call “texture” polishes in July. I’m guessing from the way it’s described that it will be another version of crackle polishes. Thought you may like to know :)

      To chrissy, above, I saw the Sally Hansen crackle polishes at my local Walgreens this month and IMO, blah. They seem to be okay, but nothing special colors- sliver, black, white, red, sapphire, purple, gold, and fuchsia. They remind me of classic Wed N Wild colors, you know, back before companies were making any colors beside pinks, red, browns, and beiges. I think if you want to try a crackle polish and not spend a lot, these would be good to try, but sadly, nothing to hold your breath over. Hope that helps!

        i got the Sally Hansen crackle overcoat and it sucks compared to OPI and China Glaze. i worked 80% better on my toes than my nails though. i had to redo my nails about 3-5 times for each nail to make it look even somewhat similar to the OPI and China Glaze ones. it may have something to do with the fact that the applicator is so skinny and you have to paint over your nails quite a few times before it even covers it all (probably why it was better on my tiny toe nails). the texture of it also get really thick and gooy fast. i definitely would NOT recommend this to anyone but someone who has 4 year old sized nails.
