Just when I thought that the crackle-polish trend died out, here comes something new: the China Glaze Crackle Glitters Collection!
I’m curious about the glitter-crackle formula. Will it be thick like a lot of traditional glitter polishes, or will it be thin and easy to work with?
The middle 2 colours, Gleam Me Up (blue) and Glam-More (vivid purple), look really gorgeous.
And the display picture is pretty cool. Look at those luscious purple lips! I just love, love, love dramatic lips like that, but the only time I can pull it off is during Hallowe’en when I dress up as a goth.
What do you think of this collection? Are you still on the crackle bandwagon, or are you ushering it to roll on by?
Note: If/When PR sends me individual bottle pictures, I’ll be sure to post them so you can get a closer look at each shade.

SPARK YOUR SUMMER STYLE!
China Glaze® Introduces Four New Crackle Glitter Polishes for May 2012
Los Angeles, CA – (March 2012): Sparkle all summer long with China Glaze®’s new Crackle Glitters collection. Once again taking crackle technology to the next level, this third-generation polish pairs the edgy innovation of crackling nail lacquer with glamorous glitters. The China Glaze® Crackle Glitters features four shimmering shades including:
- Luminous Lavender: Luscious light purple
- Jade-d: Radiant bright green
- Glam-More: Bold fuchsia
- Gleam Me Up: Bright sky blue
Create glamorously different looks with just one sweep of China Glaze® Crackle Glitters. 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. Brush sideways or on an angle to create different looks. As versatile and edgy as China Glaze®’s biggest celebrity fans (Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie and Kelly Osbourne, to name a few), China Glaze® Crackle Glitters add a spark(le) to one of the hottest nail art trends!
The China Glaze® Crackle Glitters collection will be available as open stock colors and four-piece counter display. Individual polishes retail for $9 MSRP and will be available at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide in May 2012.
