China Glaze Crackle Glaze Polishes (swatches & demonstration)

There has been a lot of talk recently about Crackle polishes. OPI has come out with a black and now China Glaze has jumped on the bandwagon with many colors. When the OPI came out, I knew that the China Glaze were coming out shortly after so I don't have that one. Crackle polishes aren't a new development, they were popular in the 90s and are now making a comeback! In terms of applying the polish and getting the ideal crackle pattern, practice makes perfect. It takes repition to get it down to how you like the gaps and crackles.

First I would like to show you a demonstration of the China Glaze Black Mesh so you can see it in action:

Here is the end result of the video:

I wanted to show the Black Mesh crackle polish over a variety of finishes of nail polish:

(left to right): Color Club Pucciliscious (cream), Zoya Trixie (shimmer), Zoya Charla (glittery)

with Black Mesh over top: (left to right) Color Club Pucciliscious, Zoya Trixie, Zoya Charla

Here is a full manicure of Black Mesh over Zoya Trixie

I wanted to thank Nouveau Cheap for the format on this post. She had done a review on the Barry M crackle polish and used the format of video demonstration and showing the crackle over a variety of nail polish finishes. Just want to give credit where it is due; thank you G!

You can purchase the China Glaze Crackle Glaze at Sally's Beauty Supply and etailers (even though it is sold out on a lot of them =[ )

What do you think of this new crackle polish trend? Did you get any of the crackle polishes that came out? How do you like them?

Since I haven't been keeping up with everything lately, I did not know what the big fuss was about the crackle polishes. It does look interesting but I won't get upset if I can't find it (like with Perplex...which I am still sad about, lol)

I've had the Barry M since October and totally fell in love! Im kind of bummed that it's going to be so readily available so it won't be "unique" anymore but I LOVE the fact that China Glaze has come out with colors instead of just black (I got all of them at Sally's this past Sunday!). I also love the silver one coming out in OPIs Spring collection!
