It’s fair to say that many of us bloggers are over the whole concept of crackles. I’m not overly concerned about seeing another creme crackle but I must say I was quite excited to be able to try out the newest version from China Glaze, Crackle Metals. Sufficiently different enough for me to want to give them a go and pique my interest.
What we have are six shades of crackle top coat, all muted and soft shades.
Tarnished Gold – a warm, honey tone hue
Platinum Pieces – shimmering silver
Haute Metal- pale pink
Crackle Medallion – bold bronze
Latticed Lilac – soft lavender
Oxidized Aqua – deep aquamarine blue
I struggled for ages to decide which colour to swatch them over. I don’t know why when the answer was right in front of my face with these swatches on the right! Black was the best choice.
Now follows something of a mish mash of swatches, you will probably want to enlarge most of them. All have a glossy top coat on unless otherwise stated.
L-R: Crackle Medallion, Tarnished Gold, Platinum Pieces, Oxidized Aqua and Latticed Lilac.
L-R: Haute Metal, Latticed Lilac, Oxidised Aqua, Platinum Pieces and Tarnished Gold.
Haute Metal with no top Coat.
Oxidised Aqua, Platinum Pieces, Tarnished Gold and Crackle Medallion.
So there we have it. Do any of them take your fancy? I think they are really quite pretty and much more subtle than the usual stark crackle top coats and I’ve got an idea that I might really like these over bright white. Especially the gold and the pink.
At the time of writing I don’t know the prices or UK launch dates but will update as soon as I do.
