Swatch & Review - China Glaze Cracked Medallion


Hello, polish lovers! In honor of the new year and my new blog design, I'm going to be cleaning out my swatch folder. For the next few days, I'll be putting up all the swatches I did over the year (and a few nail arts), that just didn't make it on to the blog! Oops. :)

********************

To showcase China Glaze Cracked Medallion, I layered it over the beautiful (but problematic) Sally Hansen Barely Blue Bell.


This is an excellent bronze metallic crackle from the China Glaze Metals collection. I love the China Glaze crackles. I feel like they are so easy to work with and you get the fun horizontal cracks as well as the vertical ones. I use a pretty thick coat, because I like my cracks big! 



I grabbed this on clearance and I see it like that all over the place! If you still have a spot in your heart for crackles, I totally recommend the Metals collection.

I love nail polish! It's a fabulous creative outlet for me! When I'm not painting my nails, I love cuddling with my kitties, hanging with Boyfriend, playing games, and watching/reading sci-fi and fantasy.
