This crackle nail polish by China glaze is what my dreams are made of! Super easy to apply. Make sure you have a dark base coat underneath so that it really pops when it crackles. Such a fun switch up!

This product definitely worked in crackling and I purchased it during the crackle phase a few years back. The only two negatives about it would be that the polish became gummy and tackier over time, unusually quicker than usual. And also the product hardened overtime. I’m familiar with nail polish and I know over the years they tend to gum up, tack up and harden eventually at the end of their life, but this one did it particularly quicker than usual.

Oh geez I can't say for sure but from what I remember this was the first brand I ever saw do the crackles nail polish! Honestly it was pretty expensive but nail polish that would crack?? Or would crackle? I don't know any girl(and yes some boys) (cough cough Jeffery Starr! Just guessing) that didn't run out to try or buy some. Girls of any and all ages were excited! I was so glad it was even made to look like it wasn't just for little girls

China Glaze Crackle Shatter 6 Bottle Set I purchased this so long ago I can’t remember what site I ordered them from. They came in 2 boxes. 3 bottles in each. They were very cool as far as the science was involved. The colors were all very pretty too.

I absolutely ice the variety of colors that china glaze provides. It’s prices are amazingly low for the quality of the polish. I have so many for all ovations but it never stops a girl from buying more!

I used the polish for Halloween. To get a better effect of my costume.  I was very easy to apply and love the look in gave my nails. This was my first time using crackle nail polish.  I wasn't bad I could see myself using it on a ready day instead of just for  Halloween.

I bought this during the height of the crackle nail polish trend. It was very pretty and worked much better than many of the cheaper options available on the market at the time. I wouldn’t buy it again since it isn’t something I use at all anymore.

I really like china glaze nail polish. It stays on for a long time and they have a million colors to choose from. Easy to apply and is usually good to go with just one coat. I like the variety of colors and the way the finished product looks.

The best crackling polish. Just put one coat over the color and it cracks perfectly. No second coat or need to fuss because it didn't crack enough. Always priced great. Long shelf life.
