This is a really fun polish. The gold is very shimmery, which makes it look like a high end nail polish and the crackle looks great. With a top coat on, this doesn't chip any more than other polishes. Definitely a good buy for the price.
Crackle is actually really cool and fun! I love this brand as well. I like to stick with the same brand on the bottom coat as crackle because I don't like mixing two different chemicals but that's just me)
China Glaze is a great brand. I love the consistency and their crackle is good. I LOVE this gold shade. its glimmery and shimmery. I like to put black or white under. I say you can put any nail polish under but I've heard you get better results with a China Glaze under coat.
