(Crushed Candy overTart Deco)
(Black Mesh over Funny Face)
Well, I'm not going to say I went on an epic journey in search of OPI's Shatter (part of the Katy Perry collection) because that would make me sound crazy. And I'm not crazy. Ok, fine, I'm a little crazy. Their shatter polish is close to impossible to find. And I searched....several locations. It was exhausting. So I conceded the fact that I wasn't destined to test this one out. Then I read that China Glaze (love them) was coming out with six crackle polishes.
So I set out on a new search thinking these would be much easier to find. Sadly, that was not the case. After searching every Sally Beauty in a 20 mile radius (right back to the crazy), I let my fingers do the walking online. Success! I found the full collection on Amazon. So I ordered Black Mesh (black) and Crushed Candy (turquoise).
When they arrived on my doorstep, I already had Essie's Tart Deco (best coral ever) on. And even though I knew I was heading in the direction of a dilapidated South Beach art deco building I put the turquoise over the coral. Holy 80's! But I have to admit I loved it.
My next color combo was Essie's Funny Face (hot pink) and Black Mesh. Which I'm currently wearing. And let me say, this stuff has some wearing power. Admittedly, I feel like I'm back in high school rocking these crazy nails but I really like it. It's fun. And why can't we as adults have a little fun? Plus this is definitely an attention-grabber. It's solicited no fewer than six rave reviews in the last couple of days.
If you are a crackle addict, I suggest you snap these up quickly because as with OPI's Shatter, China Glaze Crackle is limited edition. Get cracking! (Pun intended.)
