China Glaze Cracked Medallion Metallic Crackle Glaze

Here’s what China Glaze Cracked Medallion looks like over yesterday’s manicure.  This is the only metallic crackle I picked up because I don’t have a comparable copper color in my collection.  It’s super foily.  Although I like the China Glaze crackle formulas I don’t usually do a shimmer crackle over shimmer base coast.  I think the shimmer bomb distracts from the contrast between the two colors.  Kind of negates the crackle when you can’t see it!  My preferences is to use a creme base with a foil crackle and vice versa.

As with all crackles/shatter polishes you’ll end up with a lumpy and somewhat matte nail surface.  Although I didn’t use it for this pic, a coat or two of clear top coat will smooth it out to a mirror shine.
