China Glaze Metal Crackle skittles

I went to Sally’s and they had an almost full display of the metallic crackles! I picked up Latticed Lilac, Haute Metal, and Oxidized Aqua. I tried them over my current Essie Braziliant mani I posted earlier.

And this is my right hand:

Oxidized Aqua, Haute Metal, Latticed Lilac, Oxidized Aqua

I really like these crackles! I did thin coats and they applied and crackled well. Haute Metal and Latticed Lilac look very similar in the pictures but they are different in person. Since these are a little paler/lighter and not as bold as creme crackles I think they would look better over a bright colored polish. I think they all look good over Braziliant, my favorite is Oxidized Aqua! 🙂

NOTD: Essie Braziliant

Hello, today I have another Essie from their summer collection, it’s the collection’s namesake, Braziliant.

It’s a bright orange (not neon) with pink shimmer, I don’t think the shimmer comes through in the picture, it’s more obvious in the bottle than in the nail. I did two coats, the formula was a little thick but not too bad.
