Trend Week: The Crackle Polish


This week I wanted to focus on a few past and present trends in polish. Today we have the crackle polish. 

***Word of warning, well, not really, but this week my photos were taken out of order, so today I have nubbins, tomorrow I don't. Sorry, but wanted the trends to be in order that they appeared on the market****

Oh man, when I first got into polish crackle was the new "it" thing! How cool is that!? It's like it's alive! And after a few months.....the crackle trend died down, way down. I'm sure you all have one or two (or more) tucked away in a drawer never to see the light of day or the flash of a camera again. Am I right?


These are two China Glaze Crackles: Cracked Concrete and Crushed Candy. I just recently acquired these two a few months ago. Huh? Who still sells crackles? Not too sure, I was given these two by the beauty supply store I go to. Buy two China Glaze polishes and get a crackle for free! He told me that he had bought too many, that he thought the trend would last longer, and now he is stuck with a ton! And hey, I'm not going to deny him giving me free polish! :)

But I kind of like these two colors, especially the grey one! Shocking, I know! :)


Here is what I used as my base colors (with flash): China Glaze For Audrey and China Glaze Recycle (both one coat!).

Stay tuned for tomorrow's past trend! What is it going to be?

(Oh and sorry about the nubbins going on here, stupid Target Cafe chairs are too heavy and broke two nails way down, so had to even them out as best as I could)

  4. I totally never got into this trend, myself, but your nails really jumped out at me :) I like the different colors, and while I'll still never do it, you make it look really fun. Super cute on your nail shape, too :)

  5. I love the colors but I am really over crackle polishes. It does look good but I think it is boring now. I saw them too much when it was a trend.

  6. I love the mani! Those colors are great together. I was over the crackle craze pretty much as soon as it began but somehow I still ended up with several of them lol

  7. I never did like the crackle trend myself, but I say go for it if you do like it. Trend shmend. I was a kid in the 80s and 90s and never stopped loving neon colors--I'm so glad they're selling them again. :)
