The color lineup is:
Black Mesh - A plain black
Cracked Concrete - A creamy medium grey
Lightning Bolt - A stark white
Fault Line - A shimmery purple
Broken Hearted - A medium pink
Crushed Candy - A light pastel blue

Aaand here we go!

Fault Line over China Glaze White on White

These new polishes are remniscent of the Cover Girl crackle polishes from forever ago. I only owned one and it was a funky grassy green. It never looked right because it was so thin, but these China Glaze Crackle glazes are fantastic!

These do take some getting used to. Firstly, you MUST let your base color dry fully. Next, you do need to work quickly with these because they dry very fast. These are not for the nail perfectionist. I just slop the color on evenly as possible, don't try to cover the whole nail seamlessly, and don't try to double dip and layer because by the time you come back the polish will be halfway through it's drying process. These NEED a top coat, unless you like the matte finish they have.

I've been reading reviews of these polishes and a lot of people are having difficulties. I read one review that said the purple didn't crack much, if at all. But as you can see, mine cracked a ton! I tested them all and had no problems at all. So if you purchase, test them out and be a tiny bit patient.

And this is my right hand, just to show you how it cracked on my other hand.
Overall, I'm so excited that crackle polish has been re-released! It's such a fabulous grungy, messy and funky way to liven up your regular manicures!!
