China Glaze Crackle: Broken Hearted

Okay, getting started off right with this crackle obsession and one of my favorite polish brands: China Glaze Crackle. I picked up five of the six - I just couldn't get into the purple and I may find myself regretting it later, but we'll see. I found them at Sally's - they were still in the back!
With Broken Hearted, I hadn't decided what else I wanted to pair it with, but I knew a basic black would look great. Liquid Leather it was.

On the other hand I tried swirling it horizontally and diagonally. I'll have to try that on my swatching hand the next time I do a combo! It's a pretty funky effect.
As to application, very easy. You'll definitely want to wait to apply the crackle topcoat after your base color is dry - thinner coats give more of a crackle whereas thicker coats give less, as you can see from my pinkie finger. These dry pretty quickly and the wear is good with your favorite top coat. I should mention my HG (holy grail) top coat is CND Air Dry.
And that's it! What are your favorite color combos to wear with Broken Hearted, other than black?


  1. Beautiful! I have some upcoming swatches of Broken hearted. I love crackle polishes :)

  2. I do too! They're so much fun. I love the colors China Glaze came up with, I want to play with the other colors too! Looking forward to seeing your color combos with Broken Hearted.
