back on crack: china glaze - fault line

Hey guys!
Because of all the hype over the new China Glaze Crackle Metals I decided to post a crackle mani from a few weeks ago.

I don't think I'm going to get all the Crackle Metals. I want the gold one but that's about it, I think.
I feel like if I bought them all, they would probably only get used once.
I bought all the first set of CG Crackles (besides the black) and I have only used 2 of them on a regular basis. Out of the other three, 2 of them got used once, and one not at all.
How many crackles can you need?

This manicure was the first and only time I've used the purple crackle, China Glaze - Fault Line.

This is over OPI - Mermaids Tears.
These crackles dry matte, and I really hated the look of this one matte. So I added Seche Vite!

Much nicer! But flash likes to make this look nothing like what it actually looks like.

That's better. I really liked this combo.

I like the shade of the purple but I wish it cracked a little more.

The color of this one is similar to Senorita Bonita.

Okay, I wrote all of this post, except this paragraph, 6 hours ago. And I spent that time in the hospital with my mom. We were convinced she fractured her ankle and it took 6 hours for them to tell her it wasn't broken and to put a bandage on it. Sigh.
I was going to make this post a bit more interesting, but now I'm too annoyed. Haha!


  1. I LOVE this crackle! I'm wearing it over SH Chartreuse Chase right now and it is the PERFECT combo! I wish it hadn't chipped so much when I was playing pool last night (yeah, I don't know how it happened either) or I would leave it on longer!

  2. I love this mani when it's nice & glossy ! The color combo is nice as well .

  3. Pretty! agreed I like it shiny. :)

  4. Haha I have a mani with fault line in my archive, but it doesn't meet my 'standards' so I haven't post it yet. I also wish it cracked more. I hope your mom's ankle feels better soon!

  5. I want this because it's purple. <3
    Also i don't own any of the crackle anything yet. And i'm starting to believe that i NEED them

  6. It looks better when it's shiny, I agree. :)

  7. Love the mani, dislike the hospital wait.

  8. It's so weird, for everyone else Fault Line crackles the worst, but out of all my China Glaze crackles, for me it crackles the best! o.O

  9. Beautiful purple! I've got 4 crackles (Sally Hansen), and I think that's all I need.

  10. Nice crackle, I love the colour of this =] And it seems to have cracked quite well on your nails! Other posts where i'v seen it show it hardly cracked with a line or two down the middle and that's it!
    And aww well at least your mum's ankle isn't broken! =]

  11. I love the purple crackle over the grey, very nice color combo.
    Glad to hear your mum wasn't hurt better to waste six hours than to have a broken ankle. (check out my 1st giveaway)

  12. There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.
