China Glaze Crackle Metals - Tarnished Gold - swatch and review

I have more crack for you today.
I only wanted one of the colors from the new crackle metals - Tarnished Gold.
While the other colors from the collection are nice, I decided not to get them because I probably would use them once and then forget about them. But gold is a pretty versatile color I think, I'll get more use out of it.

When I got this crackle, I was already wearing China Glaze - Shower Together.

Shower Together is a really pretty teal-hued blue, 2 coats.
I let it dry completely, and added Tarnished Gold.

I found that it crackled well without any fussing.

It dries to a semi-matte finis, like most crackles, so I like to add topcoat.

With topcoat, it gets much more sparkly and it even brightens the gold color.

I'm really pleased with the formula on this one, so I would recommend getting this if you want a gold crackle!

Is your crack addiction still going strong?


  1. Ah I have this and haven't swatched it yet! Love it and love the combo of teal and gold!

  2. I like it!

    And I still like the crackle. I think I am mostly addicted to watching it shatter. I find it really mesmerizing to watch.

  3. Really pretty, I like the color combo.

  4. VERY nice combo! I haven't been able to get the gold one yet, but I'm still looking!

  5. I love this! The gold crackle over the blue was an AMAZING choice!

  6. Wow this is a very nice color combo .

  7. Rebecca, this is awesome! Killing colour combo. I don't have a huge crack addiction, but certainly liking the effect!

  8. I'm glad I ordered this one, I love wearing blue and teal so I will probably use this quite a lot :)
