China Glaze Tarnished Gold

Moving on down the line with more crackle polish - here is Tarnished Gold from the Metallic Crackles that China Glaze is coming out with this summer.  I decided to try it over my existing Nicole by OPI "One Time Lime" manicure.  I was going for kind of an antique jade - Egyptian like look and I really think these two colors hit it home for me.

This color cracked pretty well for me with just one thin coat.  I like how on the middle finger, it's more broken up and the rings finger is more in shards.

This was an accidental indirect sun picture but I think it looks really lovely as well - the green really peeks out beautifully.

In the shade the gold tends to reflect more light off other items and I almost feel like I have red lobster hands but I think it's just the lighting.  

And finally indoors with the flash and you can see how foil-y this polish is.  Definitely a fan of gold crackle which is odd since I'm not a fan of gold polish.

China Glaze can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe BeautySally's Beauty Supply, and TransDesign.

  1. i'm torn between getting a gold shatter or a silver shatter. i suppose i'll get both!

  2. WOAH. The gold shatter would look AWESOME over a pink or peachy nail color. That polish cracks amazingly.
