China Glaze Latticed Lilac

As soon as the Metallic Crackles showed up at my front door, I grabbed Latticed Lilac - the metallic dusty purple (or soft lavender)... because as I've mentioned - I'm a huge fan of purple.  Because I figured this would look best over black, I only used a base coat of e.l.f. Black.  Now, there is something in this formula that if you add your top coat too soon, the crackle pulls up on itself, wrinkling.  And well, that's what happened to me.

Now you just have to take my word for it, but these look a million times better in person.  OPI's Silver Shatter is the SAME THING.  I've seen it on the other blogs and went "meh" but then I put it on my nails and WOW.  It was soooooooo beautiful but photographs horribly.  HORRIBLY!

However, in shade this color loses it's purple for me and it's just lots of silver foil metallic sparkle.  Sad panda.

Indoors withe the flash and you can see the purple again but still... this color just didn't hit it for me over black.  I'm excited to see it over other colors in my collection, especially a blue (like maybe China Glaze Sea Spray?)

Sorry friends - not a great review from me.  This color just didn't hit me the way I wanted it (but I have good news for others in this collection!).

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