China Glaze Haute Metal

Somehow, this little one slipped away from me while I was reviewing the "Metals" crackle collection from China Glaze.  Haute Metal is a rosey reddish pink crackle that doesn't look good over pink (heh, tried and failed) but I figured I'd try it over my Dr.'s REMEDY Lovely from yesterday.

This is one coat of Haute Metal, topped with Seche Vite.

I think the moral of the story is that this color is best over dark colors.  It gets a bit lost with the purple underneath.

A bit more noticeable in the shade but it reminds me of like an 80s rock candy or Easter egg or something...  Hah I don't know - guess I'm reaching a little bit here.

Finally indoors with the flash.  What is your take on crackle/shatter/graffiti polish?  Is it cool still?  Are you totally over it?  My business cards feature my neon skittle crackle nails and at Cosmoprof North America Las Vegas, a lot of beauty business owners that I gave my card to were mentioning that crackle/shatter is "so over" already.  What's the next big trend?  Will magnetic nail polish make it mainstream?  I do have a lot of that to show you but it's going to be on super nubbins after breaking 3 nails yesterday.  (Fun fun).  Stay tuned!
