I love this colour, I wore it over a bright pink (CG flirty tankini) and it looks really good. I find it doesn't crackle as well as the Barry M pink crackle and it dries really fast, after about doing two nails the brush already started going clumpy :(

Basically a perfect dupe for For Audrey in colour, only the most minute difference can be seen if you look really closely. But as it's a crackle, that's a good thing. Looks great over Lemon Fizz!

This is my favorite crackle nail polish color! I really like the light blue color so I would normally just layer this over a clear nail polish. I can't really find too many colors to layer this on with without it looking weird. 4/5 Stars

I now own close to every China Glaze crackle there are, other than the Platinum, Medallion, and Purple. I like my Tarnished Gold for my metallic choice because it matches all my jewelry and Coach purse. I don't like the Broken Hearted because I find the only way to make it look good is to wear it plain, under only a base coat, thus is why I also didn't order the Purple.
MAYBE I'M GETTING TOO OLD.LOL. I also love these, especially the Crushed Candy, over a clear base coat with a coat or two of Seche Vite on top or SH instant dri. The Tarnished Gold looks good like this too.
I'm finding myself not liking my Lightening Bolt as much as I did as first. It does seem to remind one of 'White Out' and the base color used often shows through it.

I have several crackle polishes and this one is one of my favorites. The formula is great, it's very easy to use, and it cracks perfectly every time! I wear it over many colors, but I think it looks especially nice over greys and coppery or bronzy colors. I always put it over a day old mani, which is usually 2 coats of polish with Seche Vite over the top. In the picture I posted above I wore it over Sally Hansen Grey Area. Love it!

I have many different China Glaze and OPI crackle/shatter polishes and have found that this one didn't crackle as well as others. I don't think this is because of my application because I've got that down pat now, however, this may have just been sitting on a shelf for a while. I love this colour though, like others have said, so similar to For Audrey. I am currently wearing it over OPI "Do you lilac it?" and it looks great over purple. Looking forward to trying more combinations.

Cute color, almost the same shade as For Audrey. Makes cool looking color combinations. I like it over pink. :)

Okay so winter time is here and I refuse to pay for a manicure so I bought the black China glaze to go under the crushed candy and I must say that I am in love with the combination. My nails look professionally done and I love the outcome. I would def buy this nail polish again I also did my feet as well and it looks amazing. It crackled better when I blew on it though.

This is deffinately a crackle dupe of For Audrey. It's a beautiful colour with easy aplication and nice cracking. HOWEVER: This colour looks good with FEW base colours. It looks nice over black, however, sometimes it the black can sort of show up through it and it looks a bit messy, so for that combo black crackle looks better over For Audrey. It looks nice over silver (I used SH Celeb City) but it's not very contrasting, and finally I used it over white, which although looks okay, is not something I would wear.
I would not buy this again, NOT because it's bad, but because the only colour combo I really liked with it was black which looks better with black crackle over for audrey.
This crackle gets very goopy! I've only had mine maybe a month of two and only used it a couple of times NEVER leaving the lid off and it's gone all goopy, the brush is in shocking condition and it's barely workable. While this was a good polish - it does NOT keep well.

I love this one! It is basically a crackle version of For Audrey, one of my favorite colors by China Glaze (a Tiffany box blue/robin's egg blue). The application really could not be any easier. The brush is very easy to wield, the consistency is on the thicker side but not to the point where it makes it difficult to use, and you can experiment with how much to use. I like using one thin coat.
Can be used on all skin tones, all nail lengths, and a variety of base polish colors.

This is a really nice almost more robin's egg nest blue than the aqua that it looks in the bottle. Adds some grown up fun to a nice neutral. Tip for applying: apply quickly using quick strokes or else you won't get the horizontal crackles. It will only be verticals and that just looks like tiger stripe or somethingl.

Crushed Candy is probably my favorite in the China Glaze crackle collection. The color is basically identical to For Audrey and looks amazing with pinks, greens, oranges, and yellows. Or even a darker blue! The crackle effect is very fun and depending on the thickness it is applied with can look a variety of different ways. They're very fun to experiment with and I would definitely recommend them

Crushed Candy is a strange, light, turquoisey blue-green color.
This has a crazy effect... some nails have that chunky squared-off crackle effect, but some have a weird (still cool) long, slashy streaks. I tried this over a whole bunch of colors and found that black, silver, or white looks the best with it.
It looks like a really expensive manicure treatment (like those new, weird press on patterns for nails without being all lame and see-through and expensive.) It dries super matte with a horrible raw porcelain texture, so do try a topcoat or two!
