I loved the chromes. I have quite a few of them. They always lasted long and covered in one coat but I always did two. I have an issue with the bottle and not being able to see how much product is left. I know they have the chrome pens that are suuuper expensive but the original chromes will always have a place in my heart.
this is a medium grapey purple with silver microglitter. I LOVE this color. I just put it on today I did 3 coats and got it opaque. I am sure I will update with longevity. I rarely have a problem with chipping but I will update.
Polishes -China Glaze - Crackle Glaze - Black Mesh
Anya1976 3/10/2011 1:36:00 AM
I really like black mesh. I have OPI's shatter and honestly see no difference in the crackle and the shatter. I just put it on so I can't say for the wear. I wear a topcoat over it though so I don't see why it wouldn't last. I still need to master getting it crack uniformly. I did notice that my brush did not get as goopy per use as my shatter did so that is a plus. I like china glaze's brush more than opi's. I have more narrow nail beds so the pro wide brush and I generally are not friends. Maybe the crackle is a little bit on the thinner side BUT I generally like a medium thick coat cus I have found that crackles the best.
From the 2011 Tronica collection. I normally give china glaze a 5 for overall rating but I am kinda bummed out. I have used other holo polishes and never have they chipped so fast. I use nail magic as my base coat and seche vite as my topcoat and I had chips even a day later (and with those two products under and over my mani's have lasted at least 7 days) I was hoping for a more linear holo effect as well but the subtle holo effect is pretty. This polish is a very pretty teal color. I am in love with teals and turquoises anyway and am glad I got it but I polished my nails tuesday and have had to fix chipped nails at least 3 or 4 times already. I like how fast holo polishes dry though. So that is a plus. I got all 12 tronica colors. I will use them but I need to find a base and topcoat that will keep them on my fingers without having to constantly touch up or redo nails. I took a lippie off for the chipping, and another for not being as holo as I hoped. I may get a back up of this color just because it's so pretty so yes, I would buy again even though it's a limited color.
I've worn Broken Hearted for 7 days.With a topcoat it does stay on no problem. I haven't worn the crackle's without one. I have the OPI black shatter and I really don't see any difference with application. thin coats get smaller thinner cracks and a thicker coat gets you less bigger cracks. I usually do a medium coat. I like the bigger cracks. It all depends on how much pressure you put on the brush too. I have found (even with OPI) the nails I am holding up in the air or not really putting pressure on when applying i get barely any cracks. So keep that in mind when applying. It does dry as fast as the OPI so you need to work fast. ETA: I have not had a huge problem with the polish getting goopy. I think my OPI shatter had more issues after one application getting goopy and thick on the brush than ChG. BUT like with OPI the faster you polish your nails the better since the polish on the brush does not stay in contact with air as long and has less chance to get goops.
Granted I just got this today. I could not wait to do my nails. I did a few nails too thin with the shatter polish. I see the shatter effect better on the thicker applied nails. I applied over china glaze turned up turquoise and Pink voltage. My nails were dry which with matte polishes like neons they dry pretty quickly.I will be using this shatter polish over the next few mani's to try it out over different colors. I am excited.
been using this for like 3 or 4 months now and I have seen results in my nails, which is why i started taking it. I was taking 2,500 mcg but am now taking 5,000mcg. i am not acne prone and have not seen any pimples. I would def buy again.
I love this color.I am generally not a red lover but i got this in one of the holiday packs. I used this color when I tried water marbling the first time. I only did my pointer finger and ring fingers for the marble but the rest of the fingers i used this color and I really fell in love with it. I marbled phat santa and jolly holly I wanted to use a white to get a candy cane effect but the white I had was not marbling well so I just used the two colors. this color marbled very well in case anyone wants to try it. I had 7 days wear with minor tipwear. I don't think I had any chips at all. I did this a week or so before christmas.
love this. I love this color. It's a very shimmery fiery orange color. With a good base coat and my topcoat it lasted a week with minor tipwear and I don't think I had chips at all. I have longer narrow nail beds and I hate opi's brush. I always get polish on my skin no matter how hard I try to be careful especially on my pinky nails. If this wasn't a LE color I would be buying again. I do also have a mini bottle that I got in the little teasers set So i guess I am good for awhile though :)
while I dont think this polish is worth the 10 dollar price tag, I do like it. I wore it 2 weeks ago for 7 days with minor tipwear and pretty much no chips. I did have to use 4 coats to get it nice and even. I do love all the different colors you see. Reminds me of my HG sally hansen nail prisim turquoise opal polish. That was a more blue/purple base than this but you saw the color changing just as much.
Polishes -China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise 849237

loooooooooooove neon colors. I put this on my toes two weeks ago and I still love it. I put a coat of fairy dust over it for a little extra something. Dries flat like all neon's i've used but that's ok I like to use shiny top coats. If I use this up I will be buying again.
I love this stuff. I don't rec it to everyone. BUT it does work for me. I've used it now for just over 2 months. I have had breaks here and there BUT this stuff helps grow out my nails pretty darn fast and it's winter my nails usually grow so slowly in the winter time. Right now except for my thumbs that have had some bad breaks my nails are as long or longer than when I'd get them done with acrylic or gel. I hate to say it works but it really really does. Since it does contain toulene and formaldehyde you need to make the choice for yourself. For me it works and it works wonderfully.
I bought this ages ago just never used the silver. I used it today since it's new year's day. I went out to dinner and wanted a bit of sparkle on my eyes. I used it over UD's 24/7 zero. I found I liked it better as a thicker line above the black line. I did a skin toned matte shadow, I wasn't going all out but I just wanted to line my eyes do some mascara and get out the door. I love the brushes on this liner. This is very buildable. you can just do one thin line with a hint of glitter and silver or you can build up to a pronounced silver line. I may be using this more this year now that i've finally used it. I have a few other glitters but I generally don't use them much... I think now I will.
This is such a pretty polish. I love it. The red and silver glitter. I could not stop looking at my nails when I used it. I had 7 days of wear with barely a chip, had some usual tip wear though. I used about 3 coats. I would buy again.

I love this stuff. I use it over my topcoat and it does work. I just wish sally beauty supply still carried it. I need to find another bottle.
