China Glaze Crackle Collection 2011: Cracked Concrete

China Glaze Cracked Concrete (1 coat) over China Glaze Pelican Gray (2 coats)

Oh Daylight Savings time, how I love and hate you. I love you because I love more hours of sun in the evening, but I hate you because I lost an hour of sleep and it is now almost 3 in the afternoon! Where has this day gone?! Oh well, I'll take it because that means that spring is upon us (at least for those of you in this area of the world). 

Today I have the final crackle from China Glaze called Cracked Concrete which I think is witty. I've showed you previously how vastly different colors look with the crackle effect, so with this last one I thought I'd show you how it looks with colors of the same family. Since I just used Pelican Gray and still had Cracked Concrete to swatch, I decided to see what happens. Also, I love using these crackles when I have a small chip in my polish because 9 times out of 10 it covers up any flaws I had. What do you think of this combination? Feel free to leave me a comment to let me know.

I really like the subtle contrast between the colors of the crackle and the base. It looks a little sophisticated, which is nice too. Nice job! :)

Grey on grey is good. I don't like colourful crackles so this mani really suits me. My only beef with the China Glaze crackles is that they look very thick. Models Own are launching their own version here in the UK and I am hoping they will be better.

Thanks for the comments!

Mah_isoka, most of the online e-tailers are sold out of this, but I think you can still find them on Amazon or Sally Beauty Supply (if you are in the US). Good luck in your search. If not, no worries because Sally Hansen is coming out with Crackles in June.

I love this combination! I hope I can still find some of these next time I'm in the nearest town with a Sally Beauty Supply.

but I love this gray crackle. I haven't seen that many monochromatic crackle manis but i like it!

Oh man, I totally feel the same way about daylight savings time. When I found out that we already had to spring forward...I was not happy. I like falling back a lot more. heh.

Dude, I love the gray on gray color combo. I've been eyeing this crackle for a while..and I really like the way it looks with Pelican Gray. :]
