Color Club 2011 Fractured Collection and my NOTD for Pink Wednesday!

Hey everyone!!! This past Friday I was THRILLED to come home to a package from Color Club, containing 3 of their crackles from their 2011 Fractured Collection. I love surprises :) Kim & Beth sent me these 3 to try out, review and so I could show you guys! As we all know, crackle polish is HUGE right now, and I do also know that not everyone loves it, but I do, so I couldn't wait to play. I will say that silver crackle is a HUGE yay for me. Anyways, I'll get to the pretties.

Here are the 3 they sent me,
L-R
Clean Break, Broken Tokens & Smash Hit

































 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I wanted to choose a color to use as a base for all 3 that would stand out, so I went looking for a red, and chose China Glaze Ruby Deer.

 
























 

I then waited for that to dry completely, and did a fairly thin coat
of Broken Tokens. For larger cracks, just do a thicker layer, and for smaller, do a thinner layer.

 























I then re-did the red and used Smash Hit
























and here is Clean Break























 

I then loved the silver shatter, Broken Tokens so much, that I chose it for my ALMOST pink mani, lol. So I started with 2 coats of Color Club Ms.Socialite

 



















and then added Broken Tokens on top. Sooooo sparkly :) I got so many compliments through out the day, from strangers, on this mani :)














I have to say, I might actually prefer the Color Club formulas, to the rest so far. It wasn't as thick, and IMO, much easier to use/control. There are 3 more in this collection, a fuchsia, blue and gold. I'm excited to see the blue, and what shade it is!

  6. I have to say that I am one of the very few who really doesn't like crackle polish at all. Just looks thick and messy to me! Have to say the red and black is almost ok to me! Sorry Erika" no dis to you!

  7. You are no alone Fingers, I do not like the crackle polishes either, maybe I am too old, but I think they look harsh on me.

    However, I like the way the black/red combo look on you Erika.

  12. I love the silver crackle! I got one from Claire's. I find that I use it more than I do CG. It is also not as thick. Maybe it's the sparkle. My CG black crackle is already thick after just 2 uses. I want to try the Sally Hansen ones....

  17. I was disappointed when I saw the colors that color club choose. I already have all of them. I was hoping for orginal ones like green or something :(

  18. I LOVE that black crackle. It looks better than OPI's. The OPI one just looks diseased. XD

  19. I can't believe how much mileage this trend is getting!?!

    I do like the red/black combo the best as many others have commented.

    I keep going back every once in awhile to do a crackle mani, but usually end up taking it off and switching to something else...

  21. I loved all your combos ! Especially the purple/silver one, I have to give it a try !
    I don't know if I'll get those crackles ... I have all those shades in other brands, some have great formulas and some don't ... I'm really hesitating :)
