My Picks from the China Glaze Crinkled Chrome Collection

Today I've got three polishes from the China Glaze Crinkled Chrome collection to show you! I saw some swatches on a nail wheel online somewhere last year before they came out and before I even heard about the collection, and I was almost disgusted. Textured, wrinkly, bumpy chromes?! Wtf, right? But then I saw some better swatches from some bloggers and I changed my mind. I still am not sure if I am in love with them, but I definitely don't hate them.

All of these had the same formula/consistency so I'll tell you about them collectively. I had heard that these work best when using only one coat so that's what I did for all of the swatches. Two coats would make them too thick and chunky, therefore it's convenient (and probably planned) that they are so opaque in one. They have nice metallic chrome bases and are filled with the little sand-like bits that are usual for texture polishes and some string glitter that beefs up the coarseness even more. They are thick but easy to paint with. They dried quickly and were nicely reflective once dry.

Aluminate is a chrome silver. I kind of adore this one.

Crush, Crush, Baby is a gorgeous lavender. My favorite of the three.

I'm a Chromantic is a rose pink. I thought I would like this one more but I don't care for it with my skin tone.

I think most people have a strong reaction to this collection, either love or hate, but my verdict is that they are pretty cute. The other colors in the collection include a sea foam green, a light blue and a light teal. I might want to get the green but I can live without the others.

Tell me what you think about this crazy texture collection! Do you love them or hate them? You can buy China Glaze polishes from Sally Beauty Supply and Ulta as well as from etailers like Transdesign.
