Hi loves! Ready for some.. weird polishes :-P? The China Glaze Crinkle Chrome collection surely got attention when released, and most of it has not been positive. The combination of the chrome finish and the added texture didn't please everyone and I'll admit I wasn't sold on the idea either. But, when putting these on, I was fascinated. I am still not the biggest fan, but I can't say I hate them either! So, ready to take a look?
First, let's talk about the formula, since it was identical for all 3 shades. These are extremely pigmented. Like, you don't even have to be careful one-coaters. The pigment is so amazing I kinda wish they'd be available in non texture too as stamping would be perfect with these! They applied very easy, and the texture is easy to spot, especially the barglitter. You don't want to a second coat as it might clump together and then the effect gets uglier in my opinion.
Removal was easy but I didn't let them harden - just push down a soaked cotton pad and wait a minute or so, it'll slide off your nail easily. Since you only need 1 coat and no topcoat these are done quickly.
Aluminate is a silver polish. Just a straight up silver, nothing special about that, but I think it combines best with the texture effect. Very futuristic.
Crush, Crush Baby is a lavender shade. I love the softness of this one combined with the chrome finish.
Don't Be Foiled is a soft teal color. I thought I would love this the most but I prefer Crush, Crush Baby over this one!
That's it, my 3 picks from the Crinkle Chrome collection! I must say I was more impressed with these than I would have thought before getting them, but I don't feel the need to own the other 3.
What do you think of this collection? And if you had to pick one, which one would be your choice?
