Various Brands of Crackling Polish

Yesterday I stumbled across the 4th or 5th brand I have seen of crackle polish.  What do you all think of the various brands that have appeared since O.P.I. came out with Shatter?


For me, I have no tried O.P.I. Shatter or the Blasted at Sephora.  I have never even seen a bottle of Shatter in person since it's hard to find lol.  However, I have tried China Glaze Crackle, Sally Hansen Crackle, and Pure Ice Crackle.  Out of those 3, China Glaze is number 1 in my book.  I have 4 colors from their first set and 4 from their new metallic set.  I am in LOVE with the metallics!

By far OPI shatter is the best i have tried. I have only tried the black one but i have sooooooooo many good things to say about it! For starters it lasts on my nails at least 2 weeks! Which is incredible but on my toes it lasts up to a month! I really have nothing bad to say about it and I'm very pleases with it.

The only ones I've tried were from China Glaze. I was disappointed. I found that they did not crackle very easily whether I put on a thick or a thin coat. I may have to try the OPI!!!! Also, anybody have an opinion on the Sally Hansen?

Re: Various Brands of Crackling Polish

OPI Blasted is by far the best- there's a reason they can't keep it in stock h;aha 😄

I believe I know what will be on my next shopping trip to Sephora now! lol Thank you all for telling me about it!  🙂

Hi Kimmi1115. I have tried the Shattered and the Blasted. I like the Blasted much more. I found Shattered a bit too much to wear all the time and I tired of it pretty quickly. The Blasted is a bit softer but noticeable enough that I've gotten many compliments. I've been using the silver over the 212 and love it (it's been on my nails for about 2 weeks now and I've only repainted once!). I'm planning to get the rest of the colors soon. I was trying to restrict myself to only 3 more but who am I kidding I NEED one of each. 😉

I agree O.P.I blasted is the best that I've tried as well.

Re: Various Brands of Crackling Polish

I love OPI black crackle. I didnt like China Glaze crackle very much. It seems to be very thin.

Re: Various Brands of Crackling Polish

Some of the China Glaze ones are thinner than their other shades.  Is the Sephora OPI blasted polishes good?
