New 2012 China Glaze Glitter Crackle Glaze Swatches!!!

China Glaze has released four new Glitter Crackle Glaze Nail Lacquer top coats and I have the swatches for you today. Just about two weeks ago, I posted a press release announcing these Glitter Crackles. Then I received some high resolution images which made me pretty excited for these as the colors and the glitter looked fun to me.  Today I have the actual items in hand and they're even better than anticipated.
First, let me show you the Glitter Crackles swatched over white on a wheel.  I like to show all crackles and shatters over white to show their true color.  I keep my crackle wheels in with the polishes so that I can easily see what color I want to go with on any given day.  Over the white, I have applied thin coats of the Crackles.  The colors are, from left to right, Luminous Lavender, Gleam Me Up, Jade-d, and Glam-More.

I want to show you the real life bottle shots next so you can see the intensity of the colors.  I think from all the pictures provided, you'll get a great idea of the true colors of these nail polishes.
First up is Luminous Lavender.

Next is Gleam Me Up:

Here we have Jade-d:

And last but not least, we have Glam-More.

For my manicure, I wanted to try the crackle glazes over a pinky toned coral, which seems to be the 'color of the season'.  I chose a new one by Venique called Brighten Your Day.  I like a thicker crackle on my manicure to really set off the contrast with heavy lines, so first, I swatched the colors on a color wheel to see if I liked it.  I've got two images to show you, first without a finishing clear top coat, and the second with a clear top coat over the polishes.

The glitters really dance like the Aurora Borealis once a shiny top coat is applied.  I liked this look so well that I decided to do a similar manicure with all the colors at once.  I applied it very thick.

I found all the colors easy to work with.  I could adjust the crevasses of the crackle easily but using it lightly or with a heavier coat.  The colors are all very pleasing to the eye and will be outstanding over a wide variety of undercoats.  Immediately after my manicure, I went to open a box, and used my nails, (I know, dumb, right?), but it didn't mess up my polish...didn't pop off or anything. 

I imagine most people will wear one color at a time, but I really like this different crackled fingers look for something new and different.  Look for these in stores beginning in May 2012.  I love glitter and I love crackle.  What, I ask you, could be better than combining both in pretty colors?

New Hi-Res Images Of China Glaze Glitter Crackle Glaze Nail Lacquers

Today I have some new high resolution bottle images to share with you from the new collection of China Glaze Glitter Crackles. You may have seen a similar post yesterday but in my enthusiasm, I hit the wrong button so here we go again. :) I'm really looking forward to seeing these. But I have to say, I looooooooong for a black multi-colored glitter crackle!!! Oh please, oh please!!!

So, onto the coming collection...I think seeing the larger images really brings out the glitter in the crackle and makes me even more excited to see these in real life.   The colors are, from top to bottom:  Glam-more,  Gleam Me Up,  Jade-d, and Luminous Lavender.

Just from the bottle shots, I think I'm looking most forward to Glam-more..having a love for all magenta/pink things, it seems like it's right up my alley.  What about you?  Will you rock these Glitter Crackles?  Which one intrigues you the most?
