Happy Monday, reader! Remember crackle polishes? Today I dug out an old polish, one of my first-ever China Glazes and one that crackles, no less. Sometimes I forget how long I’ve been doing this nail polish thing, and this polish comes as a stark reminder. This is China Glaze’s Gleam Me Up with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer‘s Lighthouse on the Lake.
Lighthouse on the Lake, this beautiful deep blue creme, has been a big player in my collection recently. I’ve used it as undies for glitter swatches and nail art, and it always looks great with whatever I pair it with. That’s really true for every BEGL creme, but this is the one I’ve used most often.
Gleam Me Up is blue glitter crackle madness. I don’t even hate this polish. The glitter is dense enough that the crackle effect is crisp, but lets enough of the base color through so that everything is uniform. Honestly, it’s a fun combo. I kind of want to get some other crackles out to see what I’ve been missing.
Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers are available from their online shop; BEGL is currently on hiatus while the maker is on maternity leave (!!!). China Glaze polishes are sold in stores.
The name fits the design perfectly! I love the color (reminds me of the ocean) and the name provides imagery.
ooh, I didn’t know crackle came in glitter! This is awesome!
That’s really neat! I didn’t realize they made glitter crackle polish.
I actually like this crackle!!! First time ever!!! Bravo!!!
Oh my!!! Crackle!!! I haven’t brought that out in so long. Totally loving it here
Oh man, crackle polish! Most of my ChG Crackles have dried out … I don’t know if I just didn’t keep them sealed up right or what but I hated throwing them out. I love the blue on blue – perfect for themed nights!
crackle! I love crackle, I dont care who knows it.
I love the pretty glowy blue shimmer
Pretty shade but I never did get the crackle phase.
This crackle is so stunning!
Wait! Is glitter crackle actually a thing?! I don’t remember this at all!
I think I actually have this crackle or had! And a pink one!
really crackle madness is visual treat ..creativity at its best
So fun! I had no idea the crackle came in glitter!
This is fun! The name of your post made me giggle 🙂
I threw away my crackles a couple years ago. Most of them were dried all the way out. So disappointing because I really like that stuff.
This is cool. Crackle polishes take me back to my nail polish infancy 🙂
