The Crinkled Chrome collection is described by China Glaze as "Chrome meets pastel, giving feminine flair to this crinkled metal look." So here are the swatches!
China Glaze Iron Out The Details is an icy blue metallic chrome polish with textured crinkled looking finish.
Next, China Glaze Crush, Crush, Baby
China Glaze Crush, Crush, Baby is a light lilac metallic chrome polish with textured, crinkled finish.
China Glaze Don't Be Foiled
China Glaze Don't Be Foiled is a gorgeous teal, seaform green metallic chrome polish with textured, crinkled finish. (Colour is much darker & greener in real life).
This is much closer to the actual colour of China Glaze Don't Be Foiled.
Next, China Glaze Wrinkling The Sheet.
China Glaze Wrinkling The Sheet is a very light metallic lime green chrome polish with a textured, crinkled finish.
The green is much more obvious in real life.. I used natural light today and it got the colours all a little too light.
China Glaze I’m Chromatic is a light metallic pink chrome polish with textured, crinkled finish.
Quite a pretty sweet pink!
Last of the collection, China Glaze Aluminate.
China Glaze Aluminate is a silver metallic chrome polish with textured, crinkled finish.
Very pretty & white silver. I guess all the silver polish fans would love this!
I was initially very curious about this collection from it's name "Crinkled Chrome', but after swatching the first bottle, it's quite apparent that there's no chemical reaction.. blah blah.. rocket science behind it.
It's really just tiny beads & bar glitters mixed into the polish to create the 'crinkled' effect. Very much like the rest of China Glaze's textured polishes.
Here's how it looks like half-removed:
As for the application, Chrome polishes are generally smooth and this is no exception. However they do tend to get gooey really quickly.
In the end, I added some thinner to them and they were great after that. Be careful not to add too much or the polish might turn too thin to hold the stuffs (the bar glitters etc..) and they might sink to the bottom (just my guess).
Overall, these polishes gave me a really hi-tech, sci fi feel.. haha! My favourites are Don't Be Foiled (Teal) and Aluminate (Silver)!
So what do you think of this collection? Do you textured lovers love this as well?
