China Glaze Chrinkled Chromes


I know that I haven't really jumped on the texture bandwagon, but I do see the aesthetic beauty in some versions.  While I appreciate China Glaze trying to reinvent the trend with a crumbled foil look a la Chrinkled Chromes, I have to say unequivocally that I just don't get these.  Do they look exactly as they are marketed?  Yes.  Are they wearable?  It's all relative, but still yes.  Are they nice?  You tell me...

Each swatch is only one coat.  These chromes are super opaque and not streaky at all.

Are these new textures your thing?  Or can we move past them quickly and pretend they never happened?  Let me know in the comments!

  4. I have to agree that these polishes are a fail. While they might look cool in a skittle mani once, I would not waste my polish money on them when I could get something I would use more.

  6. Up close, these are nasty. But from far away, they look so cool and crinkled! I probably won't be picking any up though.

  7. I'm kind of on the fence...at first glance they look kind of weird..like nails not painted properly kind of weird but after staring at the swatches for awhile..it's kind of growing on me.

  8. I assume that many people feel that way.

  9. I'm like you in that I don't really get these. I appreciate that CG is doing something different here, but they just kinda look like bubbly polish to me.

  10. Yes, I appreciate the ingenuity but the execution was a bit of a fail.

  11. these completely repulsed me at first, but they're kind of growing on me. not sure if i'd actually buy any, but they aren't as awful as i'd first seen. i don't think i'll like them if they end up with crazy colors, but these few you have up don't look that bad.

  13. I'm on the fence about these. They look cool, but maybe not for me...Your swatches look fantastic though :D
