Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat swatches and review

Another day, another crackle polish for you all! This time it's Sally Hansen who have released their Crackle Overcoat collection in 8 colourful shades. Today I have two of the shades for you - Fractured Foil and Antiqued Gold.

What they say:

"Crackle Overcoats for endless color effects. Always at the forefront of innovative head to toe beauty, Sally Hansen presents the latest in statement-making nails - the new Crackle Overcoat. Available in eight show-stopping shades, each color offers a custom crackle design for instantly intricate nails, no salon visit necessary.

"With Crackle Overcoat the color combo possibilities are endless!" says Sally Hansen manicurist Alison Bowhill-Hayes. "For daytime I love an understated crackle - think nude nails topped with Antiqued Gold - and at night I take it up a notch topping black polish with Distressed Denim.

Onto the swatches! Here I've swatched them over a black and a white creme with no topcoat. I should have taken some pics with topcoat also as it just makes the crackle sparkle like crazy! On another note, the alternating black and white looks FANTASTIC as a mani. I almost didn't want to cover it up with crackle lol.

Fractured Foil is a sparkly silver foil-ish crackle. It looks a lot like OPI Shatter in Silver but at a more wallet friendly price. I think it looks great over the black and over the white creme gives a nice subtle effect.

Antiqued Gold is a very pretty gold crackle. I love the way it looks over the white creme! It looks so elegant and would have made a nice festive manicure.

Overall: I am loving this new addition to the Sally Hansen range! This nail art obsessed blogger loves when brands bring out nail art products to their core lines! The Crackle Overcoats applied very easily and crackle quickly leaving a matte finish. Both are very pigmented and a thin to medium coat is all that's needed for a good crackle effect. As with other crackle/shatter polishes, you need to work fairly quickly. To get the best results, apply your desired base colour and wait a few minutes before applying Crackle Overcoat. If not you may get some wrinkling in your base colour which I had on some nails because I was impatient x)

I think the new Crackle Overcoats are very reasonably priced and the large shade range is fantastic. I'm not the biggest fan of Sally Hansen nail polishes to be honest as I think they're just way too overpriced here in Aus for what they are. However I think it's awesome that they've been coming out with more exciting colours, finishes and products lately.

Details: Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoats come in 8 shades and are available now from Target, Kmart, Priceline, Priceline pharmacies and selected pharmacies nationally for $9.95.

Have you tried these new Crackle Overcoats yet? I'm dying to try Distressed Denim and Vintage Violet!

  7. Seems legit, the bottle look so much like deborah lippmann nail lacquers...before i read the headline on my reading list, i actually thought it was deborah lippmann >_<

  8. the gold isn't as noticeable (imo) as the silver but it still looks gorgeous :D

  9. Since I already own silver crackle I would like to try the golden one but from pictures I can't really separate them
