I bought a few of different colours. I used it only a few times and it clumped up and dried out. I couldn't do anything to make it un clumpy. But overall it was fantastic.

pretty and works well
i brought the silver crackle nail polish and i thought that it worked great. i loved having pink underneath the silver! it really stood out and was effective.

I love the crackle look on nails so I thought I would grab myself a bottle and give it a shot. No matter how thin or thick I put it on it did not work. It made my nails look quite nasty:( I thought it wasn't working because I wasn't using a SH nail polish so I decided to a SH nail polish and it still didn't work.

Works for me
When I first got into the shatter polish trend, I decided to go with OPI instead of Sally Hansen as SH crackle polishes have had mixed reviews. Now the trend is over and I decided to give SH a try as they have come down in price. I got Fuchsia Shock as a GWP and Vintage Violet when on special.
The polish seems a bit thin, once applied to my painted nails, the colours are not as rich as OPI shatter. Both polishes crackle as they should, and dry matte. But with a top coat they become shiny.
Shatter polishes, like normal polishes, separate when they are not used frequently. So you do need to shake them thoroughly for them to work. Overall they work well for me, despite the colour intensity.
One downside is the bottle design: they have the crackle polish design in plastic wrap around the paint brush handle, but the wrap isn't tight enough so when you try to open the bottle, the wrap twists with the handle and makes it very hard to open the bottle.

hate is a very strong word but its a word i feel towards this product. I brought it when all my friends were going through a crackle faze and argh i don't understand why, this product was horrible, it looked thick and chunky and not as amazing as any of the pictures. It made my acrylics look fat and really cheap. I kept the bottle incase i changed my mind one day but no matter how many times i tried it, i just still felt the same.

Hit and Miss
When I bought this in Silver I was in love. It was opaque, gave a great crackle and really gave my OPI shades a run for their money. Then I bought the Purple and Red and I was BEYOND disappointed. The formula was streaky and thin. They're a good price but with so many crackles around I won't be spending anymore money on them.

Looks tacky and cheap
Got a bottle of this today in red and was really unhappy. I can't stand the unevenness and imperfections it leaves. Some nails look patterned, others look like mistakes, I hate it.
Overall I think it's the trend that I hate rather than the polish, Saly Hansen is one of my favorites but they have not won me with this.

Did not work
I'm not sure if I got the dud batch or something but my brush was totally out of whack. It didn't stay straight and it was really hard to apply a coat of polish. It didn't even crackle that much. Not impressed.

I own the gold one, really nice with pretty neutrals underneath, and very bling with bright flouro colours instead. Goes on like a dream, and doesn't take too long to dry.
