Laushine Crackle Polish in White: Budget Beauty Shatter

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Shatter/crackle nail polish seems to be a trend that is still very much alive! Almost a year from the time this wave of crackle/shatter polish trend started, all the brands are still going strong. High end, low end, you name it, there's probably a shatter in there somewhere. So of course it's no surprise that eventually coloured shatter would make its way down to the cheapest brands available.

Today's shatter polish is available on Born Pretty Store, and is a nameless Chines brand called Laushine. The crackle polish comes in a variety of colours, but I picked the Laushine White Crackle Polish, at the very reasonable price of US$5.50 per bottle. At that price, it's not bad at all.

The texture of this polish is quite thin, and it dries fast. I recommend applying a slightly thicker coat, but I wouldn't advise applying multiple coats, otherwise the polish takes on a very odd looking texture and looks a little bit thin and brittle. You can see this on the ring finger - there's this bit in the middle that looks a little bit different from the rest of the nail, and that happened when I applied a second coat on that part of the nail. Otherwise, application was smooth and easy, and I have no complaints.

The polish was pretty opaque with a slightly thicker coat, and dried fast and crackled pretty nicely. All in all, I don't have any complaints about the polish at all. For the price I think it's a pretty great buy, and the Born Pretty Store has these shades in a wide range of colours. Must-have colours are white and black, of course, but some of the shades, especially the shimmer ones, are quite unusual and would interest anyone who wants a greater variety of shatter shades (e.g. green shimmer shatter, anyone?).

If you're looking for cheap crackle/shatter polishes that come in a wide range of colours, and if you don't mind ordering online, the Laushine Crackle polishes aren't a bad deal. The Born Pretty Store ships internationally, and shipping is pretty reasonable as well, so they are worth checking out.

  1. Looks interesting...but quite thick.

  2. I'm not a great fan of crackles polish in general, but this one is very very nice! :)
