Crackle Nail Polishes Comparison (OPI, Barry M., China Glaze), Nail Polishes, and Vivite

I already compared OPI nail polish in Black Shatter to Barry M. in Nail Effects. I was fortunate enough to receive two China Glaze Crackle Glaze polishes thanks to Trinh. She sent me two China Glaze Crackle polishes.
The first one from China Glaze is #981 Crushed Candy.
The other is in #979 Cracked Concrete.
I decided not to do the step by step process I did for OPI vs. Barry M. I didn't see a point. Plus they're already next to each other and you can compare through that. I used the same base nail polish so you can see the difference between the shatter/crackle nail polishes. Unfortunately, it's hard to see it from the China Glaze in Crushed Candy. Sorry about that! :(

In conclusion:
* OPI = It cracks less, the crack tends to be thin and long, and you see less under color base.
* Barry M. = It cracks the most, the crack seems to be a big squares/dots, and you see the most under color base.
* China Glaze = It's between OPI and Barry M.


Other than the shatter/crackle nail polishes, I thought I would show some of the nail polishes I hauled. For this post, it's Revlon that I received from My Fit Beauty.
This is #168 Temptress.
This is #229 Demure.
This is in #440 Siren.
This is in #675 All Fired Up.

Thank you Spankedelic and My Fit Beauty!!! :)


Have anyone heard of Vivite Products? I actually have never heard of this brand. I heard it's a popular brand that has been in magazines like InStyle and Glamour.
Here's some information I found:

"Innovative anti-aging technologies are the core of the Vivite skin care system. The line of Glycolic Acid, peptide, and antioxidant-based products are perfect for those with sun damaged and aging skin who want smoother, firmer, and brighter skin without causing skin sensitivity."

This sounds really promising for aging skin, as well as, younger people who are preventing the signs of aging. I would love to try this product to get rid of my sun damages, freckles and sun spots.

Disclaimer: The products mentioned in this post are bought with my own money except for Barry M, China Glaze, and Revlon. I received Barry M and China Glaze polishes as a gift, and Revlon from a giveaway. I am not affiliated with any company nor getting paid to advertise any products. This post is written with my honest opinion.

I think that out of all the variations on the crackle polishes that I've seen the Barry M. one is my favorite.

I <3 how you do your swatches on those artificial nails. Out of those crackle polishes, I still have to say that the OPI is my fave. And damn, All Fired Up looks hot! =D As for Vivite products, I think I've seen ads for it but have not personally tried them. If you do, please share your thoughts!

(Haha, I'll make sure to include you in my letter to Santa. XP Regarding my background, I just change it whenever I get bored. Which is often...lol)

I know I was shocked at how big he was when he was born. I had to have a cesarean to get him out. Takes after his daddy. Big boys! ;)

Hey btw... I'm having a giveaway on Tuesday. You should definitely enter. :)

Great review! Thanks for the comparison because I haven't used the other two before. I love OPI. I find they last really long! And by the way, your hello kitty bag is too cute :D
