Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat – Antiqued Gold

When I tried out OPI’s Silver Shatter – I remember thinking, “I really wish there was a Gold Shatter!” So… when I saw Sally Hansen’s Antiqued Gold I knew it had to be mine.

Now we’ve compared Silver Shatter and Fractured Foil and decided that they’re pretty  much the same – and everything about Antiqued Gold echos how I felt about Silver Shatter – thumbs up for the sparkle and metallic fun. Crackle/Shatter has won me over yet again (though I still hate Black Shatter).

However, my biggest disappointment with Antiqued Gold is that it’s not really gold enough for me – It’s a little less gold than in the bottle. In fact, I wore it over a dark blue the other day and it really looked like it was silver, which is why I put it over a bright pink (essence colour&go – ultimate pink) – it definitely looks more gold than over the navy blue (essence – underwater 2.0) – but still, for me – it’s not gold enough.

So all in all – I like it, it’s nice-  but if you want something drastically different from Silver Shatter/Fractured Foil – this isn’t it – I’d hold out for China Glaze’s Tarnished Gold (Scrangie has some great swatches of the China Glaze Crackle Metals here).

Happy Wednesday! And if you didn’t already – wish Alli a Happy Birthday!




  1. I really like the color combination. I can not WAIT to get some of the CG Crackle Metals!

    *Happy Birthday, Alli! Enjoy your special day!*
