Toetally Tuesday: Crinkled Chrome Wrinkling the Sheets

How naughty is this polish name?? I mean, "wrinkling the sheets"...really? Naughty naughty. Anyway, I will be honest and say this polish is NOT my cup of tea. You guys all know that I absolutely love China Glaze and I buy almost every polish that I can from them but this one is a finish problem for me. Apparently, I absolutely can't stand textured finishes. I can't. They frustrate me. I need a nice thick and smooth top coat finish or my nails will bother me. I added seche vite but even that didn't completely smooth the texture. The color of this polish is to die for though and if it were a jelly or creme I would wear it all the time. To me, the crinkled finish looks like when you don't let your nails dry and harden before you go to sleep, if you know what I'm talking about. Not my favorite China Glaze but I'm glad I gave it a try. I'm not sure when I'll rock this look though. Concerts? I don't know.
What do you think? Is "crinkled chrome" your cup of tea?


  1. Hmm, I like it better on the finger nails instead of on the tootsies. I like it for the simple reason that it reminds me of balled up aluminum foil, lol. . . too weird?

    Also, I decided to play along with your Toetally Tuesday posts. I linked back to you and everything. So credit is given where it is due. Here's the link to it if you'd like to check it out:


  2. totally with you, I guess I'll have capuccino instead, thank you. i can't stand textured finishes either. I don't think I have any in my stash and a nice a smooth silked top coated finish is more me. I don't let trends influence my tastes. I think this one looks better on your toes then on your hand nails and looks quite metallic and stone-ish, very agressive, so, since I hate not using polishes I have in my stash (I am not sure how to use them all out before they dry and become stitchy and ugly), I suggest that you wear it on your feet during concerts or match it with black or do a steam punk look with it using it to design bolts. I more and more like your style and way to say things and feel on the same page.

    1. I'm glad you agree :) I knew it wasn't just me being weird with this polish. Love your style ideas! I will have to see if I can carry off a steam punk look! (odds are I can't but darn it I'll try!)
